I enjoyed it a lot. Played it all the way through 2 times in a row. It's a bit strange that the RPG mechanics are mapped to a 3rd person shooter. You can influence more than it seems at first glance, but it's somewhat hidden. Of course the action is weaker than in a pure shooter.
The core strength are choices & consequences. You have to make "24" style decisions under time pressure during the dialogs. This can get quite intense.

Certainly worth a shot at 5$, but still hit or miss. Play at least until the world opens up. The first couple of levels are just the intro.
