Heroes V is Out!

""Yaayy! :) I got my Supercollectors'!"
How about some pictures of what's inside?!"

NP. There you go:
That's when you open the box: http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/p ... oinbag.jpg
There's this silver coin inside, one of which is actually golden: http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/preview2/coin.jpg
(not mine, though, obviously ;) )
Then the EU collectors comes out of the box: http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/p ... thebox.jpg
Note Fabrice's signature :) http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/p ... nature.jpg
And that's an inside-view of the collectors edition: http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/p ... ectors.jpg
Edit:
I also uploaded an all-those-innerts shot (which unfortunately got out of focus): http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/p ... tstuff.jpg
And that's the world map: http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j91/p ... rldmap.jpg

Help, I can't stop!!! lol Fifth mision, I've been playing for hours. The game is the best of the series but it has some flaws... I hope that the upgrades (and the promised level editor) would makes us forget them.

Wow, 27 comments and no complains? Amazing. Well done guys. Enjoy the game. After all this waiting I think that we all deserved to enjoy in it. Long live Heroes. I hope we will see expansions for #5, but maybe we could even hope to see #6.

I have probably offended you in this post. if you take it too harshly, it's your own responsability. I, for my part, never intended to.

I just finished the first map and the game is very enjoyable. The interface has been greatly polished, the game runs better than ever, I don't have any sound problem anymore. And most importantly, it's fun.

Hey Angelspit, can you post your inital thoughts (more extensively) in some kind of review? I think we'd all value your opinion. (Well, I will be buying it anyhow, but would still be interested if it lives up to all expectations).

You got yours already? I thought that North America's games weren't shipping until tomorrow, then two more days wait to receive it? Well I guess I waited this long …

Still waiting. It's a friday release in the UK. I know my local GAME had it in their delivery yesterday. Obviously they can't sell until the 19th.... the dummy preorder box just sits there teasing me :-(

I received the game early because I got a European Collector's Edition (and I must say that the packaging is the prettiest I have ever seen). I would still be waiting if I had gotten a U.S. edition.

I might write a mini-review later, there is still so much work to be done on CH. I will only say that there are minor annoyances in the game, but things we will get used to I guess, just like in Heroes IV. The game is worth the wait, don't worry folks. And that intro movie (which you can download on the UK site) is on par with what Blizzard did in Warcraft III.
