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.

One of the best strategy games out there! I immediately fell in love with the carefully wrote and deep nation and unit descriptions, medieval music and minimalist graphics. Quite contrary, the game's graphics make the game so fun as it gives your imagination some blank space, thus making it personal (for me at least) and emotional. That is what lacks from today's games.

Basically an accessible strategy game with moderate learning curve and high complexity. Difficult to master but easy to pick up. At first could be a bit frightening because of the somewhat poor UI but if you're open minded, you have some imagination and dare to dive in an artistically created world, you'll do just fine and get an unforgettable experience.

It's awesome!

Hundreds of different units. Dozens of Nations to play.
A mind boggling amount of spells to cast.
Equip your summoned Angels, Deamons or other monsters with different items you have forged.
Sacrifice slaves to perform the most vile of magics: Blood magic.
Etc. etc.....

And all these options do not even include the hundreds of mods that have been made by the community.

If you like GRAND strategy games you should definitely check this out.
