What level did you get to?
Not high at all, but I'm not sure. It wasn't more than a handful of levels. Between the questing that seems designed for you to click through it and follow an arrow rather than actually get involved in it and struggling to do basic things with the UI I had no interest in forcing my way through in hopes that it gets better later. My problems with it aren't with lack of skills or abilities or the sorts of things that resolve as you level, it's the basic functionality and interface that I hate.
Yeah, it didn't grab me either...for many of the same reasons. There is a solid contingent of folks who do dig it though. It ain't for me but I think it will be around awhile if they stick to their design plan. If they backtrack and start trying please everyone, I see that going badly.
