Yeah, feels to me like torchlight is just one of those games that's cool at the beginning but loses its luster pretty quick. There are roughly three quests, and when you finish one, the guy gives you a literally identical quest that's a bit deeper in the dungeon.
The randomization and the fact that the character classes can be taken in different directions still makes it worth getting on the cheap, but don't expect to be glued to it for days on end.
I use it as a great "filler game" - load it up once every few days, play for half an hour, get bored, play something else.
