TURN Based Strategy

I literally created an account just so that I can say this is a TURN Based Strategy game, not Real Time Strategy. The game is good although from the modern ones I prefer 7. But if you're going to introduce a kid to Heroes, I'd recommend starting with Heroes 3.

Is It Any Good?

Might & Magic Heroes VI is the latest in the long-running real-time strategy (RTS) series. The storied franchise has a strong and loyal following, but has historically been focused on catering to the hardcore gaming crowd. RTS games are known for being difficult, time-consuming, and mentally challenging. That said, those gamers who are dedicated enough will find this to be an ultimately rewarding experience with great visual effects. The slew of options for battle strategy and city building will be a delight to the select audience that can truly enjoy the game. It isn't for everyone, but those players for whom this game is designed will likely thoroughly enjoy it.
