One of the recent patches improved the graphics somewhat so it doesn't look as ugly as it did before.

Definitely getting this. Din's Curse is a brilliant game, and the new features in Demon War sound awesome.

As much as I would like to claim otherwise, gameplay is not more important than graphics, to me. Though for me, I'm more about UI than pixels, render settings, etc...

Anyhow, the point is... I tried this game, but couldn't do it, because of how bad I thought it looked/felt/played/something-I-can't-remember.

The graphics might be poor but it does have a tons of replayability because everything in the game world is randomly generated.

It is a clone. I enjoyed Torchlight much more. And the graphics are horrible. I couldn't get past them even with the good game play. But you should try it and decide for yourself.

I had the exact opposite experience - I enjoyed Torchlight for a while, but I got tired quickly of how shallow it was in terms of gameplay. On the other hand, I still play Din's Curse regularly, and I enjoy it a lot more, even with "horrible" graphics (which aren't "horrible" for me - adequate would be the word I'd use).

In any case, that's excellent advice - since there's a demo available, anyone can try it out and see how well it works for them.

Really? Maybe I will try the demo; it looks like Yet Another Diablo Clone, with worse graphics, so I had written it off.
