Sacred Underworld jollies GamerDad

GamerDad has posted a review of Sacred Underworld. They give it a 3.5/5 stars, mention that there's no gory blood(because Encore sucks balls), and so forth. Here's a clip:

The only truly new things are two added characters: Dwarf and Daemon. The Dwarf is a male character, and the Daemon is female, and they each start at level 29 with a ‘kit' that you can't alter. The Dwarf is the prototypical burly fighter type, but the Daemon is a very interesting character. She is a creature who was driven from Hell and stripped of most of her powers. She is primarily a weapon-based fighter, but can transform herself to unleash greater destruction, and also use some magical powers. My previous character from the original Sacred was a Battle Mage, which was focused mainly on the fire and water disciplines, but always needed some melee capability. I had tried the Gladiator and found the direct combat to be tiresome after several hours. I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable the combat was with the Daemon because her blend of melee and elemental powers are a very nice mix that made some of the more grinding dungeon crawls interesting.​
Well, that's only if you don't want to play through the original campaign at level 1. If you start from level 1, the classes are whatever you want them to be within the limitations of what that class offers. The Daemon doesn't have to really be a melee class.

Now really, though, about that T for Teen rating crap. Notice that the uncensored version sold very well where it was offered. Meanwhile, the game kind of bombed in North America where the publisher decided to censor the violence. Sometimes cutting out some blood effects just to get in to big box retail outlets doesn't help sales, I guess!
