What Gamespot Users have to say about Torchlight

    You'd find it hard to notice how the hours pass away when you're on this. A bargain that makes you beg for more and more

    A true example of a bargain game, although with the tedious and sometime over-exerting gameplay left out. Though possessing many components that somewhat take after Diablo 2, the game itself seems to ...

    far more satisfying and enjoyable than Diablo 2 ever was

    Although it could use a tutorial or two, Torchlight delivers hours of action-packed dungeon crawling for a low price.

    Although Torchlight is very much inspired by the Diablo series, it is more of a lightweight version of that game. While it doesn't have Blizzard's enthralling story, captivating music, and great artis...

    A game that follows in Diablo's footsteps yet creates its own blend for presentation

    Rated on June 30, 2012 by capitalism25

    Torchlight was a game that was beyond my reach, a game that I never heard of until people started talking ALOT about it. So I tested it out, finished it in about 15 hours and here's the review :) G...

    Torchlight is a good game, but have some flaws

    Rated on July 12, 2012 by juliano001

    Torchlight is a game made by Schaefer brothers. If you did not know them by now, let me just tell you that they were the key members of Diablo 1 and 2 series. All the magnificent sets of armor and wea...

    The best ARPG to keep you busy until Diablo III, and at $20.00 it's a deal that can't be beat!

    Torchlight absolutely nails the formula that made Diablo so addictive.

    Rated on October 27, 2009 by Lobotomist

    Torchlight is a small masterpiece brought to you by the guys that made original Diablo, Faith and last but not least Mythos (if you had luck to play it). This includes music score composed by Matt Ule...
