Our game review Heroes 3 HD Download :
Reviewing Heroes III HD Download is a bit like reviewing a new car paint color or a new book cover. Yes, you can, but you have to remember that inside it is still the same content – with all its advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, I am not going to talk about what Heroes III is cool, iconic and strategic, and I will not argue about the balance.
Heroes 3 HD Download version is it that beautiful?
So let’s get down to business. What’s new in Heroes of Might & Magic III HD? HD graphics! That’s it. OK, there is also the Steam lobby, achievements, and a new online game mode (which replaced LAN mode) that allows you to avoid problems with connecting to the network, but this is not what the average player focuses on. So what can be said about the essence of HD editing and therefore the mentioned graphics? Of course it depends on your taste, but in my opinion in most cases it is actually better. This is especially visible on the adventure map, where in the original version some items were pixelated and it was sometimes difficult to see what they are (e.g. some artifacts). After a painstaking effort (35,000 hours!) Of reworking each animation frame in Photoshop to be about 3 times larger, everything here is clearer and sharper. It should be noted, however, that the authors themselves admit that the original H3 graphics are not bad at all, even after all these years. So the real improvement in graphics is there, it’s clear, but it doesn’t suddenly make the game a graphical marvel. After all, the smoothness of the animation has not been increased, no special effects have been added, or the 3D dimension has not been added. It’s still the same nice 2D graphics, only … clearer. The units are clearer, the campaign videos are clearer (but without exaggeration, because they are far from HD), the adventure map is clearer and the interface is clearer. Interestingly, you can switch to the “old” version of the graphics at any time by pressing the F2 key, so you can easily see the difference between the two versions. Graphically, the game fares very well. Of course, there are some mishaps, as well as elements that were not very successful in retouching (e.g. the portrait of cyclops is terrifying), but in general, the vast majority of graphics are positive.

Heroes 3 Download a few words about the elements
We’ve already said what’s in the game, so now let’s move on to what’s not. Unfortunately, there’s nothing that was introduced in Armageddon’s Blade and Shadow of Death. This is the biggest disadvantage of the HD edition, repeated ad nauseam by players. This is also the main reason why the average user rating on Steam at the time of writing this article is just 55%. And in fact, 15 years on, the elements that really made Heroes III hit its heights are really missing. So the following is missing: a random map generator, the ninth faction – the Gate of the Elements, two sets of campaigns and scenarios (which effectively gives us access to only 1/3 of the maps compared to the Complete version), additional heroes like Gelu or Sir Mullich, many neutral units (where are my mighty dragons?) or foldable artifacts. Restoration of Erathia was a solid foundation for Heroes III, but still a foundation – which could and should be extended. We know from behind the scenes that the reason for releasing only the basic version of the game was the lack of source codes for later versions with add-ons. On the one hand, it is somehow understandable that the authors did not have too many financial and time possibilities to recreate the source codes from scratch, especially those from 15 years ago. However, this understanding does not make the shortcomings less visible and less criticized by players. Besides, there was no attempt to add anything new. After all, it seems that adding a new hero or a new artifact would not cost much. Heroes 3 HD Download
Heroes 3 HD Download Angels in HD mode?
Coming back to the positives, the game was also released on tablets with Android and iOS systems, which can definitely contribute to its success. However, be careful, because the resolution of tablets is sometimes not high enough to properly appreciate the quality of “HD graphics”. Originally Heroes 3 Download was at 800×600 resolution, so if your tablet is only 1024×768, the graphics quality improvement will necessarily be rather small.
Another plus is the fact that all maps created for Restoration of Erathia are fully compatible with the HD version. So if you have your favorite scenarios or you are the author / author of such maps yourself, you can transfer them to this version and play in high definition without hesitation. You can even generate a random map in the regular H3 editor and move it too.
Requirements as in hd?
The minimum requirements for this version of the game are surprising – rather negatively. The creators demand, inter alia, 2 GB RAM, at least nVidia GeForce 8800GT graphics card with DirectX 10 support and a newer operating system (from Windows 7 up). While I would have to look well to find a PC with less than 2 GB of RAM today, the system requirement can be a big problem for people who stayed with XP or Vista, because despite the authors’ claims that the game should also start on older systems, players report there is a problem with this after all. Besides, for a game whose minimum requirements were originally 32 MB of RAM and Windows 95, such a jump in the requirements for improving the quality of 2D graphics (because not the 3D display functions) seems a bit exaggerated. Okay, but you will say that I am exaggerating that it is 2015 and no self-respecting player has an “archaic” computer with Windows XP and 1GB of RAM (which will not be true, but let’s assume). Okay, but the problem is that many players report that even on modern computers the game has … performance issues. The computer’s turn can be indecently long, and the animations in some “cut”. Anyway, I noticed that when switching to the city screen, the game can “hang” for a second, probably loading graphics. It’s not a big deal, but it is visible.
Heroes 3 Download Complete version or hd which is better?
The difference is visible and, at least visually, the game is more enjoyable than on the stretched screen of the regular edition or in the “HD mod” version, which – contrary to the claims that appear – does not provide similar functionality as the HD version of Ubisoft. Besides, it’s still the same great Heroes III RoE gameplay – it hasn’t been spoiled by some brilliant ideas straight from Heroes VI, though nothing new has been introduced either. Anyway, what am I talking about? Fans would buy the new H3 edition even if the only novelty was the brick added to the game. And to the rest of the players, especially those who did not play the original version of Heroes III Download , I would probably recommend the “regular” Complete version. It will not be so pretty, but it will contain 3 times more maps and campaigns that I will not mention such “trifles” as a random map generator or an additional faction.
However, if we manage to add extras to the HD version, we will be able to talk about the real return of the king.
