This is a great turn based strategy game from back in the day. You know, when games didint have triple A turd ratings and came with zero bugs.
So what you get here, grimdark setting, gothic art style, 4 factions, interesting story, Great game. Boggles the mind how a similar game hasn't been made until now
A thousand curses on akella and calypso for making the travesty called disciples 3. May you suffer of diarrhea for eternity
Disciples 2 is not as well-known as Heroes 3 but in my opinion it is at just as good and in some aspects even better. I can still play campaign/quick match 15+ years after its initial release and have a lot of fun.
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.
