Developed by Runic Games

Behold Torchlight, a fresh new Action RPG franchise developed by Runic Games. Torchlight is being developed in Seattle by a veteran team composed of the designers and leads of projects like Diablo, Diablo II, Mythos, and Fate. Our team has spent many years honing and evolving this unique style of gameplay.

Greetings fellow travellers.

My name is Shavrath, and I come from the north. Some of you might already thought about that, after seeing my bulky build and long beard. I came to this inn to tell you my story, how I discovered the mysteries in world of Torchlight.

It was a long time ago, when I came to the town of Torchlight. I was a young Destroyer back then, and I barely could hold a battle-axe in my hands. After talking with the natives I realised, that there is something bad going on. I got my first quests, and I headed for the old mine, forgotten by all that is holy.

When I arrived there, I was instantly attacked by ancient evil, lurking around, trying to... Read All

I got my Torchlight copy among other Humble Indie Bundle games, and it was nothing more than a pleasant bonus - I recall being more excited about Dustforce. A couple of years ago I've pirated Torchlight, but ended up playing just a dozen levels before giving up. Perhaps at that time I just didn't care that much for ARPG's - Diablo II met a similar fate, although on one occasion I did make it to the start of Act III.

This time, thought, it was different. A couple of days ago I felt the urge to play something new, and ended up installing Torchlight. Played a quick session before going to sleep, but again, I wasn't too impressed - it felt dated and I still... Read All

Torchlight was overall a pretty good game. It had a diverse amount of maps, weapons, armor, and the such. Torchlight was fun, but once you have beaten Ordrak in the Lair, the game kind of loses its excitement, now that you have finished the main quest line, and there are only repeatable and side quests left. The whole game kind of feels a bit grindy, although the ability to mod it makes it a whole lot better. In my opinion, Torchlight is a good game to play for a weekend or 2, but its lack of multiplayer or coop subtracts from the game's fun. Really hoping that Torchlight 2 will be much better than the original.

Torchlight was to be my fix before Diablo III came out and it did give me tons of fun reliving the good old Diablo II days. Killing monsters, leveling up, getting talents for damage, watch things explode and picking up those sweet sweet loot. In my case, it was letting my minions do the work while I chill and nuke stragglers along the way.

Sad to say, I didn't complete the game. Grueling level after level of the same dungeon type, over and over and over again, I hit the bottom of the first one. Boss time! Now that was fun! But it ended in a flash and there I was back in town, pointed to the graveyard for yet another descent into "over and over again". With... Read All

Torchlight is a sort of Diablo II I've always wanted to play. It has much more positive and pretty cartoonish graphics and a lot of looting (as any Diablo-like game would have ;) ), not to mention fishing mini-game and an (yay!) an option to send a pet to the town instead of running there on my own ;)

I wanted to finish the game with a hardcore char just to test (and testify) my skills with dungeon-crawlers. It's good to know that even the hardest difficulty is not insane and is easily playable (by me). The problem came at the third night. It's just like sleeping when you drive. So *BAM!!!* -- ooh, my health is dropping, how quick, strange. *BAM!!!* -- Game... Read All

I never played any Diablo games, so when a friend recommended it to me I wasn't sure what to expect. He said it involved a lot of hack-and-slash and equip gathering. It didn't seem very amusing, but I decided to give it a shot. Boy was I wrong.

First of all I loved the art style for not being so serious, it was a new experience to me, so it made it all seem less intimidating. I soon found myself playing for hours and never wanting to stop. I do confess only having 3 character choices (and no gender options) bugged me a little, but nonetheless I happily played as an Alchemist, with a wolf for a pet. I spent a lot of time fishing too, and I loved loved loved... Read All

Torchlight took everything that made diablo 2 work and made it roughly 10,000x better. It's no wonder, too, as Runic is mainly composed of the former Blizzard East employees charged with creating Diablo 2 in the first place. From the ability to create endless variations of the same class to the random dungeon generator, not to mention the Sword of Adam (WIZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDS!) This game was a masterpiece and the TRUE spiritual successor to Diablo 2.

Torchlight is a very fun game.. The cartoonist version of Diablo I supposed..
-Torchlight 1 is awesome but it doesn't have the Multiplayer part.

- Torchlight 2 is pretty much Torchlight one with Co-op option, more Class, More pets, More Items and pretty much more fun =) I liked how we have various pets to choose from now, 2 Dogs, Wolf, Tiger, Cat and Bird looking lizard/dragon?! My characters were the Engineer (Main Char) and the Embermage!

I just beat Torchlight a few days ago and I wanted to pen my thoughts while they are fresh in my mind. This is a odd review to write as its now taken me over two years to finally complete Torchlight and we are still in the throws of the Diablo 3 release. That said, Diablo 3 won't change too many of my thoughts as ive had years to solidify them.

I picked up Torchlight about a two+ year's ago after trying the demo out and enjoying it. Since I wasn't really into purchasing games digitally at the time, I bought the box copy for $20. I installed the game and I was pleasantly surprised the full game just used my existing demo character. No restarting, just... Read All
