    Torchlight II Review

    Torchlight II

    Torchlight II is up there with the best examples of the genre, but Runic Games makes very little attempt to advance the genre beyond what we were already comfortable with a decade ago. Torchlight II is a game that plays by the rules, and most of those rules are... more
