In real life, dungeons are pretty gruesome, tightly cramped and tedious places. They were built in the medieval castles as prisons or torture chambers for common prisoners or political enemies. In the gaming world though, they have been the staple diet for the RPG adventure game since the dawn of gaming back in the early ’80s. Torchlight II on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch carries on this tradition of dungeon crawling and exploring with a sequel to the first game, Torchlight. Are you strong enough to brave the depths?
