I played an earlier demo of the game and found it to be quite boring. It was very "talky", the "fights" were simplistic, infrequent, too easy and unexciting and there was way too much "running around."
Now, let me say the same thing in a different way.
The game has tons and tons of dialogue from its cast of colorful characters. The fight system is intuitive easy to get into. The focus is not on action, however, but on the rich, huge environments with clever puzzles and little surprises to be found in every corner.
So, my point is, the game struck me as something very interesting and potentially appealing...just not to me. Which is odd, because early trailers (which made it look like an action game) got me really excited. However, I can't fault them for turning what seemed to be a generic action game (with good visuals) into a totally new experience.
