The first and most common type will usually make itself look as close to Diablo as possible while not doing anything new, becoming just another clone. The second type will draw from Diablo as its inspiration but actually add to the hack and slash aspects. Sacred 2 has plenty of hacking, slashing, looting, questing, and skilling up, so it is definitely Diablo-esqe and fits squarely into one of the two types. Thankfully, it is more of the latter than the former."
