Heroes of Might and Magic Online – Big mistake!


 
Way back, before most of you were born I played a game called Heroes of Might and Magic, it was a wonderful turn based strategy game set in a fantasy world, you had your heroes, your foes, building your cities, and most of all you traveled around hunting for treasures. Most of all the game had some excellent sound effects, pretty little neat “bonus-sounds” that really made you feel like “Wow I really found some nice treasures here!”.

I just had to try this, being free and all..
Before you read any further – This game is so bad it pains me, really it does.

Most browser games are better done than this actually. The sound is terrible, the graphics poor and the effects nonexistent – I mean there’s really nothing.. No shadows, no fog, no animations. Actually I had to install HOMM II from 1996 just to compare them, and Jesus, the game from 1996 actually looks better, sounds better and plays better.

Painfully stupid
The GUI is painfully stupid, with locked windows unmovable, the text most of the time unreadable and parts of it still in some Asian language.. I mean hey.. WTF.. If this game is aimed at the Asian market you have to have some pretty low thoughts about Asians..

What makes me lose my nerve is how UbiSoft can let their game get raped like this?

If you have to try this out despite of the above, god luck!

OMG! HOW COOL IS THIS??

Face of Mankind is back

Maybe some of you remember the game Face of Mankind? It had grand plans years back, but the mmo community never really found it’s way into the game. Maybe the game was to complicated with 8 factions, player ruled governing etc.

Factions were led by a leader who was elected by their members and used their abilities to take colonies, make deals with other factions to help control the market or hire out as mercenaries. Individual players was citizens of the Dominion, banded together in their factions they become a force to fear.

Sounds good in theory right? Yes it was, but way to complecated in reality tbh. The game died and now it’s back again. Open Beta starts now.

Be sure to check it out!
