Sacred Citadel - Weekend's Recommendation

Sacred Citadel
From an OK action RPG to an OK beat 'em up

Released in 2013, one year after the release of the game that killed the main series, Sacred Citadel is a spin-off game of a three-game action RPG series called Sacred, which was somewhat successful, in the early 2000, following the wake of Diablo II success. In this beat 'em up spin-off, you will be taking control of one of the four heroes and cross the land of Ancaria, fighting the hordes of the Ashen Empire that are out to destroy and conquer your land.

The story of the Sacred Citadel has it is roots firmly planted in the main series games, so to fully understand the story some previous knowledge of the Diablo wannabe is required. The game makes a good effort to explain everything, so you won't be feeling too out of your element here but, let's be honest, this is not the reason why you will play this game.
