After playing previous games in the series, and finishing all the Heroes games but still wanting a fix of this sort of game, I ended up getting this on a bundle sale.
Started disappointing due to the clunky dialog and lacklustre gameplay, but I continued on if only to keep me visually stimulated whilst listening to audiobooks (the background musics alright, but not for over 50 hours of play).
Midway the bugs started kicking in, including (but not limited to) units stacking inside each other, inventory screens and city screens remaining visible on the overworld, level ups not registering... but usually restarting the game would fix these and I figured I'd got halfway through so may as well finish.
Then I reached the elf campaign. I pride myself on not resorting to easy modes as a general rule, but this game makes it nigh-on impossible to get past the first couple of enemies on any higher difficulty. After that point I was disappointed to find I couldn't raise the difficulty, meaning the rest of the game I was auto-battling every fight including bosses with little to no casualties. The only input I had as a player was clicking from fight to fight, following a relatively linear path until completing the map. But still, near the end of the game... I may as well see how the (bland and generic) story plays out.
Final map. I'm tired of this game now and just want it to be finished. I level up my party to their highest ranks but then I ignore all treasure in favour of getting to the end. I reach the final gate, get a cutscene preparing for the final boss, and...? That's it. A script error causes a new objective to come up to destroy the city you just destroyed. Some say they fixed it by downloading a revised script, but no luck for me. 161 hours of gameplay (half of which was actual playing as I'm afk a lot), only to reach a brick wall at the very end.
Nevertheless I'll be playing the expansion, as I paid for it as part of the bundle, but seriously- don't bother starting the same journey as me.

Disciples III, is my first introduction to the series, so I have no basis for comparison with previous Disciples games. Disciples III is a turn-based strategy game, utilizing a combination of point and click movement when out of combat, and a turn-based game grid whenever combat is initatied, each featuring varied terrain. You can play as one of three races; The Elven Alliance, The Legion of the Damned, and The Empire. It seems like an interesting game. The visuals are not bad, and there appears to be a backstory, for those interested in an all around experience. It isn't a bad game by any means, but probably not one I would go out of my way to play. It feels generic to me, but that could be because I've seen dozens of other games all with a similar premise, and varying degrees of similarity in graphics, movement, and style. Disciples III is well done and deserved a thumbs up, but make sure before you buy it, that it is the kind of game you are going to enjoy.

i would recommend this game to a friend or someone who likes the turn-based Strategy type games but there are a few problems i think with the game:

- Mountain Clans and the Undead are not a playable race.
- early in missions/scenarios enemies scale much higher then what you do but when you level up once your just over powered

I am not sure what they did to the thief either whether they changed him so he can't do actions e.g.(infiltrate spy, poison party, duel leaders or a party, (or if you had chosen the guild master leader then you got extra actions like assassinate random unit in a party and steal gold or a spell from the enemy Base).

the main pro of this game for me is:
- the way battles are taken is more stratical then Disciples II:
- part of map where you can do 2X magic, ranged or melee damage.
- animations are much better as well.

Personally on my opinion i say that Disciples II: galleen's return was much better in fact prob the best of the series if you bought this one over Disciples II i would call you crazy unless you haven't played number 2 yet

This game makes me sad. I loved Disciples II, and I really wanted to like the third version, but the longer I played the game the more I kept asking myself "why?" The story is drivel. You have to fully watch the 20 second animation for every spell you cast. The user interface is a completely overwraught, tangled mess. Worse there's no gameplay to speak of. See, all the difficulty is frontloaded. The first ~20 turns are just unreasonably hard, even to a veteran of the series on normal difficulty. Worse, after you level up basically once, you are just coasting on easy mode with an unstoppable army. Why bother playing?
