Welcome to Ancaria, a world filled with pirate thieves and ghastly mutations

GDN Quick N Dirty Review
A lot to do to keep you entertained. Lots of detail in the environment but a fairly cliche storyline. Up to 16 player LAN party is cool but in the end it’s nothing innovative, just pretty and some good fun for RPG lovers.

who have come into contact with the gooey blue substance also known as T-energy. You create your character and assist the helpless gaining experience and attributes to improve your character and rid the highly graphic landscapes of the evil that enthrals them. Really doesn’t sound familiar in the slightest, now does it? (sarcasm) 

What does this non-MMORPG have that makes it stand out from the rest of other fantasy games out there?. Although there is an option to play online with up to 16 other players it is pretty much your average questing throughout the lands, gaining better armour, gold and experience in the effort to improve the level of expertise and greatness your character is capable of. The game introduces both good and bad characters and the new temple guardian character which looks very similar to a robotic Egyptian god with a laser embedded in his arm this character lives for the T-enery rather than having been turned into a menacing monster by it. The T-energy, which has leaked throughout the lands, does seem to be the majority of the storyline’s main plot and the cause of all conflict

Graphically this game really does not fall short in any way. The amount of detail put into the landscapes from the leaves on the trees to the grass blowing in the meadows. Although I could not get the graphics working to its full potential on my system I did manage to get the PhysX working but I felt it only really added slight novelty to the game play. It didn’t add any extra eye candy that other games such as Mirror’s Edge found a use for it, but it did add in the way that the environment moved around you and your character battled did seem slightly different.

 Our Rating for Sacred 2 Review (PC)
6.5
Replay
A lot to do to keep you entertained does offer a good few hours of game play on or offline
8.5
Graphics
A lot of detail obviously went into the landscapes but needs one hell of a powerful PC to be able to run it smoothly.
7.5
Sound
music wasn’t overly annoying and rock tunes complemented the battle mode. Slightly annoying thing was your character repeating one of its 5 lines
7.5
Gameplay
Controls are pretty easy to get used to but camera angles seemed square and getting your character where you wanted it to go could be tricky sometimes
7.0
Multiplayer
With the possibility of playing up to 16 other player over a LAN this can be interesting and does offer a good alternative to lonesome questing
6.5
Overall
This game does have a lot to offer but it doesn’t really break the mold or add anything different in this genre. Pretty, good concepts, just needs more execution.
