I'm just sad I missed the $49.xx price point. :( If I liked Too Human, then, would I like this game too? I'm hearing a ton of mixed things.
I liked Too Human, and I like this game as well. One of the biggest reasons I like both games is because of the seemingly endless number of items you can hunt down for your character (and they'll all pretty much change the look of your character when equipping them, which most games don't bother doing at all... this is a good lure to get girlfriends and wives playing, and guys can appreciate it too...lol). Both games, however, are hurt by poor camera choices and questionable interface design, but I don't think they make the game unplayable by any means. Multiplayer in Sacred 2 seems much better than Too Human as well, which is nice. Same-screen co-op is great and multiplayer supports up to four players, rather than just two. You trade the futuristic, Norse-mythology-based setting in Too Human for a more classic, Dungeons and Dragons setting in Sacred 2. I think most people prefer this style, as it kind of goes hand in hand with the hack 'n' slash dungeon crawler aRPGs.
Now, I still like Diablo 2's item system better, but these games are as close as you can get on the 360. I don't think the stats on rare items in Sacred pack quite the same 'oomph' as some of the cool stuff I found back in the days of Diablo 2, but it'll do for now... Hopefully, somebody at Blizzard will remove their head from their rear and realize that Diablo 3 on consoles would be a gold mine and couldn't definitely work
In the meantime, this is a great alternative.
I think this game has filled a very large gap that has existed on the current generation of consoles since day one, and I feel it will do quite well because of that. Hopefully it will open up the door for more games of this genre.
