Well I think the graphics look odd but cool in some ways - it's like between Ray Harryhausen style/films and fantasy/sci fi games. I would like to see more videos and reviews before deciding to get it but i think that this game could be good. Also I will agree with LordMacKnight, I'm a girl and i love to play console games, it isn't demeaning women, it in fact shows our feminine side and the point is that the game is showing a contrasting in gender looks but it also means that girls can be the heroine/villain as well as the boys in the game - so meaning that girls and boys are equal and can be a hero or villain. Also nowadays sadly there are girls wearing less clothes than them but also remember it is only a game! But overall seems like a good game :).
Okay, come now, let's be serious. Unless you live in a convent, I'm sure you know at least one girl who would willingly wear any of that if she could find it or knew how to make it. If you don't, look at pictures of conventions if you're not willing to go yourself. No one forced them to dress like that. Also, Fantasy art has been that way since long before I was born. Besides, the "demeaning" had the girl in the scantily clad armor save the butts of the heavily armored dude, the robot, and the mildly more consertative gal. Artwork like that is not demeaning. Demeaning is FAR worse than this particular rendtion of fantasy artwork. Is it wrong to have someone both stong, and attractive? Or is that a little too demeaning? Should we just go back to standard gender roles and have a damsel in distress that can't do anything other than scream? It's 2009. People wear less clothing on the street every day than what you're griping about in that picture. I bet you're willing to sign a petition for women's sufferage too.
Just telling everyone that doesn't know this... Blind Guardian isn't 80's Hair Metal. It's a form European Power Metal like Hammerfall, Theroine and Steel Attack. Hair or Glam Metal are made up of bands like Poison, Ratt, Motley Crue, W.A.S.P. or Guns 'n' Roses. Sorry I'm a bit of a Metal-Head and I hate it when people get stuff like this confused. Really looking forward to Brutal Legend. They snagged me when they used Judas Priest's "Electric Eye" in the early trailers.
I see people still love to bash a game based off of a CG trailer...some things never change. The game is actually pretty fun. It has a few issues but overall is a very nice game. To the post below me....ITS CALLED FANTASY...get over it.
I thought gaming was moving beyond female characters wearing bikinis into battle. I don't know anything about the game, but I completely lost interest as soon as I saw BOTH female characters wearing them. Lame and insulting.
As someone said previously, the video honestly looks awful in almost all aspects. Blurry (most likely horrible quality stream), character models and textures that look dated (Diablo 2 cinematics looked far better), recycled stock sounds/poor voice effects (grunts and such) and horrible animation. The only things I liked were the eye opening in the beginning, the initial closeup of the Seraphim character, the end of the video after the book closing (although the lip syncing seemed off and the way he ended the line was awkward to me, as if he had more to say), and of course the Blind Guardian track playing in the background. But, this all means nothing to the actual game, which from what I played of the PC demo, seemed quite good. Just my rant on how awful the video was in my opinion.
Loving this game. 4-player coop is awesome. My summer savior game, thank you Ascaron. More like this!
eep! Am I the only one who likes this game? So many negative comments about the video, it seems, and not about the game itself. Sacred 2 is quite fun to play and the graphics (the in-game graphics during game-play) are very nice!
Oh boy they fail big time what is the matter with these games seems like they come out to market at killos. Large quantity of games but only a few are worth to play.
Whats with the random sci-fi bits thrown in. Why is there T-energy, why is there an anubis looking thing with a laser, if your gonna do Tolkien fantasy mixed with sci fi, do it right. And next time, give me a review, I blame it on kevin VanOrd,well, and the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol, baby
This should be fun while Diablo III isn't here yet. By the way, how's the online capability on this one?
No, the background music is Blind Guardian, the game developer is german the band is german , connection.
i'm so sick of watching warrior chicks in nothing but bras, g-strings and shoulder pices -_- not to mention them whilding oversized swords with their small flimsy arms that workedout men even cant hold. but i guess this is what the masses whats, after all most of them are ignorante males. ignorance is a bliz.
The mutation modif reminds me of Fallout 3... I know they're not the same, but seems like they may have played off it. Great music!
cool song that's it in the hole goddamn thing the song was the only thing that was cool! atleast they could have made the graphics better but noooooo! and the is shi% too wtf "The T-energy pipe is broken" thats like saying "the water pipeline is broken and your quest is to clean the city from all the cr@p thats comin' out!
I know it's easy to be critical but honestly, the animation, the sound effects, even the models for the people were pretty bad. I've seen in-game cutscenes that were more impressive than this intro video. It doesn't have to be to the level of, say Wrath of the Lich King's intro, but for a game like this, I just expected a little more.
It looked okay (typical) until we saw the guy's mouth moving... that was some of the worst mouth-moving animation I have seen on a PS3 game... (Bioshock was pretty bad too, although that is a great game).
