Reviews for Sacred 3

Feels too unoriginal

Not in a bad way or anything, just in a way that feels WAY too much like other games. You chose you character, and then you just run around killing hoards of enemies. Yes, it's very fun, and yes, you could play it for a long time, but in all honesty, are you willing to pay big bucks for this new game, or just go with another game that would virtually feel not different than this one does. It's very comparable to games like Fate or Torchlight 2. It IS a fun game, it's just that it needs to start acting like it is its OWN game, not a spinoff of a dozen other games.

Sacred, This is Not - Just an Average Action Grinder

Very limited RPG elements and not true to the Sacred series at all (outside a tenuous familiarity with Sacred Citadel 2 - arguably the least enjoyable of the Sacred series up to this point). This game is like Diablo-lite; without loot and minus a good bit of story. For an action-centric beat-em-up it's not bad and the graphics and sound are done well but it's not just not Sacred.

This is more like Sacred Citadel 2

Action games where a single hero beats a lot of enemies and progress through the levels are very popular on arcade machines. This genre has a lot of famous classics like Dinosaurs and Caddilacks, Double Dragons or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Some time ago Sacred series got a spin off like that called Sacred Citadel. It wasn't great, it was mediocre at best, but could provide a few hours of fun. And now we get some sort of a sequel for Sacred Citadel, for unknown reason titled Sacred 3.

Game itself is not that bad (especially when you like a simple action game with some variety), it's just it isn't something worth to belong to main Sacred line. So if you are looking for good action RPG or hack&slash and has good memories form Sacred or Sacred 2 - look elsewhere, this is wrong address. If you just want a fast, simple game and doesn't matter to you what title it is - you can buy, but maybe not right away.

Not a action RPG, not a Hack'n'Slash. Nope.

Lets get one thing straight. This is not a Sacred 3 as you'd expect it. An action RPG like the previous ones. It's more like some spin-off of the series. Here you chose one hero and run around slaughtering enemies.

Graphics and music look and sound very nice, As it should, when you consider the game weights 25GB and needs quite a gaming rig to run smoothly.

As for the gameplay... It's surprisingly fun. When you set aside the grudges of disappointed Sacred fans, you get a very good action game. Maybe not worth the money it costs now, but on a promotion, certainly worth it.
