In short... Myth III: The Wolf Age is a great game in its own right, but those who fell in love with and gave their all to the first two titles are best to stick with them. Myth III is a great game, but it's not a Bungie game... and you can tell.
About This Particular Macintosh (Jul, 2003)
Myth III smokes Myth II in terms of graphics performance and speed, and it is a pleasure to play for that reason. The ability to zoom way in and enjoy exquisite detail, or zoom way out and move around briskly while maintaining shadows, reflections, and extensively rendered landscapes does really add to the gaming experience. Everything about Myth and Myth II that impressed in terms of graphics is that much more impressive in Myth III. While the levels may not be quite as well designed as Bungie’s, and the plot is a little hokey, overall Myth III is a worthy successor to Soulblighter. The graphics are stunning, the gameplay is highly entertaining, and on the most difficult setting some of the levels are incredibly challenging. If you enjoyed Myth or Myth II, you really owe it to yourself to go out and grab a copy of Myth III!
Macworld (May 01, 2002)
On its own merits, Myth III: The Wolf Age is a solid real-time strategy game. It's not all it could have been, however. Alas, the team that made this game won't get another crack at a sequel--the group disbanded shortly after completing Myth III for the PC. One can only hope that Take Two Interactive and Myth's publisher, MacSoft, won't let the franchise die here; Myth means too much to too many players to let it drift away.
Myth III: The Wolf Age has the variety, gameplay, and visuals of a good game. Numerous bugs make us feel bad for recommending it, but we reluctantly do. With a good patch, Myth III could be a classic. As-is, it’s fun when the bugs don’t bite.

Clean up the cut scenes, work on the story, interface, include promised tools for the player, bring back standard control features from the first two games, overhaul the multiplayer and you’d have a perfect game. Aside from this, the latest incarnation of Myth is a good game with a great online community to play with and against. The graphics are great, the sound impressive and the story generally good enough to match up with the rest of the series. If you’re a die-hard fan of the series, this has a good chance of disappointing. If you simply want a great online game, this is definitely worth your attention. The fun of Myth is still there, despite considerable shortcomings. There are still some great moments to be had, clever new strategies to employ and the same visceral thrill of outthinking the computer or several opponents over the Internet.
