Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Torchlight is a RPG (Role-Playing Game) where you can play as three different classes. The Destroyer who excels at melee combat, the Alchemist who excels at Magic and the Vanquisher who excels at archery (Bow's and Arrow's). In this game you an also have pet's to access you with our journey. (Each pet is available no matter what class you choose) You can get a Wolf, a Lynx and a Sea monster. There are also fish, that you feed to your pet and it will turn into something else. Like for example (this is true) : the Improbably Large Fish will turn your pet that you have in to a troll. (Each pet you choose the fish will be the same and have the same effects and turn your pet in to the same thing). The game contains quite a bit of blood, but you can turn it off in the options section. The game has a lot f weapons such as: Swords, Bows, Staffs, Cannons (Pistol), Clubs and Hatchets. This is a great game that will keep your kids entertained for a long a time!

This title has:

Great messages
