Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is an Action Role-playing Game (RPG) where the paths players choose and the decisions they make along the way, determine not only the destinies of their character, but also that of their chosen race as a whole, members of the other five other in-game races, and perhaps the game world of Ancaria itself. Set 2,000 years prior to the self-titled first game in the Sacred series, Fallen Angel is prequel to the events and quests of earlier RPG hit, that drops players in the midst of an epic struggle for control of elemental power on the grandest of scale.

The Story
T-Energy has been flowing through Ancaria since time immemorial. This mysterious power forms the beginning of all life, is the source of all magic and the origin of all thought. For eons the angelic Seraphim watched over the T-Energy and therefore over the fate of the entire world. But eventually tiring of their burden, they passed their knowledge on to the High Elves. T-Energy helped the realm of the High Elves to experience an unimaginable boost of prosperity, making it the reigning culture in Ancaria. But a force as powerful as T-Energy carries great dangers. Not taught how to deal with this, no sooner did the Elves take control, then a heated dispute erupted among them as to how and to what purpose the T-Energy was to be used. Dispute morphed into irresolvable conflict, then rift and eventually to a civil war among the High Elves, where all participants were losers. Their realm collapsed and with it the entire power structure of Anacaria. In the turmoil all the peoples of Anacaria coveted the right, either openly or in secret, to wield the power of T-Energy and in the end, unmanaged, the T-Energy raged out of control warping creature and lands alike. Can anyone regain control over the T-Energy. And if so, will he/she strive to prevent the world from lapsing into final chaos, or deepen it?

Gameplay
Gameplay in Sacred 2: Fallen Angel in divided into two campaign paths: Light and Dark. As the game begins players choose and customize their character and choose the path they will follow. This choice determines the ultimate goal and intentions of their character, and as the game progresses through literally hundreds of quests and side quests, the paths of different characters intersect at different junctions. Choose one way and you may be tasked to defend a town and its people, while another path could result in you attacking the same town. The choice is yours and the fate of the world and your well-being are at stake.

Key Game Features:

  • A massive, seamless and dynamic world delivering hundreds of hours of freeform exploration.
  • Two deep campaigns: play as the “Light” or “Shadow” side, complete with distinct skills, rewards and story-elements tailored to the chosen path.
  • Six exceptional, playable characters, each with a distinct look, capabilities and in-game motivation.
  • Modifiable combat arts: change, upgrade and link together your alter ego’s combat skills to match your playing style.
  • Fight effectively from the back of a number of mounts under your control; equip and upgrade your character’s unlockable special mount.
  • Deities offer unique combat disciplines and unlock additional quests.
  • Seamless transition between single- and multiplayer gaming modes via LAN and the Internet.
  • Captivating online modes of play challenge gamers in cooperative, PvP and PvE play.
  • Extraordinary, cutting-edge graphics and Dolby 5.1 channel surround sound utilize the latest technologies for a truly immersive experience.
Character Classes
In Sacred 2: Fallen Angel players assume the role of one of six characters--five of which are new to the franchise--and delve into a thrilling story full of side quests and secrets that you will have to unravel. Breathtaking combat arts and sophisticated spells are waiting to be learned. A multitude of weapons and items will be available, and you will choose which of your character's attributes you will enhance with these items in order to create a unique and distinct hero.
Seraphim character class from 'Sacred 2: Fallen Angel' Seraphim
Often referred to as 'Fallen Angels,' these mystical and angelic creatures are the oldest inhabitants of Ancaria. Fast, elegant and acrobatic warriors from a technological future they fight with light to medium weapons and, if required, with massive technological support. Players can assume the role of a Seraphim and protect the world from chaos.
Shadow Warrior character class from 'Sacred 2: Fallen Angel' Shadow Warrior
Shadow Warriors were originally humans trained as elite soldiers in service to the High Elves. Upon their death their souls were stolen by an Elven general, bound to lifeless bodies and imbued with T-Energy. Now free, they travel between this world and the next as undead beings with only the desire to return to the peace of the golden halls of Elysium.
High Elf character class from 'Sacred 2: Fallen Angel' High Elf
The best student at the ancient academy of magic in Thylysium, the High Elf character lives and breathes magic. Her hunger for adventure and her insatiable desire to increase her personal knowledge and the influence of her once-powerful house are the driving forces as she sets off into an Ancaria boiling over with turmoil.
Dryad character class from 'Sacred 2: Fallen Angel' Dryad
Masters of the hunt and akin to the Elves, The Dryad are in tune with nature and are equipped with the strength of the forests. The most powerful and the strongest among them are knowledgeable of the dark art of voodoo and were chosen in order to save their peoples from extinction. All are expert with the bow, traps, poisons and lore of the forest.
Inquisitor character class from 'Sacred 2: Fallen Angel' Inquisitor
The Inquisitors are the High Priests of the High Elves. Arrogant and deadly, they are only committed to themselves and their ultimate goal of assume control over the T-Energy. Proficient in close combat and able to gain increasing power as damage is taken, their manipulative spells make them powerful fighters from the shadows.
Temple Guardian character class from 'Sacred 2: Fallen Angel' Temple Guardian
Since the beginning of time the purpose of Temple Guardians were to maintain and protect the Great Machine, so that it could keep the world in balance. Neither fully flesh or mechanical, they are half human and half machine. Propelled by T-Energy and devoted to protecting it, they are part of the Great Machine and so able to use the T-Energy for their purposes.

A Wide Variety of Mounts
Across Ancaria you will find many horse dealers. They offer all kinds of animals, from the simple nag up to a real war horse. You can equip a war horse with bridle, saddle and even special armor. These special items can be found in the game just like player items, ranging in quality from regular to rare and even unique items. In addition, every character also has a unique mount created specifically for their character class. This mount not only fits the personality of the character, but also complements the various aspects of the character's playing style perfectly. All character classes can fight from a mounted position using a variety of tactics that the player chooses depending on the terrain and battle conditions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great potential, big Bugs! November 28, 2008
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a big fan of dungeon crawlers and played Sacred 1 extensively. I've been playing Sacred 2 for a few weeks now and it's getting frustrating. The game play itself is quite a bit of fun for a dungeon crawler fan like myself. Good character customization, a nice variety of loot, and a ginormous world to explore.

Unfortunately that's where my praise ends. I've had nothing but problems trying to get into multiplayer games, and spent 45 minutes trying last night before their lobby software finally let me create a game. Once in, it's stable enough, but you'll tear out your hair trying to get there.

Now, 2 reason NOT to buy the CE version of this game if you still want to play.

1. The Carrier Imp *ONLY* works in Closed multiplayer mode. It is not IS NOT available in Single Player, Single Player Coop, or Open multiplayer. It's a complete waste of money unless you are playing only Closed multiplayer.

2. Per the Sacred 2 forums, eventually the elite textures will be downloadable. This won't appeal to everyone, especially because it will be a ~6GB download, but it is not good a reason to buy the CE version of this game. I can't even use elite textures because it crashes the game (I'm running an ATI 4870 and 3.5 GB RAM).

The game it still young, and hopefully they'll get the issues worked out, but if you don't have the patience of a saint, you might not want to buy this game.

** Update **
Haven't had a lobby issue for quite a while, so it's probably fixed. Now if only they would fixed the Closed servers. I get ping times anywhere from 400 to 1800 playing Closed, which is absolutely unplayable. For some reason, all their english servers appear to be in Germany still...

4.0 out of 5 stars Old School/New Tech February 17, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've put about 100 hours into the game and haven't even played 3 of the character classes. I, like many reviewers, was experiencing random lockups. I did some research and discovered that NVIDIA Physx were the problem. I disabled this feature and the game has yet to crash. However, I still have random sound issues (but at least the game doesn't lock). With that said, I love this game. The game play just feels right. There are many Diablo clones that have a detached feeling to them. Don't know if it's the sound effects or the feel of hitting an enemy...whatever it is, they did it right in Sacred 2. I couldn't find mention of the difficulty levels in the manual (but I purchased online and the manual is not complete). So, when I discovered that Bronze, Silver and Gold were not the end of the game, I was ecstatic. If you haven't played yet, know that the game also has Platinum and Niobium levels. So, if you think the game is too easy (you hardcore gamers out there) play through silver and gold (can be done quickly sticking to main plot only) and start in on Platinum...this is where the challenge begins for the real hack and slash veteran. Difficulty is also VERY dependent on class. The manual does state which characters are "easier" versus "harder" to play. I strongly agree with their assessments. A noob can play the Shadow Warrior in his/her sleep and never die. A fragile High Elf is a bit of a challenge (as it should be). I'm very happy to see a game that has such a broad distinction in classes. The different paths and ability to greatly customize each class is also very well implemented (even if it does take some messing about to figure out the best builds--thankfully there are already some great build guides on the net). The mob leveling is also done well. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could give it 5 Stars December 30, 2008
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Love the game play.
Love the graphics.
Love the characters.
Love the loot.
Love the LAN game.
Love there are no monthly fees of any sort.

For the non-Collectors Edition version I gladly give it 4 stars!
I love playing and wish I could give it the first 5 star on Amazon...
Unfortunately the patching system is terrible. After a clean install you are prompted if you want to check for updates. DO NOT USE THE AUTOMATIC UPDATER. It will bend files before telling you it cannot update them correctly. Those bent files will prevent manual patching from working. So you will have to delete your fresh install and create a completely new, clean install. When you do, do NOT forget to unregister the product (you only get 2 registered installs per game). If you remember to unregister the product every time you have to do a reinstall (let us pray this is not often). I am glad they are fixing bugs (there are still a few that will bring the game to a screeching halt) but I wish they fixed their patches/updater.

Unfortunately for the Colletor's Edition I could give only 3 Stars
While I look at them as a kind of bonus, the upgraded graphics are barely noticible unless you tend to play very close-up. The map is not useful in any way (it's a geographical map - virtually nothing helpful to find towns, roads etc). But the deal killer is the Carrier Imp. The only reason we got them (we have two copies) was for the Carrier Imp - but that's only useful online!?!? So for us the CE version was a complete waste of money because we only play LAN games. So buy the regular version unless you want to play only online.

Pros:
Great game play.
Great graphics.
Great LAN play.
Great story.
They are trying to fix bugs.
