okay game, for 9- 11

this game can be pretty bloody and gory, but the age rating goes down to 10 or 11 after you turn of the blood, which you can do in the settings. if it is still is to violent, consider getting your child fate, which is nowhere near as violent as any other rpg's like torchlight 2.

Great game, a little to bloody

A amazing game overall, diffenitly worth the $20. the blood is incredibly frequant and you fight humenoid (and occasionally human) enemys. though the blood can be turned off. you can play on public games, so you never know what you will come across in those.

a great game

torchlight 2 is a great adventure game! lots of content! if your not the type for the blood and guts there is an option in the settings to turn it off. i did find that it does NOT turn off purple goo or squished green spiders.

A Great Family Game

We bought Torchlight 2 for everyone in our family, and we play it together sometimes on Family Game Night through our local Ethernet. (We wired all the rooms in our house with Ethernet, so we have our own network.) The game is a fun point-and-click adventure that takes up where Torchlight left off. To begin a new game, you pick your character, either a berserker, an embermage, an outlander, or an engineer. You can choose to be either gender, with a plethora of choices for hair style, hair color, and face. Then you pick and name a pet. Pets are important, because you can send your pet back to town to sell items you don't want and buy items you do want, like healing potions. You start by getting a quest to go to a nearby town. The beginning leg of the journey is rather easy, regardless of difficulty, allowing the player to learn the interface as he goes. Once in town, you get more quests and uncover more of the storyline. I have played the main quest to completion three times, as an embermage, outlander, and engineer. Torchlight 2 contains lots of side quests, a hidden quest, and a lot of entertaining options along the way. For people worried about privacy or safety, you can play the game all the way through by yourself. You do not need to log into a network. Torchlight 2 also has a local co-op option, with is how I play with my family. Again, only known people can (hopefully) access your local network. While the game is mainly played for fun, if you play with others, you learn how to work as a group. Also, figuring out which weapons or armor to use requires some math knowledge. Overall, I give Torchlight 2 a five-star rating.

went overboard on the blood and gore

the only reason that i think its for older kids is the blood and gore other than that its a great you can explore and fight off monsters and get cool weapons!!! you can turn off the blood and gore in settings then it would make it a 10 and under so worth the 20$ awesome!!!

My two cents on Torchlight II.

Torchlight II is an incredibly fun and easy-to-play dungeon-crawler type game that I recommend for ages 9 and up. Although it has blood and gore by default, in the options screen, you can easily turn it off. There is no sexual content, no swearing, no drinking, and it's quite easy to play and fun. It has some pretty cool and lovable characters, and I really recommend it for anyone who loves adventuring!
