This stand-alone "expansion" brings a number of enhancements and new features to 2002's surprise hit turn-based strategy game Disciples II: Dark Prophecy. In addition to the major campaigns featured in the original release, Disciples II: Guardians of the Light includes two additional "mini-campaigns," which are geared toward higher-level characters that may have already experienced the original story.
This release's new stories let players choose to command either the Empire or the Mountain Clans, in a struggle to wrest control of the fantasy world from dark and evil rivals. The Empire is in trouble, as too many pretenders vie to claim a vacant throne, while the Clans have just begun to rebuild after recent struggles, reuniting their tribes.
Aside from the two mini-campaigns, other notable features include new music tracks, new capital backgrounds, and three new special characters, as well as better artificial intelligence, an improved Scenario Editor, and a smoother interface. The release of this good-themed Guardians of the Light precedes that of its companion game, the evil-oriented Disciples II: Servants of the Dark. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
