Review: Torchlight II photo
Review: Torchlight II
by Jonathan Ross

Torchlight II was, unfortunately, subject to a number of delays. Originally set for release back in 2011, it's only now become available for purchase. I'm happy to say the wait was worth it.

It's a bit rough around the edges, but Torchlight II takes the successful formula of the original Torchlight (and its predecessors) and expands on it, without making any drastic changes. If you played the first game, you know pretty much exactly what you're getting with the sequel -- and that's definitely not a bad thing.

Torchlight II may not be a perfect game -- the UI could use a bit of extra polish and the multiplayer system begs for extra features -- but it's a ton of fun and at only $20, it's an absolute steal.

Torchlight II's OST will set you back all of $0 photo
Torchlight II's OST will set you back all of $0
by Tony Ponce

Looking forward to Torchlight II's release in a couple of days? How about the game's soundtrack, composed by Matt Uelmen of Diablo and Diablo II fame? Originally, the OST was released back in June in limited quantities, as Jayson Napolitano previously noted. The good news is that it's now available for the public and for the wonderful, wonderful price of NOTHING!

That's right! You can swing on by the Torchlight II soundtrack page and download the 28-track album right this second. No muss, no fuss. It's a beautiful thing.

I love this recent trend of game composers' giving away their soundtracks. It's such a generous gesture that only gets you more excited to check the full game out. Who among you is going to capitalize on Mr. Uelmen's generosity?

Torchlight II's release is right around the corner, and after hearing how well it's coming together from our hands-on at PAX last week, I've been anxiously waiting to hear composer Matt Uelmen's music in-game. We already reviewed the promotional soundtrack release that has been distributed in limited quantities, but we now have exclusive mixes created just for Destructoid with Matt Uelmen walking us through his thought process for each piece.

Are you looking forward to Torchlight II, and does the soundtrack do anything for you? Would you like to see it released in a more substantial way?

PAX: 30 minutes of Torchlight II left me craving for more

Confession: I never did finish the original Torchlight. For whatever reason, the game failed to grab me -- maybe it was the pacing, the lack of co-op support, or something else entirely. Whatever the case might be, I'll fini...

Diablo III is blatantly better than Torchlight II photo
Diablo III is blatantly better than Torchlight II
by Jim Sterling

Diablo III launched a few scant months ago, but its PR snafus and controversial business decisions have soured a fair few players. Meanwhile, Runic Games has sat back and capitalized, as jilted dungeon crawlers look toward Torchlight II and hail it as the answer to their prayers. 

Sadly, however, these poor misguided fools are as misguided as they are poor. They are also foolish. They are poor, misguided, and foolish because only a poor misguided fool who is foolishly misguided would be poor enough to consider Torchlight II anywhere near Diablo III in terms of asskickingness. I swear by the blank check in my shirt pocket that I will defend Activision's beautifully made game against all criticism, because there is one simple truth that you need to understand. 

Diablo III is blatantly better than Torchlight II.

Six things Torchlight II does better than Diablo III photo
Six things Torchlight II does better than Diablo III
by Patrick Hancock

When I received an invite to the Torchlight II beta, I let out a noise that can only be described as a "yelp." It was a happy noise, one that I wasn't quite sure I was capable of making. "This will be a great time killer until Diablo III comes out," I thought. Well, now that Diablo III is out, I still find myself booting up the Torchlight II client quite often.

What was it that pulled me away from a game I had been anticipating for the better part of a decade? Well, quite a few things, really. It's not that I think Diablo III is inherently a bad game, it's just that Torchlight II does a few things better, some of which are pretty crucial to my enjoyment of the game.
