Titan Quest, and Iron Lore, really deserved better than it got. Innovative, no, but it was an outstanding refinement of the ARPG formula, with a sprawling world and huge variety of enemies and loot. It is exactly what it was meant to be. It's too late now to do Iron Lore any good (or THQ, the way things are going) but if you like the Diablo-type thing, this is definitely worth picking up. (The Immortal Throne expansion pack was good too.)

Thanks for reading!

I've debated picking up Immortal Throne. I probably will eventually.

I do think Titan Quest is the best of the Diablo knock-offs. Not that I've played many, but it's better than Fate (which is dull) or Torchlight (which is still pretty cool).

I played this through not that long ago. Plenty to like but I did have a couple nitpicks. The first may well be related to my raw melee build, in that I never really had a chance to fight more than one enemy at a time. As I advanced I was able to hit harder and faster but I was still chopping down one enemy, then the next, bugging out to drink a potion if necessary, then back to chopping up the one I was fighting. It may well be that choosing ranged or magical skills would have given me the crowd control I now lacked, so can't really fault the game for that.

My other nitpick was the completely overpowered final boss. It appears that the approach that used to work was stamped out by an update somewhere along the way and now I just had to feel the pain. It took some real cheesiness on my part to get to see the credits, but when you're in this far into any game, you're not exactly going to throw in the towel.

I also played with a melee build, but I dual-wielded. There are certain dual-wield skills you can learn that have a certain chance of hitting enemies around you. I think that was the main way, if not the only way, to nail multiple enemies with a melee build. I was able to chop down two or three at a time that way, plus I had poisonous attacks. Unfortunately, they didn't give you a whirl attack or something you could activate to nail multiple enemies like you could in Diablo.

I do agree on the final boss, though he was still doable. It just felt like he was never going to die, especially since you couldn't really sit still and hack away at the guy. I thought the path leading up to him, especially the parts where you fight a few cyclopes at a time, was also irritating.
