Default Sacrifice, still the best RTS after all this time.

After seeing Sacrifice pop onto STEAM, i figured I'd reinstall Sacrifice on my new computer. Sure enough, the game is still as fun as the day I got it over 9 years ago.

I know "best RTS of all time" is probably pushing it. I just made that title to get people to click the link. Age of Empires 2 is the best RTS, followed by Sacrifice.


Anyone who has not played Sacrifice, do yourself a favor and buy it on steam. Its only 9 bucks. I have played through the game at least a dozen times. To put that into perspective, i've probably only beat about 15-20 games my entire life. For me to actually finish a game REALLY means something. I have played this game from begining to end far more than any other game. Do yourself a favor and check Sacrifice out.

There is a game on the Wii called little king story. If you like sacrifice, and you can get past the kiddy-looking graphics, you'll love this game. Honestly it's probably the most innovative RPG since star craft. Really incredible game. Hell, I'll sell my copy to you for $30 + shipping.

I'm telling you, it's one of the best RTS of all time. The sheer amount of depth to the game, not to mention the boss battles are amazing. But suit yourself.

I finished sacrifice, but I always remember it being a very buggy game. I would get a lot of random crashes. Still, great game.

Yes I tried. I can't bring myself to recommend anyone to get it unless some work is done to increase stability and compatibility. Hell some people can't even get as far as the main menu because the game requests a CD key, but none is given in the purchase. This happened to when I tried it at my friend's computer because it didn't work on my own (due to another problem, extremely unstable framerate with creatures on screen).

I agree it's one of the greatest, but the disappointment I feel now being utterly unable to play it despite having paid for it on what I used to think was a rock solid reliable service, Steam, make me kind of want to forget about the game

Thats incorrect. The game does come with a CD key. I still have my jewel case with the CD key.
