It's out here. I liked the first, but with so many games I've let this one slip.

For now.

I've played the demo some times, and I think they got some problems with gameplay.

Basically, a good hack&slash should have a interesting set of skills and special abilities that you use to form your gameplay. With Sacred 2 you are autoattacking and using 1-4 abilities (that many slots available) that get long cooldowns the more powerful they get. And if you combine them into Combos the cooldowns get even longer.

What I mean is the game does not allow me to form a good skillbased gameplay which should be a staple of a hack&slash game. The few skillslots and skill cooldowns limit flexible gameplay a lot in my opinion.

I just checked the Wizard gameplay video from D3 just some day ago, and Blizzard do know how to do a great hack&slash. You are never autoattacking, but using many different skills to build a diverse gameplay which is flexible and interesting.

In the end I felt Sacred 2 gameplay to be dull, which is a shame because the crafted world, map and questing looks great.

Yeah i bought it. While i don't have any performance related issues or any crashes, it still has a lot of bugs like broken quests, some monsters are immortal, your horse won't reappear when you log in the next time and many others. In German forums many people describe crashes and slow downs, esp with the latest hotfix. The lobby system is also still flawed. It's quite entertaining, but imho it was not ready for prime time yet. I will probably sell it in the next couple of days since many other good games come out.

Sounds like the first game... It was really buggy on release. Similar bugs.

It's been out here in sweden for a few days (dunno exactly when it was released here, i bought it monday), I picked up two copies one for me and one for my brother.

On my system it runs pretty well. Stay away from latest hot fix though. It makes the game stutter alot. The game is still quite buggy. It crashes from time to time on brother puter. For me it's fine (unless using the latest hotfix that is).

The game requires online activation and you can use it on two computers, online you can only play one at a time though but it will work for two people on lan according to reports from official forums. However you can also unlink the game should you wish to sell it, dvd is not requried to play.

Thus far it's been rather fun to play, i did like the first game and this one feels much the same with some slight changes in skill and other classes to play.
Theres loads of quests to do. The good loot is much harder to find now compared to the first game where it was way too easy.

Gfx looks a tad bit flat but it's not _that_ bad, textures are ok. with the collectors edition you get an extra dvd with higher quallity textures but I bought standard versions so I can't comment on those.

There's plenty of humor and references in the game too :)

The humor definitely adds to the game. High res textures don't seem to make a difference and are flawed too at the moment according to official forums.

I don't think it's a good idea to offer higher quality textures only to people who buys collectors edition, it's not fair

I have to agree about the HQ textures. I personally don't want anything in the CE versions other than the HQ textures. I still haven't bought it cause I am waiting to see if the US version will have the HQ textures on the standard version.

It is fair as long as there is no huge/noticeable difference between HQ and vanilla. as I've been hearing. :p
