Torchlight is a hack n slash dungeon crawler where the gameplay is very similar to the huge successful Blizzard title Diablo 1 & 2.
Torchlight seems very much like a clone, however that doesn't stop this game being a great and addictive game to play!
Players can pick out of 3 classes, Destroyer, Alchemist and Vanquisher.
Every character has 3 talent trees with different skills so you can customize your character in anyway you wish.
Gameplay works the same way as Diablo, you enter a dungeon and start smashing everything in your way, gaining items and leveling up your character. After reaching the end of the dungeon, you'll be introduced to a boss battle!
There are a few things in Torchlight which are not in Diablo. You have a wolf/cat following you around who will fight beside you and carry items in his bag, think of him as a portable bank. Levels randomize everytime you enter them, making it a new adventure everytime you enter. There are fishing spots which I've never bothered to use.
Torchlight is jam packed full of action and it feels great destroying hordes of enemies watching their bodies turn into a puddle of blood, great stuff.
Torchlight comes with a editor so you can create your own maps!!
Torchlight doesn't get a 5 star because there isn't a multiplayer mode whatsoever.
