I am playing it right now. I am halfway through. I would say the demo is short, but it is a good showcase of the overall game mechanic. I bought the game because I played the demo and liked it. I think they could have used the adventure mechanic (get, combine, use objects on environment) the game has even more, but I read some walkthrough and noticed that I missed some stuff you can do, so I guess I am not looking hard enough :). The biggest draw the game has is IMHO the exploration aspect. That is why it suprised me that Dark M. was critizised for it. A.F. probably has much less combat than D.M. too. Also the story of A.F. is nothing overly special but overall entertaining. So if you did not like the demo I don't know what to tell you. You might like it or you might not. I have not played D.M. yet so can't tell you how similar it is. Maybe play the demo again an try to find everything there is to explore.
