Torchlight II Keeps Casual RPGs Shining

GIN
19 November 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Torchlight II allows for online co-op for up to six players. Each player in a co-op game sees their own loot, removing the often contentious problem of greedy players snapping it up and refusing to share. Enemy strength scales based on the number of players present.
  • Pros: More
  • Cons: Story is a bit weak, not much innovation
