Isles of Terra is the third game in the Might and Magic series.
Isles of Terra is the third game in the Might and Magic series. It was released initially for MS-DOS in 1991, then ported to Amiga in 1992. Several other versions were published later, including Macintosh, Sega CD, and SNES.
This was the last M&M to appear on so many platforms, in fact starting from the 4th game (Clouds of Xeen), the series became a PC exclusive.
The game was directed by Jon Van Caneghem, the original creator and designer of the Might and Magic titles, but this time the development team was much bigger. Like its predecessors, this role-playing game is based on a pseudo-3D first-person view. The setting is fantasy, with all the classic races and classes that you would expect (but Isles of Terra adds Druids and Rangers, which were previously not available).
Unlike other RPGs such as Eye of the Beholder or Ishar: Legend of the Fortress, combat is turn-based. There are substantial improvements compared to the predecessors, for example, the auto-mapping, or the book of spells, or the small portraits of the party members, showing their conditions. Enemies can also be seen from distance, which makes ranged weapons much more useful, and allows players to avoid dangerous encounters. The graphics are much better compared to the previous games, though still not exceptional.
Overall, Might and Magic III is a great game and a solid classic RPG. If you like role-playing games not entirely based on dungeons, this is a title you have to try.

Excuse me. But after waiting for about three minutes I thought the game didn't work, now I tried as you suggested and after about 5 minutes it started working ... Thank you very much.
@Maurizio, whdload games are fully tested and continuously updated by the WHD community. They are the only ones guaranteed to be working (unlike DOS or Windows games). Might and Magic 3 (Amiga) doesn't crash. If you see a screen flickering it's due to the disk emulation, it's normal. Just wait and it will work.
Please pay more attention ... Maybe you should try the games on more computers, before declaring them "working" ... This Might and Magic3 is an example! It makes you choose a name ... and then it crashes!
Advanced game in every when it hit the shelves. One of the best RPG's ever. If there were no sci-fi elements, the score would hit the roof.
