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.

  • 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.

Regardless of the fact that i am big RPG lover, i have to admit that this is one of the best games i ever played!
You liked Diablo? Sacred? Gothic? Titan Quest? So what are you waiting for?

I am giving Torchlight II solid 9/10 without any doubts.
+There is nothing to not like in its graphics.
+A lot of things to do
+A lot of ways of character customization
+SKILL TREES!
+Finishing the game is nothing. You just need to keep getting better equipment & try other classess (which ALL are fun to play)

What i dislike?
I simply HATE when a game has 'dead' achievements which you just can't get, because they are bugged.
BUT! I hate even more when developers don't care about such fact...

First off I would like to start with then fact that people saying this is a "clone" of diablo. Well, every single top-down dungeon crawler, can be called a "clone" of diablo so be quiet haters. However if you are debating over getting diablo 3 or this game, this game is the way to go, because 1:it's cheaper. 2:Diablo 3 is not even that good without reaper of souls. Thus this game is a better deal for cash reasons, and the mods are amazing for it, so if you still prefer diablo over this game you could at least mod this game so much that you can at least make it enjoyable. If you wanted to get diablo 2 over this game, then yes get it, it's like 6 bucks on amazon and like $4 shipping that's why it is like $6. Now that I have that cleared up I will actually talk about this game. This game is made by the people who made Fate, my first dungeon crawler I ever played, and that game is quite good as well. I suggest it, but not over this game. This game is so enjoyable, especially with the synergies mod, if you like vanilla of this game then you will love the synergies mod it makes the game easilly twice as better. Now this game follows the classic dungeon crawler basics get loot, and kill stuff, but also instead of just leveling up a few skills that the game already has for you to level up, instead it has skilltrees so it has major replayablity and also it has many different weapons for you to use and there is 4 classes with 3 skill trees on each so that could easily be 12+ playthroughs. But i can tell you with my mods i have i have like another 6 classes easily all well made. Another thing that is great about this game, is that the pet mechanic works brilliantly, inventory full, I think not send your crap you don't want and put it in your pets inventory, pets inventory full? Send it to town to sell that crap you don't want, so you can stay killing stuff and looting stuff. I highly recommend this game one of my favourites of all time. 9.5/10 this game is waaaaay to underrated it must be more popular. Also I have an idea if this game evr gets a torchlight 3, if they can try this, maybe make it like a dungeon crawler but heres the catch mix those mechanics and make it like an open world sandbox, such as skyrim or fallout. That is all, once again 9.5/10 I hop this game gets a triquel.

Torchlight II is almost everything I want from a loot driven RPG. It's a fast-paced game with a good loot drop variety and frequency. Its co-op supports a party with up to 8 members (with an official mod). By the way, it's also very moddable and it has a lot of cool options that range from slightly modify the game to complete rebalance. The classes are all different from the original and there's a lot of different ways to build everyone. It can have some problems when it comes to syncing with other players but that seems to have improved a lot in the last months. It's better with friends and there's even a LAN mode but it still has an active community if you're interested in playing online.

-Quick Review-
Torchlight II is a dungeon crawler game that lets you chose to play as a few different classes. The basic concept is the same as nearly all dungeon crawlers: Explore, level up, find gear, beat the boss, rinse and repeat.
-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: Oh no! the alchemist is going to bring about the end of the world! You there, unnamed random hero, it's your job to warn everyone, and be just a few steps behind the alchemists defiling touch.
As I implied, you're obviously the hero, the villain you will be trying to catch is known as "the alchemist", whom has been corrupted and destroys all that is in his way.

Game Play: I sense that most dungeon crawlers are time consuming on purpose, I spent a good 30-40 hours before I beat the game, then I kept playing for another 30 hours to get to max level, and at that point I stopped playing.
The whole dungeon crawler genre is criticized for giving us "carpool tunnel", you click, a lot. you do use keys to cast different spells, attacks, and abilities. So for fair warning, you will spend a lot of time in this game clicking.
There is a feature in the game that lets you load up your pet with tons of gear, and send 'em back to town to sell them for you, or buy health potions, basically you never need to go to town to sell gear or buy potions, you're servant pet will do it for you. What does this mean for you, brave adventurer? More dungeon crawling, less vendering trash items! Yay! (Hopefully!)

Achievements: So I hit 76% completion on this game, I've given up trying to actively get 100% completed for achievements, mostly because RNG (Random Number Generator) hates me. I decided getting above 75% was pretty good for a game with 123 achievements, many requiring grinding.
Achievement categories: Beat the game/boss, try doing this, kill this many enemies, open this many of these, do this ____ amount of times, get lucky, play long enough to do this 100,000,000 times. Again, basically I assume that I'll eventually make more progress on this game as I find people who are like "hey, play this with me!" and I'm like "okay, I only need to 3,000 more potions! let's do it!"
Half of these achievements are from just playing the game, so you can enjoy that, but getting 100% will require a lot of play time. Just a warning :)

Price: Torchlight II costs $19.99, I've spent 70 hours playing it. That's definitely worth it. Most people will at least get over 20 hours in the game, even if they're not trying to beat it.
As always, I suggest getting the game on sale or in a humble bundle, but the stand alone price is very much worth it, based on the amount of game time I squeezed out of it.

Conclusion: Story: interesting the first time through, it was very dragged out (not in a bad way, really), Game play: click x1,000,000 (over 9,000 clicks used in the making of this review), Achievements: nothing to write home about, Price: very good price based on the amount of time required to play through the whole game.
This type of game is best suited for people who already know they like dungeon crawlers, I've played several, if you're new to the series this is a great game to start trying it out with! Just be warned there is a lot of clicking involved. Again, this game becomes a 100 times more fun with a friend or two. But, I did play through the whole game solo my first time.

After 250+ hours i can say this game is a great sequel to Torchlight, and i'm not going to stop playing it. TII has improved almost every aspect of the original game. It basically is a greatly expanded version of Torchlight, with wider maps, more items, more enemies and more classes to choose from. Everything seems smooth and well placed. It is a pleasure to keep trying new classes and, most importantly, new builds and skill paths. In conclusion: Torchlight II is a great hack 'n' slash every fan of this type of games should own. It will entertain you for hours and hours and you will hardly repeat boring actions like farming and grinding. A must have, for such a low price.

Made mostly by the same guys who made original Diablo games , Torchlight II is everything Diablo III was not. Colorful thou not childish graphics, fast thou not numb combat,tones of side content, interesting skill trees full of smartly designed skills allowing you to play same class in many different ways makes this best Diablo ' clone ' i've ever had pleasure of playing. I hope we will see 3rd installment.!

An enjoyable Diablo style game I would recomend it to anyone who enjoyed Diablo 2. It is quite a bit shorter than D2 but still worth it.

I thought this game was great! In so many ways. The Arpg top down diablo style. The quirky toony characters and mobs and environment. The mmo feel, skill tree character progression and levelling. Great looking gear and cool loot, with stated sockets and modifiers. Sweet pets to choose from, fun tough bosses and a mild story line.

What more could you hope for?

It was nearly perfect but for a few things. It started great! but felt rushed towards the end like they didn,t care as much as when they started. What started out as love and care, didn't end that way. Dont get me wrong it all looked great but it just didn't have the sense of love it started with and it made the progression towards the end, feel a bit grindy and that you just wanted it to finish. Shame.

Other than I really liked this game, it was extremely fun with 2 players. Just felt like our own personal mmo with our own 2 player dungeons.

There's no Diablo on Steam, there's Torchlight. And honestly, it might just be enough not to sell your soul to the Battlenet :)

Game has 4 heroes, 3 skill trees, 4 acts, lots of magical items, monsters, huge bosses, multiplayer and a personal pet. Also there are small things like fishing, gems, item sets, trivial quests, lottery etc. Everything seems to be in place and well balanced, but ...

Only problem I have with Torchlight, things change a bit too fast, levels come too quickly, no sense of collecting item sets as they get replaced with better ones right away, which also makes it hard to accumulate any gold.

And, overall, game is missing some sense of greatness ... It's still a very good game, though.

Really enjoying this game.
I like very versatile character development in this game, when from the same class you make really different type of warrior.
Player has lots of space for improvising building up his character, can try some skills and remove them after if not needed at the re-trainer in town.
Cons I could think of - Torchlight II is too much time-consuming. Be aware of that :).

It's a good, fun game, but probably not worth the full price. If you enjoyed Torchlight 1, chances are, you'll like this. Unfortunately, the game still suffers from many problems found in the first game, the magic effects and environments are much more varied and pleasing to look at, however the dungeons get very tedious and many battles will probably consist of casting the same spells/attacks over and over. There have been many times when I just ran through the dungeon and avoided enemies because it would be too time consuming and boring to kill every single one. Boss battles also consist almost exclusively of staring at your health bar instead of the actual battle because your health will go down VERY quick during one. I played for about 15 hours, which is around the length of the main storyline + some side quests. The best I can say is, if you liked the first game and this goes on sale, go ahead and buy it.

I've been searching for a good RPG ever since I quit my old one for being to expensive and to childish. This game is the closest I have gotten and I highly recommend it. Although it's not exactly what I wanted it's close enough. Also I got an achievment for exploding 1 000

As I sit here with my meat flaps hanging over the sides of my struggling armchair, I come to the realization that my eupohoric words have not touched the minds of other neat meme onlookers in quite some time. I decide to recite a poem that my grandfather used to riddle off to me every time I defecated in my jean shorts. (that usually smelled like Oprah Winfrey's rancid poopusher) The poem, if I remember correctly, went as so:

♥♥♥♥ you little ♥♥♥♥♥♥ kid
♥♥♥♥ your ♥♥♥♥ty ♥♥♥ memes
Clean your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ shorts
You little aborted creme

This poem often filled me with a warmth so warm that it could probably defrost Michael J. Fox's nerves. I still remember that day, excrement steaming from my dark pits, that he told me he would finally accept me as his own. I got so excited that my undershorts shot straight off my urethra cannon zimmer zammer.
To conclude, Torchlight 2 was a game that invited all of my senses to a backalley orgy where they were lanced with filthy needles and sputtered with unholy man extract. If you want to have fun with some of your hoodrats in this wonderful game, spend the money on heroin instead, for you will experience the same capacity of worthlessness that I did when my grandfather suffocated on the sea of liquid turd that deployed from my intestine hangar on the day of the reckoning.
Was a fun game
