While Diablo has pretty much ruled the Action-RPG genre for over a decade, thanks to the rise of digital distribution there has been a recent increase in high quality alternatives like Torchlight, Magicka and later this summer, Crimson Alliance. It’s got all of the standard dungeon-crawling accoutrements like loot, upgradeable equipment, environmental hazards/traps and of course, hordes of enemies to fight.
In a much appreciated nod to those of us who still prefer to play games in person with our friends rather than online with faceless strangers, the game features 4-player local co-op play in addition to Xbox Live play. It’s nice to know such luxuries haven’t been completely abandoned in today’s market. It looks like a pretty promising little loot-fest of a game, so head past the break to see the latest batch of screens while you wait for its September release exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade.
