"Torchlight II is a sprawling, ambitious game that does one thing very, very well. It gives you a world you'll want to explore, filled with enemies you'll love to destroy."

- Kotaku

"Torchlight is a vibrant, fun, steampunky world, and exploring it is an absolutely addictive pleasure."

4.5/5 - Joystiq

"Not to be missed by anyone who considers themselves a fan of the proud tradition of action RPGs"

5/5 - Gamespy

"With most games of this caliber retail at $60, it might sound ludicrous that Torchlight 2 only costs $20 – because it is."

9/10 - Machinima

"Grab the game, grab some friends, and get to clicking."

9/10 - Destructoid

Steam Workshop

Torchlight 2 now fully supports Steam Workshop. A new launcher synchronizes any mods you have subscribed to, and lets you customize their activation state and loading priority. In addition, when playing Internet games in the lobby, you will be able to filter modded games by mod combination, and with a single button click, subscribe to those mods. Torchlight 2 will then restart, synchronize them, and activate them before returning you to the game.

When playing modded games, you can view your mod history, any previously played mods, and the impact disabling mods may have on your character.

We've tried to make the process as seamless as possible, with a focus on allowing modded multiplayer games with a minimum of fuss.


GUTS is our in-house development tool, now fully integrated with Steam Workshop. You can publish directly to Steam Workshop when you compile your mod, making it available immediately for others to play.

We've also added a special tool to GUTS designed to convert pre-GUTS mods into the official mod format, with an eye toward making the transition much easier for our ambitious early modders.

You can learn more about using GUTS here.

About This Game

The award-winning action RPG is back, bigger and better than ever! Torchlight II takes you back into the quirky, fast-paced world of bloodthirsty monsters, bountiful treasures, and sinister secrets - and, once again, the fate of the world is in your hands!
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. Adventure solo or online with your friends!

Key Features:

  • Multiplayer - Play co-op with your friends via LAN or over the Internet for free. No subscriptions, no item sales. Our new matchmaking service lets you find friends, start new games, and join existing games. And, as always, you can play single-player offline as well.
  • Customizable Characters - Players will create and customize a character from one of four brand new classes. Each class can be played as either male or female, with customized cosmetic features and looks to make each individual character stand out. All new skills and loot give loads of opportunity for unique character builds.
  • Moddability - TorchED, the Torchlight II editor, will give players the ability to create their own mods, adding even more content to the world. Have your friends download the same mod and play together. TorchED will be available as a separate download very shortly after launch.

Man I feel like such an idiot. When I first saw this game on steam a long time ago I said to myself. "It seems to be a crappy eagle vision version of Dota 2" No offense to any Dota 2 fans... I ended ignoring Torchlight 2's existence for about a year.

About a week ago I saw this game on sale and I bought it well because it was on sale xD
Man, I feel so STUPID as to dislike this game on its appearance.


- Amazing loot selection. Your not just selling every single item that doesn't appeal to you.
- Freedom of weapon customizations. Maybe you want to have your Berserker use dual pistols or whatever you feel like using.
- Interesting bosses. Your not just fighting a giant blob...
- Most of the time, you use your mouse to move and attack so you rarely need to use your keyboard, which is great for those who want to not in that way...
-Beautiful settings. (Realistic forests, dungeons, etc).
- The game runs very well with all settings turned the highest. Unless you have a windows 98 or something which can't run this game xD (OBVIOUSLY)
- Max level is 100 so you can show off and get a bunch of characters to lv 100 if you wish.


- Sometimes the quest marker really ♥♥♥♥es me off. Sometimes the quest marker will direct me to a dungeon that I have already explored. I end up going inside, the quest marker tells me to go back out. WHAT THE ♥♥♥♥?!?!? Though this rarely happens, but when it does, it is on a side quest mission. This was for me though, I have no idea if the game will be like that for you guys.

Overall I rate this game 9/10

IT HAS BROKEN ACHIEVEMENTS! So if you're planning to 100% complete this game, you can give up now and just enjoy the game.

A top-down ARPG that works very similarly to Diablo 2.

There are 4 classes to choose from, each with their own unique skill trees. You can have 2 players playing the same class but invested in totally different skill tree hence different playstyle. However, there are only a few optimal builds for end-game.

The story/plot could be more interesting if it isn't presented by walls and walls of texts. I have beaten several playthroughs but all the time I just skip past all the dialogues and texts. They bores me.

The graphics are quite cartoonish and colorful, gives some relaxing feel while playing this game. The audios blends in with the game perfectly.

After you have beaten the game, you can always try new game+ with harder mobs, or replay the dungeons (mapworks) over and over again for harder mobs and better loot. There is not much stuff to do after you beat the game except farming for gears, just like every other loot-based game.

One thing I find it unpleasant is that in higher levels, you cannot reset your skill points to try out other builds. So you will need to be very careful when assigning skill points in the earlier games. Although there is an unofficial workaround for it, I'd still hope that the devs will add in this kind of feature.

It has plenty of mods in the Steam workshop.

Multiplayer is player-hosted. Some of the loading screen will take a loooooong wait if any of the player is having bad network. This really annoy a lot of gamers and there is no fix for it. It really depends a lot on luck and careful terrain transition if you're playing with friends.

Overall, this is a good game, but the bugs and glitches made the experience less enjoyable. This however, is a cheaper alternative for Diablo 3.

My score: 7/10

I personally enjoyed the first one more, but this is almost as good.
They added a nice touch with references and cameos from the original.
Just wish there was a class I actually enjoyed playing.

Before buying this game, you need to know that there is no respec option in this game before you get yourself a mod to achieve this function. However, in order to play with others, you and other players need same mods to connect to each other. So, you might need to read guides about different builds of different classes before starting your first character or you might only be able to play with others who have same respec mods if you want to respec your character to try out your own build. To me, it kinda ruins the fun when the original game doesn't allow you to do a total respec while figuring my own builds and adjusting attribute points and skill points are incredibly fun to me. What's worse, after having some mods, it's really inconvenient for me to find people to play with from time to time. You might need to have few friends starting playing with you so that you can decide mods for all in order to do multi-player in the future.
However, considering that it's only 20 bucks and you can get it much less than the original price during the discount, I say it's a good game worthing its price. Also, if you don't really care about builds and you're totally fine with reading guides, the original game without any mods would be really fun to play. After you get tired of original game, mods like synergies would be another choice in late game. In conclusion, I highly suggest this game to everybody who loves Arpg style.

I'm a gentle hearted and surprisingly combat ready enigneer, wandering the increasingly dangerous environs on a life long mission to enact revenge on the mighty urn. I was orphaned as a child by a band of roving urns, and after years of grueling training by my adoptive alpaca family, I've finally started my reign of terror against the suckers.

I'm not a huge fan of games of this genre, such as Diablo or Titan Quest, though they have their moments. Despite that, I had a ton of fun playing this game. Its got a good deal of content and replayablility, and is a lot of fun to play multiplayer or alone. Loot is interesting, charachters are unique, and the overall experience is a lot of fun. Doesn't hurt that it not ony has mod support, but mod support for mutliplayer games as well!

You know that attachement you feel towards your alpacca when you stroke it's magical fur in order to feel better about yourself? It's really an dirty feeling, but it's a dirty feeling worth feeling. Like Bananna's, all in all.
Buy it for the alpacca.

The first Torchlight, while being an indie tribute to the original Diablo, still managed to feel like its own game. By taking place in a single stratified dungeon, it has a very arcadey feel, with an emphasis on making you feel powerful and useful right from the start. There was enough variety in the weapons and enemies to keep you interested, but with a small enough scope to allow for ever-refined runs down to the depths. The retirement system meant you could roll your own legacy, complete with an ever-improving heirloom weapon or armour, adding notch to your lineage every night if you played hard and fast. It was lonely, with no multiplayer, but user-created mods that streamlined things and an ever-faithful mutating pet could suffice.

In contrast, Torchlight II feels too self-aware of its positioning as “the alternative to Diablo III”. It’s too aware of its status of being the David to Diablo III’s Goliath, thus aiming to “beat” Diablo III directly in two areas it knows the competition has trouble: features and pricing. That said, Torchlight II may sacrifice too much of its own style in an attempt to ensure a certain laundry list of features. It feels like Runic fell into the trap of thinking that people appreciated Torchlight for being “the little Diablo”, and so focused too much on making sure Torchlight II hit all those Diablo II notes. Even so, while it may not be a unique medley, there’s no denying Runic plays the tune effortlessly.

Some elements of Runic’s own thinking on the genre does shine through, like the refined pet system. The idea of having a pet that fights with you, and is well-trained enough to handle selling your junk in town, isn’t new. You can find the system wholesale in WildTangent’s Fate, which precedes Torchlight by almost half a decade. It’s no surprise though, since Fate was designed by the same person who went on to design Torchlight. For the sequel, your pet has learned a new trick: reading a shopping list. You can specify up to four consumables, like Town Portal scrolls and Mana Potions, that the pet should bring back from town if you send it off to sell the junk you packed in its trunk. It’s a small thing, but small things add up over time.

Four new character classes replace the original three, and each has its own “system” bar that fills up when damaging enemies.. The Engineer uses heavy steampunk-themed weapons, which get powered up when your bar is full. The Berserker uses animal-themed special powers and super-punchy-fist action, and gets all-critical-hits for a while when their bar is full. The Embermage casts spells and gets 12 seconds to cast spells free of charge when their special bar is full. Lastly, the Outlander uses ranged weapons and tribal magic, getting improved dodge and critical chance when their bar fills up. All classes can use all weapon types, for the most part, though you will find some items with class-restricting affixes.

Where Torchlight took place in, well, the town of Torchlight, the sequel starts by destroying that town, not just symbolically. The cute and vapid plot (one of the three original classes from the first game goes nuts, powers up and starts sucking the life-force from very-important guardian animals) acts as barely-sufficient scaffolding to support your reason for going from place to place. Not that we need a reason: the world is made of loot. The game spans across four acts, following the overly conventional structure of grassy-mountains, desert, foresty-swamp and <removed for spoilers>. New Game Plus replaces the Retirement system, letting you restart the game with the same character and stats as when you finished, but with ever-increasing monster difficulty. You also gain access to a Mapworks vendor that lets you buy level-specific randomly-generated maps (an excellent idea that Path of Exile also implements), giving you endless replayability, in theory.

An awesome Diablo-esque style game, although a different take on the art style, gameplay wise it is similar. Story mode is a good 15+ hours, and we're them provided with more extra maps with probably endless hours of content. Coop is really seamless, and the enemies tend to be more challenging. A bit grindy, but if you love loots, this game is definitely for you. A must buy in my opinion, when on sale is better. In fact, get the 4 pack, give it to your friends, and have fun that way. Also integration with steam works provide a diversity in experience. a lot of customization can be done with mods that could either increase difficulty or overhaul the look of the game. Honestly, GET THE GAME ALREADY!

Overall : 8.5/10

Pros : + Great overall fun.
+ Lots of loot and gear.
+ Quirky colourful graphics.
+ Pets add a nice touch to gameplay.

Cons : - No simple way to easily respec ALL skill point/attributes.

The original game was good but Torchlight 2 is much bigger, better and more fun to play. More loot, more areas to explore and improved greatly when playing with friends.
