Let’s get the obvious out of the way first. Sacred Plus is not an original game. Even the packaging makes references to the all time genre daddy of PC roleplaying games, Diablo. Sacred Plus with its isometric viewpoint and fast clicking combat owes Diablo a great debt, as well as showing influences from other giants in the field such as Baldur’s Gate and Everquest. However this is not to denigrate Sacred Plus from the offset, far from it. Very few games nowadays offer truly new experiences, the big test is how a game builds on its influences and shapes them into a worthwhile gaming experience. Sacred Plus has pulled together various key elements of the rpg genre to create a slick, fast-paced and very enjoyable game which should appeal especially to those who fancy some Orc slaying action but who don’t have the time to commit to some of the more epic games about.
