What's wrong with either of those? Heroes games of old had boss battles in the form of a stack of 10 Crystal Dragons, this is simply a more unique variation on that. And I would love to not ever get stuck with a choice between 2 skills I don't care about - never having Eagle Eye forced on me again sounds like a huge improvement, no matter how it's implemented.
Ultimately, there's simply no benefit to making a niche genre game into something other than what it is known for. If incorporating elements from other genres bolsters the gameplay here, I think that's great.
And I hope H7 won't be hack'n'slash...
Where you forgot totally about units, but will have a hero (on a horse, elephant, lizard or camel. Oh, you can have spider as well) with skill tree and fight will look like.. hm, WoW.
I've been waiting for H6 sooo long. Had hope that they finally listen ppl cry about original MM roots. But nope - Ubi made something that petrificated me: they abandoned that world for good. And world they give us here? Imitating on middle-age Europe??? C'mon! What, they suffer on lack of their own fantasy?
Graphic: well, I can only tell what I saw on screens - on the first sight I thought i am looking for H5. Then I realized those screens have some differences, but still, it is very similar to H5. I do not know if engine is the same or not, and I do not care in this case, becouse what I see is damn similar to H5!
It is like with Colonization (I mean remake, not an original one). I was so happy when I heard about making it, but when I finally saw it (especially after I finally installed it...), I was a little disappointed. I saw an exactly copy of Civ4 with new units. Damn, they could make a mod for C4, pack it and sell for half a price of that "new" game. Heh, economy kills all nowadays, game included
Will I buy it? Yes, but not with premiere. And only if it won't have DRM or other similar stupid anti-pirate protection.
Will I like it? Dunno yet - I can tell it after I play it. Maybe. But probably I will like it as a game, but not as HoMM.
