Might and Magic III: Isles of Terra is a turn-based 3D fantasy role-playing video game developed and published by New World Computing for DOS in 1991, and then for several other platforms.

My brother borrowed this game from a friend shortly after it was released and I played it on my family's 386SX Packard Bell.


I own the game for DOS in a Might & Magic collection.



  • The graphics are truly amazing for a 1991 PC game.
  • The combat system is simple enough to not be an obstacle, but complex enough to handle different tactics.
  • The prefix/suffix system for items was a great way of creating nearly countless variations of items.


  • The music and sound is pretty bland.
  • The dungeon traps are pretty obnoxious. Even though they're clearly visible, they're often unavoidable and only serve to slowly weaken your party.


  • The original release had a pretty bad game-breaking bug that made it nearly impossible to win.
