I downloaded the demo yesterday and tried it out. It was ok like you said but was no where near diablo. Seems to me like it's diablo rated PG. I'm still up in the air about it. I AM a bit curious about the story line already
Torchlight is going to become a free-to-play action MMO sometime this year.
When it does become a MMO do you know if your characters you make now transfer over? If it is really close to D1 and D2 maybe I will give it a go! Even if it is only for one run through I'm guessing that will be worth the $20, I mean its not that much!
Hey everyone in the torchlight community! I am acctually away on work right now and am looking for something to occupy my time in the evenings on some of those boring nights (I'm away for an extended period :(). So I'm wondering if torchlight is a worthy candidate for this? I love diablo 2 and after going through this forum it seems like it is pretty similar. However, since it is not multiplayer I'm a little worried. I love getting good items and using them, in D2 that was the best thing for me. Since there is no multiplayer I'm guessing I'm going to be forced to find everything myself. Is this super hard?
Also how is the replay value? Will I want to play it all over again once its done? What I mean by that is will I feel an incentive to like it will be a bit different somehow? Will the hours I put into it leveling a character and finding good stuff yield a sense of accomplishment or will it feel pointless because the character is useless after you beat the final boss?
And mainly, is it fun? Does it hold a "torch" to D2?
