The game received "mixed" reviews, according to video game review aggregator Metacritic. The Escapist's Jim Sterling wrote that fans of the series could be disappointed and fans of the hack and slash genre would prefer other titles. Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw said the game "utterly and completely failed at comedy, action, entertainment and game design" and named it as his fifth worst game of 2014. He also stated in his review that "nothing is more guaranteed to grate than comedy falling flat with smug, blissful unawareness. A grim death march through forced kookiness is worse than a thousand Ride to Hells. " He later noted in the footnotes for the same review that he didn't think Sacred 3 was in any way worse than Ride to Hell: Retribution, just that Ride to Hell "left him in a better mood".
