I think after a couple of updates and more interesting gameplay mechanics ...This game can become a really good ARPG.

Despite all these good qualities Torchlight II remains a deeper, meatier ARPG than Torchlight III, and it’s a good $10 cheaper. Despite feeling much the same, there are many things Torchlight III does better, and it has enough new features to warrant playing it over its predecessor. But if you are a diehard ARPG nerd you likely own Torchlight II already, and there’s not enough different in III for me to recommend the transition.
The result is that Torchlight 3 is a perfectly fun experience with some replay value, but even in writing this review, I have reached level 33 of the Dun-Djinn with a level-capped Blood Drinker Railermaster and it already feels too repetitive to keep my interest for long. I suppose I could level new characters, but the drive for that is diminished knowing there is not much to do once that journey is complete.
Torchlight III, while clearly wearing the franchise's skin like a badge of honor, never hits the marks of the previous entries. This is a very basic ARPG that frequently shows its free-to-play roots, and in a market overflowing with action-packed role-playing games, being a mediocre sequel isn't going to win you any favors -- especially from hardcore fans.
