Summary

Entertaining predecessor to the Heroes series

The Good

King's Bountry started the Heroes of Might and Magic series. We have it to thank for the timeless classic Heroes II that so many of us played until our drives or CDs broke, Heroes III, the pinnacle of the series which is indescribably excellent, and the very different but entertaining-in-its-own-way Heroes IV.

The Bad

Entertaining for 10 minutes. If you've played the Heroes series, this feels incredibly weak compared to it, but still fun because you know you're playing where it all began.

The Bottom Line

If you don't collect games, you have no reason to start on the painful search for this old title. But if you collect games in general or the Heroes series, or Might and Magic games, you really shouldn't pass this up.
