Torchlight 2 Review and Gameplay
That oh so long awaited sequel

Gameplay

That's it in a nutshell, looks fun.

The first change is that you do get some degree of character customization. Starting with gender and moving on to a few faces and hair choices, all of which are not even needed, but they exist. You do get a pet with your character, which is the biggest change from the game's inspiration.

The sheer amount of pets available in Torchlight 2 is impressive. There are panthers, wolves, tigers, the studio dog, an alpaca, a headcrab from Half-Life, a cat... Too many to list, but needless to say, I found it regrettable that I could only pick one, when there were so many I wanted to run around with. Other than appearance, there is no difference between the pets.

The last immediate change you notice is that there is a difficulty selection. Instead of the usual 3-tier fixed difficulty, you get to pick how hard you want the game and there's a new game+ after. The rest is standard hack and slash stuff. Kill monsters, gather loot, build your character and do quests. The levels are randomly generated, though it's not as noticeable as in some games.

Thank you for giving us a dragon to fight!
