A beautiful dark fantasy RPG
Lands of Lore 3 continues the saga of the series, and, most notably it introduces true 3D environments in the mix, while it still makes good use of the classic sprites (but not often) for some of the enemies. It's a third person, fully 3D game, at times even more of an action blend than a role player, but, don't worry, you do have to grow your protagonist, and you are dependent on the loot and the XP that you need to generate to gain levels. It's a story in the same vein as the other games in the series, but it's more notable for taking a lesser importance in the overall game. Nope, Lands of Lore 3 does not really take story as seriously, but it's a vast game; loads of levels, loads of weapons, loads of spells and loads of treasure to hoard! It's a blend that veers towards the action, but it does so in a very nice, well organized manner, what is sure to keep anyone and everyone interested, especially when it comes to the action. Other RPG elements that are fully featured are yet again the ones that take their cues from the action portion. Most of the guilds are all about action, the clerics, the fighter, the thieves guild and so on; So, if you want action, Lands of Lore 3 will deliver by the bucketful, dressed well in RPG clothes.
