Jan 19, 2013After being tricked into buying the horridly boring Disciples 3, i had to go back to Disciples 2. Even after seven years of letting it sit on my shelf and playing much more graphically advanced games like Elder scrolls: oblivion and and Mass effect, Disciples 2 STILL manages to suck me into its world.

Campaign is only a pretext.
Maybe MP has an interest, but I'm not into it.… Expand
