Sacred 2 - Updated Console Impressions @ IGN
IGN has updated impressions of Sacred 2 on the Xbox 360, due around February:
One of the cool things about Sacred 2 is that it supports both local and online four-player co-operative play, so you can load up your saved character, invite a friend to do the same and go traipsing around Ancaria jacking fools and getting paid. IGN Xbox editor Erik Brudvig and I took our characters on the road for a spell and found that the two-player local co-op works well overall, although there are still some issues with menu commands and inventory management, and these are brought into sharper relief when there are two players on the screen.
There are a lot of menus in Sacred 2, and it takes some serious time with the game before the controller commands become second nature. It's always a challenge to bring expansive PC RPGs -- which were made with keyboard and mouse controls in mind -- to the console realm, and there is a lot to manage in Sacred 2. Holding down the right bumper brings up a semi-radial menu that gives access to loot collection, quest data, combat arts, inventory screens and mount controls.
