Sacred 2: Fallen Angel Review: Experience Required.

If you aren't that experienced with role playing games, such as Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, like me you are going to have a slow go at trying to figure out exactly what you are doing and what your goals are. But, with patience, you will find yourself having a fun, exciting, and challenging gaming experience. The first few times I tried playing the game, I admit that it was somewhat intimidating as I couldn't quite figure out what the heck I was supposed to be doing. Finally, I decided to sit down and give it a shot, come hell or high water.

The aim of Sacred Angel 2 is to offer a gigantic world for you to run around, whack stuff with weapons and spells, grab the loot it drops, and repeat. Sound kind of boring? Well, Sacred Angel is far from it, due mainly to the previously mentioned gigantic world that I previously mentioned.

Sacred Angel delivers on those elements as well as offering up six interesting character classes to build and customize however you see fit. So if you're looking for a good old-fashioned loot grind to play by yourself or with others online, this game will meet your goals.

Here is the basic gameplay. You click mouse buttons to attack foes, hack away at their power bars, quaff potions, against hard-hitting boss characters, and scoop up all the cash and loot that those who have fallen spill onto the battlefield. Sacred 2 does manage to distinguish itself in a few ways from the other types of high-fantasy, action RPGs out there.

The game world, Ancaria, is incredibly massive. There is great detail in this world that you journey through. Yet mixed into this seemingly standard high-fantasy universe , you get this strange magical substance, called T-Energy. This T- Energy lends itself to some of the more interesting bits of the storyline. You'll be walking across a field of trees and green grass and suddenly see a pipeline jutting from the earth carrying this glowing blue energy that's the source of conflict in Ancaria.

It offers a huge world to explore, tons of loot, plenty of monster types, and lots of ways to customize its six character classes. After spending many, many hours playing this game, only one a a mere handful that I have tried in my life, I concluded that this was the best of the bunch.

There were what seemed like a couple of bugs in the game, but not anything too serious that it would take away from the enjoyment of playing the game.

Overall, the blog-o-rama meter gives this one a 7.5 out of 10.
