Hmm, I don't know what I can say about the pros, but I like it.

The only cons I can say is that the game needs good hardware, or you have to set the settings on very low. The loading times are really high, compare to other state of the art games.

BTW this game is part of the latest Humble Bundle, so you can get it for pretty cheap.

Practice. Practice. Pratice.

Also, having higher frame rates is a huge boost.

How steep? I usually have quite a bit of patient when it comes to games but how many hours should I expect to put down until I can play the game moderatly good?

It's definetly a fun game but it's one of those games you need to sink a lot of time into, some people mentioned that it's a demanding game (mine runs @ 100 fps/ Everything set to the highest) but it does dip slightly when the action gets packed..

At the price it is now (humble bundle) it's worth a shot...

Cons: There's no matchmaking of any sort (although they're working on something) so sometimes you have to very patient with finding games that are actually balanced and fun. The green official servers (rookie friendly) are probably the best place to start when learning the basic mechanics, but the games on those are usually... not very good. More like an extended tutorial.

Once you're getting the hang of things you should try to find a server that, while still open to rookies, also has some experienced people on both sides who are active and vocal. When you finally get into a match that has a balanced amount of rookies who can listen and helpful veterans on both sides, it's gonna be one of the best games you will ever play.

Not like EVE Online steep. Somewhere around Starcraft 2 steep?

Depends on how good you are at picking stuff up. It takes time to play every class and try every role. Also other players seem exceptionally good at ruining your learning process by killing you. You may save up for fade for 20 minutes just to lose it in 10 seconds - whoops! But then you just learned one stupid thing to not do (lesson 1 - dont evolve to expensive life form out of base, seriously, dont). Ask people how to use lifeforms or weapons/jetpacks/exos before jumping in one. Or watch other people. Or look up tutorials online. Plenty of help around.

I would say 5-10 hours to be reasonably helpful as marine/skulk and much more to have well rounded grasp of everything else.

I wouldn't say SC2 level. Starcraft is the hardest competitive game in the world I don't think any reasonable person would deny that although learning curve wise it's probably not too bad thanks to a well designed tutorial system.

NS2 is hard and it does have a steep learning curve due to many factors but if you have FPS experience, especially Quake or more old school shooters and are willing to invest a bit of time into learning then you will be fine. Just know which servers to join because some aren't rookie friendly and people will get annoyed with you.

Fact is, the meta and gameplay changes dramatically during steam sales/humble bundle because rookies don't know how the game flows and a lot of vets want to keep that experience intact. I'm one of those guys, sometimes I just want a good game of competitive NS2 going but sometimes I'll be ok with commanding a team of rookies and helping them out.

I would suggest trying out the rookie only servers when you first start and let people know you are new and they will help you out.

Also no matter how bad the outlook of the game looks it can always be turned around ( that is the best part of the game imo) :)

Used to play NS1 alot, i just cant get into this version, as a Xeno you die in seconds and the whole game doesnt feel as balanced or as well layed out as NS1, glad i never bought this full retail.
