Torchlight II puts most sequels to shame, leaving no element of the original game unimproved. The mine setting of the first has been replaced by a huge world encompassing multiple dungeons, and with an overworld linking them together. Four novel character classes replace the more standard trio of the original, and there are a gaggle of adorable new pets.

However, the most significant feature is the game's long-awaited co-op mode, which allows up to six chums to collectively smash and loot Torchlight's fantasy-steampunk world for the first time.

A massive action-RPG in a small package. A few misjudged dalliances with the past don't hold it back from a bright future.
