Should I purchase this game?
I watched a youtuber (PauseUnpause) play it one time around and thought it looked really fun. But, after reading these mixed reviews and seeing the low rating it received, I'm not so sure. How many hours of gameplay will I get out of it going through all the characters? Thanks

I took a brief look at this game but personally I don't buy a game unless there's a demo. There are not many games I've been happy with the purchase that I purchased before trying out a demo. I see no reason there isn't one.

Well you need to know what this game is exactly. There are 7 characters and you play with 3 at a time. You get repeat puzzles between their unique worlds. The puzzles are pretty fun, even if they are simple. There is some humor. Mostly it is like put one object here, more another character to open the door, move object through, activate it with third character. Would be ideal coop if three people were playing at once. But as single person switching between characters it could get painful to run around. I didn't find it annoying. I really liked the game and played through it twice. I played onthe Xbox though. Not sure how it is on PC. It is like fetch quest puzzle type of game in 2d perspective.

Without spoiling it too much, the game and various decisions characters make is mostly like a game people play for the sake of playing, instead of some special reward at the end. Contemplative if you want to describe it like that. Some puzzles could be hard, but once figured out they are easy.

I think it is definitely worth any money under $8

It's currently on sale (unless it just ended) so if you were considering it, I would purchase it right now. So far it's a decent game in my opinion, nothing extroadinary, but I buy it if not just to support Double Fine. I'm not sure if I would buy it for $15 (normal price... also I'm a cheapster) but for half-price, sure! Maybe people are saying "it sucks" because they expect so much of double fine.
