Puts the 'action' in Action-RPG 0

Runic takes the 'action' in this action-RPG to a new level of mayhem. Take a look at what makes Torchlight II such a high-octane experience and why that intense focus on the action puts it in a category of its own.Source...

Making Repetition Fun 1

Call me a hipster, but I did not enjoy Diablo 3. Granted, there's no real way you can objectively call Diablo 3 a terrible game, but I still couldn't enjoy it. The problem I find with this particular genre, that being isometric ARPGs, is that they are very repetitive just by nature alone. The combat is overtly simple, as a lot of the time you just mash the mouse keys and two or three keys on your keypad, if the situation really calls for it. Taking the boredom out of the repetition is where Torc...

Torchlight 2 (or expecting the expected) 0

While I'm sure they didn't bear ill will, there must've been at least a thought floating around in one of Runic Games' members when Diablo 3 was released. Seems that long development times and endless hype doesn't equal unanimous acclaim but unlike the travesty that was Duke Nukem Forever, Diablo was not an atrocious game, just one reeking of disappointment for many. So with Torchlight 2, the more fully fleshed-out sequel and including many new and better features, the action RPG player must've ...

Torchlight II Review 0

It's been a while since I've wanted to sink so much time into a hack and slash game, but just as the original Torchlight did, this one was no exception. I actually felt like this was a more polished version of the first. You once again have to go out into the world and save it from the Alchemist who has been corrupted and is trying to open up a portal of pure evil. You'll have to slay many beasts and monsters, but if you're brave enough and strong enough you will see that you are just what the ...

One of the Best Diablo-Likes Out There 0

So, chances are you have played a game like Torchlight II, as the game itself is very iteraitve of the tried-and-true Diablo formula. If that is the case, when why in the world would you play Torchlight II?Simple: Torchlight II has streamlined the experience. It takes a lot of the annoying/boring things about the genre, and either eliminates it or makes it less time consuming. Inventory full? Slap it on your pet and sent it town. Out of potions or identifying scrolls? Your pet can pick them up ...

Follows ARPG blue print very well, but following is all it does 0

Torchlight is one of those games that its high praise and popularity always makes me wonder. It was an ordinary Diablo clone you see every year without any special features, (Actually, it lacked multi-player which is an important feature for this kind of game. ) and all of its other aspects like visuals, classes, story, characters, dialogues, quests, etc. were either standard, derivative, mediocre or below average. Why it was treated like it was the next big thing while there are many other clon...

Torchlight 2 Review 0

Torchlight 2 is an action rpg developed by Runic Games and published by Perfect World. The game was released also on Steam and will be available for Mac OS sometime after release. Torchlight 2’s biggest feature is that now features peer to peer multiplayer. Is this added multiplayer feature enough to make Torchlight 2 complete with king of the action rpg genre Diablo 3?StoryThe story in Torchlight 2 is the weakest aspect of this game unfortunately. The story takes place years after the end of To...

Torchlight II is one of the best examples of a dungeon raider 0

The first Torchlight was a surprise hit for Runic Games back in 2009. This was helped by the generous price of the game and the fact that two of the designers were co-designers for Blizzard’s Diablo and the fanatically praised sequel, Diablo II. These guys knew how to make a desirable loot-based game. Even with the success, the game itself was limited to single player and featured one massive dungeon that took place over 35 floors. An infinite, generated dungeon did open up after completing the ...
