Actually, I like basegolf the best of the new games.
Disciples II just isn't fun. You can only cast spells in the main map. The UI is confusing. If I want to have a unit stay in the same place for a few turns, I have to hit "guard" every single turn.
Empires also isn't fun. The economics of the game don't make much sense, nor do most of the special buildings and items on the map. Food management for troops away from my base is a chore rather than fun.
I haven't been able to understand ORB, especially since the manual is missing. (There's a link that says "documentation", but all it does is launches the game.)
