I think this game is one of the most fun co-op games I've played in years, and I don't understand where people come off saying it's repetitive, unoriginal, or that it lacks difficulty or depth. The only problems I've had with the game so far are just bug-fix related (a few disconnects and crashes), and the fact that the huntress is pretty much outclassed by every other hero.
I've clocked 21 hours into the game (a lot of it in just repeating the lower levels remaking characters on the open vs ranked servers when trendynet was being glitchy, or just restarting characters with new friends, etc), and just cleared the 2nd "act" of 3 last night. I've been most impressed with how the boss fights have turned out so far. They've all been a hectic scramble between maintaining defenses, healing, dps-ing the boss (or whatever related objective you need to kill), and making sure to replace/upgrade any faltering defenses when you get the chance.
That being said - if you are absolutely against playing co-op and want to try this game single-player, don't bother. It is a very poor single-player experience, and frankly was never meant to be played as a single-player game. Convince a friend or two to buy the game, or join a game w/ some random people online, but just don't even bother trying the game solo. It's 1/10th of what it is even with just 1 other person.
If I had to give a numbers rating, I'd give it the following:

If you like tower defense games, I recommend the Squire or the Mage, and if you like action beat them up games go ahead and try out the squire or the archer. I have no experience playing monk yet, and he is recommended for experienced players.
Also the controls are actually really straightforward, I don't know why the other reviewer seemed confused.Read more ›
I think the most difficult part of this game was getting started. I ended up joining games of higher levels to find good gear, and eventually I could finally manage on my own. Before that however, it was completely reliant upon a few strong characters to dominate the incredibly strong monsters of higher tiers and pretty much sit in the safety of the crystal (but far enough so you don't accidentally lure monsters to it!)
Lots of fun
Cheap! (I got it on sale for $2 here)
Engaging multiplayer game
Catchy idea - tower defense and character fighting!
DLC :( <-- seems to be a major factor in many games nowadays
Difficult to get started
Dungeon Defenders takes two genres that have been mainstays on PCs for years, tower defense and action RPG, and fuses them together brilliantly. After creating your character from a choice of 4 classes, you are thrust into an area where you have to protect a centrally-located crystal from waves of enemies. In addition to setting up your defenses (which are unique to each class), you are involved in real time combat against the invading enemies. Many enemies drop loot once they're killed, whether it be new weapons, armor, or equipment. The brilliant move here is that you will eventually accumulate weapons and gear for all the game's classes of heroes, including the ones that you are playing as in your current game. These items can be managed in-game, or from a tavern that serves as your hub world in between battles (the tavern also has a merchant and the helpful added feature of practice dummies to experiment with your new battle moves and abilities). Since all this loot can be stored in a huge item box, it encourages you to create new characters and experiment with the different loadouts using the loot you've gained in your battles. In addition to the loot system, each character class has skill trees that you can develop over time to boost character skills, tower attributes and special abilities.Read more ›
