As I suspected, HoMM5 wasn't shaping up very well.

Testers weren't happy with it and it's been delayed. Hopefully Nival/UBi will take their criticisms into consideration.

Ive played the open beta, the game sucks a lot. It is so buggy. A lot of the games don't work, and people are complaining about crashes. Sound messes up during loading, and a lot of the spells dont work either. Really poor showing for an Open Beta. Feels more like an Alpha to me.

Well thats why its a beta. Its not meant to run properly. But the changes they make are a good thing. I can only think of how Square games would be if they had open beta for criticisms. Lord knows Dirge would never have been released.

Either way, best M&M game thats coming is Dark Messiah. And thats a bloody statement you can take to the bank.

That doesn't bode well for HoMM5 or the series

Pray for it! Pray with the power of NOSTALGIA! Never know really. Beta tests have seriously impoved some games in the past.

Usually the game runs 95% of the time by beta, not 20%.
Im sure the game will improve, I think its a 4 month long beta.
And yes Dark Messiah wins
