I'm Replaying Sacrifice, my passion for it kickstarted by its inclusion on the Good Old Games website launch list. When I first played Sacrifice, every aspect of the game flew straight through me, and into the darker corners my brain.
Whenever anyone mentioned it, I'd know it was good, but I wouldn't have the foggiest why. I knew it was an RTS, and you had to defile the tombs of your enemies, and the phrase 'Phalanx Formation' stuck in my head, but pressed for details, I was utterly clueless.
Playing through the tutorial again (I decide whether I like development companies based on their tutorials, and Sacrifice's is lovely) those dormant memories sprang to the surface. With the excellent and precocious RTS/RPG gameplay, the soul-harvesting, the balloon-headed god Stratos, and the suspiciously Earthworm-esque James, the game is as loaded with humour as it is with testing.strategy and blasphemous desecration.
It's great to have had this understated gem gently nudged back into my active gaming vocabulary.
