    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!

    Longevity. An incredibly huge map, which would take one hours to come close to uncovering, aswell as being a free roaming game(Thus, you won't be confined to a specific route).
    An excellent variation & customisation in armour and weapons.
    More than 200 levels for each character to grind, along with skills and attributes that make each and every character Unique.
    The difficulty level can be raised to such a standard, if one dies, it means you DIE and will not be able to play the character any more.
    Very unofrgiving, Which makes surviving so incredibly sweet.

    Overall, 9/10.

    There's only one thing I don't like about this, Not being able to see more. A limited viewing range. Somewhat of a half arsed camera. Though, That's just me.

    Anyone else should give this a 10/10.

    There is endless stuff to do, quests everywhere, loot everywhere, levels up and powers and BLIND GUARDIAN god I love this game.

    You need to set compatibility settings. So go to
    \Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold\system
    Then right click Sacred2.exe and click compatibility.
    Select Windows XP Service Pack 3 compatibility settings
    Check "Run this program as an administrator"
    Apply then restart your computer. Easy Peasy.

    So a friend recommended this game to me while, by chance, he noticed it was 80% off. Never bought a better 5$ game. I am not, or have ever been, a big fan of Diablo style games. I just kind of missed that train. But this game broke my pre-concieved ideas about it in just the first few hours.

    The world is pretty rich and just when I thought I was making progress on the map, I discovered I had only uncovered a dot of it. Every level, while comes slower than my personal taste, gives back benefits you can see each time, rather than a ton of levels all the time with hardly anything to show for each one. Another one of the games strong points is customization. Oh man the customization. It's not as intimidating as 'Path of Exile' (a Diablo-style game I tried), though a tad confusing at first. Even with reading up I still had that "trash first character" with my points being in places that were less than helpful. The 'runes' you get to increase your skills are pretty abundant as well, but not always with the ones you need, which can be solved by trading in 1-4 runes of any kind to pick the one you want, increasing your power at a good pace (for a small fee). Combine all that with a rich world, much like Skyrim, open and with entirely too much to do, with so much exploring to do, and you've got a game that will have your style of play, with the story and pacing that you want.

    However the game's not perfect. Some annoying things like having to drop items and pick them back up to stack them, certain moves having a hard time targeting an enemy making you dance in place until you find that sweet spot, and not having a very clear chart of where your stats are coming from (though it does list which ones you have, just not if it's on your gear, temporary effect, etc). But if you aren't terribly anal about little bumps in the road, it's a great game to buy.

    8.5/10, just a step bellow 9 for the minor issues.

    9.9/10 A HUGE world with quirky comedy, killer combat and EPIC quests. Detailed, deep, min/max-ing doable but not necessary. This is "The Skyrim" of Hack 'n Slash games. Champions of Norrath on steroids. FAR better than Diablo 2 and 3 in my opinion. For $20 it is a STEAL. Love it. I took .1 points off for crashing 3 times in 350 hours.

    Also I bought a new rig for this game because the GPU requirements were too much for my 2.4Ghz I3/ 9800GT gpu.

    I am running a 3.4ghz I-9 and the newish Nvidia GTX 750ti EVGA -OC- SC. All settings CRANKED with an HD resolutions pack and never dips below 60FPS.

    Best $1400 I have ever spent, this game is gorgeous when you can use all of the avaiable graphics.

    Just buy it and play it and love it.

    P.S. Sacred 3 was an insult to ALL gamers and should have NEVER been made !!!

    I know my current playtime SEEMS small, but the truth is I played the ♥♥♥♥ out of Sacred 2 Gold on a copy before it was released on Steam. I played through the entirety of the vanilla game, over 60 hours, and let me tell you, I loved every single minute of it.

    This is hands down the absolute BEST hack n slash rpg I've ever played. The graphics are smooth, crisp and well made, the combat is tight, the skill and combat art system is engaging and rewarding, there are literally THOUSANDS of quests to complete, monsters to slay, and loot to acquire, and there's a surprising amount of good, Larian-style humor here and there. Did I mention that the world is MASSIVE, likely TWICE the size of the original Sacred, Undeworld included?

    Oh yeah, and the fan community is one of the best I've seen. It is incredibly helpful and eager to help new players ease into the game.

    Speaking of which, let me end on a PSA. If you end up buying this, DOWNLOAD THE COMMUNITY PATCH. Not only does it fix a multitude of bugs, but it also adds a TON of new content to a game already full of it, such as new items, new quests, and new enemies to fight!

    Got Sacred 2 on sale 75% off. Thought it was going to be just another RPG. I was wrong, after playing a few hours I must say that this game really surprised me. Hack and Slash action. Countless diversity of enemies. Dungeon crawling. Tons of Loot. An imense world to explore. I am 43 hours in and haven't seen 30% of the game map yet. The replayability is of value due to classes, skills and attributes in each character, that will make you want to try it out.
    The graphics are Ok, there is no-indepth story. This is not the Elder Scrolls. Besides that it is fun as hell. 4 player Co-Operative its very nice to play with your friends. Recommended.

    This game is fun and bad ♥♥♥, but STEAM should tell people that the servers are down, what a joke. Guess they just want to make sure they get paid even if its selling games that are unsupported, Iv seen them selling alot of games lately with special edition releases with extra multiplayer maps, but the problem is YOU CANT PLAY THEM BECAUSE THE SERVERS ARE SHUT DOWN!!! If they want to sell the games they might as well host some servers for the game since we are paying for it. But all they say is OPPPS To late we already got your money!

    Sacred 2 is an open world hack-n-slash RPG. While there are many games like that this one does it well. The game does not take itself seriously, first off. A lot of things you will come across try to wiggle a joke or a smile into it, though not to the point of it being immature... it just does a good job of letting you know its a game, if that makes sense.

    Its an open world so you can go [mostly] any place pretty much anytime. You are not bound to the regions. There is no level locking. Enemies will generally scale to you but there are indeed regions where you need to have serious gear and have a decent build to take them on.

    The other aspect of the game, which is my favorite, is its size. This game is 22 square ♥♥♥♥ing miles. Even the large area 'in the mountains' can be accessed by a kinda hidden portal. To put this in terms most gamers can understand: the world is about 5% larger then Skyrim. On top of that you don't move like a dart. This may seem daunting, but each location is PACKED with just tons of hand placed props. It creates a world that looks and feels alive. Tons of easter eggs. Tons of hidden loot caches. Tons of things to explore and see over 12 areas ... including 500 quests.

    Ya... lots of quests. Nothing very engaging, and if you take too many (which is easy) you can start to not remeber the details of the quest/ chain clearly. But I find the strong points of the game to be exploration, combat, loot, and character building. The combat is simple to learn and fairly simple to master. But somehow its just so flippin rewarding. The monsters you fight are well done and there's just so so many different kinds... I don't mean black wolf/ blue wolf. I mean detailed completely different. So that adds to the fun element of exploration. And bosses are exceptionally tough!

    On max settings with physics on high this game is PRETTY. And its amusing. And kinda addictive. But it feels laid back in a way somehow.


    Now outta the box this game is buggy. The company who made it went under, so there are no online official servers or future patch support. HOWEVER! the community of super smart loyal geek fans created a community patch that fixed crashing, memory leaks, and overall stability. It adds new weapons, armor, item sets, and even quests. It does a few more things like always make enemies scale to your level (before there was a min/ max level enemies had... now everything is your level or higher!). If you buy this game then find the community patch. Its essential.

    You can play online LAN via a program that is free and simple to use: Tungle. There's not a HUGE community that plays active 24-7 but you can host a server for your friends or join up to play with some friends you didn't know you had!

    The other downside to the game is that if you wanna play on hardest setting (eventually) your build is essential. On easier settings (where you have to start every character) its hard to mess up a build. But as you level and start on higher difficulty tiers... ya, you can get squished easy. Why this is a downside is because you cannot respec your build. All skill points, attribute points, even combat art runes you use cannot be exchanged. I did a bit of digging and was able to find a caharacter editor. So if I get screwed later I can switch around my skill points. Its that or re-do 100 hours ^_^

    The last bit is the camera and movement keys... W and S move forward and back but A and D turn you. This can't be changed to FPS-like controls. Camera is top-down but you can zoom in a bit behind your character and look around. You attack where you click/ mouse direction. Was a little different for me and hard to get used to. Also the default camera angle is crap. You may wanna use google to change some settings in an ini file.


    So despite the lack of new content for Sacred 2 its a sound game with TONS to do over 22 square miles and multiple difficulty settings. Randomly made loot... and tons of it! This is an RPG where its a lotta fun to both level up and spend time looking over gear to tweak your build. No official servers but LAN co-op is indeed fun still. But its shining achivement is the amount of detail put into every place.

    If you like huge long game worlds, loot, and action RPGs that are not too serious I would encourage you to buy this. A $20 price tag IS a bit much so wait for a sale. The game performs its best once a few tweaks (listed above) are applied.

    4.7/ 5 ...nearly perfect! I just wish there were more combat spells per each character class and a way to change item appearance.

    I love RPGs. In fact, I live for them. More open world, the better. I enjoy involved locales, scenic vistas, random quests which are not part of the main quest.

    Sacred 2 has all of these things. As well as a complicated, involved character-building system, allowing you to customize your class from top to bottom. It's an ARPG, which involves more hack and slash than story, and I think that's a better side of "adventure" than long, drawn out speeches.

    That being said, I didn't find this game entertaining. Don't get me wrong, the game has all of these things. In spades. There's more packed into this game than the last four or five I've played. And the control scheme and game play is almost identical to one of my old favorites, the original Dungeon Siege, as well as NWN1.

    I just felt that as of the beginning, there was no real motivation aside from "level" and "loot" which takes me to the next region. I'm not talking themepark handholding. There are some bad mechanics at play here; like outleveling content and quests far before you've finished even a third of them. I'm still killing critters about 2-3 levels below me, forcing me to just walk off from 5 active quests to get into something a bit more challenging.

    Secondarily, the "dungeon crawling" wasn't really done with anything interesting in most of the dungeons. Very few traps, no real reason to be there, just lots of slaughter and walking bags of XP and treasure. There was very little lore involved, so it's not like you're in "The Chaves of Chaos" or something, you're just in "RandomCave4332". There is some good humor here and there, and I can tell PnP players made this game. But aside from the few grave stones and a random floaty message, there's just.. something missing from these areas to make me WANT to explore them.

    I'll probably come back to this in time and re-evaluate, but my initial 8 hours leaves me sort of wanting a reason (aside from the 1 minute cutscene at the beginning of the game) with what I'm doing, the places I'm visiting. Dungeon Siege sort of left you with a sense of wonder at seeing the lost dwarven caverns, crawling through the swamps of sadness or whatever.

    This game is far more open world than most ARPGs, but has far less personality than many I've played. This is probably sacrilege to some, I just felt the mechanics were great, but the overall theme and feel left me wanting something with substance.

    I'm not exactly sure how I managed to play this for so long, but apparently I played for nearly 50 hours before burning out on it. This game is basically a single-player MMO. I did enjoy the wide range of character builds and items, and how huge the world is, but.. that's really all this game has going for it. The plot is nonexistent, the enemies lack diversity, the battles are pretty much just you spamming the same skills repeatedly, and the quests are bland to the point where you'll pretty much forget what you were doing halfway through.

    Yet.... 50 hours. And I was hoarding items for other classes for use in future playthroughs. I may yet replay this, but I've no idea why.

    Welcome to Skyrim of hack and slash games!!!

    Sacred 2 is to hack and slash games what skyrim is to rpgs. A grand world filled with life where every corner,every item and every npc can tell u a whole new story if u are careful enough to listen.One of the most massive sized games i have ever played, im really not ashamed to say i thought it wasnt worth my time (i got it on humble bundle sale long time ago for 1 euro - package deal), so it just sat there unused just to shine my library of games. Having finished fallout 3 i wanted something simple to cool off and since i saw it there, i said to myself lets give it a try. And that was the moment i realized how stupid i was all this time for not giving this game a chance.

    Where should i even start with this game... From the moment u enter, until the moment u log out those awesome detailed graphics are the thing thats in your mind. Flowers blossom, birds fly, water is so smooth and realistic, npcs talk to u and everything feels so damn alive and stunning. Whether its a forest zone, an island, a cave or frosty peak from the tinniest rock to the grandest cathedral everything has such detail that i can honestly say it works to perfection.If u have modern age graphic cards u are in a big treat i can tell u that much. Also the music and sounds are so deeply connected to the game , that u will feel u stepped in a real life market or in a god damned brawl everytime u fight. The game gets u and pumps you up or smooths u depending on the situation. Also the character design is so freaking awesome and even more so when u will finally be able to ride all their unique mounts :P

    In terms of gameplay i cant say that this title offers anything revolutionary but it goes a step further than most rpgs of this kind dare to do. Offering a unique set of 7 playable characters, this game goes beyond in what u call normal characters. Here u will find the dragon mage(the guy can turn into a dragon or summon one so thats all u need to know :P), the dryad(druid style magic and range), the seraphim(the fallen angel that can do everything), the inquisitor(like the name suggests u will burn in hell mf), the shadow warrior(the most brutal close fighter u will see), the high elf(the magician) and the temple guardian(anubis dog warrior that can use a wide range of support skills and kick ♥♥♥ while doing so). Each character has a unique skill tree branching into 3 seperate styles and thus can be used according to your style and needs of play. Also depending on your morality u can choose what deity u will want to follow which adds a new support mega spell for u to use in time of need. Also note that u can either chose to play the campaign as the good guy or the bad guy which is really cool considering your choices matter.

    Now as u move into the game itself u will notice if u press m the map. And here my friends is where the strength of this title unfolds. Everything u see can be explored and everything can be opened. When i said above that this game is the skyrim of hack and slash games i meant it. With the addition of the expansion in the gold edition of the game there are over 600 quests for u to do meaning that if u want to start now u will approximately finish around some time next summer. The map is so huge that each player can walk round and round for ages and still not opening it completely. Thats why u can teleport from great town to great town and use monoliths that act as resurrection points and safe spots for when u log out. And if u think thats not enough u can buy mounts so u can run faster than before and if u are lucky prolly use the unique mounts of each class if u got what it takes. There is a magic feel when u see in my case an angel moving on mounting a sabertooth tiger :P

    Now like usual if u play hack and slash games the idea is to use your char to kill/loot and then becoming the ultimate badass hero or in this case a villain too.Thats why this game offers u over 600 side quests so u can do everything and find everything this game has to offer. Be careful though cause as u lvl up the enemies lvl up with u as well. Dont be surprised when u see a rat lvl 30 killing u if u are not too cautious and think its an easy drill. Personally im not that much into side quests but truth be told there are some that u absolutelly must do like helping The Blind Guardian group make its concert. The game satire and real life references will make u lol especially in cases like this. And dont worry if u dont side quests. U can take all the gear u want just by following the main story and killing the champion monsters along the way. Sure the side quests reward with greater loot but u wont be disappointed by the stuff u get when u play the main mission as well.

    Now for the not so good...

    In terms of storytelling the story itself is not so good, not that bad just the typical u would expect in a title of this kind. It serves nice though cause it makes u see the whole continent and experience what it means to be good or bad depending on your choice of playthrough. Still it could have been better and more polished.

    And the most annoying thing for most players:the use of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ camera. U wont know how many times i swore before i looked into to forums in order to fix it to more standard hack and slash rpgs formulas. If u dont have a problem with it then by all means skip my previous comment, but if u do search online for various guides in order to fix it. Each guide offers a different approach so be sure to check if thats your way of gaming.

    Overall i think sacred 2 is one of the most underrated hack and slash rpgs. U always hear about diablo(now mostly bad comments, but 2 still rocks), titan quest and torchlight and this little gem is always pushed to the side. For me it has become a favourite and i hope that if u buy it u will enjoy it as much as i do.
