The Sacred series has a very solid following of diehard fans, and there are a number of very good reasons why it does. Sacred 2 will bring you MANY, MANY hours of emotional roleplay gaming enjoyment, but also misery. You'll be elated one minute, then depressed the next....to the point of irony.
But why do I find the game so great and worth getting?
I ended up with a LONG run-on sentence listing all the reasons (not that my writing skills are even good anyways), so here's a numbered list to make things a bit easier to read:
1. It's got tons of loot (loot hoarder paradise);
2. an immense open world to explore (too big to adequately cover with one playthrough);
3. an overwhelming amount of quests (again, too much to cover in one playthrough);
4. Each Class has the capability of being developed to be a solid character to carry you through multiple playthroughs at different difficulties (these are level dependant);
5. The leveling and development choices are flexible enough to build that character the way you want to play;
6. And finally....BLIND GUARDIAN!!! A for real heavy metal band can be found in the game, but I don't want to spoil it for you too much. (psst...come here...hush, hush ok? There's a questline with an amazing ending.)<---No ♥♥♥♥ Sherlock!
So hey, if point 6 about a 1980s Heavy Metal Band from Germany who's music rocks the hell out the game doesn't make this an instant sale....well man, I really don't know what will.
The music (and yes! Heavy Metal is freakin music, don't you dare say otherwise! hehe) makes any fight an EPIC deathmatch (even against those dam rats. And here's a tip about rats, no joke, you see one of those and the music goes metal on you, RUN! RUN TO THE HILLS!)
And Yes, There were/are bugs in the game:
I've played through some game breaking bugs when this game came out, to the point of wanting to rip my hair out and destroy my computer, and everything else in my reach!! I'm just glad that MOST of them have been fixed, but I'd advise you to do like I do (as almost every other Sacred 2 player has learned).... SAVE....SAVE OFTEN! It's a good practice to follow for any game anyways.
The game tended to crash at almost identical intervals of time, forcing you to reload that last save.
And then there was the corrupted characters, but I don't want to go there, it's just too painful to relive that.
Getting and Buying the Sacred games:
I've bought Sacred 2 when it first came out, then later I bought Sacred 2: Fallen Angel Collector's Edition, and now I bought Sacred 2: Gold to finally have the Ice & Blood expansion to play the Dragon Mage class.
Finally, I'd like to point out something VERY important about the Sacred series as a whole. The followers and diehards of the Sacred series (most of the players anyways) DO NOT consider Sacred 3 and Sacred: Citadels of really being Sacred games. They are Sacred in name only, that's it, that's all. You might disagree and debate it until you turn blue in the face, but that fact will still remain true to most players who've played through the series since the start.
So, DO get:
+Sacred Underworld Expansion
=Sacred Gold (both combined)
+Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
+Sacred 2: Ice and Blood Expansion
=Sacred 2 Gold (both combined)
and visit The Sacred Wiki [www.sacredwiki.org]
for all your needs including maps, walkthroughs, and access to the community patches.
And DON'T get:
INSTEAD of those 2 which are a sacrilage to the Sacred series, support and wait for the real successor, called Unbended! It's a game in development by the original developers of Sacred.http://www.unbended.zone/http://www.sacredwiki.org/index.php/Unbended:Aetherra
In closing, dam this is WAY WAY too long, but I had lots to say about the game and the series.
Just get the game, especially since it's on sale for like $5 right now during the Xmas sale. You'll get your money's worth in just doing the tutorial portion believe me.
