Torchlight - Review @ Torchlight Insider

by Skavenhorde, 2009-10-26 09:54:01

Torchlight Insider has written a review of Torchlight giving it 9.5/10. They were very impressed with the overall game and the modding tools available for it:

Overall, the game is simply amazing.  If you enjoy Diablo, Diablo 2, Fate, or Mythos, you will love Torchlight.  If you’ve never played the games, Torchlight is worth a try.  The game is the most involving, immersive Action/RPG of its kind that I’ve played, and I HIGHLY recommend you at least pick it up.  If not, you’re missing out.

Mega thumbs up to the Runic Games team for developing this game in a year and making such a polished game.  There have been a few reports of crashes, but one crash in 12 hours of gaming with no breaks for your computer isn’t always the game’s fault.  Sometimes bosses will try to hide in corners or escape their main chambers to cause some problems, but again, this is a minor/non-issue.

And final note, I did not get to do any playing with TorchED, the editor being released shortly after the game (formerly known as PrEditor, but that’s changed due to copyright issues).  If you’re a modder, or a mod-player, Torchlight is going to be VERY mod-friendly to give it even more replayability down the road as players add more content, more quests, more items, more classes, or more monsters.  So another boon to an already great game.
