I only played the first FATE game as a kid, but when I started this game the nostalgia was intense. One or some of the devs who worked on FATE later formed Runic Games, who brought us the Torchlight series, with the similarities between the two games being exremely evident. So Torchlight is the sexy game you wanna play, and FATE is the MILF. Old but gold!

"Wow! you caught a fish and found a DOGFISH in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a SMALL TROUT in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a FINGERLING BLACK JACKFISH in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a TYPHON PORTAL MEDALION in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a TRAVELERS BACKPACK in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a AMETHYST in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a CLEVE'S CLOVEN CLEAVER OF CLEAVING in it!"
"Wow! you caught a fish and found a PERONTO'S CHEESEHEAD OF THE EMERALD BAY in it!"

All of these items are things that I have found while fishing in the game. when you catch an actual fish in the game, you don't actually catch that fish. You catch an fish, and then find a fish inside of it, and keep THAT fish. (then for some reason you let the other one go.) You can find an item that takes up 8 inventory spaces inside of a fish (which only takes up 1 inventory space). This is a great dungeon-crawling game. I owned this game a while ago and then lost it. I got it on steam, and it is just as magnificant as I remember it. You can play for hours and hours on end; completeing quests, diving deep, and coming face-to-face with your greatest nemisis; yourself. Here are some of the ups and downs of the game:

The ups,
+Play for hours, you can play up to level 2,305 if you wish. There is no limit to how powerfull you can become.
+customize your character from a variety of races, each with it's own buffs
+choose a pet companion from a bizzare selection of animals
+go fishing and laugh at the hilarious things you catch (The majority of this games humor is in it's fishing and the references scattered throughout the world. For example, I once came across a semi-boss named Baron the Red, I also found a glowing red sword called the LITE SABRE, and another glowing blue sword called the LIGHT SWORD)
+customize your charcter with skills, abilities, armor, and magic that suits your playstyle.
+excellent replay value, when you tire of one character, you can retire and choose an heirloom from your inventory to pass down to you heir.

The downs,
-very repetitive
-You have to choose a specific path very early on in the game (Sword, hammer, shield battle, attack magic, charm magic, etc.) you can't really switch between paths later in the game, as you are almost forced to stick with one weapon the whole way through, otherwise your charcter will be ineffective.
-not much of a story, there is an interesting narration followed by concept art in the begining, but from there on out, it's just run through the dungeon, complete quests, and level up.
-The enchanters, (The NPC's who add buffs to weapons) are absolute jerks in this game. The money they charge for enchantment is outragous, and if they fail to enchant something the first time, (or accidentily drain all of the powers from your item) they simply keep your money and leave you with squat. So if you get the game, take my advice: If you choose to enchant something, make sure it is something you can possibly afford to part with. Enchanters can drain you more than the gamblers in this game. But at least with gambling you have something relativly valuable to walk away with when you lose.

All and all, I would give this game an 8/10. It is certainly a must-have for fans of dungeon-crawling or Role-playing games. NOTE: If you want this game, get ONLY this game, and not the first two FATE's because this game is all those games combined into one, so getting them all would bbe a waste of money.

Fate : The Traitor Soul

If i didn't play first Torchlight, i'll probably enjoy this game. Because that stupid clone Torchlight, with better gameplay, even if i don't like classes from it, i have no fun to play Fate.

Graphics aren't nicest i saw but it will be no problem if game offer better gameplay.

I uninstalled Fate.


Thx to http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198138097297 (Drez) to report me Torchlight was clone.

I've played Fate for a while befor steam and it's a solid standard diablo "clone" but holds enough on it's own as well. A bit dated graphics? Perhaps but for this price this is well worth it. I would buy this one only, the other two are expansions that this one includes.

Oh, FATE: The Traitor Soul! Fun, delightful, charming. It's a magnificent game, and there's so much to do! One of the best and most enjoyable games I've ever played. It was an instant buy when I saw it here again, even though I already have an official copy from WildTangent's own service.

The music, the graphics, the gameplay...it's all wonderful. I can't say enough about how much I love it. Plus you get to choose various races and animal companions, including a fox! They make authentic noises and the companion really adds a tremendous amount to the game. It is generally a very accessible game, not overcomplicated, but you can get into really exciting complexity with gear, magic, and the stats that suit your play preferences.

The Traitor Soul is a game I have literally played for years, and I've never grown tired of it. It's easy to pick up, play a bit, and put down...or play for hours and lose yourself in its absorbing adventures. There is literally limitless appeal and lasting gameplay value! At this price it's a steal, so please do yourself a favour and pick up FATE: The Traitor Soul today. It will be a faithful companion to you forever.

Absolutely a classic game. I loved playing through this when I was younger and it's still great now. Be warned that this is the only version of Fate you need to buy because it has all the other stuff from Fate and Fate: Undiscovered Realms. Check out the subreddit for discussions and news! http://www.reddit.com/r/FateTheGame/

Just stumbled upon it. Way back when Torchlight 2 was developed I kept on hearing that it borrowed some things like pets and fishing from this series. I don't look at this game with Nostalgia glasses as I just recently discovered it and though you will want some modern conveniences brought by the newer ARPGs, this game is pretty addictive. The game does not force you to go through Acts and you could just play it your own way. The way to describe it is like how the Supernatural TV show describes purgatory "you fight for the sake of fighting, loot for the sake of looting, play for the sake of having fun and everything felt so pure." The game just feels so pure, pure that it only focuses on what makes these type of games fun. I really wish I stumbled upon this series when I was younger. At the price it is selling it is highly recommended.

My only concern though is I don't know if its possible to access the grove main quest in this game. If only the developers would enable you to access all the main quest and all the dungeons and wrap the series up in to one neat package containing the contents from Fate, Undiscovered Realms, Traitors soul, and Cursed King.

Game is awesome but not at all the final game I have it on CD but lost it but I have played it many times before steam got it but still a great game brings back memories from only a few years ago and giving it the best rating of 10/10 cause it deserves it :)!
Great game and now instead of grabbing the first 2 games just grab this one cause you can play both the fates in this 1 game so don't bother with the others this covers those plus more dungeons addon mainly for traitor soul and higher levels :)!

I bought this for the nostalgia, its a great game though people need to understand, this isn't a new game, its not going to look extremely pretty and its a dungeon crawler, the mobs are meant to be repetitive, so I warn people now that don't like doing the same thing over and over, this game isn't for you, but that being said who knows, I got 2 friends into Diablo 3 who didn't like the idea of it but now they love it, so if you think its worth a shot, then by all means go ahead.

I wouldn't ever dare say this game is perfect, but its a great little game for passing time and playing when you're bored, I'm just glad I could purchase it on steam. :)

I love this game! I use to play the demo over and over again of the orginal FATE. When I got the full game I spent hours and hours exploring through the dungeons. This is packed with so much content compared to the others(cause its most of the games). I Really love this game(made by Travis Baldree) Which went on to make torchlight, but sometimes you just go down memory lane.

As Getts says "at these prices it's practically stealing"

Great game for a low price. It's an ARPG, so it plays like Torchlight or Diablo etc. If you like those kinds of games and are looking for something else, it's worth trying this out.

This is a Diablo Style action RPG. if youve played torchlight and liked that then you'll like this. pretty much the same interface but the game is alot more free. if you want to be a wizard who uses enchanted swords then you can do that. but ONLY BUY THIS GAME if you are thinking of buying the 1st and 2nd ones, those come in this game. would definitly reccomend this game to all RPG fans and dungeon crawler fans. 10/10 best 5 dollars ive spent in my life.
