Not Very Exciting
I played this with my girlfriend (who likes classic beat-em-ups such as Streets of Rage 2) and after Act 1's boss we said, "Ok let's keep playing!"
But as we played, our enthusiasm kept dropping slowly. There wasn't really much to the game. There are only 4 acts and our characters became so over-powered by the end of the game that we just wanted to get it over with. We didn't even use the special, power enhancing crystals once.
are nice but sometimes I lost my character in some chaotic battles. The Act 1 boss was the only unique fight in the entire game (except MAYBE the last boss, but that's pushing it).
was fine (some of it sounding like Golden Axe at times)
needed more "umph" to make me feel like my hits were doing any damage. The sound could have helped make the game more exciting if they put more effort into it.
were easy but the game can be beaten with one simple attack combo for the entire time and then the "special move" saved for boss fights.
As of this writing the game sells for $15 (before sale discounts) and I'd have to say I'd pay at most half that price for Sacred Citadel if you have run out of beat=em-ups to play.
