Summary: This is an exceptionally ambition game that was released with too many bugs, but since the patch it runs great and looks good. The open world environment doesn't lag on the PS3, though there are some issues with loading when entering or leaving a portal or cavern (both require a loading screen). The only really disappointing thing about this game is that the control scheme is not very intuitive and aiming is difficult for anything but area of effect spells.
Summary: The game is crippled by a terrible camera angle and awkward control scheme. Game mechanics aren't really explained in any detail, and so many of the game components are glitchy and poorly executed. The overall design of the UI is a mess, and far too busy to be accessible. Using the map can be difficult at times, and after questing for about 45 minutes I had a splitting headache due to the viewing angles and map navigation.
They should have called it Sacred 2: Vermin Slayer

Summary: Without attempting to be too hyperbolic, I have to say that this game is without a doubt one of the more puzzling entries into the hack n slash genre. Sometimes you just want a game that you can turn on and run around in with your buds, laying low countless legions of... rats? Sheep? Rabbits?? Well if that's what does it for you, you get all that and more! More rats I mean. Oh yes! More rats than you will want to shake a stick at. Or a broadsword for that matter!
Summary: I actually own two copies of Sacred 2, that is how much I loved the first game. I own the PC version and PS3 version but for a reason. The PC version (I am on Vista x64) just wouldn't run right for me no matter what drivers I used, vista patching etc. It has been the only PC game I own that ever gave me nonstop problems and I wasn't about to build a new PC just to play one game :P So I purchased this for PS3 to be able to just sit back and enjoy (I purchased this May...
Summary: Bought it to try out a new RPG. This game doesn't really compete with other top games that are coming out, as far as graphics and character control go. Still, it's entertaining once you figure out what you are actually doing in the game.
Decent single player but poor local/couch co-op gameplay

Summary: I like how there are many different races/classes to choose from, the random loot and the great number of ways to customize the characters. Would be nice if the characters can jump. However, the local multiplayer/co-op gameplay design has a major flaw with the lack of zoom, which means that you are stuck in an orbital view from all the way up. The characters and details on the screen are extremely small and unplayable.
Summary: I'm used to PC games so I don't know if I'm best to review this game. Just seems very unpolished and lacking a lot of features. There are even times with the PS3 is struggling to render the graphics.
Summary: Decent game, but don't expect it to keep your attention past the third day. Typical hack and slash. I like the idea of getting mounts but it's either pay an obscene amount for a horse early or wait till level 15 for the character specific one- not cool. Camera controls are horrible to get used to as well.
Summary: When I was a kid before all the internet connected consoles I would always play co-op games with my friends huddled up next to a tiny tv until the early morning hours. I'm always on the lookout for co-op games I can play online to try and recapture that magic. And while Sacred 2 is not the best Diablo-style dungeon grinding game it still does an adequate job of representing the genre.
Summary: have not played it for long, only for about 30 minutes, the graphics are a bit below expectation, i wanted sort of an RPG or MM ... so this is basically it, have not played online yet, .... a bit dissapointed about the way of overlooking the character from top looks.. a bit weird. ... so far nothing outstandingly extraordinary about the game, the story seems ok as well it might change once i play more ..
