    This is my favorite action role playing game! A huge map to explore with various landscapes and many hidden places. There are 7 different classes with different ways to skill. But the most addictive part for me is the hunt for massive loot... set armors, unique weapons and random roled rare items.
    But its highly recommended to install the latest Community Patch. It brings more content and is fixing some of never solved bugs by the bankrupt vendor.
    Negative points are tricky camera handling and the very instable source code. Its often crashes because of memory leak.
    Multiplayer is only possible with LAN mode. If you want to play online use VPN tools like Tunngle.

    If you like ARPG's like Diablo combined with a large open world so go for it!

    8.5 of 10 points!

    Sacred 2 gold is an amazing game. If you purchase t his game, you should make sure that you search for, and download the community patch. You can also download a community addon patch, and there are some other mods out there. I'd also highly recommend taking a look at the sacred 2 characters, their skills, and possibly some guides on how to build them. You can play through with any character in this game, but if you build them wrong, you will pay for it at higher difficulty levels.

    This is a very good action RPG/Hack N Slash. It is a huge, beautiful, open ended world. The graphics are incredible if you turn the settings to maximum. The world is a living breathing world, like other reviewers have said, there are lots of small things like birds building nests, people talking to each other in towns, etc in the game that make it feel alive. If you have a Nvidia card with physx (however it is spelled), leaves will blow around and react to your spells. This happens in all environments like in dungeons.

    Ignore the warning about not being optimized for WIndows 7 PCs. IF you google Sacred 2 crashing windows PC, you'll get a guide on how to create a shortcut that has a few command line options enabled, while also changing the shortcut to run the game in windows xp SP3 compatibility mode. If you do that you should be fine. The game also frequently auto saves when you teleport or change areas, so in the even of a crash, just load the game back up and you'll be right where you left off.
    If you have played this game on a console and are wondering if its worth purchasing on the PC, the answer is yes. The expansion pack is included in this PC version, and with the community patch you can unlock Christmas island. You also get a carrier imp included with the gold package which helps store extra inventory.

    If you download Tunngle beta (Free) you can play this with your friends CO-Op.

    Endless loot, endless enemies, endless hack n slash action RPG adventure goodness. What are you waiting for!

    A good game for fans of Diablo or the original Sacred. I can't say it does a great job of drawing you into the story, but there are a lot of fun things about the gameplay nonetheless with character classes you aren't likely to find anywhere else (like a Seraphim or Anubis) and the ability to create skill combos, as well as a good variety of weapons including some unique ones like energy pistols along with the typical medieval sorts. Tons of quests, monsters, and loot will keep you occupied for hours.

    When I first saw this, I lost my marbles and was looking for Sacred 1 so I didn't have to watch hours of video to get through the story. As far as I know, this is a standalone title.

    The first thing I noticed about the game was that despite everything it represents visually, the game had no remote support, thankfully, a little fooling around with the remote and some trial and error and I have it in good with the controller, The game came off as a bards tale, just because of the annoying camera, and this is hindered even moreso by dodgy mouse controls, in rare occasions you'll find yourself tapping at one stair to get out of a bad see through stairwel. After fiddling with the camera angles a bit and tweaking the zoom I realized this game is absolutely magnificent.

    Unlike most looting games, this one takes the form of every one of them in a way that gives you a morrowind feeling but all of the time, whether it's a lucky store visit or another cave run your eyes are always oopen for that rare grab that'll make you drop your inventory in front of enemies just to get the item for sure. The save anywhere do anything aspect really shines when you realize you have to take a long trek again and have to do a lot of walking.

    I only have about 9 hours in, so I don't have too much of an opinion but I'm pretty much camping in the level 3-5 area completing all of the quests. A big problem I may face later in the game is having that rare level 2 item that's way better than the items beyond. But I'm almost certain this game will have a very nice way to go about it.

    If the shared box works as I would hope, you may be able to share items across all saves, making the game progress in a fairly breezy yet new way, and since you get drops of all races from the game, you may be able to start a more serious difficulty after you get rick rolled about how easy bronze is feeling.

    I've had one bad encounter with an ally npc... he ran in the middle of a mob with a bow... I was so mad. However no other npc has behaved that way, the npcs that don't fight actually run away and know very well and how to stay back I could sit in the inventory menu in deep thought while trolls are running amok and the npc will be seen crossing the screen staying away from enemies. It's a very nice sight.

    For me, This game is a deliverance. You get that mmo feel of being strong and having loads of opportunities to make armor builds with great purpose, you have gear that differs by race that drop often and are sold on an average occasion, characters that look really sharp and have cheesy one liners that go great with the enemies, who have their own. and an all around experience that will go from bards tale to a point and click mmo just by changing the camera.

    Edit: After about two more days I decided to change the difficulty and wanted to flip out. All of the quests were reset but my stuff was still intact, map data was intact but no portals were active. I went back to bronze, and all of the data returned. In my opinion, you should use one data to complete the story and another to enjoy the quests, This feature is probably the best I have seen, thougrh the repetitiveness will probably make you sick, this is one of those games that even when you get finished... Lol in about 4 months, youre not really finished. I have 4 days of game time in bronze and i still have about 14 circles in the large city just sitting there. And I probably wont address them until I've caught up in silver, So I can speed through bronze. This is one of those games that would make you gain hope in an era of games just because of the sheer value it gives to you. Though it is not the era, It is only this game.

    In another light, the way that the quests are displayed will bring out the completionist in anyone... seeing failed red circles in select spots bombarded with green is sort of depressing, as well as a log book that has 2 red Xs among chapters of pure green. So if you do a quest, make it count and don't mess up if that sort of thing bothers you. Since there are two datas, (and possaibly more) You should do well to take at least one of them seriously in an attempt to wow someone with a pure green quest map.

    I would reccomend it it anyone who needs a game. If they like story they can do quests, if they like a challenge, tell them to just run ahead. I'm sure everyone has paid much more for way less in this day and age. And I would hope people would want a game they would want to play after they beat it, and this game emphasizes on concepts that make you okay with playing it again. Even if it's just to be powerful and slap monsters around for a chance at seeing an item with beast stats.

    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.
