About This Game

Disciples II: Gallean's Return is a compilation edition that includes the base game, Disciples II: Dark Prophecy, plus the two standalone expansions Disciples II: Guardians of the Light and Disciples II: Servants of the Dark.

Disciples II: Guardians of the Light is a stand-alone expansion that lets you dive into the fantastical world of Disciples II as either the Empire or the Mountain Clans.

The Empire is decaying from within as self-proclaimed rulers struggle for control of the now vacant throne while a cruel Inquisition sweeps across the human lands, causing rebellion and misery. Meanwhile the Clans, recovering from their near-destruction, begin to reunite their tribes. They have received divine instructions and now seek to uncover an ancient ritual that will let them communicate with their god, Wotan.

Disciples II: Servants of the Dark is a stand-alone expansion that brings you into the never-ending quest for supremacy as either the Undead Hordes or the Legions of the Damned.

On the dark side, the Legions of the Damned enact a plan to spread Bethrezen’s plague across Nevendaar. They sense the threat brought about by the rebirth of the Elven god and will stop at nothing to steal this power for their own purposes. Perhaps most pivotal to the conflict, however, is Mortis and her army of Undead Hordes. After all, the rebirth of her husband Gallean was her doing. He had rejected her for what she had become, a twisted, heartless beast. Now she would teach her mate a lesson... one that would scar his people for eternity...

Bought it and played it for 8 hours straight. Great stuff, similar to HOMM III. (Starting it in the 1024x768 resolution gets rid of the "Can't initialize" error. I had no other issues with the game and I can certainly say that it is not a broken version like some of the users said about it.) The only downside is that much like HOMM III, the gameplay is a huge timesink so prepare to notice a couple of hours flying by if you start playing it.

One of the best games ever and also the biggest inspirations for the games we make ourselves.

As for those who complain it doesn't work on win 7 64 bit, it takes a few steps to make it playable. And it works just fine after that.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 7 64BIT !!!

Ok, here's the long review;
i get a 'can't initiliaze' error message upon starting the game, and apparently I'm not the only.

I've read through the community posts and none of their tricks were working for me;

The one thing I didn't try was turning off the UAC, and no, I'm not going to cripple security of my system for one game;

The fault of this whole mess lies with Steam for selling it in the first place, i don't expect old games to be compatible forever, but i do expect people who sell them to make sure they'll work on the majority of the OS's out there

I cant tell you how entertaining this game is, artistically wonderful athmospere and impressive musics, nice and simple graphics, warning the game supports 1024x800 resolution maximum and disciples-3 was a dissapointment after such a masterpiece.

Still the best alternative to Heroes of Might and Magic and Kings Bounty.

PS: If this game don't work properly on 64-bit win7 - just find .exe icon and set winXP sp2 compatibility mode
