Summary: Got disc not inserted error. Downloaded patch from Kalypso and error persisted. Was told no new patches were coming out so I returned it. Might have been good, never got to play it. I heard a lot of the north American versions of this game shipped with this issue. As a positive the copyright protection is so excellent on this game even its owners aren't allowed to play it :) Thankfully my money was returned, thanks Amazon!!!
Summary: so i got it then got nothing but errors saying original disc not found. a quick turned up that hey you need a new disc to play. Brand new game that wont work because manufacturing has not quality control? please dont bother buying this game since its just a crap shot on if it will work or not. so out of the 2 discs this came with one worked, the other didnt.
different style of gameplay than previous versions
14 April 2014
Summary: The style of gameplay in this version now involves movement across a hexboard, unlike previous disciples games so that it now resembles games such as "Age of Wonders" or "Heroes of might and magic". There are 2 games included in this gold version. The first game feels a bit unfinished. It's almost as if the game was prematurely put out for some reason. The second game was done much better.
Summary: If you played DIII Renaissance and don't want more of the same, spend your money somewhere else. I had forgotten what DIII Ren was until I purchased Resurrection and I was mad at first because I thought I had just bought a game I already had.
Do Games REALLY Have to Be This Difficult To Launch?
Kevin C Montanaro, Amazon
18 October 2013
Summary: Bought the game, installed both discs. The original game, when attempting to launch, informs me the original disc is not loaded. I reboot and try again (with the disc in the drive, of course, I wouldn't think I would need to point that out. 'merica.), same thing. I find a patch (because all games are useless on the first day of being sold to the general public, you have to wait for a patch), patch doesn't fix it.
Summary: I was surprised when I got this game that there were still execution issues going on for a 'gold' release. There are still patches out there that needed to be done on this game. I failed to see why all the groups in this story line could not have been included to begin with. It is difficult to negotiate the world map. I had a real hard time figuring out where my parties could walk to and couldn't. The world map was overly busy with props that it was overly crowded.
Summary: I've been playing the Disciples game since it first came out but had gotten so busy, I did not realize III was out. This double pack has been amazing! The graphics are so, so, so, so much better than before and the new characters are fabulous! Even though it's a bit slower than most games, it's perfect for me!
