IGN has finally clocked in with their review of .dat's Disciples III: Renaissance, in which they hand the turn-based strategy/RPG hybrid an overall score of 6.0/10. The closing paragraph:
Disciples III: Renaissance is a pretty, but relatively shallow experience. Exploring the world is fine, but the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. The combat system can turn into a repetitive ordeal, though it is entertaining at first. It also seems like Renaissance is long for the sake of being long, not because there's an interesting story to tell. If you really enjoy strategy RPGs, particularly the Disciples series, you might enjoy Disciples III. There's a bunch of content here to play, but you should really try the demo first to see if it will keep your attention.
