    After 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.

    Certainly, it`s a Might and magic ripoff, but `im okay with that, as D2 took just
    enough from it to be interesting and did its own thing.

    If you`re into deep turn based games that require your patience and greatly rewards it, then Disciples 2 is for you

    If you aren`t, you`ll probably get bored with it.



    And the king returned from his holy quest, and cried triumphantly: Behold! I have found a treasure long buried!

    And the people rejoiced!

    And there was much feasting, and singing, and merrymaking.

    Repetitive gameplay, austere combat that feels mostly down to luck early on, a confusing world map and bulky interface combined with a storyline that has been done to death, Disciples 2 simply does not invite the player to step into its world despite some of the very appealing art work.

    A nearly faultless turn-based strategy game with some RPG elements, Disciples II is surprisingly addictive. It featured gorgeous graphics for its time, and that in conjunction with the eery soundtrack created an atmospheric and immersive gameplay experience that still holds up today.

    Combat is the best aspect of this game, a few carefully balanced units that after many battles become extremely strong. Unit tree development is also well thought out. However you need so many battles to make your units strong enough, that you can play with only one army - you won't have the time to train another one.
    Once and if your army is defeated, you're good to restart the
    campaign..
    Cities are ok, maps are confusing and poorly drawn, even for a 2003 game.
    Campaign is only a pretext.
    Maybe MP has an interest, but I'm not into it.

    One of my favorite turn based games...
    And can't say it have great graphics, but musn't forget when it was released...It's classic...
    Great to play it as SP same MP, good gameplay and good atmosphere with quite good storyline, heros and units...

    Amazing game. Great atmosphere with beautiful dark soundtrack and graphics. Love the game and wish someone would port it to iPad and make good sequel (normal D III, maybe still 2D with enchanted graphics for FullHD and new creature levels).

    One of the more addictive and entertaining strategy titles I've played in quite a while.

    You won't hear complaints about the graphics, which are absolutely gorgeous. For one, there is a certain style to the artwork; it's not quite anime, but it does have a hint of it.
  3. It's one of those very rare computer games that draws on all the usual fantasy conventions but presents them in truly inspired, artistic form...[It] has an elegant simplicity about it.
