I just really can't understand how is possible that in disciples 2 was multiplayer and here isn't ! I bought this game with my friend becouse we wanted to play together. But reality was different. So if you like singleplayer game, I can recommended this for you. This game is similar to Disciples 2 and graphic isn't bad, but like i said, only hot seat support is not enough.

I played through all 3 stories, but I got the worst bug ever on a computer game. After I did everything to finish the last level, there was supposed to be a portal to enter to fight the final boss. This portal did not appear, so the game just left me stuck on the map with nothing that could be done to finish the game. I got this game in a bundle deal so it we very cheap, but it was a waste of time to play. You play the same battle on the same battle map over and over as you walk down a 1 way path that has encounters closer together than the old RPGs and you can see the enemy on the map, but you have to fight almost every one since the path is too small to walk past them. All they did was reskin the battle map and enemies and units on your team and they have you relevel your units each time you get to a new level even though it is super easy because they put in buildings you can click to buff your party and spells that basically let you cheat in game. When you get to a certain point, you can buy unlimited stat raising items and make an invincible character. I'm not sure if this was a glitch since on some levels the stat potions were limited, but others they were unlimited. I also had a glitch on a few levels where the game would freeze if I ended my turn. I could only play by using editting my movement points so I could complete the level without ending the turn that would freeze the game. I liked the music and the artwork. The story could have been good if it was fleshed out more and had longer cut scenes. The game plays just like King's Bounty or HOMM, but you have single units instead of the moronic stacks that the other games have, so I had hoped this would be the first tactical game on the PC that is similar to the console games like FFT, Fire Emblem, or Shining Force. All of those game had single units that you developed, maps to fight on that changed shape between levels instead of just randomly laying some rocks and bonuses on squares, and could be played through without a game breaking bug. Maybe I should give up on ever having a game like that on the PC. I just wish I had my time back.

Do not buy this game on Steam. If you get this game in a bundle, save yourself a disapointement, and just never play the game. Maybe have Steam hide it or file it to your junk games group.

if you're going to make a blatant clone of an existing game format (Heroes of Might And Magic) then you might as well pull out all the stops and make a better game. And that's what they've done here. A grown-up clone, without the My Little Pony and Tinkerbell stuff. They've focused on the good bits -- movong your player piece across the board, entering into staged battles with enemies you encounter -- and dumped the junk -- all those dancing elves and glittery stuff. The learning curve it steep at first as you have to work out the magic system -- different systems for on the board and in staged battles -- but once you know what you're doing it flows really nicely. Can get a little repetitive, but then what game doesn't? Lovely graphics, ambient music, altogether an absorbing game.

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.

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

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.

Challenging strategy squad based game, similiar to kings bounty series. Faction based campaigns very long and addictive.
The good= Single units, with multiple skills, and different type and actions.
Hex grid turn based combat gives you multiple angles for strategy.
Huge skill tree gives you options on how you want to build your main hero.
Units level up, can reclass, change into more advanced units.
Good looking graphics on combat and world map.
The Bad= Sometimes momentarily frezzes during spell casting and capturing of different relics.
Poor hotseat / multiplayer options.
Cannot undo moving in combat if clicked accidentaly.
Cannot use thiefs right away like disiple 2, must use him as hero and skill tree, which takes forever.

Great graphics arts wasted on the dumbest game play I have ever seen. There is no balance. Units are either too strong or too weak. Only archmage hero is useful, all the others are junks. The upgrades are stupid. The game paly was designed by some 13 years old. There are bugs so you can even see the unit's stats...

It's an interesting game but don't expect a lot of vereity... Everything you do on the first map you will do again and again though each campagin. And that is ok, but it doesn't make for the most riviting game if you don't try somthing different with your units each map. While to two other factions do have different units and spells it only changes the wrapping not the mechanics. All that being said however it is a very detailed, mature, and polished game that I did like playing, though I had to play it in spurts.
While it is not one of my favoite games I did enjoy it.

3 / 5 stars

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.
