Simply put, Torchlight II is a phenomenal game. It's incredibly polished, and everything just feels like it's in the right place when you're playing. It's tons of fun to play and never takes itself too seriously, and there are some great pop culture references sprinkled throughout. It's a great pickup for both action RPG fans and newcomers alike, at $20 it's the best bargain that there is in gaming, and something I would recommend to anyone without hesitation.
The best RPG game I've ever had the opportunity to play. Great classes, missions, skills, opponents and characters. The option to play online makes the difference and the addition of mods helps to make the game more flexible.
A great game. As far as gameplay goes, this is going to bring back memories of the earlier Diablo games. The story is perhaps less interesting, but it certainly doesn't take itself as seriously as Diablo so I'm happy with that. For the price Runic are charging, this is an absolute gem - and I've got an empty socket.
Torchlight II is great fun and it won't be long before you're playing the game late at night muttering the famous gamer mantra, "Just one more quest." This is a how a sequel should be: it reintroduces concepts and mechanics that made the game popular while making a few useful tweaks and changes to parts of the design. Although it doesn't stray too far outside the original game's shadow, it is no less wonderful for it. As the saying goes, "if it isn't broke, don't fix it."
Improves on everything over its predecessor, first and foremost in letting you adventure and loot together with your friends. Runic has made a smooth and enjoyable action RPG that is at the top of its genre. So how about innovating something truly new for the next installment, both in character mechanics and the setting?

Make no mistake, Torchlight 2 is nothing revolutionary. It favors a remix of genre conventions over any true evolution of the action RPG formula, but it is a pitch-perfect execution of those traditions that remains satisfying from start to finish and beyond
Красоту этой игры вы почувствуете сразу, вас ждет качественный геймплей и музыка, если вы понимаете о чем я. Четыре интереснейших класса, более 20 скилов на урон без кд для каждого из них. Мой тиммейт из Белоруси, неоднократный чемпион по мобам и боксу к тому же знаменитый модельер, говорит что это лучшая игра после танков.
По сравнению с первой частью немного подтянулась графика, бои такие же кривые, мобы такие же убогие, вид теперь как бы сверху и как по мне камера сильно далеко, не совсем комфортно играть даже на мониторе 32 дюйма, вообщем проходняк, желания проходить игру полностью не возникло, куда лучше побегать в диабло 3, удовольствия получите больше.
Hack and slash games can often be tedious, unless the game offers a good atmosphere or more sophisticated gameplay. In my opinion, Torchlight II offers none. Charming graphics remind me of World of Warcraft / Warcraft III. I liked the idea of having a pet and being able to send him to town to sell your loot, but aside from that, the game is quite bland. Skill tree is not well balanced and some choices are way more powerful than others. The whole game is just going to places and madly left-clicking on your enemies, in addition to spending a good amount of time selling your loot.
My friend and I decided to quit halfway through, finally admitting we were simply not having any fun. There are hack and slash games I have enjoyed in the past (Diablo, Silver, VtM: Redemption, Path of Exile, Grim Dawn to name a few…), but this one pales in comparison.
SummaryBeyond the town of Torchlight lies a world shrouded in adventure and mystery. Guardian-warrior Syl appears in a prophetic dream, summoning the player to the Estherian Steppes. There, you meet with the Destroyer and soon venture across the continent of Vilderan, an exotic frontier besieged by forces of evil. A discovery unfolds, that the ...
