Torchlight II review | PC Gamer

"Torchlight II’s status as the conservative underdog is the source of both its most impressive successes and its most visible limitations. It’s tempting to wonder what this chamber orchestra could do with the resources afforded Blizzard’s full-blown philharmonic: at the same time, there are moments when Runic’s devotion to the genre’s past – which, admittedly, they helped to shape – holds the game back. It’s a charming, sunshine-bright indie action-RPG with an old-school disregard for your time. It’ll consume you with a smile, and you’ll be smiling, too: but it’s down to the community to turn it into something special." (PC, Torchlight II) 88/100
