Heroes 6 is a good game if you enjoy that style of gaming. Looks good, plays well, etc.
Sadly its dev history is a little… spotty (and was actually the trigger for this post, though I never mentioned Heroes 6 directly). Patch 1.5 was a long time coming, and while the balance changes were nice, it was a little light considering how long it took to produce.
Oh, and it also borked the game. Whoops.
No worries though, the 1.5.1 fixes the issue. And creates a new one. Whoops x2.
And as nice as town screens are, the fact that Heroes 6 shipped without simultaneous turns in multiplayer is atrocious. That it’s months later and the game STILL does not have them, or even plans to introduce them, is beyond words.
My frustration with Heroes 6 is similar to my frustration with Darkfall or Atlantica; all three are very enjoyable games that really do a lot of things well, but are made unnecessarily difficult to enjoy. Heroes 6 for its spotty support, Darkfall for its lack of updates, and Atlantica for its business model.
Is it really too much to ask for devs to make a solid game and not screw it up at some point?
