  • Summary: A stand-alone expansion that lets you dive into the fantastical world of Disciples II as either the Empire or the Mountain Clans. In Guardians of the Light, 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. [Strategy First] Expand

    Its attention to detail, exciting gameplay, immersive graphics and wonderful soundtrack make the game a great buy.
  2. Guardians of the Light broadens the scope of its predecessor but isn’t overly friendly to newer players.
  3. I was particularly impressed with the polished depth and quality combined with the relatively low system requirements. That is a rarity these days.
  4. Has a lot going for it, though it's not the best introduction to this stellar series, and it doesn't offer quite as much bang for the buck as it should to the existing fanbase. [Sept 2003, p.77]
  5. On its own merits, this expansion is a reasonably good deal, but it's best suited for the hard-core Disciples II fan who wishes to play every single official scenario for the game.
  6. The new campaigns take advantage of a larger supported map size, allowing for longer and more complicated scenarios. [Oct 2003, p.117]
  7. 65
    Teases more than pleases. It feels like half of what a good expansion should be, but at the same time is a great buy for those new to the series.
