An easy introduction to the action-rpg hack 'n slash genre. It's dungeon crawling at its finest. A single-player only Diablo 2 clone with some refining for efficiency of gameplay. Though still a lot of fun, the lack of co-op multiplayer detracts from the one thing that made Diablo 2 such a fantastic game. Still, this is a solid game with enough plot to keep you exploring and enough drops to keep the loot hoarders happy.

Torchlight applies a smooth and modern design to a time-tested concept. The result is successfully crafted and eminently playable dungeon crawler at the attractive price of 20 bucks. The one downer is the puzzling lack of online play. If other titles on the market aren't satisfying your urge to level up and amass a towering hoard of loot, there's a lot to be gained from going at it solo in Torchlight's dungeons.

Torchlight hits all the highs of the action RPG genre and avoids virtually all of the lows. The only serious issue that some will have with the gameplay is the absence of a multiplayer mode. Being able to kill monsters with a pal or three is a core part of the Diablo experience, so some players will find this omission hard to live with. Still, the solo campaign is reasonably lengthy (and is boosted by some bonuses after its conclusion) and well designed. Levels move along smartly, so you get into a perfect clicking groove.

Torchlight is part of a growing market of PC games finding success with budget prices. Runic hasn't dumbed down the experience, they've removed the fluff and distilled it down to the truly fun parts. Add in a few innovations and what you've got is Torchlight; a game that raises the expectations for dungeon-crawling action RPGs by being not just fine-tuned but affordable as well.
