Heros 4 thoughts, and the music?

Hey guys, I am new here.
I recently bought heroes 4 for 50 bucks (too much I know, but I really wanted it) and I have played it for a solid month now.

At first I hated this game....TRUE HATRED! But after playing it I am glad I bought it. I am not happy that they changed it soo much.THE SIDE BAR on the adventuring map REALLY BUGS THE HELL OUTA ME!
When I first put the cd in and heard the original heroes 2 cd startup music I was surprised and glad! I though it meant the game woudld be based off the style of heroes 2. It was not fair that they did this just to further mock me for ever liking h2..

well anyways.
THE MUSIC.... I really like most of the music. But some of the tracks make me say " WTF is up with the opera!!! "
Don't get me wrong.. The opera in heroes 2 was good! But in this game I can not stand being the KNIGHTS, or Nature towns, beacuase those 2 have the worst music in the game- thanks to the overbearingly loud, and excessivly long opera singing that goes on in these 2 towns!
It was not so loud in heroes 2 and that is why it worked. In this game, it is about all you hear in those 2 towns. IT SUCKS. The nature is better than the knights song though, which really sucks!
Otherwise the music is good in heroes 4. The chaos music was nicely done. Still, the woman screems a little loud near the end of the song, but at least it is short. I also notice the LACK of variety in the music style..!!
In previous horoes games, the town musics were more diverse, using different instuments/styles, not just one theme based on bagpipes flutes ect... and no piano music anymore..?.....

If they ever make a heroes 5, they need to go BACKWARDS! not forwards! And if they do, DON'T CALL IT HEROES anymore. Cause it won't be the same game. This game, though still great, is not as good as H2 and H3.  It is too d@mned different for it's own good.
For those who wanted somthing new and fresh this is good! BUT for those who wanted another HEROES game, this is bad.

LOL! THIS GAME IS GREAT AND BAD AT THE SAME TIME!
end of rambling.

too loud music?

Theres an easy way to cope with it -- turn down the volume.
After all you can control the volume for music and effects separately...

::Blink blink::  I actually thought the music was better in this game...

The ai music that plays between turns is really cool.  I particularly enjoy the part which repeats the same sectiobn, but adds a new part, like voices, drums, strings...  so on and so forth.  The Haven (Life) music is a little overbearing, I'll agree with you there, but I enjoy the Preserve (Nature) music.  So the woman "screams"?  Big deal, just turn off the music when you go into the town.  The melodies for each terrain are all pretty close to each other, so that it seems as though the music didn't really change.  But it's different enough to generate an atmosphere for the landscape you are on, like in Heroes 3

It seems to be a heroes game to me.  The level up system can't be complained about, since they took it directly from Heroes 3.  The map isn't all that different either, since the view is still aerial, just slanted a bit.  The changes that were made were definitely for the better, I think.

The music is good. Especially the nature music.
I heard that they were thinking about releasing a soundtrack CD, too. I don't think I would have gone for that, though. Buying a CD with that music - frankly it isn't that good.

Not true. "Die Hölle Rachen singt in mein Herzen" (Part of the Magic Flute, by Mozart) are the greatest song ever. It sends shivers down my spine, that good is it!

But yes, the music can be pretty annoying, esp. the one in asylums (that shouting is driving me nuts!!!!!!). The other ones are really not that bad.

Please, make the H5 music a bit different and revolutionary.

My advice: Make it something like the "1492 Conquest of Paradise" soundtrack (scored by Vangelis) It would have been great, wouldn't it?

Well I have my opinion about all the themes !!!  

About Life: The begining of this track is allmost the same as the bacground in church. And It's quite boring and holy... Until the part, when the man begins to sing. Gosh He can wake the dead with that voice... (Points:2/5)

About Order: This track is awsome !!! When I hear it I feel just like, just I will run to do dusting or cleaning...  . And It's quite good to listen, when It's snowing outside.(Points:5/5)

About Death: I like that track too ! In fackt I think that is the best track for Necropolis ever ! When It's playing I can't stop imagine Liches playing on the musical organs !(points:5/5)

About Chaos: The third favorite track in Homm4. The girls chore make that theme even chaotic than ever ! That Women sounds good too ! I like that town's theme. Listening to it I wanna break things down !(Points:5/5)

About Nature: Well This track quite good represents Nature town. Calm and peacefull music. Still it's boring, though...(Points:4/5)

About Might: BORING !!! BORING !!! BORING !!! Somekind of millitary theme (Points:2/5)

You don't have to change it for one angry gamer dude!

I am surprised I generated this many replies!

Rob, the music is some of the best i've ever heard in a game! DOn't take it too bad, Great work here! But yes, the life town is my biggest dissapointment. Not just loud and too long singing, but it isn't any good! Boring. I see a lot of you members like the nature.. Some parts are good indeed, but it is still just too femmy for a tough guy like me. It is not what it could've be!!!

Now that I got a surround setup, heroes 4 rocks rob!! If you are really the one who did the music in these Heroes games, my hat off to you!! You made your mark in the heroes series! You set this game apart from all the heroes clones- LIKE DECIPLES 2... Man! THe music in (any)heroes puts that boring sounding (and playing) game to shame!!

What I would like to hear, is maybe heroes 2 music remodled in 21st century! LOL!
I ain't gona tell you how to do your job, cause you are doing it good enough! 2 bad towns is better than 5!!

Here is my ratings on the music!
Order- boring but ok. 35
Life- boring.. can't hear anything but singing! 15
might- boring. 25
nature- gay? 35 lol! jk!
Death- I agree with that one guy, Best death ever! 55
Chaos- great! 55
End turn music- only 1 track, but it is awesome! 55 Makes waiting for you turn much more pleasant!

Some of the adventuring music is great too! But I hope you get the heroes 2 style ice music back if you guys make H5!

Turn down the music??? That is not what I mean guys! I mean the singing was louder than the theme, so all you here is an annoyingly loud male voice singing in the life town!!!!!

Finnaly I wish to state, that I do enjoy heroes 4 greatly, I posted this thread cause musics like the life music makes me wonder what went wrong.
I also think it was a very fun game to play! WHat I mean by not going forwards in the heroes series is not changing it soo drastically again. Or before you know it, we will have a Real Time Heroes games on our hands!!! Change can be good. But not too much!
MASTER OF MAGIC is still the king of turn based strategy!!!

OH!!! Does the expansions offer only 1 new music? If so then that is one more reason I won't buy it, and just get it for free off kazaa er somthing!!! :0
30 bucks for a few measly maps! HA! I can make my own maps!

A lot of people call nature femmy, but I think it's perfect for a nature town. In fact, it's the best music in h4, followed by order, chaos, death, might and life. In fact, life doesn't deserve even the last place. GOD I HATE THAT MUSIC!!!

But nature rocks. In h3, the rampart music was the best without a doubt. Unfortunately, that's really no comparison because all the other music sequences in that game were beyond horrible.

Well, in my opinion, music in HOMM4 is really good - especially the Asylum and Preserve tracks, the other are also decent, but a bit boring. Nevertheless, I think they should go back to HOMM3 - the Rampart and Necropolis (especially the Necro, with that haunting, fading out harpsichord tune in the ending of the track) were the best music compositions I've heard in a computer game. Even more challenging tracks - like the Stronghold theme (barbarians usually have the worst music in games - and here it was so monumental, so - I would say - aerial, especially in the beginning) - were very, very good. And one more thing - they shouldn't be afraid to add some melody instead of pure illustrative music. If it is well composed, it doesn't get boring ever - the best example is the elven town's track in HOMM2.

I see you are all hung up on the Town music.

OK, but the best music track on HoMM4, is definitively the 'Subterranian Theme,' that you can sometimes hear when visiting mines (since NWC used dirt, subterranian, rough, etc. as terrain under mines, as you've all probably noticed...). However, like I said, that track is magnificent!
Too bad it's not more subterranian terrain on the maps....

The lava/volcanic terrain theme is also quite good. it's kinda emotional in a way, especially when you're playing the 1st map of the Half-Dead campaign, when you're reading about the tragic life of Gauldoth with that music in the backgroung... *sniff* so sad, yet so beautiful. *sniff*
