Unfortunately you won’t find many PC or console games like Diablo that live up to its wonder but here are some options that might interest you if you’re keen to find something similar.
It’s been a couple of years already since Diablo III came out and even the recent expansion pack may not have kept you busy for long (unless you’ve been tempted to pick up a next gen copy and start again) so if you are desperate to find an action RPG that has a familiar dark fantasy feel here are your best options.
If you’re looking to pick only one of the Diablo alternative games then you should probably make it this one.
It’s pretty much a sure thing that fans of the series will love this title, regardless of your impressions of the original `Torchlight´
With a bit more freedom to do as you please with your character (skills aren’t restricted to skill trees) the ways to build and equip your character are endless.
Coupled with massive amounts of quests and areas to explore the only thing missing was the option of multiplayer. Thankfully this has been corrected and Torchlight 2 now supports up to 6 player co-op and PvP.
This one really is a no brainer. If you loved Diablo then this is the closest you’re going to find to another game like it.
Sacred 2: Fallen Angel was deemed by many Diablo fans to be the closest console comparison to Diablo for many years until Diablo itself arrived on consoles.
Don’t worry if you’ve never played the original, this is a prequel set an epic 2,000 years before the original game in the series.
The game is an action RPG and allows you to tread one of two paths, light or shadow. The path you choose determines the character’s end goal and although the paths often intersect there are many differences between the two.
In this way it reminds me of the Ninety-Nine Nights series which intersects many different characters as each character follows their own path.
If you love a good choice of class this is for you. With seven different classes ( seraphim, shadow warrior, high elf, dryad, temple guardian, inquisitor and the ever popular dragon mage) there are plenty of different ways to play this game and you’re bound to find something that suits your individual style.
There is, of course, a multiplayer option in which you can join a friend’s game or vice versa only to return to your own game with any new items once you’re done.
Titan Quest is another hack ‘n’ slash action RPG that was released in 2006. Despite its age it may be worth a look as it offers something slightly different and fun.
The game takes place in three ancient worlds, ancient Greece, ancient Rome and Silk Road in Asia.
It may seem a strange setting for a game like this but once you discover that it was the brainchild of one of the co-creators of Age of Empires it suddenly makes a lot of sense.
Basically the story is a battle between the gods and men of the time and with up to six players allowed at one time this is an interesting twist on other historically set games.
I loved Baldur’s Gate II and the original Ninety-Nine Nights was right up my street but if you’re looking for more of a balanced game then any of the above options should suit you.
If you’re after a console game then Sacred 2 is definitely worth a try, but if you prefer the PC then it should be Torchlight 2 all the way in my opinion.
