I'm playing it right now. It's a bizarre design decision to be sure, and for a CRPG, the game is terribly linear. It definitely has issues. Though playing it makes you realize that this type of game (P&P infused, story-driven, CRPG) was really missing for a long time - just like Grimrock did last year for dungeon crawling. (And no, the mobile dungeon crawl dreck ala Etrian Odyssey of the last decade wasn't even near a decent replacement before that.) I'm hoping it'll spark a small revival of the genre, including some contenders who do a better job at it (Wasteland 2, Torment?). It also has Steam Workshop support, I'm hoping the community will also produce some quality content for it mid-term.
