Sacred Citadel Review

Sacred Citadel reminds me of games that hold a special place in my heart: The old side-scrolling action titles that riddled arcades and took up spots in my NES- and Genesis-era shelves in my younger days. Games like X-Men ArcadeTurtles in Time,Golden AxeStreets of Rage, and more come to mind when I’m playing through Deep Silver and Southend Interactive’s beat-‘em-up endeavor. But as much as the game gets me all nostalgic, it’s ultimately a short trip that doesn’t leave its own endearing mark the way those classics did years go.”
