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.

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.

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.

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.

OK, let's say "recommended" because the dark fantasy universe is really nice and because that makes a good-looking tactical RPG catchy enough to stay stucked on it a few hours.

For the rest, I would say that this game is far too easy if you are patient enough to do some levelling (to be started again at EACH of the game level from the beginning) thus making it awfully repeatitive, with too few tactical possibilities. At the end, I was just leaving the computer resolving automatically the fights... well, that's not really what you expect from a game.

So recommended for a short time and as a starter if you cannot bear teddy-bears high-fantasy worlds, but unfortunately quite fast boring.
