Reviews

"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

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.

New Content

This release also includes new game content!

  • The NetherRealm tileset - new NetherRealm dungeons can be found via portals throughout the world
  • New Monsters
  • New armor sets
  • New weapons
  • New pets - including the Headcrab!
  • New endgame map content
  • Some additional new dungeons in New Game plus modes in large overworld areas

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.
  • New User Interface - Torchlight II boasts a new and improved user interface, designed to be easier than ever for new players to pick up and play. This intuitive interface ensures you can focus on playing the game the way you want to.
  • Open World - We're not only in the town of Torchlight anymore! Explore vast overland areas and multiple hub towns, fight through rain, snow, day and night. Our level randomization ensures new layouts, paths, loot, and monsters every time you play.
  • New Game Plus - In New Game Plus, the game's not over until you say it is. Once you've beaten Torchlight II's primary campaign, you can start again with the same character for a significantly greater challenge. You'll keep all of the skills, gold, and gear you worked so hard for!
  • Pets & Fishing - These popular features make their return in Torchlight II in improved form. More choices, better effects, and your pet will still make the run to town to sell your loot so you don’t have to.

This game's controls are a mess. Every time I load up the game the right mouse button is using a different skill due to hotkeys I didn't press, or item names stop showing up by default. Having to google how to fix issues that started on their own seems like a joke. I don't even get why there's a UI button to click for toggling item names on by default when there are a bunch of settings in the options menu about items.

Also, you can't FULLY respec your character's stats or skills, so if you mess up or want to change your build you have to start a new character from scratch. That's the kind of crap I'd expect from some freemium online game. It feels cheap to see that in a paid product, and pretty disappointing TBH.

man this game is addicting plus the mods are fun like the diablo 2 ui mod and x2 exp-x10gold. boss mod that drops epic gear at low levels this game is and will be my diablo game there is just so much to explore other than diablo 3 which you can beat in a day and a half with friends or 2 days. this game is just big and makes you want to explore areas on the map, you can enchant weapons and armor have pets that follow you after you create your character and pet look. several classes to choose from plus the modded classes you can download from the workshop. this game runs perfectly on older cards that i know of like the 500 series -900 series GTX-980 Graphics cards, very optimized and is 60fps its point and click like diablo 3 so many players i guess will try to avoid this game there is no controller support that i know of my XB360 wont work on it so keyboard and mouse. sound is amazing but i usually have it in my headphones while i watch netflix and play this game.

This was the game we touted would kill Diablo III, and for a time... it seemed like it was -much- better. And it was! It's got a bit more of a cartoony look, but it's a very solid game in this genre. The fights are challenging and fun, and the loot satisfies that jonesing itch that we gamers get for loot.

However, if you're comparing it now to what Diablo III has become... you'll be dissapointed. Diablo III's continuing "seasons" as well as armor asthetics and variety has a bit more to offer.

Still worth a look, and you can't beat the pricetag though.

Good game, so easy to lose hours and hours in. One of the better APRGs I've ever come across, no surprise there, really, given the team behind this game, but it's the community of players that keep me coming back for more. Most are friendly and helpful. Or even better, get a couple of friends, and jump right in.

Even on solo, there's a dozen hours of good, solid fun. It's not difficult to master, but always have fun trying out new builds and gear. Get it, worth every cent and then some.

A nice little game for the fast fun not only for breaks of leisure, it appeals to your inner drooling loot maniac.
So much loot you just dont know what to pick, as in most games of this type storrage is important...
...more storrage even more.

Play this game with a buddy or more folks to tag along.
Compare your loot ( I know you want to!), exchange your loot and point out some unlucky fellow to store the Loot ( notice the cap ).
But do not worry, its not all about the loot to get even better loot, its about having fun while blowing monsters to kingdom come and grabing all the shinys.

So yeaa, if you want to mindless slaughter hordes of nasty critters and grabing shiny stuff, trinkets and whatnot...
...this is the game for you :)

This game is just neat - it can be a Sunday hack'n'slash passtime, and it can be a real grinder. I am happy I finally have a computer I can play T2 with ease, as I spend many hours with it's prequel and was quite hyped to play this one.
I love the multum of possibilities of seemingly narrow range of heroes, and I'm all about doing those hybrid characters.
Two things are a big minus to me: firstly, building a successful summoner class takes quite a lot of time in higher difficulty modes. Secondly, Act III monsters are just cheap (besides the epic boss fights) and take away much of the lore's momentum - so if you feel doubts in Act III, keep pushing until You reach those Dwarven ruins. Either way, I think it's very easy to ommit how wonderful of a universe Torchlight has, with it's little details that can slip your attention if you play too fast. It's a lore very prone to development and alteration, and I'm also happy to see some very lore-friendly mods.
Awesome game worth a recommendation!

I love Torchlight and Torchlight II. Having said that I have to admit I loved Diablo III as well. The mobs are easier in Torchlight. The characters and classes including the add on ones make for a great game. I am hopeful they bring out a Torchlght III that improves on the gameplay further, not that there is much for which to ask. I kept going back to Torchlight until I got Torchlight II and now, despite over a hundred games, Torchlight II pulls me back in. It plays like a dream on my 2011 MBPro, which cannot be said of similar aged games.
Thank you for making such a great one Runic Games. Thanks also to the people involved in adding classes/characters so the original game could be so much more.

so i've put a few hundred hours into it and decided its time for a review.

so its basically diablo 2.5 only in a cartoony environment. right from the start you feel powerful and everything explodes when it dies and its just very pleasing if your a fan of arpg's. the combat is very fun and there are tons of unique spells that i have not ecnountered in other arpgs. yes there are generic fireballs and damage buffs, but there are also interesting spells like summon gunbots which is a little npc robot that follows your character for a short time and shoots enemies.

one interesting thing is that your spells get more powerful with your level so a level 1 spell could have 50 damage at character level 1 and 500 damage at level 100. this is very useful when putting "value" points into spells.

the multiplayer has some issues like random long loading times and with 3 or more players spamming spells at large groups of mobs it can cause your fps to drop, but overall a very solid experience. the mp community is on the smaller side but overall they are friendly and like to help you out. most of the higher level characters will just jump in a world and start passing out free gear to the new players if you dont bug them asking for frees.

speaking of fps drops when playing single player it runs fantastic. almost non existant loading times and fps stays consistant. the overall system load is pretty minimal and should run on most systems.

in the future if i ever get board of playing unmodded i can start downloading mods off the steam workshop like synergies that from what i've heard will completely change the game or maybe one of the custom class mods that mix and match spells of the vanilla classes into 1 theme'd class. i eagerly await the day a median xl style mod is made for torchlight.

overall its worth every bit of the $20 price (current as of 5/2016) and if you can get it cheaper on sale it becomes a no brainer purchase.

Never thought myself to like these kind of games, in which I mean just killing huge amount of enemies and collecting all the loot constantly, Luckily the price I paid for this game was enough enjoyment to last me to actually finish the game. Many great mods to further make this game funner and harder and also able to play with friends makes this game able to replayed over and over. I don't see myself playing this game ever again since I finished the main story but for others this game can be played until you actually feel you are powerful enough.
