Sacred Citadel trys to pluck every single mechanics from the classic side-scrolling fighters that may have played and loved: Golden Axe, Double Dragon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and tries to intertwines these mechanics with fun and exciting RPG elements in a simple yet elegant visual style more suitable to modern day. On the side note im not going to blabber your head off for this indie game review and I'll just list some cons n pros.

Pros:
Simple, Elegant, Stylish Interface and Aesthetic
Solid Pacing to Levels
Overall Challenge
Challenging Boss Fights Minus the DLC
Interesting RPG elements
Great visual effects
Basic Button-Combo System

Cons:
Online Co-Op Needs Work
Was only able to play with my friends not entirely sure if it was because nobody plays this anymore
Dull Orc Enemies
Combat may get stale after you learn the stun combo

Sumary:
Would i reccommend the game YES, BUT not at this price..maybe 5$ or so based on how much content was put into it.
IF you like easy achievments % then by all means this is the game for you if you dont mind spending some dinero for the DLC to reach max level.

Okay so where should I start..
Let's start with the negative stuff cause that's usually what people look at anyway.
The game has a few flaws that I cannot get over:
-Depth Perception Issues. Not only is it often so, that you're being attacked by enemies that you cannot attack because you're not in the same depth, but it's also hard to tell which depth they're in at all, leading to some frustration from time to time. Also some items might sometimes drop in a depth that you cannot even reach.
-It's not hard. Now you might say this is very relative, but for me, these kinds of games is about growing in power, since you level and acquire new gear, so that you may overcome harder challenges. This point is especially important since your experience & gold is saved, even if you die, so you can just keep doing the same thing til' you get past it. Sure, you might die here there once or twice, but we beat every level in the first try and overall found the game to be too easy. Even on the last boss we made it without grinding a single level twice and we didn't even dodge most of his attacks.
-The game is very short. A little over 5 hours of gameplay was enough to beat the entire game with one class, and that's taking into account idling in the menu probably about 30 minutes and restarting it due to bugs like being unable to move or even just crashes.
-Tanky monsters. When I'm saying that I'm not talking about the bosses, the bosses are fine. But this is something I see very often in games. Instead of making the monsters challenging enough, you make them very tanky, so that it'll still take time to take them down. It's not fun, it's just repetitive and tedious.
-Constant knockback. You're constantly being knockbacked, there's really nothing to explain here, you'll spend at least about 30% of your time in combat lying on the ground.

Those are the main points for me that are bad. But here's the good ones.
-Story. It's definitely not that great of a story, but it's somewhat humorous and you want to find out what happens, so I have no complaints, the story did what it was supposed to do, it made me want to play on.
-Gear, I felt the excitement for getting a better weapon/armor. That's at least more than what many other games do.
-Pretty fun multiplayer. Since you're constantly getting knockbacked, mashing buttons, filling up the screen with you power attacks or getting thrown around and ending up in bad positions, it's pretty fun to play co-op in it. As always it's more fun to play with friends.
-Music. The music was not that kind of music that got stuck in your head or something you'll sing/dig along to, but it was decent, and I have no complaints about it either.
-Graphics. The graphic design is nice and overall I enjoyed going through the world, especially paying attention to the background scenery at times.

Overall I must say this is a pretty mediocre game from a game design perspective, but it was decent entertainment for the 5 hours I played it. Do I consider it to be worth 10 euros though? No.

A nice arcade hack-n-slash.
Feels like a well-done arcade game I would play when I was a kid at the mall.

Pros:
----------------
1) Responsive controls, fluid animations and satisfying hack-n-slash action.

2) Story is supposedly tied to Sacred/Sacred 2 story line, but make no mistake, this is not an RPG.
It's an arcade, side scrolling hack-n-slash, no more, no less.

3) You do have some small improvement choices.
Between levels you can enter a town and purchase new weapons (Better weapons seem to drop in levels than what I find in the stores), new armor and potions to increase your health, rage and powers.

4) You can choose between four different classes that are standard fare for most RPG's.
Warrior, Ranger, Wizard and Shaman are the only choices I believe.
However, there is very lite character development included in the form of distributing two points per increase to one of four attributes, you can also add limited-time crystals which give you higher stats for about 10 minutes.
One unique feature is while in town you can place a bet with an NPC as to how well you will do on your next mission.
For example, I can bet 100 coins that next level I won't die, or will finish the level in record time.

5) Some multi-player/coop features included if you care about such.

Gripes:
----------------
1) Nowhere to sell loot.
After a while, I had 20 something swords way below my level and no way to sell them or even get rid of them other than swapping one out for another.
Granted, I have not progressed too far into the game, but it seems like if the feature to sell items was there I would have already found it in town.
If I discover otherwise I'll modify my review.

2) Pointless powers and attribute bonuses.
After leveling my character, I am hard pressed to see any difference in my abilities.
The temp restriction of the crystals and potions make working with them a pain and a money sink that really doesn't help.
Learning how to play skillfully and investing in better gear will go a long way to being better at this game, rather than relying on buffs.

3) By default the game could not go higher than 1600x900 resolution.
This was easily fixed by changing the resolution line in renderconfig.txt in the My Documents/Sacred Citadel folder.
I felt this simple fix should have been caught by the developer, and if not, fixed easily enough through a small patch.
People who are not comfortable modifying game files might feel hesitant to fix this themselves.

4) Very general, bland story without much emotion or drive to make you care about the story or the characters.
I assume if you play the Sacred series there might be some useful canon here, but I don't think it would be much.
But I honestly didn't really know why I was killing the trolls/orcs and so on until I made myself read/listen to the small amount of back-story.

5) Other than choosing your class, there is no character customization as far as appearances go.
You get what you get and you do not alter it as you go.
My level 10 ranger looks just like my level 1 did, only with some better weapons.

Thoughts
----------------
I give this a general 6 out of 10.
A touch above-average but not by much.
If it's cheap and you would like a mindless hack/slash game that will hold you for 30 minutes to an hour at a time,
then I say go for it, just don't go expecting a decent story, choices or mind blowing loot.

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.

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.

You walk around and beat up stuff. Occasionally you ride an animal. So I guess it's like a modern-day Golden Axe.

There are some light RPG mechanics to upgrade your loot and abilities, but by no means is it a deep or complex game. You might get bored with it if you try to marathon it all at once, but the levels are short, so if have 10-15 minutes to kill and enjoy old-school beat-em-up style games, playing one or two levels at a time may be a better approach. I played it that way and had a great time.

I really loved the aesthetics of this game, although the gameplay itself leaves much, MUCH to be desired. You can get through most enemies by mashing the main attack (which stunlocks them every time) so you barely need to touch the glitzier heavy attacks and combos-honestly waiting to power them up without getting hit only makes the game slightly harder. If you DO use them though they're pretty fun to watch (I once accidentally turned a group of monsters into chickens. NICE). Since every stage allows you to move up/down you can miss enemies that appear to be right in front of you, which is annoying but thankfully not as often as you'd think. Overall fun for what it is. I've only played the single player campaign and can only imagine that the multiplayer modes would be much more entertaining. The voice acting is excellent, the writing is good enough to carry the barely existent plot and the graphics look great.

Having played a little over an hour I must say I like the game visuals and gameplay concept, however the control scheme is very difficult to get the hang of. I beleive this game just begs for a joystick control scheme. The control scheme results in eary frustation in the game and makes progrssion very difficult as you die quite often.

I really enjoyed this game. Best played with a friend, but fun alone as well. It's not the greatest sidescrolling beat 'em up created, but it's just fun. Wait for a sale and have some fun with a friend.

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.

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, fun game, but sometimes when I'm trying to play online with friends the game glitches and I cannot move, or they cannot move. It's super frustrating, especially in extreme levels where the fighting starts almost immediately. As soon as this is fixed, I'll have no problems with it.

This game is amazing! I love the artwork/graphics, and the gameplay is very fluid and fun. The menu music is probably some of the best I've heard. You'd be a sucker to miss out on it while it's on sale :)

Awesome fun playing with a group of mates...This game takes you through a crazy and quirky storyline of side scroller co-op action. The class choices are well varied and equally as fun to play as the next, with unlockable skills and weapons unique to each character's style. If beat-em-up, hack-n-slash action is your thing, and you enjoy kicking back with mates while you bash and slash your way through hordes of enemies and challenging boss fights, then I highly reccomend this game :D

The game that's distributed 20 years after it's mere existence would matter anything. We saw enough Golden Axe clones in the SNES era and this isn't so much a huge step forward.
