There's a <A href="http://pc.gamezone.com/gzreviews/r24714.htm">review</a> of <A href="http://sacred-game.com/">Sacred Underworld</a> over at <a href="http://pc.gamezone.com/">GameZone</a>. The score is a <b>7.1/10</b> and the reviewer calls the expansion <b>worthy of the original</b>. Here's a clip:
<br>
<blockquote>For starters, you might want to check out the original Sacred, it's a quality RPG that is firmly planted in the swords and sorcery realm. With its entirely massive world and varying characters, the RPG faithful could easily lock themselves away for long stretches of time, only to have their stark white skin burnt in the overcast sun. Only if you have adventured in the land of Ancaria and have forged a 25th level or higher character, will you be able to tackle the Underworld add-on. If you haven't achieved a character of this level, then you can use one of the two character classes that the game provides that are already prepared for the trials that await you, these two are the Daemon and the Dwarf. </blockquote>
<br>
Well, I'm not so sure all the "RPG faithful" would like this game. I enjoyed it for what it was after the <b>1.7 patch</b>, though.

I still haven't gotten much past... Umm... That first river town in Sacred. I should play that.

I honestly think Sacred Underworld gives the original Sacred some well-deserved improvements, namely engine and targetting system.
