Runic Games is preparing to release Torchlight 2 a month or so after the release date of Diablo 3 to avoid comparing Torchlight 2 as a “cheap alternative Diablo clone”. But judging from the game itself, it managed to stand up as an equal adversary to the much popular action-RPG as Torchlight offers some features the fans always loved that Diablo 3 had removed; “offline” singleplayer campaign and LAN connectivity for multiplayer.
