Default Re: Torchlight - A review from a Diablo 2 fan

Glad I did.

Torchlight is (almost) EXACTLY like Fate. In fact, it is so much like Fate I'm wondering if a copyright lawsuit is in the devs' future.

Now, Fate is a good game : cheap, not too deep, easy to play, good graphics, enough variety to keep one playing for 10+ hours. But, and here's the thing, I ALREADY OWN FATE. So I'm not about to plunk down another twenty to play a game I already own.

Take the advice of the honest gamers who are both familiar with Fate and Torchlight:

If you've never played Fate: get Torchlight.

If you've played Fate and would like to play it again: get Torchlight.

If you've played Fate but you impulsively bought Torchlight thinking that it was a different game only to discover that it is actually Fate with a different title here are your options:

1) Stick to your mantra on the forums ("It's not Fate!") but silently lament your purchase at home
2) Admit it's just like Fate and that you hastily bought it.

With option 1 you'll have our sympathy and a little *wink*. With option 2 you'll have our respect.
FINALLY! A REAL person with a brain!

Mizzer has the exact same feelings I do. That means my assumption is correct.

Diablo 2 is NOTHING like this. I repeat. NOTHING. And if you think "point click die" = Diablo 2, then you are a damn retard. Diablo 2 requires a great deal of strategy and planning throughout the entire game. There are many "copies" of Diablo 2. None that come close. They all add their own twist that ruins the game.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Diablo 2 is the best game I've ever played. You can call me a "fan boy" of it all you want. I don't turn my nose up at games that "copy" diablo 2. Titan Quest was great fun. This game... This game isn't fun.

BadBoy. In two weeks, you won't be playing this game any more. I guarantee it. Diablo 2 is 10 ****ing years old. I still play it to this day. Thats the difference in a classic and a some $20 cheap junk game. 2 weeks... 10 years. If you think they are still the same, you have something wrong with your head.
