5.0 out of 5 stars We need more games like this one August 3, 2002
By A Customer
I could say a lot of good things about this great game, but, to keep this short, I'd better just hit the main points. This is the best game I've ever played. Unfortunately, there is nothing else like it. I've played it all the way through 7 times, joining all 4 guilds (that's the way to go) and doing all 12 guild quests, which are in addition to your main goals of restoring your soul and saving your world. There are too many specific things about it to praise here, so let me just say that, if you're looking for a good, first-person, single-player, single-character, sword-and-sorcery RPG, snatch up a copy of this game before there are no more to be had.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Review? July 24, 2002
By Alec
The game ,Lands of Lore III, had good ideas but westwood, the company that made the game, screwed up the game in several ways.
Lets start with the graphics: ironically the graphics were much worse than in part two, Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny (my personal favorite of the three). In part three, the game appears as if its been swallowed by a giant dust cloud. Everything appears to be hazy. When you see people especially, it looks as if the game was made 15 years ago rather than four.
One EXTREMELY ANNOYING part of the game is CD changing. When you get the game it comes with four CD's that you must constantly change. For example: there is a separate CD for the sewers, the castle, each of the two parts of the city/village/town, the forest, each of the four portals and the list just keeps going. In the game, you travel through these areas fluently and many, many times over. So if you are in the sewers and your need to get to the portal, you leave the sewers (change CD), go through the city/town/villige to the other side (change CD), go to the forest (change CD), go to the portal (change CD) and then when you're done you come back through the portal and it all happens again.
In addition to all that, the game is very long. If you join all the guilds or groups (Clerics, Wizards, Warriors, or Thieves) you must go back to all the worlds twice and each world takes about an hour to an hour and a half to pass in addition to other long and annoying tasks you must preform.
Finally, on the good side, the weapons in the game are plentyful and are various. In addiotion you get a huge inventory to put your items (you can stack up to 20 of the same items in the same place if they are replicas of each other). The guilds are also fun to explore in the way that they all provide something fun and interesting to explore and enjoy.
Overall the game was annoying to play, but fun to explore the items and guilds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying, and no re-play value March 15, 2004
Like many players, I found the disk changing aspect quite annoying. Also, the graphics, for requiring as much hardware as they do, were rather poor. The LoL:GoD graphics were better, and that's sad, since it came out years earlier, and they were worse than the ones in the first game! Also, I don't think the game setup is all that fun; the guild idea would be cooler if you couldn't join every one. Like, if you had to give something up to play the game through, thereby creating re-play value. As it stands, LoL3 should have gone through more review sessions before being published. Westwood, have you ever heard of beta testers?

My son and I have been playing LOL2 and LOL 3 since they came out in 1995 and 1999. Best games ever. Dune and Dune 2000 also as good.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a bit old but its a fun game. people that are old school gamers will love this RPG. The only bad thing is that its picky about what computers it will play on. New computers have been known to fight with it.
