Torchlight - Review @ The Escapist

by Woges, 2009-10-28 03:48:37

Positive review of Torchlight from John Funk.

Bottom Line: Torchlight absolutely nails the formula that made Diablo so addictive. The combat feels satisfying, your pet companion is a welcome addition to the genre, and there are plenty of randomized dungeons to explore in the search of the rarest treasure there is. It might not have the depth (or variety of content) of a larger game, but $20 is more than a fair price - and it'll help soothe your twitchy index finger that longs for adventure, with Diablo III so far away. It's addictive and superbly well-made, and well worth the price.

Recommendation: $20 is a steal for this game. Get it.
