Heroes of Hellas 3: Athens
Use if relaxation is needed
I play this game after getting home from work. It is perfect because it doesn?t involve much brain power, and I don?t have to hunt or find things. Lots of repetition but that?s what helps me unwind. I like this 3rd game better than the 1st game (the first one is great too but it is timed). I like this game a lot, and it was definitely worth my money.

One of My Favorites!
This was my first 'Heros' purchase and I've since purchased the two prior. I love the explosions and multiple-block linking instead of the traditional moving of blocks. There are changes from the prior versions, some better, some not, but well worth playing over and over again! Hint: Use your power ups as soon as they are fully charged!

Heroes of Hellas
I love all the series of Heroes of Hellas match 3 games.

I usually don't like the chain match three games but this one is great! Graphics are beautiful, story is great and this game sure holds your attention. Mostly I find it really cute with all the ppl building the city. Best match three game since Fishdom and Farmscapes . Really worth the $ and worth a try.

I'm playing it again
I rarely play a game twice once I've gotten all the achievements, but this was really fun. The sounds are very satisfying, and it's challenging enough to take some strategy, yet rewarding enough to be entertaining.

Really fun game, not too challenging early on
This is much the same as HH2 but probably a little more fun in the visual department. Again, the bigger window makes game play and minigames nicer to do. Interesting new concepts and just generally a good way to pass time.

This is a fun game but not really challenging.

Another Heroes of Hellas Winner!
Really liked this game. Like the other Heroes of Hellas games it was fun and challenging. It was also addicting! I kept playing thinking "okay, just 1 more game and I'll go to bed". Ha! I just love all of these games as I really, for some reason, like to "build" a city or design homes or whatever premise they use. Love it. And they give a lot of bang for your buck, this is a long game and it gives you a nice mythology lesson. Sort of.

Great game, but buggy
I love the Heroes of Hellas series and this one is no exception. It has everything you could ask for: gorgeous graphics, great story, and fantastic power ups in the form of heroes. The levels get progressively harder and it requires a little thinking and not just randomly matching to get past them. It has the bombs and hermes wings from HofH2, but has added "big bombs" which clear more area. The heroes are a bit different too - in who they are AND what they do.
The mini-games are not really to my taste (hidden object scenes and treasure hunters - rapid matching), but I can overlook that for the great play. It has about 100 regular levels and 30 bonus levels. 15 of the bonus levels are puzzle levels like in HofH2 - which is my favorite part of the game. You earn laurel leaves for the bonus levels that you can use to build a palace at the end.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because the graphics are so intense that sometimes the game will freeze and you have to restart. Other than that, another great game in the Heroes of Hellas series! I highly recommend it.
