Sacred in name only, not in execution.
First i have to be bearer of bad news, this game ripped the heart and soul out of sacred universe.
1. There is no loot system, enemies will drop gold, and exp, and you might find a piece of armor to upgrade, and weapons are only available from meerchants. No more hunting sets, or trying to farm that one magical ring to rule them all, just a action game with shops.
2. only two combat arts, are available, and they all do the same thing with each class. These are your only source of dealing damage.
Light attack-your basic damage dealing attack that can combo.
charged attack- this stops enemies from casting breaking traps, and shields.
defence move- a simple roll like diablo 3, that can deal some dmg.
finishing move- insta kill enemies lying on ground.
3.weapon spirits- this unique skill allows you to buff party members while debuffing other skills. You have a chance to release a weapon spirit when you defeat enemies, and once released, those companions stay with you. one spirit enhances your Charged Hit but causes hits to drain your own life.
4.battle system- looks like a solid slasher, but lacks depth. Thing castle crashers but with over head camera and no jumping. At times the add mini games like breaking down walls, standing your ground against mobs, turning a lever.
5.level design. Gone is the open world of Ancaria. Instrad we get corridor crawler. All levels are linear, hardly if any room to explore. No levels like Diablo 3 desert, levels are more like the sewers, one direction.
That is it, Sacred universe is dead, and we get an over priced over head brawler.
SACRED 3 DEAD... do not buy this game
This game is gonna be nothing like the other 2 Sacred games. They have destroyed the game. They have taken the open world out of the game. This is a complete and total flop of the game. Its worth 15.00 at best
As I just said, I'm excited about this game. I watched the preview videos on the official site and it looks awesome. Character diversity, cool environment; it looks fun. I played Sacred 2 and enjoyed it for the most part although I felt there were too many missions at a time. Still, this looks to be an improvement. I especially cannot wait to play through the campaign with my boyfriend, seeing as we haven't really had anything to play in terms of co-op. I want this game now! ;)
Sacred Looks Great
Sacred 3 is a small, more obscure game. Instead of playing mainstream games, I rather delve into hidden gaming gems. Sacred 3 looks fantastic. I like how it is still on PS3 which people say is "dying". Even though PS3 is still getting AAA games, people still say that. Sacred 3 has dungeon environments which gives it an RPG feel. There will be a few DLC bonuses if you pre-order the game. Glad to see that these smaller games are bringing quality content.
I have never played any of the sacred titles, but the video that was just released has me very, VERY interested, I think i iwll do day one and get the exclusive content.......who knows. looks awsome though...........
