It's much better use of both your time and money to track down a copy of Sacred 1.
I had only heard bad things about this game and most of them are true.
It's very boring with none of the charm the first game had. I would of loved a "lazy" reuse of the last game's engine sequel, atleast that would be better than this.
Most of the quest are the same old "go here, kill this" quests and it controlls like it was programed for someone with 6 fingers on each hand. Switching abilities is a pain and is hard to do in combat.
The characters are stereotypes of the ones in the first game, that were stereotypes to begin with, with a completly pointless customisation slider that just makes them all look the same. Not that it matters beacuse to be able to see more that 2m in any direction requires the screen to be fully zoomed out.
The map looks like someone lent on the brightness way too much and forgot what "open world" means. Sacred ! was this world slowly falling in (and part of) hell, so very dark. Also it might look open but it's just a series of paths boxed in by invisible walls with little to nothing worth discovering in it.
Basically it is "Baby's first Vanilla Fantasy Land",
"Tired of getting lost in a open 2d world?"
"Try our quest trail and fast travel systems to totally remove all sense of exploration or acomplishment."
"Plus we've made the whole map boring and lifeless so you can be prepaired to know what real life is like."
and so on.
Compaired to the first game it's bad, as a game on it's own, it's worse.
Spend the $20 on a better fantasy game, there's a ton of them out there for much less.
I'm happy to of got this on sale, even then it was still a rip-off.
