    Dungeons 3 proves that you do not need earth shattering changes to make a great sequel. The game very much feels like a loving update to its predecessor and the small splashes do more than enough to freshen things up. Easily the most polished and refined Dungeons game to date and Evily as good as the game that started the genre 20 years ago.

    Dungeons III is a game with a double soul: the first is the dungeon management like Dungeon Keeper, the other one is a real time strategy combat oriented. The mix works great and the humor that permeates the whole production makes every moment played fun.

    Dungeons 3 is a solid Dungeon manager that will keep you entertained for many hours between the fun gameplay, loving the attention to the details and endless puns and jeers of Thalya and the Narrator towards each other and famous franchises. If you are tired of the paladins and people who play them, this is the game for you.

    Dungeons 3 drowns in terribly extensive gags and exhausting talk - of course, humor is always a question of taste, but where I found dungeons 2 to a certain extent still quite funny, meets dungeons 3 my nerve any more. Less comedy, more gameplay please.

    Dungeons III is a good hybrid of real-time strategy and dungeon management. The quests are fun, the simple mechanics are tight, and the humor is nice, even if it can be grating at times. Its lack of difficulty will turn off anyone looking for a challenge, and the lack of a community means that those who like playing with others will find nothing here. The whole experience is worth it if you like what's on display here.

    Overall, Dungeons 3 was a mixed bag for me, mostly because I found the campaign to be sort of a chore. It took me 30 hours to finish its 20 missions, and while the humor was great, the lack of challenge took away any sense of tension or excitement, and I knew at the start of every mission that I was going to win after about 90 minutes. I was also sort of surprised that the focus of the game is way more on the surface (where everything interesting happens) rather than the dungeons (which all look about the same), when it should have been the opposite. So while Dungeons 3 isn’t a terrible game or anything, it’s certainly a title where I’d recommend that you wait for a sale before purchasing it.

    Dungeons 3 lets us with a frown. The management part is very good with lot of possibilities but on the other hand, RTS part is too classic. It's too redundant to be a fully enjoyable experience.

It's theI have loads of backlogs but didn't really fee like playing any. Then I discovered Dungeons 3 and it's basically hitting the spot. It's the kind of strategy game that keeps me VERY interested and engaged.

    It's mainly RTS, but it's got pretty decent tower defense element going with it. Every stage introduces a new mechanic and god I love the narratives. They really did a good job with this game.

    This game is HIGHLY recommended for all strategy game addicts such as myself.

TheI missed out on ever playing Dungeon Keeper, but have to say this game makes up for it. Campaign, Graphics, Gameplay, all are great. The amount of complexity and depth to the dungeon management is good, and the combat above ground is pleasant. I can happily say this is the best Dungeon sim game available. Narrator and story is funny too. Buy it! Expand

    The game has nice mechanics and strategic options, building your dungeon is extremely satisfying, to succeed ins missions is necessary a good balance between the troops you send to attack and the traps/soldiers you left for defense.

    The level design is also good with different challenges on each level which prevents the game from getting bored in the long run.

    Finally, the best part of the game is its humor, the jokes, the protagonist, the antagonist, the narrator, everything is perfect in this aspect and I laughed a lot playing it.

    I missed Dungeon Keeper so I bought this game. The game is better than I expected. It was divided into two components. First is theI missed Dungeon Keeper so I bought this game. The game is better than I expected. It was divided into two components. First is the underground, same as dungeon keeper but more organized. Second is on the land, which is like normal RTS. You deploy your units from your dungeon base and attack hero land. I didn't finish the game though because it got repeptitive overtime. Still, I felt like having two components have pros and cons. It is not like clear advantage. I would prefer only dungeon component but more of a threat in defending. In this game, traps are too powerful and the town portal spell is really cheating. Some units can be ignored completely. For exp I never tortured any heroes because I see no point. With Orc Naga and Imp are enough to win. There is no counter units anyway. Narrator are annoying sometimes. In addition, the first mission is very slow start. They should just cutscene into dungeon mode right off the bat (I almost dropped the game). Campaigns are creative though. Every mission devs did good job trying to make them difference.

    Overall, the game was fun for a while but still lack of depth in strategy.

    Just for the record: I have NOT played any other entry in the franchise or the Dungeon Keeper that a lot of people here mentioned.

    The biggest flaw of this game is that it tries to dictates how you should play and in what rhythm.
    There are 2 moments in this game: building/defending your dungeon and exploring/battling through the wolrd above you. The second one, feels clumsy and rather boring after a few encounters. The commands are, overall, not responsive. For more than once, I ordered my units to move and they stoped along the way to attack barricades. Sometimes, they would even give priority to it as oposed to attacking enemies that were killing them. It's just not fun. You only go to the surface because it's demanded of you.

    There are a lot of good ideas and aspects about the game, but, unfortunately, the thing the creator of this game are most proud of is the most annoying one. I would constatly mute the game because the narration is simply awfull, childish and irritating at times (like how the Elf screams when you toss her somewhere or when she dies. I sincerely "alt+f4" the game once because of her "Noooo" scream).

    The best aspect of the game is the dungeon building. It feels really good building it up, setting the rooms as you desire and such. The work units function in a very satisfying way, but that's about it.

    To sum it up: fun building mechanics, clumsy battle controls and, OMFG, I have no intention of being mean to the studio who developed this, but the narrative brutally KILLS the game.

    During my first 20 minutos of playing, I thought this was going to be a 8/10 game. But going higher than 5 would be an error.
