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.
Excerpt: Torchlight II was the highly anticipated sequel to the original Torchlight which features both familiar gameplay, and some great new additions. With more classes, more pets, more loot and more action, you'll undoubtedly get a lot out of Torchlight II .
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.
Review: Torchlight II delivers a fantastic experience from beginning to end
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.
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.
Conclusion: Torchlight II is addictive, imagination-fuelled goodness. It never gets boring and its “just five more minutes” value is second to none. It may not have an engaging story but I don’t think anyone twatting a zombie pirate called ‘One-Eyed Willy’ with a giant wrench will miss it.
