Torchlight 2 For Nintendo Switch Review

A few days ago, I was provided with a copy of Torchlight 2 for Nintendo Switch by Runic Games. This is my first time playing the praised RPG, and I wished I played it way earlier. Torchlight II is an action role-playing dungeon crawler in the same sense as the Diablo series & Grim Dawn.

The award-winning action, isometric, RPG is back, bigger, and better than ever! Torchlight II original released on PC in 2012 and is filled to the brim with randomized levels, enemies and loot. Capturing all the flavour and excitement of the original, Torchlight II expands the world and adds features players wanted most, including online and LAN multiplayer. Is this game as engaging as the Diablo games and other similar RPGs? Let’s find out!

The Return To Vilderan

While the story does seem simplistic at first, the further you progress, the more interesting the narrative gets. If the main story doesn’t interest you, then the side missions most likely will. There are many missions to fulfil such as clearing out catacombs, exploring a pirates cove and more. However, while the story of the game suffice, an RPG is nothing without its gameplay

A Wizard Is Never Late…

However, once I levelled up and obtained my first ability, I began to have a great time. The skill trees options I had were Inferno, Frost & Storm. Generally, in RPGs, I love to balance out them out with each skill point to have variety. Personally, I had so much fun using the abilities as they make me feel like a powerful wizard annihilating the hordes of evil. While the loot system isn’t as diverse or exciting as Diablo or Borderlands. I still get very hyped when I find rare or powerful loot and make my character look like a badass.

What’s A Good Fantasy Without A Good World

With the appealing art style, the game is complemented with nice graphical details in the game. Such as enemies exploding in blood from a critical hit or small environmental details like fireflies and little critters crawling around. The music and sound effects are great as well that greatly suit in whatever scene or environment your in whether it’s quiet, damp caves or burning village invasions. The only thing I wish this game had more mob enemies. I feel like they get a bit repetitive.

Final Verdict

You can buy the game for $19.99 on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One & Nintendo Switch right now.
