Torchlight II video review

GameZone
28 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Torchlight II captures all the flavor and excitement of the original game - while expanding the world and adding the features players wanted most, including online and LAN co-op multiplayer. Torchlight II is fast, fun, and filled to the brim with action and loot.

  • 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.

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.

Torchlight II

Strategy Informer

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I'm giggling like a schoolchild. I really shouldn't, but so far, my Beserker has completely failed to die. I've gotten him in all sorts of situations, and I've gotten damn close, but my little digital avatar, bloodthirsty mite that he is... refuses to quit.

The going gets tough in Torchlight II

Quarter to Three
26 September 2012
  • Excerpt: My first playthrough in Torchlight II was with an outlander, a ranged class that relies on guns. I set the difficulty level to veteran, which is one notch above normal. This was partly because the first Torchlight was forgiving to a fault, and partly because I wasn’t eager to repeat the experience...

Torchlight II is a poor man’s Diablo that’s rich in content but not originality (review)

VentureBeat
20 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Torchlight II is undoubtedly worth the $20 price, and it’s high on replay value with new classes to discover. The problems it does have are mostly minor, but it’s not for gamers looking for an involved story. And in some places, it could use a little more depth.
  • Pros: A consistent and polished experience In terms of gameplay, Torchlight II (out today on Steam for PC) is exactly what you’d expect from the genre. You fight near-endless hordes of enemies and bosses as you explore different territories and collect loot, upgrading your gear and distributing your st...
  • Cons: A raw story Your goal in the game is simple: Stop the Alchemist from permanently upsetting the balance of the world. But the rest of the story is an afterthought. It’s hard to feel immersed in the world’s troubles or care about the different races. The cutscenes exacerbate this issue. Klei Entert...

19 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Riding on the success of its predecessor, Torchlight II kicks open the door of fall releases with cartoonish swagger. A title that promises a solid dungeon crawl while at the same time not taking itself too seriously, the visually pleasing Torchlight II promises a great many things prior to its...
