This is a fun little game that feels like an arcade game, but with better graphics and controls. Don't expect there to be a complicated skill tree, just action that involves attacking, blocking, and combos.

Well, it's another beatemup...Or is it a hack & slash?

I have this constant internal debate over whether certain games can be considered beatemups or hack&slashes. Both genres use the "belt-scroller" style of level design, both have the standard "move forward, kill enemies, repeat", but there are numerous subtle yet key differences that set them apart. Usually the simple answer is that everyone has weapons in hack & slashers (Konami's TMNT arcade games, Castle Crashers, etc), but uh...hmm. Capcom's Arcade D&D games feature characters with weapons, and I consider that a beatemup. On the other hand, t...

Wait...What? Uh...let's just get on with the review.

Sacred Citadel is a videogame. You kill things, acquire stuff, and complete challenges. I don't recommend this game, but it isn't bad. Out of 10 I'd give it a 4.1. By IGN's standards that might mean SC is a terrible, horrible, no good pile of etc, but eh I think it's ok. The plot is traditional fantasy fare. Big Momma is causing trouble, some mysterious person is seeking artifacts, and there's a bunch of monsters that need a good killin'. I imagine fans of the Sacred series will have a better understanding of what's going on. I played through Sacred 2 on the Xbox 360, but I lost track of the story in the middle of thousands of quests, billions of items, and hundreds of lands/dungeons/universes.

There are four classes to choose from (Warrior, Ranger, Shaman, Mage).
After deciding on your class (which IMO doesn't make a huge difference) you'll set out on a journey through 4 acts with 5 stages apiece. The level-designs are very traditional, but this game mixes it up a bit with mounts, falling objects, and even a little platforming.

The monsters typically consist of um...Grimmocs? Bedellers? Digestya? Covinters? I think I'm just making words up. There are "orcs" with spears, "mutant tribals" with swords, "robots" with shield-thingies, and you get the idea I hope. Whatever they're actually called is irrelevant, because they're mostly fodder for you to make disgusting paste out of. I play a lot of arcade beatemups (& hack & slashers). These tend to be really difficult. The odds aren't fair in the slightest, you get 2 or 3 lives, and enemies can do a lot of damage. Sacred Citadel is pretty much the exact opposite.

This isn't an easy game just because it has RPG elements. One of the standard tactics in a belt-scroller is "herding". You move around to manipulate the enemies, so that they crowd up together. When enemies separate, they tend to surround you, mess up your attacks, and generally ruin your day. It's like some awkward dance with occasional punching. It definitely pays off if you know what you're doing. With SC...all you have to do to herd enemies is X X X Y. This sends them flying to the corner of the screen. Aftwards you can just press X X X and X X X and X X X and you get where I'm going with this? Decisions in this game tend to consist of:

"Do I press X X X down Y and stun them?"
"Do I press X X up Y and juggle them?"
"Do I just press whatever because it doesn't really matter?"

It's nice having RPG elements, it's nice having many attack options, but there's no incentive to doing well because there's no challenge. Even if you choose a supposedly squishy class like the Shaman, you can still take lots of damage, healing items are prevalant, and you can even keep a few healing potions for emergencies. It's not uncommon to play through this game for the first time, and never die. The only aspect where you are liable to fail involves the stage rankings, book-keeper challenges, and certain "don't get hit by XXXX" achievements. All this other stuff really amounts to is a grind, since it requires playing through every stage a handful of times.

Still, while it eventually becomes a boredom-inducing ordeal, Sacred Citadel can be a satisfying in terms of leveling-up, acquiring loot, and gutting monsters by the dozen. If you expect anything more; like a challenge, or some truly compelling game-design, you're bound to be disappointed.

A really great beat 'em up with pretty smooth graphics. The gameplay feels good-ok, artwork and music are beautiful.

The only thing that could've been better, is that the equipment as it is mostly 2 or 3 drops (one of each type -mace,axe,etc...-) that fit the character per 2-3 levels, which feels like there aren't many options to choose from. In addition I didn't really understand why you can't have 2 same 1h weapons equiped both at a time.

Combat mechanics are enjoyable and also is the idea of having potions, which can really make a differense.

I totally recommend this game, and even more if you are going to play it in co-op mode.
Have fun.

Worth about $5

Old/Mid school Style Beat-em Up. Kind of a Capcom Dungeon and Dragons arcade game mashed up with Golden Axe and some Final Fight sprinkled on top, with a great art style.

There are 4 diffrent classes, about 5 diffrent combos/moves to unlock per class, juggle, gound and pound, knockbacks, behind the back attack, elemental weapons, armors, mounts to ride, lots of baddies, and some epic bosses.

It can be a bit botton mashy (like all early to mid 90's beat-em ups) and to make yer class a badass you will have to grind some, it's a fun grind tho. They give you diffrent tasks to complete: no dieing, time limit, and score when you replay levels.

Great 2.5D Hack'n'Slash beat'em up game with beautiful visuals and RPG element pretty much reminds me of the "Golden Axe" series.

Positives:
+ Fun arcadey game
+ Solid frames and beautiful visuals
+ Nice selection and unique characters
+ RPG element feels great

Negatives:
- Playing alone is boring so find someone to play with
- Leveling can be tedious
- The story is nothing blowing ( typical hero story )

Thought:
The game is great if you ever felt bored and want to play something fun well this is what you are looking for but i highly suggest that you look for someone to play with and this game online match making is great so you will not be bored.

I started playing as a warrior alone, but after act 1 I wanted to try co-op with a friend. I tried hunter and he played as warrior and to be honest the game became way more interesting since in two it seems better, more control and well less dying :P

The story is simple, a bad guy is looking for some artefacts that will look like some strange statues and at the end of an act... well he gets them both :) The last act is the battle to stop him destroy the citadel, while the DLC is a different chapter, no idea yet, but I'll buy it for sure :)

The control is simple, easy to remap but since I am not the biggest fan of console control ideas.... well I don't really like the combos and such or the itemization or the management of gear and such but with a friend I managed to finish it and get some nice achievements in the mean time. I can't say that is a bad game just because I don't like the combos idea but the control system seems slower like the one on consoles. The keyboard should be 10-20 times faster than a gamepad but since the game was designed for the slower "minded" people playing on consoles well the control interface will always lag behind the keyboard speed.

Except that, the acts are small, fast places, the mobs are a little too powerfull but managable, while playing in two or more is way better and way more interesting. The game is simple, kill stuff, get some money (way too few for the mobs you kill but well...), buy some gear if you can and do challanges, while focus on dieing as little as possible :P

It takes around 6 hours to finish the four acts but that doesn't mean that you'll get to level 40 (the max level) since at the end of act IV you'll be at best level 35, or at least that was the case for me. How to get from 35 to 40.... well no idea yet.

Remember that this game is a arcade scroller with some RPG parts but with combos and a small number of potions to use, so playing it should be quite easy and enjoyable. Try it alone, try it with friends, I think the 2nd choice will be way better thou :P

And if you like it, well you can always vote my review :P

Basically a flashy Golden Axe style filmstrip side scroll beat um up.

Segmented battle areas, portions of story, rinse repeat.

There are RPG elements with leveling up and distributing points to abilities. Or gain new gear by defeating enemies or purchasing them.

This game feels right at home for me, the story is kind of immature, but I didn't expect more than a reason to go to the right and kill things. It isn't like Golden Axe had a major driving storyline, we just want to push buttons and see bad guys die.

And the satisfaction of earning new levels to your magic is still just as nice.

I think people complaining, were just looking for something deeper. This is right next to Golden Axe, Legend, Knights of the Round, etc.

If any of those names hit home for you, score it on sale. I can't speak for online play, but for 4-player local co-op, this is a good time.

A sidewise beat-em-up game is rarely seen today at least with polished execution like this. Unfortunately the multiplayer component did not work correctly for me with one side showing that the opposite player was no longer playing etc. The game itself has quite a bit of charm and reminds me of castle crashers - unfortunately not the most exciting game in single player. I could go back and revisit this game one day if I feel up for it so I would recommend it to fans of the genre

If you're a fan of old sidescrolling action packed games with some humour, then Sacred Citadel is the game for you.
Along with it's decent graphics and effects for its genre, the soundtrack is on point and enjoyable as well as the combo's you can perform. The levels aren't terribly challenging and you can finish the game solo, so I recommend you accept the challenges in the towns before each level.
I've yet to play in co-op (both local and online) because not a lot of people have this game yet. So buy it, have a gander at each of the classes, run through the game with your favourite one, and then finally meet me in online rooms.
Coles approved.
