A fantastic Turn-Based strategy gameNinty96zie | Dec. 10, 2012 | See all Ninty96zie's reviews »
If you've played any of the Heroes franchise, you'll be right at home here. The basic gameplay is very similar to the Heroes franchise, but the battles take place in a more Turn Based RPG way - Unlike the heroes game, there is no moving around troops, it's more like a Final Fantasy game, albeit each troop can only do their specific attack, defend or wait. The campaigns are long and tell pretty decent stories, and the lore creates a cogent and believable world. The difficulty ceiling is high as a beginner, but the learning curve is nice - after one game during the campaign, you should feel confident in what you are doing. I would advise buying this if you are a fan of SRPGs, or even a fan of the Civilization games, as this game draws many parallels to it.
Pretty good Heroes-like gamejeyko | Sept. 24, 2012 | See all jeyko's reviews »
I should start off by saying that I did not grow up with the Disciples series, so this is my first time trying off Disciples 2 (I got it off the free GMG promo). And my first thought - god, this is a lot like Heroes. A lot. And there is nothing wrong in that as it does enough different to keep me playing through the whole campaign. It is quite easy to learn and get into (well probably because I play a lot of Heroes) and you can easily get that feeling of forgetting time which you get in Heroes. But the whole game feels kind-of unpolished and I still prefer Heroes. But for a fun distraction Disciples 2 is great, and if it's on a sale it's a nice choice to pick it up.

Turn-based game with a enjoyable story and a lot of races with different plots, units, buildings and heroes. Each of the races have a different campaign. With the gold edition you have too the 3 exp Dark Prophecy Gallean's Return Rise of the Elves will add new races and campaigns. Nice.
