How we rate the games?
Sacred Citadel is a 2.5D game. I didn't enjoy the game a lot, especially because it was 2.5D. I was expecting a game like 3D, but unfortunately this game left a lot to deserve. It was just another shoot em up game without any new idea. I might like some of the visuals in the menu and that is all.
The gameplay was not fun, not because the game was unplayable, but because it was just like all other 2.5D games without any new way of gameplay. To tell the truth, I found the game quite boring because there was nothing to enjoy. For those who play for the first time in life 2.5D games, this might be awesome, but for you who have already played such games, it was just a copy paste of the same ideas.
I would say that other games out there are far better than this one, so just don't try this game! You played as a guy who could make some moves, attack enemies, level up and that's all. You did have bosses though, but it wasn't fun at all, just boring bosses who had same moves after some seconds. Also, the controls were weird, since no games out there use commands like this game. You could pick up weapon upgrades, use level up points at the end of each level and have 3 different attacks.
The graphics were ok for such a game, I wouldn't disagree on anything. Also, there is no need for a powerful GPU since this game just uses 2.5D, instead of 3D. I was shocked to see the same enemies spawning in and out, but if you really ask me, I have better enjoyed Teenage Mutant Ninja on Nintendo 9999 which had at least some better sounds and compared to this game, it was far better.
The optimization was ok, not because it was a tough job to do, but because the game was on 2.5D. Even when this game had to show off as a good game, they messed up with the controls. This leaves a bad taste because the game feels like a true waste of time. I was amazed at how bad the controls where, but at least you can change them. Even though, this doesn't make a great sense.
The sound of the game wasn't good at all and it felt somewhat the same as TMNT.
Overall the game was bad, not fun, not enjoyable and its developers have to work a lot before releasing such crap games.
