Last generation, action/RPG fans had the benefit of the Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath titles, but we really don't have too many similar games for the PS3 and 360. Well, it's Ascaron's Sacred 2: Fallen Angel to the rescue, which should provide plenty of non-stop hack 'n slash entertainment. This new Mounts and Dragons video ought to convince you to pay attention come February, when you'll find yourself yearning for an experience you haven't had in quite some time... The PC version is already out and snagging good review scores, and the developer has gone on record saying the console version of Sacred 2 will be equal in overall quality. Colorful and fast, this one should be a breath of fresh air.
