No, where the real joy of Heroes III: Complete
lies is in the gameplay. And it has a ton of it. In fact, technically thereís a near-infinite amount of gameplay, as H3C
comes with a random level generator.
But I get ahead of myself. When you start up Heroes III: Complete, youíre presented with a few different options. You can play a single mission, of which there are a ton (~150), or play a campaign. There are three campaigns that come with H3C -- Restoration of Erathia (the original title), Armageddonís Blade (the expansion pack), and The Shadow of Death, a campaign that was added to a re-release of the original. Each of these campaigns has groups of missions for another ton of levels.
And if you wear all -that- out, thereís a highly-configurable random map generator.
And if you wear all THAT out, you can use the included Level Editor and Campaign Editor to make your own scenarios and campaigns.
Yes, this is simply a repackaging of older goods. It doesnít matter, really. With this much gameplay in a box, itís worth it.
The gameplay itself, of course, is the same thing that all Heroes fans have come to know and love. The missions range from short to day-long (and thatís in our time, not game time), and from easy to hard. There are tons of different ďsidesĒ you can be on, and you can take over cities from the other sides to get those troop types. Itís all highly entertaining, and itís kept me amused since the original title.
