My experience was that TL1 was pretty good about making it hard to build a toon too weak to beat the game, and TL2 was worse about that. I found TL2 plenty fun enough up until I hit a brick wall 3/4 of the way through. For $4 it is not good-to-the-last-drop, but the journey is mostly fun.
dyscode: To celebrate the 28Month late release of the OS X Version of Torchlight II it's 80% off on Steam! (€3.79, $4)
babark: It seems this is the lowest it has ever been, and it has never been in any bundle, and it seems the developers have no plans to make it DRM-free. Should I buy this? There any reason to wait and be hopeful? I enjoyed the original Torchlight right up until the end, where it turned out the way I had been levelling up my character made it basically impossible to beat the final boss, so I gave up.
If you haven't played Van Helsing, that frequently goes on sale for about $4. The core game (but not DLC) for VH1 is DRM free once downloaded from Steam, not sure about #2. I can't say if VH is much of an improvement mechanically, but it is a pretty take on the genre.
