Bit about Torchlight

Posted by HumanityPlague (251 posts) -

I like Torchlight, quite a bit.  I have it for the PC, and played the mage guy, beating that game at least twice, and enjoying it.  I'm interested in the Xbox 360 port also, since the Diablo PS1 port failed on an epic level.
 
One thing though:  Torchlight is NOT a super-unique thing on the Xbox 360.  It's a Diablo-style, hack & slash, RPG, to be sure.  But a few of those already existed on the 360, namely with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2.  True, both those games didn't have "loot" (in a traditional sense), or randomly-generated dungeons, but seriously, those 3 games are basically the same.
 
It's NOT a bad genre either, as it's classical, and works, and is fun.  But for everyone saying how Torchlight is SO unique, and fresh on the 360, wake the fuck up.
