One of my favorite RPG games!

This game, when I found it on the xbox 360, had me interested one time. I forget how I actually took an interest in it though, but I am glad I did.

I remember actually noticing the original Sacred in a Gamestop store very long ago but never thought of it actually being any good, but after I played Sacred 2 for many, many hours, I actually enjoyed the way the game worked.

Anyways, the open-world for Sacred makes the game by far extremely enjoyable, and very, very open. If there was one thing I could relate it to, you could compare it to World of Warcraft world size (at least the base game) if not that, somewhat bigger.

The characters all play a bit differently, and you can play either light or shadow I believe the options are (which is pretty much good vs. evil). After you beat the game through bronze (for an easy stroll through the game) or silver (which is a bit more of a challenge in the beginning) you can then progress to the next difficulty. They are as follows: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Niobium (I think XD).

The skills for each character in this game have a cooldown instead of being dependent on any other resource like mana. all the skills and things you do with your abilities/skills can modify hhow long it takes to use a skills and those kinds of factors.

The items are quite interesting and are just about the same color coding as any other game. Blue is magic, yellow is rare, there are set items and some legendary/unique items...I believe I received one ONCE from a quest...and that was on the PC, before that i'm pretty sure even my first Shadow Warrior character on 360, which was around level 50-60 i think, never noticed one.

The gear that drops can always be for another character, and you can always stash it away in case you make that Temple Guardian or whomever you are not playing at the time. In the PC version as well, you have both a "Shared Stash" and a "My Stash" which makes the game much easier to stow away what you feel you need to save (the xbox 360 version was and is, I feel, a bit clunkier).

You CAN play this online, but you need one of those external programs to actually get it to work since I believe the servers are down, but you can also play local which I have done and it is very fun.

Although I haven't put many hours into this game on PC recently or since I have purchased it, it has many quests as it says as well. I have put many hours into this game at one point or another and I still believe it does not disappoint!

ALSO! : do not forget to look up the most recent community patch as it brings and adds throwable weapons/potions, claw weapons, game fixes and some other stuff I forget about.

Have fun in your journey...in Ancaria! music fades in "War it's now or never, we shall stand together, one by one, this world is Sacred!" :D

Old School Charm with new school clothes on

I really enjoyed playing this updated version of Sacred. It was fun when I played it around ten years ago and has only gotten better with this update. Smooth and immersive gameplay that in the style of RPG's from days long gone (I am deliberately alluding to old school charm and all those stupid gitchy sayings btw), you need to have some hours to kill to beat the game. Personally, that is what I love about Sacred Gold...plenty of enjoyable, time killing quests and side quests, and tons of good loot. The skill tree aspect of the game makes it even that much better. If you don't want to beat a game in a single Saturday, and really enjoy classic RPG gaming...this one is for you!

This is how you do a hack n slash loot game

I bought this way back when first released, I have to say Deep Silver's take on Action RPG games STILL plays, looks better than, and is more fun than Diablo 3 in my view, especially on a Nvidia gpu with physx enabled. Only word of warning is as the servers no longer excist for multiplayer you will need to use apps like Tunngle or Hamachi to play with friends on the LAN mode.

Good action RPG.

Bigshrimp | Jan. 30, 2013 | See all Bigshrimp's reviews »

If you liked the first Sacred, then you also loved Sacred 2. It has better graphics, more content and lots of action. If you are into Diablo, Torchlight and other loot driven action RPGs then this game will satisfy you as well.

Lot of options to build your character and so many quests to go through, good sound quality music and effects. Overall a decently polished game that I would not recommend passing up on. Two thumbs up.

PS. I hope they make a Sacred 3 in the future.

Highly addicting

Lekes | Jan. 29, 2013 | See all Lekes's reviews »

This is an awesome action RPG with an incredibly deep and customizable character creation system. If you're a fan of loot centric games like Diablo or WoW, you'll have a blast with this game. It has tons to do, and loads of enemies to bash and being able to play co-op is another great plus for it. The minor flaws can be overlooked by the massive amount of gameplay and the overall fun of the game.

Sacred

Sacred 2 is open world hack'n slash game. It has beautiful graphics, but it also requires much from computer.

Playing Sacred 2 with friends is most fun. Together beating badass bosses, questing, discovering secrets, exploring the world of sacred. All this with fantastic soundtrack, featuring one of the greatest Power Metal bands: Blind Guardian.

Ah...yes there are also funny stuff written in the grave stones.

A good hack'n slash

panz3r88 | Dec. 18, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »

Sacred 2 is a good game if you love the hack'n slash genre. The map is huge and you will pass many hours going around the various location defeating the hordes of enemies that attack you. If you love this type of games you will pass many hours trying to increase the level and the abilities of your character and search for an armor or weapon with better stats. I really like the combo system present in Sacred 2, that allow you to select a group of your abilities and attacks and activate them pressing only one button. An other good aspect of the game is the posibility to go around the map with a horse or a special mount that can be acquired in a special island. The boss of the game are fun and quite hard to defeat, especially at the highest dificulty levels. Sacred 2 has a good gameplay, the only weak point is the presence of some bugs that can become annoying.

The great sequel

DukePaul | Dec. 17, 2012 | See all DukePaul's reviews »

I love this game, it is very addictive if you like hack and slash enemies, loot corpses and buy new weapons and items while you do missions and this game has a lot of quests between the original game and the add-on, you will need a lot hours to beat this game.

The graphics are a bit outdated but they are clean and wonderful, the animations are smooth and the character customization is impressive. Thanks to the humour of some dialogues this game has a perfect atmosphere.

The world is big and you can go anywhere, take your time to explore or do some quests.

If you heard this game had a lot of bugs, most of them are fixed now if you have the last patch installed, so your experience will be great if your game is updated.

I can say Sacred 2 is one of the best Diablo clones you can play.
