This is the add on that complimented the other
add on called Guardians of the Light. For some reason I preferred
this game to Guardians, and judging by the very small amount of new
stuff that is included, really this and Guardians should have been
on the one disc. I have however also taken into account that this is
a bargain priced game over here in Australia, but even so we canít
blame distributor Auran, rather Strategy First for not looking after
the rabid fans of Disciples II as well as they should.
As the title suggests in this one you get to play
the bad guys in this one and that involves the undead and all sorts
of nasties. All that has happened essentially in this version of
events is that you can now see how it was for the other side when
you were battling for the forces of light. A good concept but
considering the slap dash way it is carried out, does not make for a
solid add on package.
I am not sure that everyone who has played the
series will really like what has happened to the franchise and it is
sure to get up some peopleís backs. Like I said, itís a cheap enough
game to buy however from a practical perspective, you would feel
like you were getting a fully-fledged addon if the light and dark
games were bundled. Still, if you have not played Disciples II
before then you are getting a great value for money game.
