Those of you waiting for a decent hack 'n slash action/RPG that would remind you of Champions of Norrath were likely disappointed when Sacred 2: Fallen Angel didn't hit store shelves on March 24.

For some reason, it missed that release date and since then, has kinda dropped off the radar. But GameSpot has confirmed that the new release date is May 12, and this time, we shouldn't have to suffer through any more delays. We do, however, have some potentially bad news: the publisher told GameSpot that the PlayStation 3 version of the game wasn't "finished yet," but it's still on track to launch alongside the 360 version on the aforementioned date. …well, that's nice, but why are they behind on the PS3 version? That's almost never a good sign, but we'd like to hope that both versions will be almost identical (as most all third-party multiplatform titles are these days). We'll just cross our fingers regarding this subject, but getting back to the launch date, European gamers will have to wait until June to play it on either the PS3 or 360. The game's European distributor, Deep Silver, said it will release on June 5. We're hoping it'll be worth the wait and in the meantime, feel free to check around for more info; we've got videos and screenshots and all that good stuff.  And yes, there's plenty of gameplay footage.

We really miss the good ol' days of CoN and Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance , which is why we're so excited for Sacred 2 . We're not expecting a Game of the Year blockbuster, but we'd love some straight-up action/RPG entertainment.

Another mediocre game that will be ported to PS3 poorly and Xbox dorks will brag about….I don't even know why I care about them….spending to much time on the internet these days.

They're behind on the PS3 version because they want to add a little more on there … just because one consoles dvd9 is filled up doesn't mean a developers creativity has dried up. At least that's what I'm hoping. PS3 version FTW !

Never heard of this game.

Hope it turns out to be good.

Kinda sick of getting hyped for games.

Would love something to surprise me.

I have absolutely no enthusiasm for this because of that horrible screen shot.

Yeah! It looks like a pretty crappy cheap game that will probably cost 60 bucks. Ill pass on this one, but then again I have to pass on all of them for a good while until I can afford to repair, or replace my 600.00 brick.

Tbh the trailer says it all. F**k am I buying this game. Looks worth a try to rent though. See where I get to from there.

And btw. The PS3 may be a brick, but at least it ain't a 360, where it s**ts out a brick that hangs out of it.
