Recettear is godly.

They are very different games. Torchlight is much more Diablo-esque in that you basically control with point and click, pay attention to loot levels and stuff, following a story you could care about or not, and it's basically just a click-fest. Very similar to Diablo.

Recettear is extremely different. It's better suited to controller, with more precise movement and action controls than mouse style games, the focus is more about bringing back ALL of your best loot to sell, rather than filtering out everything but what's superior to what you're wearing, and it's easily 50% about managing your store.

Honestly, of the two, I'd probably suggest Recettear simply because it's different, and does a great job at making a very entertaining game from a different playstyle and perspective.

I couldn't get into the cutesy item store managment game that is Recettear. Just not my thing. Torchlight 2 is one of my fave games of the last few years and, to me, is the game that Diablo 3 should have been.

I do wish Recettear would have coop. It has multiple character classes, after all.

Uh, wut? Controllers being more precise than a mouse? How bad is your mouse?
