"At face value Sacred Citadel looks like a dream fantasy RPG beat ‘em up. It’s got four unique character classes, three player co-op, character development, a multitude of killer weapons to discover and plenty of scenic levels to conquer. It seemed to possess a very similar feel to one of the greatest co-op fantasy beat ‘em ups on the Xbox – Castle Crashers – and if that held true for the duration of the game, Sacred Citadel promised to be a great arcade title.
As I discovered after some dedicated hours with Sacred Citadel, however, ‘face value’ can be deceiving."
