After reading the first impression by someone else, I noticed there were too many comparisons of Torchlight to other games. Max Schaefer told someone that the art style was kind of like Diablo and Scoobydoo meshed together. While I find that a close description, Jason Beck said it best with, "Incredibles meets Dragon's Lair." Immediately I could imagine Torchlight again and it was a perfect description.
From what they have released so far it doesn't grab me. Maybe when they are closer to the finished product they might show off something that is interesting but as of now it is just a filler that I'll probably soon forget about.
Plus It is only single player and it is just a launching game for there MMO project. (which will have the same artistry/graphics style)
Lets wait and see...

Torchlight isn't competition for D3. It has quite a different theme and both games target different audience. You should have read some interviews first. It looks cartony because that's how it should look. I'm sure they will return to the Diablo-ghotic-epic style in one of their future projects, but such a project won't be called Torchlight.
There is one revolutionary thing about Torchlight, though. After the single player is out they are going to make Torchlight MMO and that will be an action-RPG game. We know hundreds of mmorpgs around where battles are rather static compared to Diablo games. Now imagine a fast-paced dynamic fights settled in MMO world.
