Summary: This game is TERRIBLE. How the hell they could ruin such great idea of Disciples 2 all we wanted is same Disciples 2 with new graphics, new plot and new campains, and what did we get Very buggy and weak HoMM-style clone with stupid plot and awful voicing.
Summary: In comparison to the other Disciples games this one has for sure better graphics but it has sacrificed its dark climate and story. The fighting system is in my opinion the best one in turn-based strategies. However what holds it back is also the lack of mas to be used in both single and multiplayer, other games in this franchise had the abundance of them. There is also a serious flaw with the background being beautiful but not accessible.
Summary: Before i bought Disciples 3, i never in my wildest dreams would have thought it would be bad enough to make me want to uninstall it so i could re-install Disciples 2. Unfortunately, that`s EXACTLY how bad this unoriginal borefest was. Basically, everything that gave D2 any fun and replay value was ripped out in D3 for the sake of making the environment ''prettier'' and so the level designer wouldn`t have to work as hard. You can no longer import your hero.
Summary: This game is insultingly incomplete. Scenarios are buggy and the AI gets downright abusive, doing things like ambushing your party from just offscreen (on the very first level, no less!). Even if the many bugs and generally sloppy coding were fixed (which they won't be, as support has been officially discontinued as of this writing), there's not much here to like. The storyline and levels are formulaic, as other reviewers have pointed out.
Summary: Not only they changed the simple but great battle system of Disciples II to a bad mix of Kings Bounty and Heroes of Might and Magic, but also the game looks bad, its boring and one cannot find any motivation to play it. Big disappointment.
Summary: The game had/has real possibilities. It's just that I fear that we'll never see it. Even it's bugs has bugs. Kalypso apparently pays no attention to its own forums. Patches have been long overdue.
Summary: Goodness. 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).
Summary: Boring. Nice graphics, interesting balancing, but combat requires nothing apart from an initial tactical composition of your army. And is then repeated way too often per mission - combat is slow-paced and incredibly boring. If you want a HoMM-clone that is unique and challenging and refreshing, you would do much better to look at the King's Bounty installments where combat is fresh and fun. Facit: Boring combat, poor storywriting, stay away.
Summary: I didn't knew Disciples and decided for a change to try a new RPG, and bought Disciples 3. First bad news I read the inside descriptions of the box, turn by turn battles... I hope it won't be boring... Then I install it and after a very long wait, and a stunning 3D view of some falls as a menu... here comes a completely dull and stupid turn by turn adventure... have you tried counting your step during a whole day?
