"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.

Torchlight II is a dungeon crawler RPG, created by an indie developer Runic Games. In this review, I decided not to talk about the story of the game because I was not paying attention to the story (pretty much killing mobs to obtain legendary loot or leveling up) and it is really difficult to remember what happened so let's get on the review. The game's theme is robotic, magic wizardry and witchcraft. Once the player progresses the story (Acts) of the game, it will take you to different lands and it's completely random generated dungeons as well. There are 4 classes to choose from; Engineer, Outlander, Berserker and Embermage. The game's mechanics is obviously similar to Diablo's gameplay. The loot system, weapon add-ons, pet system are great. You can do the item micromanagement without going home by sending your pet to the home portal and sell the inventories you have been hoarding for you, so you can keep grinding on the fly. The skill system on each classes have unique skill trees. Including Active and Passive Skills. They have 7 Active skills each trees and 3 Passive skills (About 21 Active skills including Ultimate and 9 Passive skills). It's very accessible skill trees, you can build whatever you like. There is an end game content, like purchasing any random generated scroll map to level up and your fame level (to earn fame level, you kill any legendary monsters to earn EXP or XP and gain skill points.) You can do another play through or New Game Plus which is great additional, whatever floats your boat.

+ Pros
+ 4 classes with different skill trees
+ Replayability
+ Randomly Generated dungeons
+ Multiplayer with friends (even though there aren't plenty servers)
+ Gameplay mechanics
+ Mods are available to implement your game experience via Steam Workshop and Level Editor to create a map

- Cons
- The story is lacking and no one cares about the story since it's dungeon crawler genre.
- Servers are lacking due to the population of the game.

For the final review of the game, the gameplay mechanics are strongly familiar to Diablo III. The classes are great but I wish they have sub-classes. The content is limitless because of the mods, RNG dungeons on end game content. But no one cares about the storyline of the game and I found it shallow and snooze fest. The looting system of the game and all RPG aspects that make me want to grind more. The final score for this game is a 8 out of 10, a strong recommendation. I would recommend you Grim Dawn or Path of Exile (Free to Play game) if not.

Like Diablo and beautiful. Especially in multiplayer with your same level friends is quite fun. If you can choose right skills in the skill tree you will get more fun. Enjoy :)

What Diablo 3 Should have been. Not as complex as Path Of Exile, but it sure is amazing late game.
Definitely unbalanced for PvP, and the Mods are amazing with an amazing community. The multiplayer system could use a little bit of work, but runic games hit the head on the nail with this sequel.

What Is Torchlight II?

Torchlight II is one of those wildly popular Steam games which hardly requires any introduction for fans of isometric-style action RPG's. Developed by Runic Games in 2012 as a more polished and refined version of its previous incarnation (Torchlight), it is widely hailed and beloved by scores of fanatical gamers (well over 3 million+) for its many favorable similarities to the equally popular Diablo series.

The true hallmark of this title however, is that the sprawling world it offers to you on a very reasonably priced silver platter is a gorgeously inviting one awaiting to be explored to its fullest....tempting you with countless secrets to uncover & treasures to collect. In fact there is more loot to be found hidden within its myriad of locations than you could possibly wrap your mind around. It's easily one of those gems with which you can sink hundreds of hours into, since it offers level randomization for enhanced replayability inside of its open world which includes weather as well as day/night cycles incidentally.


Featuring a very tight local + online co-op mode (in addition to solo offline play), you'll soon notice that you will be introduced to a diverse bounty of seemingly never-ending quests & side-quests given to you by those who require your assistance in one way or another. And fortunately, you'll have a ferocious pet by your side to help out in battle as needed, one who even possesses its own inventory!

In addition to the exploration and loot collecting, your primary objective will be to battle against a wide assortment of variously menacing monsters as you gradually level up your character with more skills, gold, and gear during this compelling campaign. Action is very fluid, brisk, and energetic...with a satisfying number of both weapon upgrades and weapon types (including melee & guns) to keep you more than entertained.

Both your mana (ie. energy) and health bars will be depleted during combat, and must be replenished as necessary with collected vials which can be used up at any time.

Character customization is present, although somewhat limited and basic in scope I felt. It's probably the most glaring aspect of the game which could have been improved further still. Nonetheless, it is still present at least, and you'll have your choice of either male/female characters spread across 4 distinct classes: Embermage, Outlander, Berserker, Engineer.

Level design was quite impressive & varied in an overall sense, with some specific areas like the dungeons being especially atmospheric. It was quite a joy for me to explore every single nook & cranny of each individual section traversed as I hunted around for items to collect between waves of enemies....who themselves were sufficiently unique enough throughout the campaign so as to not feel repetitious in any way.

There is just so very much to do in the game, and even after investing a few quality hours into it, there was an undeniable feeling that I've still only barely scratched the surface as to what awaits me further into its story.


What I especially appreciated about the presentation, is that this world is surprisingly vibrant in color as opposed to being dreary & muted looking in appearance as some other such similar games are. Which is then reinforced furthermore by the distinctly cartoon-style graphics found here. This in turn is all neatly tied together by a very well-done lighting system which somehow breathes a sense of intriguing realism into this magical place. All in all, it is quite pleasant on the eyes and sports a unique charm to it. And best of all, there are an ample number of graphics options available for fine-tuning your display preferences.


Voice acting was definitely above par, and sounded quite slick for the many varied characters present. (Although at times I felt that your character's obsession with his depleted mana levels was a bit overly-repetitive!). Whereas music itself was mellow & symphonic in nature...wonderfully balancing out the mood of each particular scene in an appropriate manner. And finally, sound effects were more than adequate in accomplishing their task of enhancing immersion...especially so with delightful effects such as thunder reverberating through the rainy night, for example.


It fully is, and includes both trading cards and a whopping 119 achievements to be unlocked.


None available.


The vast collection of available mods via the Steam Workshop is where this game truly shines like no other. There are literally hundreds of them to choose from in every possible category imaginable, and quite honestly you could find pretty much anything your little heart desires here.

Verdict - 9/10

Torchlight II has to be one of the best values out there in ARPG's...because while it only costs a fraction of what its pricier triple-A competitors do, it nonetheless very much competes as one, and more importantly, feels like one with its overhauled & redesigned user-interface which was a breeze to use. Accessibility is fantastic here as well, showcasing a streamlined and mostly straight-forward character leveling system which I greatly appreciated. Because being hopelessly confused inside of skill trees is not my personal idea of a fun time, and here, they most certainly get it right in steering the focus onto actual gameplay instead.

And along with its multiple difficulty settings, just about anyone can enjoy what it has to offer...from the very casual side of the spectrum for those who simply wish to explore its scenery, all the way up to the no-nonsense hardcore setting for those veterans out there who wish to master its more subtle nuances.

All in all, Torchlight II has underwent quite a lot of refinement to date, and runs at fantastic framerates even on less than cutting-edge hardware.

But most of all, this is an exciting world to step inside of and one which you can very much have a great time with since there is always something interesting to do along with an accompanying sense of accomplishment felt as each goal is successfully completed...and that is why...

I'll gladly rate this one a 9/10


- Many hours of fun with lots to do and much to explore
- Impressively designed & vast isometric world with vibrantly colorful aesthetics
- Wonderfully implemented dynamic zoom camera
- Nice selection of weapons + gear
- Can play as both male or female
- Great value for the purchase price
- Rebindable keys
- Impressive amount of adjustable graphics options
- Local/online co-op + offline single-player
- Steam achievements + trading cards
- Countless mods available via the Steam Workshop


- Character customization system could be more robust
- Some of the character speech is repeated a bit too often

- Gorgeous graphics
- Loot heaven
- Beautiful environments
- Good pet system
- Nice skill system
- Simple to play with others
- Large selection of mods to play with

- Small class selection
- Small customization selection
- Awkward experience game
- Playing multiplayer is awkward as well

The game is absolutely beautiful, with the most amazing graphics. While the graphics are simple, they work for game and they look amazing for what they are. I couldn't ask for any better from the game. The environments in this game are beyond breath-taking and I could spend ages telling you about all the little details.

The actual gameplay is quick and fun, but easy to pick up and a little hard to master. While you master one character, you have a chance to go back and play the same class but level up different skills, allowing yourself to have a new skillset to master. While the small class selection is definitely a con, I wouldn't say I hate it. I like the four classes presented. However it won't stop me wishing there was some more. Perhaps what disappoints me more is the character customization. It's minimal to say the least and although it's not an important aspect of the game, I feel like it could be a little more.

One thing I noticed while playing was my abnormal experience gain. Each area has recommended levels but every single time I'm above the recommended levels purely because I'm exploring everything. Although this is part of the bonus of exploring everything, I would prefer my reward be in the direction of loot, rather than levels, so the game can still be challenging.

This also leads me to multiplayer. When you play solo and you go on easy, it goes to one difficulty. When you play with others, you can set it to easy, but this is the exact same easy as solo, meaning that the game becomes incredibly easy. Some kind of implement that increased the enemy strength according to the number of players would be nice.

While I have issues with the game though, I would strongly recommend it to any fan of games like this.

Put it simple, one of the best games I ever played. For me TL2 fixed every single problem that made me not like TL1. I love this game, its a really fun RPG where you can play several classes, several builds, and blow stuff up on many diferent ways. (I love the enginner spider mine explosions, I really do, feels great when it blows that huge mob train following you)

If you don't want to play Diablo III, but you want that Diablo II vibe with a steampunk twist - this is a great game. All of my hours have been LAN Parties with friends. After you finish the game, the last Act / buying higher level dungeons is a great system.

RIght now I'm at the 22 Hour mark.

Having played other games in this genre, namely Diablo 3 and Path of Exile, this game is quite the gem. I have played as many RPG's in various forms as I've had hot dinners. At present I simply do not have the time to dedicate myself to anyvone game and becoming hardcore(MMO's) or a Pro(First Person Shooters) is something I cannot do right now due to being overly busy. At the same time when I do have free time I like to immerse myself in a game that doesn't bore me.

From what I've research the level cap is 100, with it going as high as 999 then. I can't help but wonder where my adventures wil ltake me, the distance lands, the enemies I'll encounter, the situations I'll find myself cursing the screen and blaming god knows what on my failures.

In short, this game is very enjoyable. I don't have many complaints except for the lack of storage space even though each character has a "Shared storage" and "Personal Storage", both of course are self explanatory.

Having experimented with 3 out of the 4 Classes, I settled on "Outlander", a gun/Bow/Crossbow single and dual wielding ranged class. All classes have pets but this class particluarly allows you to spawn shadow minions when you kill an enemy and speccing mroe into them gives you a greater chance. Most of the weapons also come with knockback which simply amazing for survivability. Most times enemies rarely get near me and when they do I have a Rapid Fire abilitiy that blows them to hell. It also offers snaring and other Crowd control abilities making, at least for me, the most viable class to play long term.

I feel I also have to be in honest in that I'm only half paying attention to the lore simply because the way the Devs have gone about it, doesn't seem overly immersive which is a bit of a bumemr as the gameplay and mechanics are quite enjoyable. That being said, I have not played the first one so that is most likely a major factor in my lack of perception in regard to the story.

If you're looking for a game you can play 'Offline' and 'Online' as well as casually and still enjoying both this and real life. This is the game for you.
