Although previous versions of Sacred were "RPG Lite" diversions -- especially Sacred 2: Fall Angel -- the third game in the series falls flat. For one, the gameplay shortly grows redundant; players fight enemies, move onto the next part of the map, fight enemies, and repeat. An engrossing story, memorable characters, well-written dialogue, or some challenging puzzles might add more variety and meaning to players' actions. But for a game with decent hype, it's a letdown.

That said, the game is pretty and has good pacing, and the online cooperative play can be enjoyable. But, along with the tedium of fighting batches of enemies, the game suffers from bland levels, including worlds that are too linear. Plus, the voice acting isn't very good (and is potentially offensive, thanks to some sexually loaded comments toward and about women). Overall, Sacred 3 has some merit but isn't worth picking up unless you're a huge fan of the franchise.
