What, like for a Loreal advert?
I'm not sure what you mean by "worth it". If you're thinking of having it as your starter in a Gen IV game, I would rather pick Chimchar or Piplup. Infernape will be a good sweeping Pokemon by the end of the game, or Empoleon will make a good bulky sweeper with a nice typing.
Torterra's horrible speed and x4 weakness to Ice means that it will be swept by a Water type knowing Ice Beam before it can even do damage. If this is in-game, then you can pick Torterra if you don't plan of getting another grass type. If this is competitive play - no. There are better options, like Sceptile, Venusaur, Roserade or Breloom.
