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: Ascaron's Sacred 2 , a prequel to the 2004 release Sacred , emerged on PCs in the Fall of 2008, to mediocre reviews. After several lengthy delays, Sacred 2 has now successfully jumped the gap and entered the console realm.
Excerpt: Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is a fantasy RPG that focuses more on massive combats, a huge world to explore and customizing your character than on the story. You can play a solo game or get another player to join you on your PS3 or Xbox 360, or three players can play with you over the Internet.
Summary: Hack-and-slash role-playing games have long been better fits on the PC than they have been on consoles. There have been exceptions to that rule of course, and now Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is making another appeal for genre fans to kick the mouse to the curb.
Pros: Solid action RPG game design, Lots of quests, Good variety of enemies and monsters, Gorgeous visuals and offbeat audio
Cons: World map is massive and convoluted, Poorly developed main plot
Summary: Welcome to Ancaria home of T-Energy and dungeon running dreams. If collecting loot, grinding levels and completing quests is your cup of tea, then you are going to be enjoying a couple hundred hours running around this rather colourful and open world.
Pros: Additive gameplay, Fun online modes, Plenty of things to do
Cons: A few bugs, Online Lobby issues, No advanced tutorials
