Sacred 3 – Review (360, PS3, PC)

mature-gaming.com
1 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I’m an explorer in uncharted territory. Not often does my ship of gaming fancy sail into dungeon crawling waters, excluding a brief excursion with Torchlight, until I washed up on the shores of Sacred 3.

Sacred 3

True achievements
9 October 2014
  • Conclusion: It feels like there was no consideration for the fans, and no respect for the franchise as a whole. To summarize: + Technically solid + Colourful and silly +/- Surprisingly fun but shallow combat +/- Simple progression - Annoying and cringe-worthy dialogue - Extremely short and overpriced -...

Sacred 3 Review (PC)

Softpedia
6 September 2014
  • Conclusion: There is no point in comparing Sacred 3 to either of the two previous games in the series, as it unfortunately shares nothing with them. It just feels like a scam meant to chip some money from careless nostalgic gamers, much like shoving dirt into a jar and labeling it "grandma's peach jam.
  • Pros: + enjoyable if you like endlessly clicking one button and killing tons of meaningless enemies, + action combat system has some good points, + decent visuals, + easy to pick up if you're a casual gamer
  • Cons: - levels and progression are linear, - it becomes monotonous very quickly, - very shallow and poor overall design, - weak combat system, - not really part of the Sacred series

Sacred 3

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: If you’re bored out of your mind and you need an RPG fast, well, then stay bored. You don’t want to be even more bored. It’s probably best to return to games like Diablo 3 and Divinity: Original Sin, both of which offer ten times the content and ten times the fun.
  • Pros: Fun bosses, quick-paced action-packed and simple to get into;
  • Cons: Repetitive and short, but what's more to the point it's remarkably restrictive for an RPG, as it offers little choice in practically every aspect of gameplay.

Sacred 3 – A Review (PC)

18 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Fans of Sacred and Sacred 2, be wary in purchasing Sacred 3. It isn’t the same game style that you have come to know with the previous games. Having more in common with Gauntlet than Diablo 3, Sacred 3 lacks any type of talent tree system for customization, or an equipment loot system that makes...

Treading Unholy Ground

13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The future of the Sacred series was looking shaky when developer Ascaron went insolvent after the console release of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel in 2009. Publisher Deep Silver stepped in, taking over support for the final expansion on PC, before giving development duties for a third game in the series to...

12 August 2014
  • Summary: What's in a name? If you take the example of Sacred 3, very little. Publisher Deep Silver may have pasted the name of this action role-playing franchise on its new entry in the hack-and-slash genre, but the game itself is little more than a meticulously mediocre button-masher that strips out the...
  • Pros: Fast-moving levels loaded with non-stop combat, Inventive, challenging boss fights, Attractive and colorful visuals
  • Cons: Bland and repetitive level design, Linear exploration lacks the punctuation of quest assignments or item drops, Few meaningful choices when it comes to skills and equipped items, Obnoxious script and voice-acting

Sacred 3

IGN
4 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Sacred 3 is a beautifully detailed, enjoyably shallow experience that's better with friends. Sacred 2 fans hoping for a real action-RPG likely won't be pleased, but as a simple, straightforward slash-'em-up, this stands ably enough on its own.
  • Pros: Fun hack-n-slash, Silly chatter
  • Cons: Uneven difficulty, Minimal customization, Simplistic levels

Sacred 3

Strategy Informer
4 August 2014
  • Conclusion: While we're certainly not starving for Action RPGs these days Sacred 3 does manage to stand out. A poorly-told story with odious voice-acting, crushing linearity, a total lack of customization right down to clothing and levelling upgrades, and an absolute distain for single-player gamers are its...

Calm Down Tom
1 August 2014
  • Summary: It’s a strange thing that sometimes happens. Companies tweak gameplay mechanics and a game goes from being linear to non-linear. Various developers have played around with popular game franchises in the past to see how things would turn out; Namco gave Tekken 3 a beat em up game called Tekken Force...
