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...

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.

An old game. If you like turn based strategy games like Heroes series, try it out. It has darker atmosphere, a sense of hopelessness and not as colorful as Heroes 3.

If you have any problems, disable steam overlay and/or run it with win xp compatibility.

To anyone who is concerned by the reviews claiming that this is unplayable; do not listen. I am on windows 7 and managed to get the game working in about five minutes by running it in compatability mode and tweaking the game settings. There are a number of reviews and posts in the hub that give clear instruction on how to get it running. You may have to fool around with different settings to make it run well but don't over look ths classic 4x especially not with such a low price.

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.
