Sacred 3 might be the first entry in the series to be developed by newcomer Keen Games, but the developer looks set to show it understands the guts of the franchise with a back to basics approach. Favourite characters such as Seraphim, Ancarian, Khukuhru and the Safiri return, doing battle against anarchic green-skins in this action role-playing game. The floating camera returns to give players a birds-eye view of environments swarming with enemies, giving the game a feel that puts it right in sync with previous entries. One crucial difference, however, is that the game has been developed with more focus on the gamepad. This means that the click-click combat of previous Sacred games is less prevalent and there's more of a focus on action. The game's physics are more realistic meaning that, for instance, a powerful blow will result in an enemy flying across the screen with a satisfying oomph. Sacred 3 has a very strong focus on co-op play. Even if you're not playing with friends online (and you don't need to be connected at all times to play) you'll have three AI companions on-screen with you at all times. This pays off with move-sets that combine the abilities of all four on-screen characters for devastating attacks. A drop-in/drop-out co-op mechanic really seals the deal to make Sacred 3 a full-blooded co-op game, rather than an RPG with multiplayer as an afterthought.
