Heroes Of Might And Magic 2: Gold is the ultimate edition of one of the most popular classic turn-based strategy games. Players manage resources to improve their towns, build armies based around single hero units and eventually take over a map.
With nearly 25 years of games, the Might and Magic franchise has become a cult classic with fans. The high fantasy world of dragons and magicians and battle system have become defining mainstays with many considering Heroes Of Might And Magic 2: Gold to be the ultimate example. With a turn based battle system, the dated graphics are less impactful on the solid gameplay. Heroes Of Might And Magic 2: Gold does a fantastic job of managing a difficulty curve, with many dedicated fans playing to this day. With the gold edition including the expansion and soundtrack, this is a great entry point for interested gamers.
Still the best
Considered by the fans to be the best in the series (and contender for best strategy game overall), Heroes Of Might And Magic 2: Gold still feels fresh and engaging to this day. While slightly outdated in terms of overall look and sound, the game's wide praise and active community highlight the quality of this cult gem. Fans of the strategy genre will love this game while some less experienced gamers may be unable to scratch beneath the dated exterior.
