That kind of game that keeps you from pretty much having a life. "One more floor and I'll go make dinner"- you think.. 5 hours later: "Ok, that's IT! This is the last floor and then I'm hitting the bed!" Spoiler: It will never happen, you will never stop, Runic Games knows how to get ahold of your soul.. Nobody should be keener for fast runs with this one!

Still loving the game,despite my lack of sleep. The classes aren't many but the characters adapt as you level up and allocate points.You get your very cute little pet,too. Despite starting with Torchlight II and only now buying Torchlight I, I'd say it's as addictive and awesome.

TL,DR -> Go grab this awesome game!

9/10

The story is a bit lackluster and you're stuck in the same village the entire game. Nothing really special about the enemies or the end boss. Most of the achievements will require a lot of playtime and multiple playthroughs. Pretty much a cartoony Diablo clone, but an alright game nonetheless.

Diablo-like (not as grim), WoW looks. You got a pet that looks cute and sell the stuff you loot. Fine if you enjoy arcades.

Good as Diablo 1, but not like Diablo 2, the lack of oficial characters, pets, towns, make this game a quite cloying. Torchlight 2 has implemented all those things in it.

This game is about 10 hours too long. It was fairly entertaining at first, but constantly having to clear out my inventory soon became a tedious chore. The story and setting didn't do a good job of drawing me in - it felt like they weren't even trying. I was never really challenged to change up my play style - I basically got through the game spamming the same couple of attacks over and over, and had no major problems. The last boss took forever, and you'd think they'd at least throw in a decent ending after that, but no, just a quick "thank you" and you're unceremoniously dumped back into the world.

I suppose overall it's fairly well made for what it is, so maybe I just don't like the genre, but for all the time it took, I never found it particularly rewarding, so I can't really recommend it.

My opinion; better than Diablo 3.

I liked Torchlight 1 a *little* more than this one, mainly due to a bit more freedom in customization. This game is a good grinding game, if you just want to zone out and use 4-5 buttons the whole time, this is it.

Customization could definitely use some liberating, though.

Pros:
Multiple loadout per character. Or was that in the second game?

Cons:
Steam Cloud isn't cross platform.

The aesthetic is smooth and the gameplay is intuitive and fun, but the story and world leaves much to be desired. Somehow, even as an RPG lacking an immersive story, it manages to keep you playing for a while.

This game is awesome ! I've seen people play Torchlight 2 (TL2) and it hasn't motivated to "upgrade". Overall this is a great hack and slash game that provides hours of entretainment. One thing that has stopped me from contiue to play it is that I didn't have internet connection for about 3weeks and although I completed the game while in offline mode, the game dosen't recognize this.

Haven't put many hours into this game yet, but when I do, will end up playing this to death!!

If you liked the Diablo series, then the Torchlight games (both 1 & 2) are for you. Lots of real time hacking and slashing as well as spell casting while gaining items, some of next to no value or some with great value which in turn can help your character out.

Plenty of quests (both main story line and side quests), graphics are great, sound is awesome (if you have a decent speaker system), and the gameplay is quick and always fresh.

A great game to spend many long dark winter hours on.

10/10 Torchlight is a really great game! It is similar to Diablo in gameplay, but improved upon in almost every way. I played some of Torchlight and Torchlight 2 at a friends place, then picked them up for myself.

Solid game and a lot of fun if you enjoy RPGs. Art style holds up well even if graphics are dated. Runs very smooth on most any hardware.

It's hack-n-slash on steroids or perhaps speed. I've never tried either, but I assume it's one or both of them.

The pace is quick with lots of enemies to fight through and a decent number of customizations and skills for each character class. You level up reasonably fast to get to new abilities. With what seems to be almost unlimited side quests and then deeper dungeons after finishing the main "story", there should be a decent amount of replayability, though it does seem that it can get repetetive if you really wanted to delve farther and farther. The Steam Achievments also make continued play a decent possibility.

The biggest thing on 'roids in this game, though, is the insane amount of loot and coin you will come across on each level. It just keeps coming and coming as you are constantly looking at newer equipment as well as enchanting options to constantly work to get your character that much more powerful.

Too much loot? Not really. Except on special quest levels, getting back to town to sell your extra stuff is almost no problem. At first I would send my pet back to town to sell extra stuff, but it didn't take long and I had enough teleport scrolls to quickly send me back to town. I probably spent as much time going back and forth between town and the dungeons to sell my extra stuff. It is the perfect OCD action RPG as I almost never had to drop anything to make room for something better. Pick it all up and sell what you don't use. You can use the coin to get some of the gems and other enhacements you want to work with that you can't find lying around.

I've played better and spent more time on others, but it is still a satisfying dungoen crawl that will probably call me from time to time to go just a bit deeper or a level higher so that I can see what's more I can do with my character. For it's reasonably quick main quest playing time, it seems almost obligatory to start it over again with a different playing class to see how it changes the experience.

Once again, not the greatest, but more than entertaining enough to make it worth a play through for action RPG enthusiasts.
