I don't often write reviews, but many of the amateur articles I've read about the Reincarnation edition of Disciples III have been deplorable and unfair. I am 35 and a lifelong PC gamer. I love strat games. Chess is my #1 game in general and there are few other strategy games I appreciate.
If you know and remember Master of Monsters (Sega Genesis), I say this edition of D3:R is worth your cashola. There are no bugs I've seen (Win 7, nice compy, blah blah). In fact, it's one of the more solid games I've played. I like that I can Alt-Tab out and do other things; the sound stops, the game stays static and contained, totally dependable. I have often kept my Disciples campaign running for days, just clicking into the window to make a few moves and then going about my business, not unlike how I play chess.
There are threads and threads of bad press about this game in its past forms. I tell you, this game is gold -- extremely reasonably priced -- and a great work of art the series of which has culminated in something I am absolutely enjoying. Feel comfortable sending me a question if you like. I'd be happy to defend this software in my private time.
