    There's some truth to the claim that disciples 3 has evolved more then it's competitor heroes of might and magic, this certainly looks amazing and plays really well. Where it's brought low though is the absolutely pathetic voice acting and most of the units sounds, in fact the sound design in general is severely lacking, I know sound design seems a poor thing to pick at when reviewing aThere's some truth to the claim that disciples 3 has evolved more then it's competitor heroes of might and magic, this certainly looks amazing and plays really well. Where it's brought low though is the absolutely pathetic voice acting and most of the units sounds, in fact the sound design in general is severely lacking, I know sound design seems a poor thing to pick at when reviewing a game but here it really is noticeable you have these amazing Gothic characters and environments brought to "life" by some of the worst voice acting I've ever endured if your content to let that slide however you'll find a great turn based strategy here...you might just want to bring your own music.

    The Good: The Game is a classic turn based strategy game with an interesting unit progression system. The game also happens to be a great time sync, and is enjoyable to play once you get into it. ================================================================================ The Bad: The game tries to be epic, and fails at being epic pretty badly due to the horrible voice acting.

The game also happens to be a great time sync, and is enjoyable to play once you get into it. ================================================================================ The Bad: The game tries to be epic, and fails at being epic pretty badly due to the horrible voice acting. There's really just no excuse for the voice acting to have turned out this badly. Werewolves sound like Fred Fredburger, the heroes sound goofy, and the narrator reads his script with such an obvious lack of professionalism that players may want to turn the sound off and simply read it themselves. The cut scenes are unimmersive and unenjoyably as anything other than comedy because of the horrendous and hilarious voice acting. There are also a few bugs, and units and objects are sometimes visually poorly represented on the campaign map so it may be hard to see what you're interacting with until you get used to it. ================================================================================
    Once you get past the game's flaws though, you'll find that underneath the ridiculously horrible voice acting and somewhat buggy gameplay is an enjoyable turn based strategy game that you can easily play for days

    Standalone add-on cannot cover that Disciples are no match to reborn Might and Magic series. If you are a devoted fan you will probably appreciate longer playtime and the few improvements. [Christmas 2011]

    There are a few glimmers of brilliance. [Jan 2012, p.141]

    Overall, Disciples III: Resurrection is an expansion that features plenty of turn-based gaming hours, but these come bundled with technical issues and a couple of design choices that get more and more annoying as you progress through the campaign.
