Sigh. Don't jump to conclusions. I meant magazines. I don't see what's the point of buying magazines when there are free reviews on the Internet everywhere.

Otherwise what's the point in review To satisfy the distributor with the crap he wants to see in the review. Otherwise no new games for you, reviewer. :) This. I trust independent reviews more. I don't buy magazines myself, mind, but that's mostly because I'm not a gamer (and because I don't see wh...

Pavlovich. Well, if you want to be really precise, Slava is a diminutive form, odd for a mature man, so it should be something like Vyacheslav Pavlovich. The Russian translation avoided patronymics altogether, instead saying "Vyacheslav, son of Pavel".

Names should be pronounced the same way as in their language of origin. Yes, but it is not always done in practice. See various city names, for instance: in English, Moskva is pronounced Moscow, Napoli Naples, Roma Rome, Venezia Venice. If we can accept that, I don't see the big problem. This, my d...

I doubt it. Names should be pronounced the same way as in their language of origin. (For example, Mukao is pronounced Moo-kah-o, even though if it was an English name, it would be pronounced Mew-kei-o). The translation of the English and German initial H as G is a historical Russian translation trad...

No. Likewise, "Eye-rina" is an error. The Russian version corrected this.

If you have a puny creature growth, reload. The bug should go away. If it's still not enough, fully develop both your Sanctuaries. You can help with some Stronghold troops, too. There are two prisons giving you a large number of maulers and dreamwalkers, and you can upgrade them in your Stronghold t...

If you think the English voice acting is bad, you should hear the Russian version. It really seems like the Russian VAs didn't even care the slightest bit about the text they were asked to read out. Maybe it's because I'm a Russian, but I think the English voice acting is okay. Not great, just okay.

Also, I really think someone should make a mod disabling weeks of fever/festivals/whatever. It's just frustrating when you barely fight off an AI attack, only to discover that you'll have almost no population growth this week. As for Sanctuary 3, I'm playing on normal. I captured the second Sanctuar...

Reloading from the week after works just as well. Basically, reloading the game fixes incorrect income no matter what week it is.

Tribes of the East was H5 done right.

H6 is H6... not done right. Yet. Give it a couple of expansions, as usual.

The Sanctuary campaign loading screen

Stupid question, I know, but who is it depicted kneeling with her sword? Irina? And what's that sea monster thingy? I don't remember such a creature in the game.

Re: 1. No, VI has a larger battlefield actually.
Re: 2. Not on the battle map, at least. Or at least I don't know a way.

Here are my particular best picks among all games except H1, in no particular ranking order.

H2 Grass
H3 Main menu
H3 Castle town
H4 Academy town
H5 Haven town/Haven campaign/main menu (since they're basically remixes of the same thing)
H6 Main menu
H6 Irina's theme

Yes, if you've already chosen Blood specialization for Sandor, you cannot complete the quest to free the slaves. Your only option now is to destroy the Orc Rebels.

I've noticed that sometimes in campaigns, newly flagged mines or towns don't bring the full income they're supposed to put out. I fix it by restarting the game.

What I did was trying to avoid sieging enemy towns as much as possible. I took Logistics and went for the Legions of Pain (red) first, after capturing the neutral town. I waited until the red hero went for my town, then when he was halfway between the towns, I went to the lane above him, trying to b...
