The Old God has left the world and the pretenders are awakening and coming out from hiding. You start the game by designing one of the pretender gods that will compete for true ascension to godhood. The type of god can range from a magically powerful arch mage to an ancient kraken or a mystic monolith that people pray to. Your pretender controls one of over sixty different nations and with the help of that nation he will spread his word and battle the other pretenders. Dominions 3 is a turn based strategy game. You can play single- or multiplayer (1 - 23 players) with simultaneous turns. There are more than 1500 different units, 600 spells and 300 magic items in the game. The game also features a medieval musical score by Erik Ask Uppmark and Anna Rynefors, both awarded the title of Musicians of the Realm by the Swedish Zornmärkeskommiten. Dominions 3 is a highly detailed game and a 300 page pdf manual is included in the download.

It's Dominions 3. There's nothing quite like it when it comes to depth or complexity, graphics be damned. Though the sound could use a bit of an overhaul. Music itself is great.

Dominions 3 is a game unlike many others. It combines a huge freedom (a.k.a. 4X) with lovely retro graphics identical to games like Panzer General. The wide selections of nations, units, monsters, gods and spells is also something you don't see in other games. The Dominions series (and Illwinter Game Design) will be remembered for a very long time.

This game is not for everybody - but those it is for will love it.

No nice graphics, very oldschool interface and none of your none-gamer and even a lot of your gamer friends will not understand it.

What makes this game so extraordinary is it's complexity - if you are into wargames/strategy games you will never have seen anything like it.

But beware: Playing it single player is (in my opinion) futile - you have to play it against other human beings and this consumes time...

And let me stress this: The stratigic choices you will face in this round based game will exceed your intellect - no matter how smart you thought your were... :D

Dominions 3 is easily the deepest strategy game that I've ever seen. This statement is almost a no-brainer considering the sheer volume of options and choices. There are dozens of nations to play that are all different. There are THOUSANDS of different types of troops.

Every time I play, I encounter something I've never seen before. How many games are there where you can say that?!
