Oct 20, 2010Goodness. What a panning. There appears to be a great deal of comparison to HOMM 5, which, if you adore cartoon-like WOW-stylised graphics, may be more your taste. Scrap that - if you like that visual style, play 'Kings Bounty'. Disciples 3 is a different animal - often gritty and beautiful, if busy, and takes risks by amending some gameplay elements (as opposed to HOMM 5 which retracts features and stagnates the formula). The battles are no more slow-paced than in HOMM or KB. It's recommended to switch the movement speeds up and turn off 'cinematic camera', which is twitchy. Indeed, there are translation issues and terrible dubbing, and the tutorials are confused. Slap-dash. However I doubt very much that the story was the reason we all played HOMM, or that many will care about tutorial implementation, and instead just jump into the main campaign. We play TBS's because of their 'just-one-more-turn' addictive nature of game-play, which still remains here. To be clear - I award 10 as an effort in re-balancing. I would give 7 now and 9 when the Editor and the Dwarf & Undead races are released. HOMM can't touch the visual flair of Disciples. I have encountered no technical issues with this game.… Full Review »
Sep 9, 2010The graphics and their artwork is nice but the storyline are messy a bit like repetitive...and very length-ly mission.....when i play for a long time....i was got bored and stops playing it.
The gameplay looks ok but the hero that you recruited like example when i use "legend of the damned"

Oh, one more thing is too much bugs......
I don`t know about it but when i played… Full Review »
KevinS.Jul 17, 2010Take the building tree from Disciples 2, mix in the combat system from Heroes of Might and Magic 4, and if you were very unlucky you might come up with something as bad as Disciples 3. Units are unbalanced, the AI is horrid, and the campaign is well-nigh unplayable because of overpowered elven armies wandering the first map. To top it all off, they couldn't even get the names of units or the order of help topics correct in the tutorial. Given a few months and some heavy patching, Disciples 3 just might be worth playing. But I doubt it will ever be worth the $40 it started out at.… Full Review »
