Heroes of Might and Magic IV
-The Gathering Storm
-Winds of War
In HOMM IV, it has six battles. Also, for people who likes making their own stories, HOMM IV also has a variety of little maps. The players can make their own bettles by consisting of different kind of maps. There are map editor and battle editor for players. You can build your battles by using these editors.
For old players of Heroes of Might and Magic series, they will be confused when they first meet HOMM IV. It is quite different from the first three HOMMs. HOMM IV consists of many other game's elements. For example, the quick fight or combat system is from Age of Wonders and Warlords. Another example is that the players will meet walking around enemies who fight the players on their own initiative, same with the game Disciples II.
The two most different elements of HOMM IV are that heroes will join the fight, not only stand beside the troops, conjure, and make decisions of offensive or defensive, and troops can move on the map without heroes.
So the fact is that the players separate two extreme parts. Players who likes HOMM IV says it is classic, while others who dislike it think that it is nothing.
