  1. For those of you new to the series Warlords Battlecry III has a lot to offer that you won’t find in any other RTS title, and if you like RTS games, there’s a lot to like here. A traditional RPG fan will find lots to love too with the hero driven game play.
  2. 86
    Its unique Hero system is fantastic and the gameplay is very addictive.
  3. Notwithstanding that we had to penalize the game for the disappointing graphics, the development team did an excellent job on creating a game that you can literally play for the next 2 years and never play the same character twice!
  4. 80
    If you're a longtime Battlecry player hoping for a revolutionary improvement, Warlords Battlecry 3 will be a disappointment. But if it's high-quality RTS gameplay you're looking for, it's here in spades.
  5. 80
    The depth of races and units in Warlords Battlecry 3 is enough to fill three other lesser RTS games.
  6. With all the different combinations to choose from it is almost certain that no two games would be alike. Some missions are also replayable to let you gain XP quicker to level up your character that much quicker for those harder tasks.
  7. The range of maps is impressive, though this game is likely to appeal most to Lord of the Rings-loving mythologists.
  8. There are some cool things to do, like level-up and outfit you hero with items, , which I find to be the most endearing part of the series. [Aug 2004, p.106]
  9. It cannot quite compete with the likes of SpellForce: The Order of Dawn, but as a reasonably enjoyable title to fill the void of gaming insomnia, it does merit mild recommendation.
  10. 75
    As a play-alone game, it's well worth the money, but without even moderately acceptable multiplayer support it's going to have an uphill fight to find a larger audience -- and that's a shame because it deserves better.
  11. AI and pathfinding issues along with dated graphics prevent Warlords Battlecry III from being a top-tier strategy game. If you can put up with these shortcomings, then you’ll find a lot to like with the game.

    THE best RTS EVER created, contrary to the other players i belive that the graphics are good and that the main part of an RTS is strategy and THE best RTS EVER created, contrary to the other players i belive that the graphics are good and that the main part of an RTS is strategy and gameplay, The main RPG elements in any game are stoyline and depth. All of these rank the best ive ever seen and ive played RTS and TBS games for a sizable fraction of my time for years now, this game is by far the best. Full Review »
