Game Informer Publishes a Top-Notch Sacred 3 Review
If you miss the good ol’ dungeon-crawlers from yesteryear, if you still play Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath from time to time, chances are, you’re at least mildly interested in Sacred 3.
The latest action/RPG effort has it where it counts, according to Game Informer. We get a solid, entertaining review where the critic correctly compares the new entry to past installments, explains what it does better (and where it’s lacking), and basically gives the reader everything he desires.
Remember, reviews are supposed to be tools. They’re supposed to give a consumer a better idea of the game, and whether or not they’ll be interested in purchasing it. That’s precisely what critic Jeff Cork does in his analysis, and that’s why we’re recommending it.
(There’s a minor error at the end of the fourth paragraph, but we’ll let it slide this once) 😉
Why We Like It:
— The critic obviously understands the target audience for the product. This is critical when it comes to such games, because that audience may not really care about graphical intricacies and story. It’s important to be intimate with the fans!
— There’s a nice blend of personal experience and objective analysis. Too many critics these days don’t do a good enough job when it comes to balancing.
— The review doesn’t fall prey to long-winded description; it’s concise and relatively well-written. It hits the highlights most readers will want to see, and doesn’t waste time with dull sermonizing. Always a plus.
