Torchlight II

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Torchlight II was, unfortunately, subject to a number of delays. Originally set for release back in 2011, it's only now become available for purchase. I'm happy to say the wait was worth it. It's a bit rough around the edges, but Torchlight II takes the successful formula of the original Torchlight (and its predecessors) and expands on it, without making any drastic changes.

Torchlight II Review

  • Summary: Torchlight II rests comfortably near the top of the short list of enjoyable ARPGs, and tops the list for most non-gamer-friendly in the traditionally demanding genre.
  • Pros: Light and accessible, Optional depth, 6-player co-op
  • Cons: Click clickity click, Not much of a story, No real surprises

  • Conclusion: Did a $20 Diablo II clone really wind up a better game than vaunted Diablo III ?
  • Pros: Finding that final piece of gear that completes a set.
  • Cons: Tossing out the 8 millionth piece of gear your character class can't use.

Torchlight II Keeps Casual RPGs Shining

GIN

  • Excerpt: When the original Torchlight was released in 2009, it was easy to simply write it off as another Diablo clone. It featured the same dungeon-crawling gameplay, a similar level-up system and a never-ending quest for loot. It was even developed by the same team that was responsible for Diablo and Diablo II. Yet there were differences between Torchlight and the Diablo series.

  • Summary: Torchlight II does so many things right, it's easy to overlook the flaws.
  • Pros: Great art style and music; the four classes offer distinct play styles; pets are even more versatile; new charge mechanic.
  • Cons: Respeccing you character is still a chore and has to be modded in; some areas of the overworld feel a little too large and empty of important landmarks.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Click click click. It's all about the rhythm. Click click click. Shoot, bash, backflip. Click click click. Loot loot loot. For all its detailed stats, loot, and skill trees, the Action RPG genre has never been about sophistication. While it is of course appreciated, in the end all that matters is the rhythm of the mayhem, death, and piles of loot. Everything else is just gravy. So does Torchlight II get the beat? Or is it a sloppy slush of ideas?

Review: Torchlight II delivers a fantastic experience from beginning to end

GameZone
23 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Fun. Addictive. Consistent. Action-packed. These are all words that describe Torchlight II and it’s not hard to see why one would think so considering what the game attempts to do, it does well. Although the dungeon-based loot genre saw a massive increase in interest due to Diablo III’s release earlier this year, Torchlight II is a remedy for those that found problems with the former game.

A Brighter Bulb?

  • Excerpt: Runic Games' Torchlight was released in late 2009 to largely positive reviews, perhaps held back from true greatness by a lack of multiplayer. Three years later, the second game has addressed this issue without losing any of the charm of the previous release, and in many places adding to it.
