I am bored.
My character is about twenty levels into Torchlight and about twenty levels down and there is quite a lot of repetitive landscape, monsters and battles. So much so that I’ve even second guessed my location, thinking that I accidentally entered the same portal twice.
I do really love the pet aspect. You can choose between a dog (wolf) or cat (lynx) to accompany you into the depths. Along the way you can equip them with two rings, an amulet and two spells (which they will automatically cast). They can also carry a large quantity of items if they won’t fit in your pack and if you send them into town while you are dungeon crawling, they will sell everything in their pack and return with the gold; VERY useful.
I chose a lynx and named him Loki after my own cat to accompany my hero Melissa into the depths under Torchlight. I chose the Vanquisher class because I’ve always been intrigued by ranged combat and combined with my pet, I’ve been pretty unstoppable thusfar.
I was really excited to try out Torchlight and Torchlight II after hearing such great things about the series and I do hope it improves. I’ve never given up on a game yet, and I don’t plan on giving up on this game either, but I definitely don’t feel the urge to play it as often due to it’s repetitive nature.
