In H3: Underpowered
In H4: Overpowered.
A few things to note about hypnotize in H3:
Hypnotize uses the enemy's stat ratings. Thus a creature from a Barberian Hero will do more damage than one from a Wizard.

You can attack the hypnotized unit with your own units but not the other way around unless the 2nd target is also under influence of hypnotize. The enemy cannot attack his own hypnotized unit however attacks like Death Cloud will still do damage.

If you have a unit hypnotized and the enemy strikes down your last unit, you will automatically lose.

You do not keep a hypnotized creature if the enemy chose to flee or surrender, they are also not lost for the enemy if you flee or surrender with the unit under your spell.

Unlike attack and defense values from the Hero remaining, Morale and Luck is changed to the spellcaster's statistics.

Unit Speed will be determined per normal. If you and the enemy has 2x grand elves split in two stacks of 1x and the first player hypnotizes enemy grand elf N1, the turn will go to player 1 and then again to player 1's grand elf N2 before finally letting player 2 act last with grand elf N2.

If a unit of each side is under influence of hypnotize and a player cast a mass spell like Armageddon, both players lose if all units die.

A hypnotized unit can use its spells, for example you can resurrect a dead stack using a hypnotized Arch Angel, buff/debuff with Enchanter's or Master Genies.

UUUooooaaa!!! So, it's dangerous to use it instead of Blind for the resurrect trick.

It's also dangerous to use if your morale is low because you lose 1 turn of the spell even if the monster gets negative morale. However the hypnotized unit gets its morale from the hero, but is not affected by the creatures of that hero. For instance a Grand Elf with 1+ morale gets mind controlled by a enemy hero with 0 morale modifiers, will have 0 morale even if the hero has a undead ghost dragon in the ranks.
