the grandmaster of loot

This game is amazing, the spells are great, the loot is fantastic, you will spend hours going through your loot by the end, but well worth it. There is so much customization to do it takes a while to learn. But once you get the hang of it you will love this game, its got a massive world that takes so long to explore you probably wont be able to do it in one lifetime. This game is one of the best rpgs of its time and will not disappoint.

Really great game

I've been playing S2 on my Xbox 360 for a little over a year now, and was always bummed out that Ascaron deep-sixed before they could port the Expansion pack to the US or to the console systems.

Now that I have a laptop however I've picked up this version of the game, which includes it's expansion pack Ice and Blood, for less than what I payed for the core game on my Xbox.

Anyhow, The game is huge. There's over 20 square miles of territory to cover. Over 600 quests(!).

Every class has it's own unique storyline that changes a bit here and there depending on whether your character is good or evil.

An over-arcing storyline for the good guys and the bad guys.

An immense amount of customization, with over 400 stat points and over 900 points earned by the time you reach level 200.

Mountains of loot and a pretty decent inventory system, it could be slightly better but it's serviceable.

5 difficulty settings, so once you finish the game you can carry your toon and all their gear/loot over to the next level.

The online servers were unfortunately taken down a few years ago, but there are work-arounds to this including the ability to play over LANs (and if you hunt around the internet there are a few programs out there that emulate LANs to enable online play with friends across the world).

There's also a free playmode somewhat hidden in the co-op menu that enables you to free roam on any difficulty setting and saves your character status and and gear, but resets all the missions and bosses every time you "connect" to it. (No connection is actually needed)

Anyhow, long story short this is a great game in my opinion and is definately worth a look despite the bugs that occassionally pop up.

Also, if you do get the game remember to check out a website called darkmatters.

There's a forum there specifically dedicated to Sacred 2 and they're pretty much the largest knowledge base on the net for the game. Plus they've got a pretty sweet community created patch that fixes some of the known bugs for the game and even adds in some new gear and quests/content.

Sacred 2 Review

If you have a lot of time to kill and really a lot of time to kill get this game.World is really big and takes a lot of time to explore all places on it.Also tons of quests and stuff. Battle system is similar with Sacred 1 so there is no much to learn for it but everything else is new.New classes,you have pet,new skills and much more. If you are hack'n slash fan and you get sick from playing D3 get this game..it's worth it

This game seemed interesting at first and like it was worth the price, but all in all I have to admit I was a little disappointed. While it does work fairly easily, I've seen numerous free games of the same caliber that were easier to handle and play with and without the 3D aspect to them. The game itself was almost like playing a "Diablo 1.5". It has some of the benefits from both Diablo and Diablo 2, but also manages to retain most of their downsides.

Other than that , game is fun to play but abit unbalanced. Say youre level 25 for instance and running down the road, and on one side of the raod is level 7 or 8 mmonsters and the other side has level 28 and 29 monsters. your like HUH! Some weapon abilities don't match what character you are, yet they are designated for the barbarian for instance
