Starts well, but then becomes boring because it's too repetitive before finishing the Empire campaign. Also, it's too hard to the point of frustration or too easy to the point of meh.

Disciples III is a hackne, dumbed down, lackluster version of its predecessors. Galleans return was the triumph of the disciples series, and this game comes nowhere close in terms of immersion, tact, or story. The graphics are better (obviously) but that really REALLY doesn't make up for the multiple shortcomings found within this title. DO NOT BUY

This game seems to have changed since release. I remember playing it when it first came out and I was really not enjoying it, but apparently it has gotten some updates since then to smooth things out. I really really am liking it now. If you play it, you WILL have a bit of a learning curve because the UI isn't extremely obvious on how to do some things, but if you read a little on the online wiki about the game it will tell you how to do everything. It's just a matter of getting accustomed to the way it works. Other than that It is well worth a try if you can find it for a price you feel is good. It's great that this game had its early issues resolved because now it is on par with disciples 2, save for only having 3 races (missing undead which was my fave)

The art and musical score in this game were great! The gameplay however was slow, sluggish and very reapeatitive. If the developers didn't include a auto resolve function in the game it would be unplayable. Buy it if its cheap.

I wanted to like this game. I really did. But I just couldn't. The tutorial its a joke, you'll just have to learn almost everything by clicking and trying things. If that's not enough, the game by itself sucks. The battle system suck hard, and there's not much of a choice to make in-battle, its simply run and beat, pretty obviously. The XP leveling its crappy (XP divided among the group, even to those caracters that did not participate a little bit with the fight), and you gain almost no xp after killing enemys much, much higher leveled than you.
The graphics its OK... and thats about it. Congrats to the team that did that. But to those ppl responsible for the gameplay... dead just wouldn't be enough.
The worst part its that I boughted also the sequel - ressurection, and I think I just dont have the guts to try... at least, I didn't get reincarnation like I wished... and (tks to God) failed to trade.
Botton of line, if you're thinking to buy this game, forget that and go do something more fun, like get shoted in the knee, or rapped.
Just write this down to avoid more ppl, like myself, get iluded by this game.

If you have a ton of time to burn and you want a strategic RPG in the vein of Might n Magic and you've already played Might n Magic and King's Quest and literally everything else in this genre, this would be a good way to spend your time. otherwise, play a better game.
it has: nice graphics. a setting I could actually probably care about, maybe.
it does not have: polish, sophistication, an appropriate sense of strategy other than grinding levels, good voice acting, good music, or anything else that might make this an diamond in the rough.

Don't waste money or time on this title. Heroes of Might and Magic series is much better. I would recommend Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes over all of them.

Disciples was a very special game for me because of the art present in the game.
Gloomy style of the game has something special that makes me go back to him every once in a while.Disciple 3 carries on this recipe.Recomand!

Tried this game out because I was a fan of the might and magic series. I was sorely disappointed. Visually, its a beautiful game, but the gameplay is bland, time-consuming, and repetitive.

Have you ever bought something on pure impulse? I did. It was horrible. It taught me never to do it again. That's what Disciples 3 is to me. I just personally don't like turn-based gameplay. It's boring and frustrating. Sure, the game itself is pretty, but that's all it really has going for itself. It's very easy to get distracted from it. Hell, even talking about it is boring me. But you know what isn't boring? Waffles. Waffles are so good. They're definitely worth the money. Pop them in the toaster for about 2 or 3 minutes, get your maple syrup, and you're good to go. But of course, the best maple syrup is from Canada. Canada is such a great place. I really want to go there to visit my girlfriend because that's where she lives, sadly, but we Skype every day and it's great. Speaking of which, Skype is a great computer program that allows you to contact your friends and video chat long distance. It's pretty bad on mobile devices, but on PC it works great. Where was I again? Oh right, Disciples. Eh, I wouldn't recommend it personally. But if you like turn-based gameplay, go ahead.

I've been playing Disciples II for a long time before I found some good offer on the following chapter: I've played Renaissance, Reincarnation and Resurrection.

Although Reincarnation was the one I enjoyed the most (but also the first I played), I have to admit I found Renaissance to be quite easier. And that appears quite strange and opposite compared to all the reviews I read on Steam.

The big flaws of the game, in my opinion, are three:
1. the fact you can't decide whether to attack or retire from a battle when you come across an enemy;
2. you can't use shortcuts (at least, I'm not able to use them on Renaissance while I used them all the time on Reincarnation);
3. battles can be a bit confusing if you don't pay attention when deciding every move: for example, if you click on an hex too far from your player he will go there on the next turn, but you can't set him on defensive status.
Moreover, I didn't like the fact that range attacks can hit everywhere on the map, even on most distan hexes. I way prefer Reincarnation battle mode on this sight.

Also, it's never clear which charachter got a level up, there's no sign to notify your hero can learn new abilities and so on.

All in all, I'd surely suggest Disciples III - Renaissance to anyone fond of the Disciples trilogy, but if you want a more challenging, refined and precise game experience then you should definitely go for Reincarnation.
