“…The graphics are great, the music engrossing, and the gameplay addictive.” 8.6/10 – IGN
“…a great dungeon crawl from the designers of the first two Diablo games and the cult hit Fate. Runic Games has forged a letter-perfect copy of the action role-playing formula with fast-paced combat and cartoonish graphics that will keep you clicking until the wee hours…And there are even a couple of "wait, there's more” kickers. Along with being one of the best action RPGs to hit the PC in many moons, Torchlight comes with absurdly undemanding system requirements along with a netbook mode so that you can play it on just about any system. So not only do you get a great game, but you get a great deal in every respect. Stop reading and start playing." 8/10 Gamespot
“…a refreshing – though not revolutionary – dungeon crawler that will occupy gamers for 10–15 hours on the first run-through, and perhaps dozens more across varying difficulty levels and experiments with different character classes…The graphics are great, the music engrossing, and the gameplay addictive. While the lack of multiplayer at first tastes bitter, the single-player campaign more than makes up for it.” 8.6/10 – IGN(less)
