TL2 has been a big disappointment to me as well, I've played the demo for 5 minutes and find it boring. D3 was better than TL2, scary enough - at least I got a week of playing time in D3.

To be fair, 5 minutes isn't exactly a lot of time to see what the game has to offer. Play an hour on Veteran with a melee engineer, it's pretty darned amusing to me I get people not liking the art style though, it's certainly not for everyone. The Outlander class needs some tuning too, I feel bad for people who start out with that one. In any case I made a couple of basic class mods for the first game and have plans to work on this one when they release the mod kit soon. My play time counter will probably at or beyond Diablo 3 and more importantly I've enjoyed that time a lot more. I feel like I spent a hundred plus hours of Diablo 3 waiting for the good stuff which never arrived.

I think action RPGs in general need to break out of their mold. I was really bummed to see countryside, then a desert and jungle just like Diablo 2. Diablo 3 follows mostly the same map formula there too. Something they did do right in Torchlight 2 was the loot. Fun to collect, lots of variety and tons of interesting ways to obtain, mix, gem and enchant everything.
