I have posted a detailed review at http://www.walkingsimulator.games/caligo.html but here are quickly the pros and cons I see:

Pro
- Many different scenes: from very colourful to dark
- So beautiful sometimes that you can't stop taking pictures
- Dialogs can be skipped
- Theatrical music

con
- Not as immersive as it could be
- No choices except one at the end, no interactivity except picking up drawings
- Completely linear
- No dot in the middle to prevent motion sickness (had minor problems with it)
- Invisible walls in many places, especially in the fantasy part
- Unnerving auto-panning camera
- Sometimes you're moved unexpectedly
- Bug: fell off the electric chair area - had to restart the game as this resulted in an endless fall
- Only around 1-1.5 hours of gameplay

All in all the idea is good but it fails to succeed. It looks great but the subconscious connection just didn't happen for me unlike in similar games like The Stanley Parable or The Beginner's Guide. I played a game - I didn't experience something in my life (which was different in Dear Esther).
