SACRED 2: FALLEN ANGEL VERDICT
As RPGs go, Sacred 2 is likeable enough, but as a console game it doesn’t quite gel. It’s an admirable adaptation, and the menu pages that you navigate through using the triggers work really well, as does the combat, which has been ported perfectly to the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers. Our only misgiving is the severe lack of personality and character, which ultimately leaves the game devoid of any real propulsion to its action and that just leaves us feeling a little bit cold towards the whole thing. Nonetheless, if story, characterisation and personality are at the bottom of your RPG checklist, then Sacred 2: Fallen Angel may well be the game for you. We just think the whole thing could have used a bit of that pesky T-Energy to transform it into something far more special.

Bludgeoning an army of squeaky-voiced gnomes (sorry, Kobolds) with a flaming hammer. Worth the asking price alone we think you’ll agree.
