Players will choose from among three character classes, and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels, with a huge variety of creepy monsters, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. Randomized levels and an ‘endless dungeon’ unlocked after completing the main game ensure a long-lived gameplay experience.

    Seriously, no multiplayer?

    I will end up buying this as I prefer to play it on a console, but yeah, no multiplayer is kind of lazy.

    I agree. I will be picking up Torchlight 2 instead, that will have MP over Xbox Live.

    it has been known since it was announced that this game had no Multiplayer.. It’s an almost direct PC port of a game that without mods has no multiplayer. I don’t see why everyone is picking this to complain about.

    hopefully if enough of us buy it they’ll send out a multiplayer sequel. I’m in.

    @StormRaging, maybe we just read it on here first and never knew about the game before now and saw it didn’t have multiplayer.

    I knew there was no multi, its still a bummer tho, this genre demands it.

    Grabbed the demo but I probably won’t buy, promised myself id vote with my dollars on not buying $15 games anymore.

    Yeah, I knew it didn’t have MP as well, doesn’t make it any less annoying. Let’s face it, it was disappointing that there wasn’t MP on the PC version too. It’s a great game though, worth picking up if you like dungeon crawlers and don’t care about multi-player.

    Yeah, there’s no multiplayer — but Torchlight has pretty much perfected the Diablo-style gameplay formula (don’t know how good it is with a controller though). I thought it was easily worth the original $20 price on PC.

    Bought the pc version for around 2€, but never got around to play further than the first couple of levels. I will remedy this with XBLA version. Still a bit miffed though, that the ferret isn’t available instead of the ugly Chakawary.

    I don’t care that there isn’t any mp mode. I like to unwind while playing a good single player once in a while.

    Too busy playing Dragon Age II or I would buy this on day one. Perhaps when I am done becoming the Champion of Kirkwall.😀

    1200pts on a 200MB file just isn’t cutting it nowadays. Looks fun, though. I really wish there would be more thought going into game pricing on stuff like this, half the games on Arcade are overpriced so don’t sell, there are crappy games from three years ago that are still the same price. Where else do we see this?

    @CuddlyClamShot: What does size has to do with pricing?
    What is the right price in your opinion per MB?

    @CuddlyClamShot: If you said 1200MS for a two hour game doesn’t cut it I could completely understand and agree with you. But to limit what you will experience because of the MB size is silly.

    You’re complaining about the $15 price point for a game that was released for $20 on the PC last year with less features, more bugs, and no achievements? UNBELIEVABLE. Insta-buy here. If ANY game on XBLA is worth the price asked, its this one. And I could care less about multiplayer.

    I guess I would expect a MB game where a fifteen dollar game looks and plays decent. I just played the trial, I could care less about a super-small game release on PC. If you expect this in a fifteen dollar package that’s what you get, the game itself just isn’t very good. I got tired of playing it and I just played the trial.

    The game itself is pretty standard stuff, it seems like a $3 Indie Game to tell you the truth. If you guys have complete wood for this game good for you, I have to go wash up my taint.
