Titan Quest impresses IGN

There's a review of Titan Quest over at IGN. The mythology action CRPG scores up an 8.1 and has the word Impressive written below it. Not sure what that means in the vast scheme of things, so I'm guessing they liked it. Anyway, here's a clip:
Like most other RPGs, your character starts out simply. In fact, he doesn't have a class until you've achieved level 2, at which point a slew of class type options open up, although their advantages and disadvantages are not explained in the manual and only briefly explained in-game. This invites replayability and individual exploration of the game's style, which is rarely a bad thing, but there's no randomization of creatures or terrain to reward multiple adventures, unlike the Diablo games. While custom-crafted maps can allow for more eye-pleasing environments, the gameplay too often boils down to engaging with one clump of enemies after another who are skulking around a treasure chest or just skulking in general.

I tend to agree with the skulking assessment there. I don't think it's due to a lack of randomly generated terrain, but there's just something about the demo that left me not remotely interested in anything more to do with the game.
