"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.

This game reminds me of the old Diablo. The Mod support is great and adds more to do once you get tired of the vanilla game.

So this game plays like diablo from what I've heard. I don't know if that's true or not seeing as I've never played a diablo game, but I wouldn't be supprised. Anyways Ifyou want to get your kid diablo, but don't like the blood or gore or satan like imagiry, get them this instead. Also synergies mod is a must.

The Good: Tons of great loot dished out often, tough boss fights, varied dungeon and enemies, the pet system is revolutionary for the genre, strong classes, a lot of abilities to acquire, $15

The Bad: Forgettable story, gets boring after so long (that's just the genre though), can be down right hard later on requiring a partner, underwhelming graphics

With fans being so upset with Diablo III, I have to first say turn here. Torchlight II builds upon the already excellent engine and adds more content, a lengthy campaign, and tons of great loot. The dungeon crawler genre is all about the great loot, leveling your character, and fighting tough bosses. Once you get to the last couple of dungeons you will be guzzling potions like crazy. The game is non-stop action with no breaks. While Diablo III may have larger budget in the millions, a better story, and better graphics, Torchlight II delivers on what the fans want; loot, dungeons, and bosses.

You can pretty much forget the story. It is told in three pieces and isn't very interesting. Something about Nephilim invading the world and you trying to stop it? I honestly don't know. I lost track because the story is broken up too much and told in between three large acts so you forget what happens. What does matter is the action. You can choose between 4 strong classes that are typical for the genre. Mage, duelist, warrior, and a middle ground guy. Each class has a slew of great abilities that you actually won't completely acquire in one play through. I chose the duelist and stuck with akimbo pistols. There was even a perk called Akimbo! There's something here for every type of player.

The loot feels nearly endless and it is actually good. There are boss chests, large chests, and just regular ones spread throughout. You don't have to worry about getting good loot. Of course most of it ends up being junk, but when you beat a boss you will get something good. You can equip rings, belts, shields, leg and body armor, helmets, you name it. You can enchant items that add random stat increases, add jewels, even disenchant items to regain money. There was even an option to use junk loot to create new items like potions. I'm glad there are a lot of options for the main part of the game; the damn loot.

I found the dungeons and enemies to be plentiful and varied. I never really got bored. Each area has small, large, and champion enemies that get tougher to fight. Some times you will be swarmed by over a dozen, but that is the whole point. Every step led to an enemy and I felt the urge to uncover every part of every map. I always found a secret somewhere or a new champion to beat. Doing this helps you level up faster to make the game easier. There are side quests that are fun, and some down right tough bosses. A couple at the very end had to be beaten 2-3 times over which is a challenge all on its own.

When you die Torchlight punishes you with gold instead of lame armor damage. Resurrecting at the entrance is the cheapest option, but doing so in town is free, just inconvenient. The best one is resurrecting on the spot but costs 3 times as much as at the entrance. This really makes you think if it is worth it or not. Usually I only resurrected on the spot in the middle of a large overworld area where backtracking would take forever.

You still get a pet this time around, you can equip armor and other items on it. You can have your pet take your loot back for you, sell it, and now you can give it a list of items like potions and scrolls to bring back for you. You lose your pet for 2 minutes, but this is a life saver. Let your pet do the tedious work while you continue fighting. I found this almost revolutionary for the genre which is already one of the least updated in the gaming world. If you want one reason to play this, the loot is what kept me going. I wanted to acquire new abilities, and get the best weapons and armor. There is also great balancing in multiplayer which is what most people are going to play.

Overall, Torchlight II is a lot of fun and has all the genre staples that people want, lots of great loot that is dished out often, tough boss fights, and a lot of strong varied enemies. Sure, the game isn't a technical hound, but who needs that for this type of game? The story kind of sucks, but in the end we just want to click away and kill stuff. Diablo III and TL2 are always being compared for a reason. TL2 did everything everyone expected D3 to do and it didn't. For even a fraction of the cost of D3 this game is a steal.

~Score: 8.5/10

I like it.

No seriously, I really like it.
It great fun with and without mods. However, I have to admit, that I expected way more at first, and was surprised when the game actually ended. But who cares, it was still fun.
I just love these type of games, and the devs are really nice.
I asked them to remove the bugged Achievements through an email, and they actually did it right after I sent it.
Which other Dev-Team would be so cool and actually listen to someone as unknown and annoying as me? None. I tell ya.

Without Mods:
Playing the Without Mods is great fun, tho it is way more fun if you invite a couple of buddies to your game, increase the difficulty and then fight together in a team through hordes of enemies, and cry out your eyes in C Major when attempting to kill a Boss.

With Mods:
Playing with mods is in my opinion even more fun than playing without. The modding community is still putting alot of work into their mods, which range from cheaty-Increased Gold and XP mods to new Classes, Pets and a bunch of more stuff. +1 for Mod Support! It's always great!

TL;DR Buy the game a bunch of times, send some copies to your friends, install a huge load of interesting gameplay-expanding mods, and just simply have fun.

If you like Diablo style games then you should check this out. It's a lot more cartoony looking (which help the graphics age better) but don't let it's looks fool you. The game is straight up, can be hardcore, fully featured, and with TONS of loot. It's a blast to play with friends, or go solo. I highly recommend this game to any fans of the genre.

I have been looking for a DiabloIII replacement and found this little gem in my search through steams now very sizable library of hack-and-slash titles and i have not been disapointed.

Through at the time of this review I have only logged a lowly 15hours of game time i can honestly say this is more than a match for the Blizzard title.

If the characters, pets, weapons and armours seem basic i need to point out to you that almost everything can be expanded thanks to the steam workshop. The gameplay is as addicting as you would expecet from this genre with that satisfying feeling when a critical it lands and turns your enemies into a fountain of gore.

And yes, if you too were looking for a Diablo replacement... this can in fact -PLAY OFFLINE-

A Fun action RPG game... If you enjoyed Diablo II, you'll almost certainly enjoy Torchlight as well.

The only real con I can think is that it can take a while for your character build to "come online". i.e.: it takes a few levels for you to have a good selection of cool skills and gear, but once you do, the game is really very fun for anyone who enjoys the genre. Fortunately, it doesn't take long to level up, specially in the early game.

Torchlight II is "Diablo-like" game. But it's as good as "Diablo III".
-Nice gameplay
-Random locations (map is generated randomly, locations too but u will always have same quest/caves in location but different position)
- Mods, Mods,mods.
- Multiplayer
- Great Classes
- Great skill trees
- U cant "♥♥♥ up" your character if u dont go like "full vitality,int"
-Can be boring alone if you dont care about story.
-If you start 1st playthrough with mods its bad idea.

I cant say story was great or not beacuse i didnt care about it xD

I rate it 8.5/10 :)

I'm playing 'blind' with the Synergies Mod (because I read so many good things) so my review is based on the game with that mod, as I've not actually played the Vanilla version.

After playing the original Torchlight and hating it due to a massive number of design flaws, I wasn't expecting much for this game. But I am really impressed at the changes made. All of the problems the first game suffered with have now been fixed, and it's a really enjoyable experience.

- Fun as heck
- Glorious loot!
- Levelling system is simple but interesting
- Nice and bright (why are ppl complaining about this? It isn't Diablo 3!)

- Combat is repetitive, but I haven't found this ruins the game
- Thanks to RNGesus, you sometimes get better loot at the start, and the 'special' loot winds up worthless
- Would be nice if your pet had a bit more storage

- Sometimes during a mob you CANNOT see your mouse pointer and/or character
- Difficulty is weird. It can be too easy and then BAM. You randomly insta-die (RNGesus again?).
- The game doesn't pause on inventory or levelling screens (note: I have a sneaky feeling this is the Synergies Mod, I don't know if the Vanilla version does this)

Anyway, it's fun. I got it on sale for like £2 during a Humble sale, and honestly I probably would've paid full price for it.

It's a loot-tastic, action-packed, hack-fest-extravaganza!

Torchlight 2 absolutely nails the isometric-camera-action-RPG genre. From a wonderfully colorful, artistically unique world to near-perfect pacing, this is a gem worth owning, if you have even a remote interest in the genre.

Totally uber-awesome game!

Overall it was a fun hack and slash, Diablo style game. Like the borderlands games, I would recommend that you play this game cooperatively with friends. If you played the first Torchlight game, the second is much more polished and fun to play. If it goes on sale, order some pizza and drinks, grab some friends, and pool some money together for the 4-pack and have a good time.

-Good color color pallet choices for the cartoony art style
-All classes felt unique and fun, all were very viable in single player and multiplayer (a huge improvement from Torchlight 1) [seriously, this felt like one of the best class balances I've had in a long time]
-Compared to Torchlight 1, there was improved UI customizations, runspeed/navigation tweaks, etc. (generally more user friendly and comfortable to do various things)
-The music choices were generally decent (though I haven't played in a while and may not remember this aspect the best)

-Storyline was sparse, but was functional/adequate. There weren't nearly as many cutscenes as I thought there would be or would have liked there to be. The written dialogue wasn't very engrossing, but it set the premise for the character actions in the game.
-If you liked the darker/grittier visual styles of Diablo, Path of Exile, or The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the cartoony artstyle may be offputting to you

I wish i had more time to commit to Torchlight 2. What can i say. The story is solid, you can modify your character to pretty much any type of combat system you like and you can play with lots and lots of friends. Balanced difficulty, wide range of weapons, enemies and bosses. This game deserves your commitment.
