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. The list of traditional RPGs available for the PlayStation 3 is slim to none, and the future doesn't hold much in store, aside from a game or two. With that said, games like Sacred 2, while not traditional, do appease a number of RPG fans, even if it's for a short time.
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. But if uninspired gameplay and a severely unpolished exterior are fearful premonitions to look out for, then take heed: this sloppy port provides a less-than-heavenly experience.
