All in all Sacred 2 is a gorgeous Action RPG that stands in it's own right. Co-Op works well with with the four player co-op campaign mode, and you'll find yourself in plenty of those "had to be there moments." There are some issues with the interface, not only for starting a game, but for basic things like item trading. These are minor in the grander scheme of things. Sacred 2 should satisfy any MMORPG urges you have, without having to pay any monthly fees.
