Good jump&run with some weaknesses. The story is told via the protagonists diary and comicbook panels at various points in the game. I played this on a controller, but the keyboard controls seem adequate.
+ great graphics
+ setting and 'cutscenes' obviously inspired by (but not copied from) The Walking Dead comic series
+ fun core gameplay
- story has some major plotholes / inconsistencies
- I'd have preferred more action (a la Shadow Complex). I'd say the game is 95% platforming, 5% action
- gameplay is often trial&error, which I don't like in storydriven games. Fortunately, loadtimes are short and there are many checkpoints.
- controls seem sluggish at times, especially on timed bits of the game (helicopter chase...)
- fairly short (one playthrough: 3-4 hours)
- no replayability
Conclusion: I'd say it's worth it at the <$5 pricepoint.
Get this game the next time it's on sale. Not sure about the MMO aspect (haven't gotten into the interesting dungeons/raids yet), but the singleplayer part is OUTSTANDING. Most of the quests are interesting and FUN to do because they further the lore and the story of the game. Some missions actually require you to use Google or other means of research to solve puzzles (for example, there's a quest where you receive a bit of Morse code which you need to run through an (external, on your harddrive) decoder to get coordinates). If you like supernatural elements and conspiracy theories, you'll love the setting.
Levelling your character is great as well, as you can build your skillset of 14 abilities out of hundreds of unlockable abilities and recombine them to suit your current task. There's no 'cookie cutter' build as there are many extremely viable ways to play your character. Note: your character always has one DPS tree available, no matter what your initial choice of skills is.
A weak part of the game that I've noticed (from early- to midgame) is the WoW-style combat (button mashing, but less static - you can move while casting and do active dodges a la Guild Wars 2).
Will update this once I get to the multiplayer part, but I can already say that if you go into this game expecting a great singleplayer experience, you will not be disppointed. The MMO aspect (dungeons, grouping, PvP) is just a great bonus feature.
