Even though it's not anywhere near as good as Sacred 1, Sacred 2 is definitely a gorgeous gorgeous game.
Which makes it even sadder that they obviously hadn't the time nor resources to do the sky, or make more monsters than... rats. Rats. MOAR RATS.
It's not as in-your-face if you play a ranged aoe build, but if you're melee... zomg the RATS! They're so obviously a placeholder it's not funny. >.>
<.< Now when I play S2, I refuse to play anything that has to aim in more than a general direction. XD
