    Yes, the game isn’t perfect but it’s a lot of fun.

    Sacred 3 doesn’t do a whole lot wrong other than having lackluster writing. However, as has always been the case with the series, the action is very standard. There’s not a great deal of depth, but if you want to spend a few hours hacking and slashing your way through hordes of enemies, you could do a lot worse.

    Calling Sacred 3 a desecration might be a bit harsh but the new direction this series has taken is questionable at best. It’s a decent but overtly simple action RPG. Probably not the sequel Sacred fans were waiting for. [Aug 2014, p.61]

    Considering the scope of its predecessors and how far the genre has come since the series’ inception a decade ago, that’s as unnecessary as it is unwelcome. Still, there’s potential here and approached with the right mindset and a group of friends there’s some fun to be had. Streamline your expectations, in other words, and you’re more likely to view Sacred 3 as slick rather than shallow.

    Sacred 3 could’ve been a very good game, but it falls short on many levels. The co-op mode can be fun for a couple of hours if you play with a buddy, but there’s a big chance you’re already bored by the awful humor and cliché story. Sacred 3 is far from a worthy sequel to the series.

    Sacred 3 is a very mediocre role-playing game. It’s not the looks and even the gameplay has its moments. It’s the fact that there’s little content, and the content that is present feels bland. The porting to pc is handled poorly as well. Furthermore, Sacred 3 tries to be funny, but unfortunately isn’t.

    Sacred 3 has the skeleton of a fun co-op hack 'n' slash experience, but it's marred by too much repetition, balance issues, and the worst comedy routine this side of Open Mic Night at the Middle of Nowhere Comedy Shack.

    This Game takes a couple of steps back from the previous installment in the series but its not all bad. Firstly the game play is differentThis Game takes a couple of steps back from the previous installment in the series but its not all bad. Firstly the game play is different from others in the series as it is not open world and there isn't really an equipment system. The game feels more like Gauntlet. Co-op in the game is fun. Environments are beautiful. Combat is fun. Game play is repetitive. Look at this game as an all new game series and not as another Sacred game. Expand

Sacred 3 has hardly any resemblance to Sacred and Sacred 2. I recommended this game to friends before it came out. Now I have to apologize to each one. Everything I enjoyed from the 2 originals are gone. This game should have been called something else. By itself its a fun hack and slash videogame. Cool moves but gets boring fast. Excellent graphics but not what I was expecting. The commentator is funny at first but turns annoying quickly. I was looking forward to exploring a new world but I guess I have to wait for another game. Expand

    They f**cked up a decent RPG game turning it in a ARPG for booring consoles. 90% of the game features of sacred 1,2 are gone in this waste ofThey f**cked up a decent RPG game turning it in a ARPG for booring consoles. 90% of the game features of sacred 1,2 are gone in this waste of money of a scam. The custumers aimed here are little kids of 10 years old, that like flashy and easy gameplay. The atrocity is not the downfall gameplay but it's dialogue which killed my brain cells in just 6 min, I swear cartoons are Shakespeare's plays compared to the story of sacred 3. If you were dissappointed with Dungeon Siege 3, be prepared to lower your standards with **** 3. I mean drop them in a deep dark pit of dissappointment. Expand

    How dare you calling this Sacred 3. I was really looking forward to the game I used to love, but better graphics, new quests, even heroesHow dare you calling this Sacred 3. I was really looking forward to the game I used to love, but better graphics, new quests, even heroes maybe. This is very disappointing, obviously made for a console, lacking everything I knew from previous games, and loved. If it was just called something else I might have given it a 4 but not to Sacred sequel. Expand
