We Got This Covered
Many will be more than willing to put the few gripes aside for a single player experience that features randomized dungeons, continued gameplay after finishing the 20 main storyline, and a high fun factor. Set to cost 1200 Microsoft points upon release, Torchlight is an action/RPG must have in any XBLA gamer’s library.

Der Test von Torchlight scheint eigentlich ein bisschen zu schön, um wahr zu sein. Die Spielzeit ist mit guten 12 Stunden und der Motivation für mindestens einen weiteren Durchgang alleine schon riesig. Zudem dürft ihr euch dank zufallsgenerierter Level nach dem erstmaligen Durchspielen in eine unendliche Höhle stürzen, in der ihr bis zu eurem Lebensende Monster verdreschen könnt. Das Suchtprinzip mit unzähligen Ausrüstungsgegenständen und zahlreichen monsterverseuchten Abschnitten greift sofort und auch auf technischer Seite gibt es kaum Kritikpunkte. Für 1200 Microsoft Points erwartet euch mit Torchlight ein tolles Hack and Slay, das wir nur für die schlechten Synchronsprecher und die maue Geschichte abstrafen mussten. Solltet ihr mit dem Genre auch nur im entferntesten etwas anfangen können, ist euer Geld hier sehr gut angelegt.

Given Blizzard's determination to make us wait as long as possible for Diablo III, you may as well sink it into a game that eats time for breakfast.
The Xbox 360 version of Torchlight manages to offer everything that was good about the PC original, as well as introduce a few vital tweaks that make this a must-have title for dungeon crawler fans.
Torchlight est un excellent jeu pour le XLA. On pouvait craindre l’adaptation d’un jeu PC sur la console et notamment le passage de la souris à la manette. On ne peut que saluer le travail d’adaptation tant les commandes se révèlent intuitives et souples. Malgré cet enthousiasme quant aux qualités de Torchlight, on ne peut que regretter que l’adaptation du jeu sur le XLA n’ait pas bénéficié de l’ajout d’un mode coopératif qui aurait placé le jeu comme l’un des tout meilleurs sur le XLA. Il faudra attendre le deuxième opus, qui, au vu des ventes de ce Torchlight (1200 Mpts au passage) ne devrait pas se faire prier pour arriver sur notre console. Et lui offrira ce tant attendu mode deux joueurs ! Vivement !
Just Push Start
Torchlight is a highly enjoyable action-RPG game that even non RPG fans may find themselves playing it. This is because the hack-n-slash type gameplay offers more freedom for the player and you can attack more frequently than if it used the old turn-based system. Despite the game having no multiplayer and Xbox-like graphics, these minor mishaps do not deter what is a great game. Action-RPG gaming at its finest.
In fact in some ways the pace of the game feels like it's more naturally suited for a controller, despite the few glitches that end up rearing their head. Movement feels smoother with the analogue stick, and that inevitably helps when you're crawling your way through hordes of skeletons. While PC players might miss the standard hot keys they were used to, Torchlight on XBLA is proof that they're by no means necessary. Ten years on from Diablo and it still has enough influence over modern games to power a generation of clones, but both Torchlight and its developer prove to be one the perfect students of the genre.

Torchlight kan varmt rekommenderas till dig som gillar genren. Ett co-op-läge hade varit mums, lite mindre repetition likaså (det är dock aningen oundvikligt för denna speltyp), men överlag är detta en titel där du får mycket spel för slantarna. Iväg med dig nu, ner i gruvan och slakta skelett och leta dyrbarheter.
Torchlight does offer a decent experience that will be enjoyed by Diablo fans but some people may find the game repetitive gameplay and environment wise. Torchlight doesn’t feature any multi-play or co-op, which kind of kills the replay value but it’s supposed to be in Torchlight 2. Torchlight does have plenty to offer in terms of enjoyment and game time and the good does outweigh the bad allowing Torchlight to be as enjoyable on Xbox Live as it was on the PC.
