The Guild II Renaissance is a role-playing game with elements of real-time-strategy and life-simulation game. This is a stand-alone add-on for the 2006 title The Guild II.


Guild II Renaissance takes place in Europe at the dawn of the XV century. You create a character and start a life of a popular townsman.
You can choose your appearance, characteristics and one of four specializations each of which offers you several professions. The specialization system serves as the game’s variation of the RPG class system. It determines your initial skills, available activities and what structures you can build. The gameplay is centered on the economic aspect. There are four game modes in The Guild II all of which revolve around creating a vibrant and thriving dynasty. You start with the minimum capital and almost no property, but as you gain money with your skills, you can buy new buildings, hire new workers, start a family, raise kids that later take your place as a head of the family as your main character dies.

New features

The new features of The Guild 2 Renaissance include eight new professions to choose from, new buildings, three new scenarios, difficulty adjustment. The size of the map was increased almost four-fold. The was drastically improved and some gameplay tweaks.

The Guild II Renaissance reviews and comments

Good Game;) Something like that in Style I've always been looking for. While The Graphics aren't the best, it's not the most important Part either. You can take the Direction you want, whether as craftsmen, Robbers, etc., besides your Own character is not immortal, which is why you also have to take care of your Heirs. Can only recommend the Game:)

Like it ice. In every Game of "The Guild" in German rather known as "The Guild" you have to turn off your Revergates and get your own Company Reasons. No matter how you become King of the Country and So Kinky the business to the Players or, by force, bring them around the Corner. Anyway, the Game is the best of its Series and for any Strategy fan just right. 10/10

Ok... So I didn't know The Guild before and the first Game in this Series was (fortunately) The Guild II Renaissance, which I bought because I just thought it was great-wasn't disappointed either. You can really immerse yourself in the Game and if it likes a good 3 (or more) hours of it playing at a Bit. I actually didn'T do to complain about. !!! For All those who have also watched The Guild 3-> Buy the Guild 2 Renaissance is 10 times better xD!!!

Very nice building and Strategy game, even if you have little Experience in such areas. First to the Positive: + Hours-long Gameplay + Class Selection (4 different Classes) + Variety of Buildings + great Freedom in Gameplay (do I now want to be respected?) + good Change Of Seasons Now to the Negative:-Tutorial conveys too little-runs Not always fluid-hard to get an Office (in my Opinion) My Conclusion: The Purchase was definitely worth it for me, and for a Price of 10 Euros you can't do anything wrong either. Consequently, I am very happy with the value for money.

The Guild II is a rather lengthy game. It takes time to make Progress. However, there is a Lot to do, for example, to set up your own Business, to buy and sell goods in Markets, to start a Family and to pass new Laws in Politics. At the Beginning, one of four possible Classes is chosen, which allows different Plants to be purchased or built. The biggest Difficulty then is to buy goods needed for the Farm cheaply and sell Produced goods dearly again. Meanwhile, a Partner can be sought, who can then run his own Business, who can use the cheapest to process his own Goods further. So you slowly build a real Family empire. With the Experience gained, the Character rises in their Levels and so can achieve higher Privileges until they can eventually apply for a Seat in Politics. For this to happen, Competitors must be eliminated and Eligible Voters bribed. Overall, The Guild II is a Game for Strategists who like to think further and have several Things under Control at the same time.
