"Innovative mix of rpg and rts"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I brought this game because of its interesting concept, a mix of hero development and the chance to control hundreds of units on screen. Your hero will be at the center of the show, becoming a single man army later on. You can level and develop skills while picking up loot.

The levels are varied and filled with hundreds of neutral creatures. Overall, it is something different, a good play but you should definitely download the patch on its website otherwise you will run into lots of bugs.

"Great game, but had problem running it"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The game itself is very good, but this game is quite “old” therefore it might have trouble running on newer graphics cards, you might get video memory too low error and can't see a thing in game. Especially for ATI graphic cards, I had to install a mod of the game to be able to run it, and because it's a mod it is quite buggy and the game just crashes sometimes. If you have any graphics problem with this game, check out http://hoae.ucoz.net/forum/2-33-1, which might enable you to play the game.

"Love this game!!"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Veyr good game! If you like Age of Empires and Warcraft then this os for you. Its basically a mix of the two: the army size and game play of AOE and the Hero style of Warcraft – except you hero can go up unlimited levels (unlike the 10 max of Warcraft) and you can buy and pick up spells and armour. I enjoyed the single player campaign – challenging but fun. I've got a couple of these to play lan with friends.

Description

Beginning with a rather ordinary man, you shall walk your path, gathering your followers around, coming through treachery, death of friends and leaving new hope behind. Be aware, that there are a lot of tribes that do not interfere with war, both aggressive and friendly, they may help you in your quest or become an enemy. Do not disregard them, as they are a strong force that can decide the outcome of battle or be a source of side quests.

Searching for magical artifacts, treasures and lost attainments you may explore ancient ruins and dangerous dungeons. Gaining experience, you will grow stronger. Growing stronger you will build bases were you can train your troops and eliminate foes in the area. Mastering devastating and constructive spells, your hero will summon magic creatures, enchant his soldiers' abilities and wipe out hundreds of dare encounters with powerful force of his knowledge.

When choosing your race, choose carefully, as they are a complete difference from each other and your choice will affect the gameplay. Some of them are strong at offence, while some are better at defense, some base their development and strategy on magic and others bet on war machinery or brute force. There are hundreds of strategic decisions in the battle and researches of new upgrades, there are a lot of parameters that should be considered by commander, if he is after victory. Do not forget about morale and experience of your soldiers, think about landscape advantages and use spells not only to kill the enemy, but to support your forces as well and you shall prevail. Rush without thinking and let enemy dance on your bones. Be wise. Be strong. Be a hero!
