Looks like HOMM V will be much better then I expected.
The fact that it picks a lot of things from HOMM III is a good thing since HOMM III was best game in series. HOMM IV made a lot of nice things but had a lot of flaws as well (AI being one of those). Actually, I liked some changes HOMM IV introduced, like fightning heroes and different magic system but game felt like you play alone with bunch of monsters on the map with brain dead AI.
Graphics look great too and combat system in HOMM V insn't bad either (not very different from HOMM III but it has some important changes).

Yeah, this gonna be better then Heroes 3 even. The demo first campaign mission is hard, the AI is playing very well I must say. The game gonna be big fun in MP until Doms 3.

I remember reading in many forums opinions such as that "TBS is dead". I'm not saying that there is a TBS flood but consider the releases this year: Civ IV, GC-II, HOMM-V, SE-V, DOM-III. I also read somewhere that Diciples-III (renaissance)is in development. All of those are at least solid, well, maybe its the TBS renaissance

I've spent some time with the demo now and it looks like it will be a great game.

I have to disagree with Tharivol - I don't think it looks exactly like HoMM3. Even if you discount taking it from 2D to 3D, changes in the magic and skills systems (from H3, anyway)make it noticeably different.

It does, of course, retain the flavor and feel of the Heroes series though. so - woohoO!

I purposefully avoided the beta due to reports of bugs and the whole Starforce debate. But with the release of the demo and the news that Ubi is dropping Starforce for this title means H5 is right at the top of my list. I already ordered Dom3, so between the two titles, it looks like my game time is pretty booked for a while. =)

I agree and things are looking good for 2006.

Civ IV is solid, after patches and a rough start.

I have the demo of HoMM V; I haven't played any of the other games in the series.

The game seems fine, there are a lot of choices and I can't seem to figure out the plot i.e. where to go after I capture the first city and how to rest/rejuvenate my units...

But what the heck, it is a demo.

Definitely 3 was the best of the series so far... we'll have to see if Heroes_V meets expectations.
