Images of Sacred 2

Images of Sacred 2

Deepsilver and Ascaron have brought some life into Sacred 2: Fallen Angel again, showing these images from the Xbox 360 version and a couple of artworks. It's planned to be released in September on PC and Xbox 360. The first game was a huge hit and solder over 1.8 million copies when it was released in 2004.

Whew... have those developers ever heard anything about art design? All the objects don't look coherent at all.

Nice, been getting more into Western dungeon crawlers recently. Two player local co-op only is a bit of a disappointment (if it stays that way) but I'd rather not share my loot with anyone anyway! :P

You're right, the design of this game is not exactly appealing. It doesn't help that it has Xbox 1 graphics as well, but I'm sure the graphics aren't the point of the game anyway.

Still, it is fugly.

Even Loki looked better :)
As always, i'll stick with Titan Quest.

I liked the first Sacred (PC only, 2d game), and this one seems even better. Plus Blind Guardian is AWESOME. Not all of the art is horrible, but some of it is, I agree. I'm sure these guys don't have a lot of money for development though. I'm very interested as long as the gameplay turns out good.

What the..? This looks horrible in what way? You're not supposed to look at them from 1 meter away.
I think it looks good, if it runs smoothly its gonna be great. It's all about gameplay and content in games like these.

Ascaron made both of 1 and 2 right? And sold 1.8 million copies of 1? I don't know exactly what their financial state is or how it got there, but I find it hard to believe that they don't have a lot of money for development.

Actually, the PC footage of this game looks loads better. I have no clue why they downgraded the graphics for the 360 version. Maybe they'll explain why in an interview later.

Hunn?... go upgrade/buy a new PC, it's starting to play tricks on your eyes.

I think you might have misread my comment. There's a video of this game on gametrailers showing PC footage. The video actually contains way better looking graphics and effects apparently missing from these screenshots. I'm not sure what happened here.

Wow...what's with the graphic...it looks completely outdated.
Commented on 2008-05-31 13:52:13
I liked the first game. Waiting to check out this one too. Graphics looks good enough for me and you don't really use that zoomed view when playing the game anyway...
Commented on 2008-05-31 18:31:04
Peopleeeee, they're just screenshots. Please reserve judgement until you see the game in motion- that's what i'm doing.

Now, I think i've played this game before. I bought it as like a follow up to the Diablo series, because I heard that it was like it. So is this the Diablo-esque game i'm thinking of? If it's the game i'm thinking of, i'm quite looking forward to this one.

This is one of those games that "looks like a game" - which is kinda a bad thing. Because most games these days have decent enough art design that everything flows together and looks convincing as a world... This game however, looks kinda slacking.
Commented on 2008-05-31 22:38:26
Reminds of Two Worlds. Oddly outdated graphics and seriously questionable art direction. I'm not really adding anything that hasn't already been said, but yeah.. Everything looks very out of place, and nothing seems to fit together.

Sacred was a Diablo 2 clone albeit not nearly as good. I also look forward to Sacred 2, mostly because there aren't many Diablo like games out there. Too Human which is Sacred 2's immediate competitor, will be my first choice though and then I'll buy Sacred 2 in winter 2009, when the usual game drought is upon us.
