I played through the introduction and the first few tutorials. It seems to be very much an action-adventure in the vein of Gothic or Risen. Although I can't yet tell if it's anywhere near as open as those games. Control-wise, it's most similar to Risen 2 with a camera view that can rotate 360 degrees.
The visuals are pretty dated by today's standards, and the textures appear to be somewhat low-res even with all settings maxed. That's not surprising considering the entire install is only 2.7 GB.
Music is pretty good from what I've heard so far, and I like the atmosphere. It sort of reminds me of Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, but I think the prison setting in the beginning is probably the biggest reason for that.
