I bought it half-price, went straight to 1.2 and it's crashing every 10mins. I'd say stay the hell away from this pile of junk!

Are there any threads around here that discuss actual CTD fixes?

So this is now available at 50% of the RRP @ Zavvi. I'm thinking of treating myself to a game over the festive period, (and I need a break from Skyrim!) - is it worth it, even at this price, with all the problems to date??

GameSpy Reviews Heroes VI

They know this game is for a niche market. Yet they deliberately seek to alienate that same market with their infernal DRM! Patch it out now, or there's no way I'm buying it.

'fraid so....

I'm sorry, but there's no way I can buy it in its current state.

@jeff - this isn't about retailer exclusive pre-order bonuses, this is far, far worse my friend!

Let me get this straight. If you wish to play the singleplayer mode 'normally' i.e - offline, you cannot equip your hero with key artifacts? (including the one's you get from normally advancing the storyline?) You don't get campaign starting bonuses either? If you do opt to use these items (of your ...

Pity you can't properly save games in the demo. That kind of killed it for me. The demo is extremely short and not good because it's just a small tutorial. The game itself is awesome and I love it because there is a lot of depth that makes it fun (that you don't see at all in the demo). So if you a...

Well it is now available from Ubisoft and Steam here in the UK. Surely at least Steam has universal EU release dates? At 12 quid though, it's a tad pricey. (does anyone recall how much the Xbox version was?) Downloading the Steam demo now. But will maybe wait for a Steam sale with a heavy discount b...

So I thought this was supposed to be out today? No sign of it on the Ubisoft site. I guess as a download only title it'll be released through their online shop, no? I'd even settle for a Steam release - but there's no mention of it anywhere :(

"Bring back the attack skill for creatures."

Wot, are you telling me that creatures don't have any attack values?? Does not compute :(

Time to implement proper town screens then? Don't think Ubi's press release gave any reason for the delay apart from general polishing though....

This is excellent news! Throughly enjoyed the DS version and can't wait to sample a HD makeover on the PC, been waiting for it for ages!

Plays nothing like a typical Heroes game of course, it just ploughs its own furrow as a brillant little strategy title all of its own.

But now that all towns can be build portals, surely combining armies under one main hero is going to be easier?

Fixing Fleeing

Question for those playing the beta: do enemy heroes still flee frustratingly early when they know they are about to be defeated? (like in H5) I really wish they'd introduce more rewards for the player when the enemy flees. AI heroes belonging to factions like Haven should offer the player gold to s...

By 'junk' hero I mean those heroes you recruit simply to run errands like collecting resources from windmills, ferrying troops to your main hero etc. Not a deliberately ill-planned hero with Eagle Eye as his main skill or something. A team of heroes specialising in their own set of complimentary ski...

I too don't quite meet the minimum requirements (on the CPU side) and would rather not want the hassle of ordering something and then cancelling it after I find out, with beta access, that it runs like a dog. Mind you, playing the demo of HOMMV put me off buying it for years! Still would like one fo...

H5 had some interesting skills and it would of be nice to 'plan' you ideal hero, but the randomness destroyed that. I'm hoping that the new system of H6 will let you design heroes to take on specific roles (trainer, logistics etc) and make 'junk' heroes less likely - for those who have played the be...

Whilst the relative appreciation of aesthetics obviously varies widely between fans, I find the inclusion of an oriental faction a little off-putting in such a classic Western turn-based strategy title. And I've said this before but, the units are too diverse to look like a cohesive army. Strange ho...

Care to explain why you rank Sanctuary so highly, Crag? When I do finally get my hands on a copy of the game, I plan to take an instant irrational dislike of all things Sanctuary, just because they ousted three classic factions just to accomodate them... :)

The Total War series did this of course to decent effect, but how would it work in a pure turn-based grid combat set up? Even if the map did try to scale to accomodate multiple armies, your'e still left with a square grid - and placement of rival armies would still end up with opposition units artif...
