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 Monsters
  • New armor sets
  • New weapons
  • New pets - including the Headcrab!

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 is just plain FUN. Nice loot, good mechanics, level design, etc. are all nice. But the satisfaction of handedly wiping out a horde of baddies is what brings me back.

They say this is what Diablo was supposed to be... well the game itself might stand next to Diabo but I cant really say which is better.

Gameplay is solid and the skill/item grinding is fun. The story falls short of being anything amazing as halfway though you realize the game is move to new dungeon then kill boss for item. Hope you get good gear. Rinse and repeat.
Even with this huge imperfection, the game is still fun to play/grind.

Modding content might spice things up but its still overall the same dish.
Also achives are great but some seem absurd...really 10 million gold? or even worse, have 50 friends? What?

Bottom line: 8.5/10
Great grinding diablo-esk adventure with some replayablilty.
If you like linear progression and grinding, this game is for you!

The reviews are so positive over such a large sample size for a reason......you probably don't need to read any of these reviews really. Its a really solid, well done ARPG that plays like pretty much all the others. Has very nice effects for your attacks, good loot, and a nice sense of progression. The skill trees are expansive enough to somewhat force you to specialize in a few things, and diverse enough there are different ways to play each class. The game has excellent mod support and really shines when modded with the synergies mod and some additional class mods. I would strongly recommend doing this right away.

My only slight complaint is that the vanilla game (i.e. how it is without mods) only has 4 classes, melee characters are kinda harder to play, and the art style may or may not be to your liking. Personally I prefer something a bit less cartoonish but the upside is that it allows the game to run on much older hardware if you are like me and stuck with a crappy 6 year old laptop that cant even run Path of Exile, let alone Grim Dawn or Diablo 3. Anyway, if you even remotely think you will like this game, you are probably right and the hours of gameplay per dollar spent ratio is outstanding.

This is a Diablo clone. Not any Diablo clone, a good Diablo clone.

Dont sleep on this at the awesome price of $3.99.

Cheaper then a box of codoms, also works better than condoms.

Kept me up all night, I'd give it a solid honey badger / 10.

Believe me, I really, truly wanted to leave it at that.
But after ages of telling myself, "I need to try it out," I finally purchased Torchlight II last night. And I was blown away.
Is it like Diablo? Kinda, yeah. But it's a lot... comfier, for lack of a better term. You can customize your character a bit and you get to start with a pet that isn't just cosmetic. Character building, as I understand, is really flexible. I mean, I wanted a battle-mage and I made one. Not fully optimized, mind you, but it's working so far. For the first time in a long while, I've found a game that's made me want to start a save after save, just to see what kinda stuff I can come up with - at only six hours in.

The soundtrack hasn't gotten on my nerves yet, which is saying something. The graphics surprised me, positively; for some reason I was expecting it to look like WarCraft 3 zoomed in. The gameplay's familiar if you've ever touched Diablo, but the game adds its own little things to the mix (inventory cleaning service says hi). I'm sure everything that had to be said already has, so I'll just add one more thing.

Best 3,79 euros I ever spent.

Torchlight II, another fun and entertaining ARPG. I've had the joy of experiencing multiple ARPG games, but something about Torchlight II really kept my attention. Not only does it offer a continuing story from its first installment, you get to choose from four new classes. My first run through I started with the Engineer, because in all honesty having a healing bot and many other bots to assist you creates an easier education of the game. Later on I did check out the other classes and eventually followed a guide from a fellow gamer for the Outlander truly finalized the experience I was hoping for.

Pros:
- Choose who you want and build them how you want. (True there are main recommended builds for each class, but it is much more rewarding when you experiment yourself.
- Plenty of loot to get you excited.
- Champion mobs or bosses, not sure what they classify them as; some pack a punch to test your survivalbility.
- End game runs to complete your build with loot.
- Having a pet you can send out at any time to sell your items is the best ARPG aspect ever!
- The story is fun to follow
- Mods!
- Fishing
- Not just your character, but your pet can also learn scroll skills too!

Cons:
- Only four classes. Not truly a big deal, however, sometimes it is nice having slightly more variety from the creators.
- You can only respec the last three skill points you've spent. This feature alone bugs me, because it limits the idea of altering a build or changing up a character's build without having to start over.
- Maps don't reset. I do recall someone writing up a guide on how to reset maps, but this feature alone should have just been implemented.
- Cookie-cutter class specs. This, sadly, will always be an issue in any game that offers customization on character growth.

As usual in any review I write, this is all based on my experience and opinion. The game is still really fun and with a modding community it does have a long life. I do wish to see, some day, Torchlight III hit development and introduce even better features to a promising campaign. This game does have my recommendation!

I'm done with you, Torchlight. The endless grind strain that can last for hundreds of hours if you are going for a 100% completion is exhausting. But actually very much fun! It attacks your inner masochism of loot picking and Korean-level mouse clicking. Torchlight 2 as a cheaper alternative to Diablo III gets you a lot of bang for your buck. You get a finely stylized fantasy/steampunk world, 4 playable classes with quite original skill trees and Matt Uelmen's wonderful Diablo-esque soundtrack though it's not as unique and memorable as the one in the first game. Personally, I found the story of the village of Torchlight with infinite dungeons beneath it more satisfying than the global apocalypse of this sequel though the sheer scope of the story will grant you access to big overworld areas for you to diligently explore. The game itself didn't change much. You can still send your pet to town to sell stuff, now having an option of creating a shopping list of remedies and scrolls for the pet to buy. The form of the game changed satisfyingly enough with scalable UI, customizable character appearance and many new pets. If you have a few hours to spare, this game will satisfy your questing needs with perspective.

Lots of fun, whether alone or with friends. Tons of different monsters, cool levels, big dungeons and of course items with plenty of room for enchantments and embers to further customize your equipment.
I never really got into the story and felt nothing for the characters, but that isn't the point of this game nor was it the reason I played it. Fun to play and definitely recommended if you love ARPG games like Diablo.

A strong 9 of 10.

While I don't think it is quite up to the polish of Diablo III w/ Reaper of Souls, I think it is a solid 2nd place alternative. It definitely plays similar, but different. The items to feel to less "valuable" than items in D3. Definitely worth the current summer steam sale price and then some.
