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...

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.

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.

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.

Although there is some easily fixable launch issues, This game is awesome! The graphics are very nostalgic and if you can apreciate that, then you should just buy the game right now. Howeverm the gameplay is awesome and really fun sometimes it can be very unforgiving, but thats what makes the game fun. If you are into turn based strategy games, i would reccomend this.

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.

Does not work on 32 Bit or 64 Bit Windows 7 Nor does it work on 32 Bit or 64 Bit Windows 8

The workarounds and compatability modes also do not work.

This game is completly unplayable with the Steam Version. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY like I did!

Im Very Sad.

Trying all known advice about the game (including that in the above review), this game still refuses to work. I can't recommend it. I wish I hadn't wasted money on this game I can't play.
