wow...Titan quest got the same score as Sacred?

I loved titan quest - probably as good as the diablo games.

Sacred? It was HORRIBLE...I tried it a couple different times. HORRIBLE. How'd it get the same score?

Thanks to this thread, I have given my copy of Titan Quest another chance. So far, I'm at level 4 and loving every minute of it :)

I went with the Champion (or whatever the damage-dealing class is called) Mastery.

I might buy Loki and Titan Quest over Steam here in a minute. Apparently Titan Quest is the best out of all of them, but there is just something about Loki that makes me wanna get it too.

**edit - Just bought Titan Quest Gold off Steam. Original and Expansion for 20 bucks.

is there alot of hacking going on with titan quest online? since you can take your single player character online?

Yup, the lack of closed servers is the downfall of TQ/IT. Its still great fun in single player though, even better if you LAN up with friends.

Yeah...don't buy TQ if you want to play online. Almost no one plays legit nowadays.

my favorite class in titan quest to play was probably the rogue/hunter

Hunter/Fire is probably the best class I've seen

I like being able to switch between spear and bow.

I also liked TQ more than that score reflected...although it does really start to wear on you toward the end.
The real knock on TQ is that it doesn't like Vista as much as it should. I must've taken about a 30% fps dip when I installed Vista compared to XP.

TQ is an excellent game. There is a "Fan" patch out now that corrects a lot issues left over after the expansion. It deserved a much better score than it got. It's a shame Iron Lore went down. As far as online, it's a bit bare, but many folks play through Himachi.

I too am VERY excited for Diablo III!

And is DIvine Divinity really considered a DIablo clone? Seems more like an Ultima clone or something to me.

Yeah, Titan Quest + Immortal Throne is a solid 8.5 to me. I must've spent 200+ hours playing with buddies over LAN. =\

There's also Legend: Hand of God

But I'm going to give really serious advice don't touch any of those game with exception of Titan Quest and Sacred becouse those are only two clones that even come close to orginal.

Well and I quess Nox but it's almost as ancient as D II.

You having an issue when playing the expansion through steam where you cannot pick up anything, yet with the original (again through Steam) you can pick up things fine? It's bothering the hell outta me :mad:
