    Sacred 2 is a worthy succesor to Sacred.

    Things I liked about the game:
    + its sacred 2
    + nice graphics
    + a fair amount of viable builds / diversity
    + trashing tons of mobs for loot
    + large world, scaling mobs in endgame make it possible to grind your gear in any area
    + tough as nuts highest difficulty

    Neutral noteworthy things:

    - There is a multiplayer, I personally find it quite hard to have fun with this game in multiplayer. Iam not a fan of pvp and questing with friends is hard to coordinate and usually ends in chaos and frustration. Everyone has this one friend that needs 60 minutes to distribute 1 skill point on lvl 5, that friend that listens and reads every tiny bit of every quest. That one friend thats always randomly afk etc.

    Things i didnt like:
    - crashes and the endless search for a fix
    - this asspull atempt of a story 1/10 they tried
    - some builds / mechanic abuse

    All the points the negative reviews list can be easily fixed by the user in the end except for the instability some users have. I personally do crash every 1 or 2 hours but on a bright side this does keep me from playing all day.

    I dont know how people get the idea that an Action RPG/hack and slash needs to define itself with superb story or lore. I like both sacred for their somehow very satisfying way of slaughtering tons of mobs and gettin rad loot. The combat mechanics work flawless for close combat. Ranged combat has some slight issues with terrain sometimes. shots getting blocked by hills, props whatever and some mobs have such a huge movement in their attack animation that they evade shots. Those are little flaws that dont matter too much since sacred is so smooth and fluent in its combat that it doesnt matter if a few shots miss or you misscast your spell out of bounds by accident.

    I dont say its impossible to put a good story into a hack and slay game, I am saying that a hack and slay game can be fun and entertaining even without any story.

    Now a list of issues other user describe and my thoughts:
    - game is too easy / outleveling quest areas: If you are seeking the challenge the game has to offer skip all guides and start your character in silver difficulty. Even if you do every sidequest there is its nearly impossible to outlevel silver before you have done every quest there is. If you happen to stumble upon really broken stuff like the BeeEffGee build just dont do it.

    - buggy quests: yes, there are some quests that dont function well or at all but so what ? there are hundreds of quests and for the density of actual content its impressive how few quests are actually bugged. Also quests do give exciting rewards like set items. In fact with the Bargaining skill at 75 quests are well worth your time in higher difficulties IMO.

    - boring story / lore: yep, lets be honest nobody plays this game for its quality story. If you are interested in a good told story go read a book or play some games that are actually made for that. If you dig deep and actually read the books that drop every now and then you see the effort of immersion or lore and sometimes its even slightly interesting to read. Just because Sacred isnt based on a 100 bands thick story like Warcraft it isnt automatically bad.

    - it doesnt bring the same charm as Sacred (the first one): well nostalgia can be a real pain in the ♥♥♥. I personally like both games. They are similar and I feel like Sacred 2 is in fact the better game concept wise. You have more diversion in your class. And I feel its not so punishing as the first for going trololo and skilling whatever. I however feel the Sacred genes.

    - hard to controll camera: yes the camera can be a nightmare but by fiddeling with the options you can live with it quite easily. Just disable follow camera and collision and you are good to go. Just use the rotation keys to keep the boss centric bossfights so that the boss is north of you and you wont have problems with movement or attacking.

    - progress loss by crashes / corruption: I dont see the problem here. The game has the option to bind save game. Just put it somewhere comfy and hit it every now and then. Never lost more than maybe 10 minutes. I always save after finding an item id like to keep, saveing the game doesnt interrupt the game at all. Atleast for me with the game on a SSD might be different on HDDs. It never ever happened to me to corrupt a savefile. Even if you fear corruption its easy to create a backup every now and then.

    TL:DR Sacred 2 is a good arpg with alot weighting on hack n slash. The story would be better off missing completely than this sorry attempt. Its still a good Sacred and its fun to build and play diverse characters. I can definitively recommend it to somewhat openminded Sacred fans. If you want it to be a Sacred clone with better graphics you are bound to be dissappointed.

    WARNING: Some people have so many issues with this game they cant even get it to launch at all. All I needed to do was making it run as admin, with XP servicepack 3 and the parameters -skipopenal -nocpubinding.

    Such a good game! One of the biggest maps I've ever come across, tons of quests, builds, itemization. Still good after so many years. A lot of games don't feel very good, once they're this old. This is an exception.
    I love all the hacking and the looting. Go get it.

    (before reading my review, my online time is only 34 minutes because i play all my games offline and by myself and only very rarely play multiplayer or in online mode)

    Sacred 2 gold is actually one of the very first games i ever bought on steam and by far at that time the largest in file size! like 12-15GB and i had to install it using a 10GB per month cellular data plan, needless to say it took awhile to get it installed but i am very glad i did. Sacred 2 Gold is a hack and slash action role playing game with a focus on building your own character from a variety of classes and accquiring,using and selling insane amounts of loot from weapons to armor even jewels and everything in between all while being driven ahead by one of the largest asortments of quest that i have seen which will take you all across a massive fantasy landscape populated by never ending enemies. Now while this sounds amazing that is just the base game but this is a combination of all that plus 2 addons the most notable of which is called "fallen angel" which introduces new classes and gives you the option to play as a dark and evil villain choosing to plunge the world into the reign of a eternal dark god! In edition to all of this the overall general feel of Sacred 2 Gold is like that of massive MMO except all for you to enjoy in that reguard completely solo and offline in all of its simulated feelings of splender.

    So with all of the basis covered i am sure this can help you decide if Sacred 2 Gold is a ARPG adventure that you would like to embark upon whether it be on the PS3 version, the Xbox 360 version or the PC version all 3 are the same fantastic game and i guarantee you will not regret your time once you start looting and questing!

    it would go on sale right after i bought it.


    this is important. dont play temple guardian. he looks dumb, his armor looks dumb, his skills are dumb. everything about him is dumb. especially the way he runs/walks. looks like hes got a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ diaper.

    anyways. its fun, its got a different skill progression that you dont see in any other game, the combat is about what you would expect from isometric games. spells and techs are cool to watch. the world is open to you from the get go. as in their are no borders from where you can or can not go. beyond the edge of the map that is. the quests are funny to read and there are a lot of puns an jokes. the humor is there, the combat is there, the progression is there. To be completely fair. you can definitely tell within 2 hours if youll enjoy the game beyond that. so returning is an option.

    odds are if youre even looking at this youre interested in the game. i assure you its solid. try it.

    Personal opinion: Get this game instead of Sacred 3 if you're looking for an Action RPG!

    My first impression playing this game back in 2010 was pretty special. I started a Dryad (hey, they looked hot and I love Druids) and watched the fairly epic cinematic, after which I was placed on a beach with a kind of a mentor beside me. I guess the gods didn't smile upon him on that day though, because somehow I ended up having to tutor myself. First thing I noticed when gaining control was the graphics. One word. Wow. They are incredible, and the attention to detail is pretty much un-parallelled. Leaves being side swept, a little bird making his nest - hundreds of small things that leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Even now in 2014, it still looks great.

    I still have that Dryad - but I specced her so badly that she is broken beyond repair. I highly recommend using the Sacred 2 Wiki for help with builds. There is no respec option, and if you find yourself wanting to play it all the way to Niob, your spec pretty much needs to be perfect.

    The sound is good as well, although the voice acting is bad. Not terribad but bad enough that you treasure the fact that only the main quests have voiced dialogue.

    Moving on; most of the classes in the game are innovative and fresh. Whoever saw an ancient Egyptian-inspired Anubis-like robot thingie before as a class? Packing an alien blaster along with his hammer no less. Very fresh, very fun. You diversify a bit by choosing a god and one of two campaigns (good or evil), which adds a good deal of replayability. Rather annoyed by the fact that you can't select gender for the classes though. Some years ago I never touched any female class, for some reason. Thankfully I outgrew it, or I would have missed out on half of this game.

    The story is fairly weak, but the focus doesn't really lie there either, as it gives you hundreds of side quests left and right. In fact there are so many, I find myself skipping half of them. Many of them are kind of like MMO quests in a sense. Very generic; a silly story behind it and mediocre rewards. But it works, somehow. In one early side quest though, you are pitted against the game's first boss. This was a pleasant surprise - as once you engage a boss monster, the camera centers on the boss and the game spits out some cool music. He took a serious pounding too, so it was a good moment.

    The map is gigantic; as far as I know it has the biggest world in an action RPG, ever. I have still not explored everything after well over 100 hours of play (played it on a disc version most of the time), and there are several optional bosses where you can see how good (or bad) your build is. Bosses can be incredibly punishing, but they are also a lot of fun. Keep your thumb on the spacebar.

    The difficulty level when playing Bronze is extremely easy the first 2-3 hours. I considered re-starting several times and selecting Silver instead. But it's gotten more challenging. This really depends on the class and spec you want to play. I have one character in Platinum; a Seraphim, and I still find the class a lot of fun. I have chosen to spec her both with Sword / Shield and Ranged (for BeeEffGee). This'll likely hurt me quite a bit if I reach Niob, but for now it works well. I like being able to change things up now and then.

    Multiplayer is dead, unfortunately. Seems Ascaron went and got themselves bankrupt, and was forced to shut down their US servers. EU servers still worked when I started playing it back in 2010, but I believe they are shut down as well.

    All in all though, great game. Sort of a diamond in the rough but if you can see past some bugs, crashes and general hiccups, you may find yourself in love with this game, like me. I've played it for about 120 hours; I am on my third version of the game now, and after experiencing just one in-game crash in 14 hours of playing, I can finally, after many years, recommend this game. On the previous versions it probably crashed between 2-300 times in 100 hours of playing.

    Since I wrote the review the game has crashed 7 times in 28 hours of play. Still not too bad, considering I've had PhysX enabled all that time.

    I can't get his to run on my rig. Problem with the physics driver on my video card, it needs an older driver. From what I can tell looking online, other people have managed to get around the problem, but it's just beyond my capabilities.

    I've played it at a friend's and will reccomend the game, but want people to know that there are issues they might have to overcome.

    One of the best ARPGs on PC

    if you have problems with the game go to sacred 2 go to its file location and go to system should look like this

    E:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold\system

    set s2gs.exe to compatibility mode for windows vista


    set sacred2.exe to compatibility mode for windows xp

    if you still have problems go back and go to the redist folder and download the DirectX, Physx and VC drivers which are in each of those three folders.
