Over dit spel

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...

Greatest strategy ever, amazing plot, sweet graphic. I have spent hour playing that game. The races are unique, every race has their own special units, that make your gamepley different everytime you play another race. The campaign is awesome. I have heard that there is problem running that game on Windows 7, though I have managed to start it.
Please try this:

1. In the Steam game library, right click the game
2. Select "Properties"
3. Select the "Local Files" tab
4. Click "Verify integrity of game cache"

This has been known to easily fix the "Failed to find steam" error. If the issue persists then it is recommended you try these steps:

1. Open the Start Menu, right click "Computer", and select "Properties".
2. From the column on the left of the new panel, select "Advanced System Settings".
3. From the new dialogue, press "Environment Variables..." (at the bottom of the "Advanced" panel, just above "OK", "Cancel", and "Apply").
4. In the top half of the newly opened dialogue (User variables) if there is:
a - no existing entry for PATH, use "New..." to add it (Variable Name: PATH, Variable Value: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam -- i.e. wherever you have Steam installed).
b - already an entry for PATH, use "Edit..." to add ;C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam (or wherever your Steam is installed) at the end of the existing value. (Note the semi-colon to separate the value that was already there from the new bit with the Steam path.)
5. Press "OK"
6. Log off and log on again. You should now be able to run the Steam titles without problems.
If you have further issues I suggest you contact Steam Support as there may be issues with your Steam Client.

After that the game will start, but it can be really slow ( about 1 FPS), try than setting at highest possible graphic settings and check box called 'User Direct3D'. It starts on fullscrean, but it is slightly smaller than your whole monitor, so it should allow you to run it and enjoy that great game!

A dark gothic themed fantasy turn based strategy games with many factions. Plays rather simply with squad formations mixed in with map exploration. The combat system differs from other entries of the genre and might either hit strongly or miss depending on the audience. There is a degree of repetitiveness into carrying your squad through every mission but your leader will carry over from mission to mission and will attain godlike strenght. Very memorable units and very strong story. The overland map does not look very well but once you get used to it it has the decency to be effective in displaying what you need to know and the style is still appropriate to the setting. The combat and zoomed in sequences look very good still in my humble opinion.

This game will run well on any machine except for a slow mouse cursor bug that can be fixed. I will edit my review once I find up to date information regarding it.

Marvelous game. Grew up with it. It's worth every penny. I wish Disciples III would be half as good as this one, but is not unfortunately.

If you're using windows 7 or 8 do not buy. I bought it for $1.62 and I feel cheated. The game lags unbelievably hard, and generally crashes after more than a few minutes of battle. It's a shame really. This was a really fun game with some great artwork and battles. I bought it because I can't find my old disk, but it's so unplayable that I shouldn't have bothered.

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

Turn based strategy, with dark gothic climate, you can feel evil evrywhere, especially that good side (elves, imperium, dwarves) is loosing a lot in wars with demons and undead. Also the game has a good hero development alongside with artefacts and etc.
Music in Disciples is magnificent, check it in youtube ^^

Что я могу сказать про эту замечательную игру? Игра прекрасна! И пусть многим больше пришлась по душе серия "Heroes", я все таки выделяю Disciples 2. Игра скрасила огромное количество часов в моей жизни! И радует по сий день! За что разработчикам огромное спасибо! Если ты ценитель пошаговых стратегий, то пройти мимо данной игры можно смело считать преступлением! Поиграй в неё, но не трогай 3-ю часть, она лишь испортит картинку... (10 из 10)

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.

Great game. Very similar to HoMM3 but your parties consist of a more traditional hero setup as opposed to numbers of troops. Playing it on windows 8.1 I managed to get it to work perfectly. If you get "failed to initialize" set it to XP service pack 2 in compatibility and reduce the resolution in configuration. If you have lag then turn on D3D.

The game has some issues running on a newer issue(Mostly in the starting up process), but get over that and its fine. Hopefully they will update it, since they loaded up a Windows 7 compatiable version of the original game.

Anyway, if you played Heroes of Might and Magic, your KINDA in for a similar experience, but with multiple differences. To call it a "Heroes Clone" would be inaccurate at best. You can level up your heroes, yes, but you also level up your units. Instead of producing hordes of units, your leveling up one unit, making keeping them alive more important. Even a low level unit like a cultist can level up and become a true tool of doom.

All and all, I recommend this, but be careful if your running it on a newer system.

Just wanted to say that I am thrilled to have access again to this classic old school turn-based strategy game, with some of the best artwork in the genre. I was a bit leery after reading all the Win 7 & 8 problems people had, but I have had none and the game is running perfectly, smoothly and without lag on Windows 8.1. I followed the instructions in the forums here to disable Steam overlay, set the exec file properties to WinXp svc pak 2, and set the config editor to enable"Use Direct 3D," and it worked like a charm. Great game, one of the original 'just one more turn' time sinks, and thanks to Steam for making it available and to those who did the troubleshooting to allow it to run on modern systems.

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.

Doesn't work. Windows 7 64-bit.

After trying numerous fixes, I just get a black screen. As much fun as Disciples is, I can't recommend that you buy this.

I'll gladly change my review if the game works. I already know the game itself is a lot of fun, which is why I bought it. It just doesn't work on Steam.

Still completely broken. Picked it up a few sales back. Played it in college years ago, and I was so excited to play again. But even after scouring forums across the internet the best I could get out of it was unplayable lag and the worst was total operating system crash. I keep trying to no avail. Don't spend your hard-earned $1.62 until it's been fixed.

This refers to Windows 8.1

Dark. Grim. Haunting - this is what Disciples II excels at.

An awesome written story, that will actually keep you playing the game for hours.
Amazing 2D art, that will immerse you in a true fantasy world, all of this with an ocean of an amazingly written soundtrack.

This is not your typical TBS, where all the factions look the same sheep with a different skin. You will need all the arsenal to conquer your foes: cunning, intel, what upgrades to pick for your units, because your units will gain XP in battles, being ruthless (or compasionate!), and so on and so forth.

It is worth every single penny because when you press Play you will not start a game, you will enter a true fantasy world where all your actions matter!

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.
