Excerpt: To say that Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is big would be a “big” understatement. Its world is a huge 22 square miles, its quests number in the hundreds and it will take a significant amount of time to see everything that its universe, Ancaria, has to offer.

Excerpt: Sacred 2’s opening video tries its damnedest to be cool. But it sort’ve kicks itself in the nuts along the way. It begins with an old man whose eyes are sewn shut and he’s reading a book. Yes, that’s right. A man who can’t see is reading a book.
Excerpt: I have to say, without a doubt the worst aspect of this generation has so far been the utter lack of quality RPGs, both the Western kind and Japanese kind.

Excerpt: Dungeon crawlers are something of a rare breed these days, but that didn't stop German studio Ascaron from pumping out a follow-up to 2004's Sacred. An action-RPG originally conceived for the PC, Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is aiming to amass a new set of converts on the consoles.
