Sacred 2 is Pure Gaming Crack!

So, an early Xbox 360 review copy of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, which hits retail next week alongside the PS3 version, arrived yesterday afternoon, and after a good 3-4 hours of hacking, slashing, questing and looting last night alone I just wanted to give console gamers itching for a good old fashioned action-RPG fix a quick heads up that this is the hack-n-slash crack you’ve been craving. It is unbelievably addictive!

The other good news is that thus far the console adaptation seems fairly solid…on the Xbox 360 at least. There are some intrusive loading times that don’t exist on the PC and the graphics are a notch below what the game looks like on a high-end gaming rig, but other than that I haven’t come across any other noticeable limitations. The game runs smooth and the interface, while not entirely ideal, works well once you get a handle on where everything is.

Unfortunately for the copies of Ninja Blade and Velvet Assassin sitting by my 360 waiting to be finished, Sacred 2 will surely be taking up most of my console gaming time over the weekend. I’ll report back with a full review next week.
