The Disciples franchise is a series of turn based fantasy strategy games, with RPG elements. While not as well known as some similar franchises, it has achieved a cult following, in particular for the Disciples 2 line released in 2002. Mattlow takes the newly released Disciples 3 through it paces and reports on the good the bad and the ugly.
To its credit, Disciples 3 does do a good job in maintaining the feel of the combat and unique units of the previous game, even in a grid that now allows full range of movement, unlike in Disciples 2. It should also be noted that Disciples 2 was never praised for having great enemy A.I., and the same is true of its successor, but the new tactical hex map highlights some of these weaknesses in more glaring fashion.
