Well the box looks nice, the game looks nice if you can start it. Installing the game is easy, patching it is a little bit harder, but playing it it's even... harder then it seems. Lots of problems, unresolved yet and mostly of them technical. If you can solve them, the game is fun to play, the story, the atmosphere and the graphics are nice but the game lacks the pace. The good part is that the addon solves some of these problems and the gaming experience is incresead by 50% which makes the smart choice to buy the Gold Edition that has both the original and the expansion. The MP part is far more fun because in 2-3 the game is starting to be like a MMO which is good and fun! Sacred 1 was great, I hoped that Sacred 2 was greater but... the technical problems, the engine that is not working as it should and the bad support the game has now (the developer company is dead) are the real problems that might not be solved in the future.
