    Ascaron team deserves a bow with a flourish for their creation: a beautiful, rich fantasy world. It also deserves a kick in the pants for spoiling the fun with lots of annoying bugs. But punishing the enemies using an electric guitar relieves the tension considerably. [Dec 2008]
  3. Out of the box bugs make a mockery of Ascaron’s hard work, making the difficult job of selling an already unfashionable genre even harder. But even we can recognise that despite everything, some of the sheen and charm has worn off the second time around. Whatever Ascaron has planned to make a success of next year’s console releases, they have some hard work ahead.
  4. Still, this game is at home on the PC, there's no mistake. It's too bad that home isn't a terribly comfortable one.
  5. Sacred II nails the unfettered joy of exploring a wide-open fantasy world and ties it to the always-amusing process of building a heroic avatar to meet the stiffest of challenges. To dismiss it merely because of its (dozens of) missteps is to lose out on the many things it does well.
  6. Basically a nice Action-RPG which is its own worst enemy with repetitive gameplay, complicated inventory and a dull story.

    What it misses is the nuance, the charm and the challenge that marked both the original games and the best of the Diablo clones (such as Titan Quest). In short, Sacred 2 is a game that's easy to miss without really missing out.

    If you're a Diablo clone fan, this is a must play. A bit different than the first, but with the same wide-open game world to fool around If you're a Diablo clone fan, this is a must play. A bit different than the first, but with the same wide-open game world to fool around in. As of May 2009, almost all bugs have been eliminated, so if you were frustrated by earlier play, or were warned off by reviewers, give it another try. Expand

Not nearly finished with it but so far it is absolutely amazing. Graphically the best I've seen in an ARPG, sound effects and music is brilliant and character customization is superbly complex and fun to play around with. I'm not sure when the rest of the world will get this game but I can truely recommend it. Ancaria Forever! Expand

Now that I have 3 months of playing time, I can honestly say this is the new king of hack & slash. Titan Quest was awesome but Sacred 2 takes the ARPG to a new level. Mounts for fast travel are a welcome hack & slash addition. There are TONS of ways to configure & build the six available player races. Loot is plentiful and the game world is HUGE. Make sure you learn how the skills, attributes & various item modifiers work before you put a final judgement on this game. It has been patched & I have had no crashes whatsoever. My rig: E 6550 dual core, 4 GB ram, HD 3870 runs at highest settings with no lag. Haven't played open net so I can't vouch for online performance. If you remove the six written reviews that gave the game a ZERO then the average of the 55 remaining reviews including my 9/10 would be 7.8. Expand

    The World is wide, and you can go anywhere you want, there's no predifined path / story. That's quite enjoyable to do what you want.

    As far as gameplay is concerned, it is average, and fights aren't as precise and tactical as I would like.

    Anyway, there's hours of fun, and tons of respawning monsters !

Deep Silver logo is on the box ( just like in gothic 3 , which works badly too but its a good game tho). I started the game and I didnt liked it from the beggining . The way my character was moving was annoying and stupid. All the characters in this game look bad. It's hard to play this game , Sacred 1 was wayyy better. The camera angle is bad in a 3D game. Wasted money on this...it's like 25gb on hard drive , long installation... Don't buy this , wait for Diablo 3 :) Expand

    Horrible map layout, no clear main-quest path through the zones, no atmosphere, very poor graphics on full zoomout, very high mob aggro rangeHorrible map layout, no clear main-quest path through the zones, no atmosphere, very poor graphics on full zoomout, very high mob aggro range preventing lower zoom game play. the combat is extremely dull and doesn't play well. there are no significant dungeons. I made it to level 20 and gave up, this game just isn't fun.
    With a better world layout (less dead ends, obstacles to endlessly run around due to the pseudo-freedom), better aggro/zoom ballance, more fluid gameplay and some form of clear path through the game this could be ok. 3/10 - not even worth stealing.

    this game is buggy even after 1.1 gig of patches. Moreover, it introduces new bugs every day. Currently it impossible for the majority of the this game is buggy even after 1.1 gig of patches. Moreover, it introduces new bugs every day. Currently it impossible for the majority of the online population to CREATE A GAME, and they are therefore stuck to play on public ascaron server, also unable to progress their online campaign status. The enemies are also bugged, they will disappear underground, and you will not be able to target them unless using AoE attacks, if your class has one. Amazingly, this happens also with bosses that are 20 times bigger than standard enemies, they will get stuck underground, they will not attack you, and it will take 30 minutes to kill them with AoE attacks. This still happens after the latest patch changing what should be a thrilling fight into a snorefest. Be careful; this game may look pretty at the start, and it takes a good 20 hours of game to realise how many flaws and bugs there are. You will lose items, your stash once filled with precious equipment will inexplicably become empty without nobody touching it, and countless other problems. Currently there is a bug that completely wipes your inventory. This game is, as of today, effectively unplayable online by a large part of its customers, and there has been zero support from the devs. They do not know what is causing the bug and are not doing anything to improve the problem. Save your money for another game, even if you find at 20$ this game is not worth the stress and frustration it will cause you. Expand
