In short, Torchlight for Xbox Live Arcade retains all of the charm of the PC original. Unfortunately, it also retains the PC version's major flaw: a complete lack of multiplayer, an especially important feature in the action RPG genre. Even the simple ability to trade items with other players would have been a very welcome addition. As it stands, multiplayer will have to wait for Torchlight 2.

Movement feels smoother with the analogue stick, and that inevitably helps when you're crawling your way through hordes of skeletons. While PC players might miss the standard hot keys they were used to, Torchlight on XBLA is proof that they're by no means necessary. Ten years on from Diablo and it still has enough influence over modern games to power a generation of clones, but both Torchlight and its developer prove to be one the perfect students of the genre.

For all that, it's a better dungeon crawler than most everything else that has been released post-Diablo II. Torchlight is a celebration of the silly fun of building an overpowered hero and tearing through hordes of monsters. We'd all love co-op (which is coming in the sequel, announced last year), but my advice is to appreciate Torchlight for what it is rather than complaining that it's not what you want your perfect dungeon crawler to be. You won't be disappointed.
