I have purchased this game a while ago but only recently I had a chance to play it.
While HoMM, AoW, and Disciples series may have their own merits, this is the game that I was looking for. Namely, a Fantasy strategic WAR game.

In this game, logistics and grand planning matter.
This is a very rare game that handles grand warfare in a fantasy world very well.

* Learning the game might take some time. But tutorial is good. And play a small game with only one AI. Then move to medium map with 3 AI. After several games, you know what to do.

BLUF: This game's pretty awesome, if you can get past the ancient graphics and focus on the creative/imaginative aspects.

I loved the game. Yes, it is complex, but I think the complexities are actually exagerated. It's basically raise armies, research spells, invade provinces, collect gold, etc. But somehow I find it 20x more engrossing than any other "4x" game (which I don't think it quite is). There are little quirks, like that it is turn-based, but then all the movement happens at once for everyone, seasons affect gold income, but they also affect how many mushrooms grow in the forest for your witches to collect, and it's all these quirks and the plethora of races to play that make the game world feel alive. I love how you are slowly introduced to the lore; it never feels like a chore to read it to get into the game, you just pick up some of it as your priests randomly summon some ultra-powerful seraphim that then randomly gets itself killed by wandering around the map.

Sure, there's certain techniques that are pretty powerful, and certain races in certain ages are far stronger than others, but it's a game you can learn, and like life not everything has to be balanced. It's fun to learn, fun to play, and fun to experiment with. Enjoy, especially if it's on sale (though I get all my games on sale :)). Also, check out Conquest of Elysium. Same developers, also very interesting game, and generally much cheaper.

A rather interesting game where you attempt to rule over the land with your new diety and wipe out all opposing gods. Simplistic in its design, it still has some veriety with loads of magical items, lots of magic spells, and insane amounts of troop types.

Dominions III > Civ V.
Brilliant. If "Fall From Heaven" (Civ IV mod) met grand strategy simulation.
Glorious & wicked: if the graphics were realistic the game would be illegal.
Imaginationless megalomaniacs need not apply.

I'll expand this reveiw at some point, but the short version is:
Tons of Units
Lots of Customizability

Don't let the graphics fool you, beneath its dull exterior lies a creamy center full of Strategic goodness.

Strategies center around the nation you choose and how you design your Pretender God. Battles are decided by how you form up your troops and the orders you issue to them before each fight.

If you like strategy games and a fantasy setting, you really should not pass this one up.

Dominions 3 stands as one of my favorite strategy games of all time. It's not really that similar to anything else; the combat is all automatic, and your main job (as a god) is to manage your empire, build armies, build forts, research and cast spells, and plan out where your armies will go.

The graphics are sufficient for the job they do, and there's a plethora of addtional mods and maps and what not available for it.

All told, i quite recommend it to any fans of strategy who are looking for something a little different.

I highly recommend this game to any strategy enthusiasts or fans of mythology out there. I'll go ahead and get the (tiny) amount of bad out of the way - the game has an unusual user interface, and selection of units can be especially tedious sometimes. With that detail out of the way, I only have good to say about Dominions 3. The writing in the game is top-notch, and very detailed. You often have to play multiple races to get a fuller picture of the history, but it's rich and satisfying once you put it together. The Tuatha and the Fomorian Giants are a good example. The game plays in a standard fashion with territories and movement, much like other turn-based games. However, to locate the useful goodies in a territory, you'll have to cultivate a few powerful mages, to find hidden sites that can provide mana gems, unique units for recruitment, or unique effects once unearthed. You'll need them (and magi once again) for the forging of magical items to equip your agents, priests, mages, generals, and your Pretender God. But the true meat of the game is in spreading your dominion (aka faith) across the map. It is the source of your power, and since it can flow into enemy territoy, it can also hamper their efforts to withstand your (inevitable) attack. Be sure to build lots of temples in your own honor! Put those puny mortal mages to work researching powerful magic that can affect the whole world. Turn day to perpetual night, bring on and endless winter, kill someone anywhere in the world, dispach the flying monkeys! Last Pretender God standing wins the prize - true Godhood. Sounds simple, right? Think again. It's a deep and complex game, and can be quite the challenge at times. So join in the fun, weave your own epic tale! Smash vampires with giants, ♥♥♥♥♥ queens (yes, its a real pretender) with a midget masher, run from Cthulu! It's all in there, and waiting for you!

If you can get past the learning curve, slightly awkward controls and the graphics then you are in for a real treat, this game has so much depth and variety, literally every game you play is different because of the sheer amount of units, unique events and spells available. Very fun and reminds me of Civlization as this game will also give you 'one more turn syndrome'.

This game may look outdated, but in fact it is one of the best multiplayer games I've played. The incredible diversity and depth of this game made me sink quite a few hours into it and playing this in multiplayer is amazing. If you like playing complex turn-based diplomatic multplayer strategy games this one is definetly worth buying.

Games do not get better than this. There's a 300 page manual, so be prepared to learn the game for the first 120 hours of play.

Dominions 3 is a really deep strategic game that will challenge you to create a pretender God, lead a nation, expand, and avoid being destroyed by the other pretender Gods. There are many stats on units you create and many game concepts to learn if you have never played a Dominions game before. The graphics are lacking when compared to newer games but graphics mean little when this game has the best strategy mechanics I have seen in a while. Overall if you are willing to excuse the graphics and learn the mechanics, you will be in for an amazing strategy gem.

In my humble opinion, this is one of the best games ever made in this genra and one of my all time favorite games.

I urge all of you who enjoy games of this style to look beyond the modest graphics and give this game a good look. One of the first things you'll notice about Dominions and one of the things that really makes it shine is how rich the game world is. It really gives you the feeling that a prehistoric world filled with magic, beasts and warriors has its future decided on the battlefield by the individual warring nations (60 of them!) each with their own very vibrant back-story that gives them a very unique feel.

Each race is decidedly entirely different - A nation of frost giants, empowered by the coldest environments, a nation of demons who rise from the dead after being slain in combat etc etc.. Choose one and expand your armies AND ALSO your influence (dominion) across the land to bend the lands and their people in it to your nation's style.

OH. MY. GOD.

just a few hours into the game (maybe 2?), and... I'm totally hooked. And, that's a lot knowing I'm not the greatest fan of strategic games....

sure, graphics are... oudtated to say the least. but, who cares? this is not about nice graphics, but about thinking. a lot.

(EDITED)
ok. more than a few hours later, and even more on dom4, I can only say a few things:

- this is one of the largest games in terms of quality content I have seen in my whole life.
- it is also one of my favorite games. EVER.
- dom4 is even better. get it instead or you'll want it as soon as it's on sale.
- be warned: the learning curve is not actually steep but VERY long. about 150 hr. later (between this and dom4), and I still have sooo much to learn.
- the AI may not be a challenge for pros, but I still have to think a lot to win even on normal. Haven't tried yet on hard (and won't try in a loong time... I'm not yet ready)
- the manual should be your bedside book from now on (note: and dom4's manual is even better. and longer. yay for EVERY unit stats on it. my life is so much happier now. ) You should consider printing it. or buying it printed. but keep in mind: you have no search function on a printed book.
- tell everyone you love that you'll disappear for a long while before purchasing this. seriously, it's THAT good.
- years will come, and you will keep playing this every now and then. It's not a campaign that you go through once or twice and that's all. I totally see myself playing this for years. (especially dom4. since... oh, well, the few changes are for the better. )
- why on earth are you still reading this instead of already playing it???

PS: seriously. buy dom4 as soon as it's on sale. and on the meantime, buy dom3 now that it's on sale. You won't regret it.

If you aren't sure - find the demo, which blocks technology progress at something like level 5. This game has a very long (but not too steep) learning curve. I'm just now beginning to read the manual that goes along with it.

So what do you want from a game?

If you want a way to spend your time which is compelling: maybe sitting in front of the computer looking at the game itself and going through some grand strategy plan, or it might be reading the book that will gently unfold "every byte in the game" for you. If this sounds like fun (and it is!) then trust me, you won't regret buying this game.

Every "square" on the board begins at the start of the game as neutral (except for starting cities). As armies conquer squares, they contribute to your economy, but they are also then easily conquered unless you station vast defending armies (which you're rather use for conquering new squares). So it eventually becomes a land-grab game that I still haven't quite gotten my head around. It's quite difficult.

The depth in the game is an insane amount of content. Every time I play I'll discover some new item I didn't know could be forged. I'm sure there are people who know all this stuff, but it's quite something discovering new items or spells and the possibility of new strategies as a result.

There are also placement and timing strategies to look at.

And afflictions. I LOVE that heroes in the game can have afflictions!

Religion plays a big role adding flavor to the game and I still haven't quite grasped the historical references other than resemblences to myth. It's almost alien almost familiar - I like how they did it.

Dominions 3 also seems to be designed to play multiplayer by e-mail, so all moves by all players are concurrent (rather than taking turns) - this is one of the few turn-based games I'm aware of which uses concurrent moves - which is why battles are auto-resolved (they have to be). Even though battles are auto-resolved, as already mentioned, there are troop placement and timing strategies which will make a huge difference in battle outcomes (guaranteeing that troops arive at the front line all at the same time becomes a consideration).

[EDIT]
Cons:
The game does have a downside, which is the lack of automating some very repetitive tasks, such as what actions you always want a specific unit to use. My impression is that the game designers are really good at designing gameplay and background, but horrible at designing "workflow", which are repetitive tasks that eventually wear down the player. In it's defense, the game seems to be designed for multiplayer via e-mail - where you might make a few moves a day and games could go on for a very long time - rather than single player versus AI where you're making several moves every few minutes.

I enjoy this game but for once I would like a diplomatic system added to future dominions and maybe a kingdom based on vampires and undead since you won't base on race but this game to me gets an 8 out of 10 mainly thanks to the gameplay and the fun you can have.
