Original-Gamer.com: "Riding on the success of its predecessor, Torchlight II kicks open the door of fall releases with cartoonish swagger. A title that promises a solid dungeon crawl while at the same time not taking itself too seriously, the visually pleasing Torchlight II promises a great many things prior to its release. A total of 4 unique character classes unlike what had been found in the previous installment. A bigger, better game with a larger world to explore, and more to do. Even mention of aesthetic changes in character customization has been announced by developer Runic Games. The biggest promise however, was that it was going to be a better title than what came before."
