Torchlight 2 Patch Adds New Pets

The game has no staying power. I finished it once, and couldn't really see a reason to continue. It's better than D3 in the sense that you can actually continue to level and put points in the skills you like, but it lacks some kind of reason to continue playing. I can't put my finger on it.

The combat and item systems aren't as fun as diablo 2, specifically diablo 2 had fighting game elements merged with the action rpg genre which made combat fun in and of itself besides just the loot gambling mechanic.

The item generation isn't as solid as diablos and the skills the classes have make the items feel half baked. All the small mistakes in design add up to lameness, it's above average, but Diablo was king of the hill. The skill tree's in TL2 weren't thought out or polished enough.

Then there is the odd art style and lack of grityness. The world lacks any kind of solid atmosphere and charm in the levels. The world itself has a nonsensical story (not even a real attempt at a basic story either). Then on top of all that is the rather poorly designed hybrid classes that make it completely forgettable.

Diablo 2 had the PALADIN. I still remember that bastard and want to PLAY HIM AGAIN but dammit D3 was a giant disappointment. The fact that world of warcraft came along and the old Diablo 2 team got disbanded means it's highly unlikely we will see a Diablo 2 caliber game for another decade or two if ever. It remains to be seen if blizzard can learn to make a better diablo.

I know why..at least I know my own personal reasons. There are a lot of reasons to dig this game, with or without making comparisons to D3, but the one thing that had me really fired up to get it was modding. To not have the official editor yet has basically killed the game for me. Too many other games to play to keep playing the same exact game over and over.

Another patch just came and went...still no editor. By the time Runic gets around to releasing it, nobody will be left that is interested in using it.

This game is a lot like J. Howard Marshall: It came and went!

Sorry.

Don't be sorry. You saved me from posting the same thing.

I dodged a bullet, there.
