I played the mod, and bought the standalone. I've had a lot of fun with both.
Also I think it's a great thing that they allow people who want to play a game to play it early. It's a risk to buy into something at such an early stage but if you watch lots of videos and some decent reviews you know exactly what you are getting into when you buy into early access games. I always loved getting into any betas I could, this just allows me to play games I want to play even earlier. And on them not releasing the full game any time soon, I think that is a GREAT thing. It means the game will be worked on for a long time and will have a lot more features than it currently has. And imo, it is currently fun for me.
I've gotten a few early access games and never received something unexpected with them.
Natural Selection 2, Insurgency 2, Arma 3, Kenshi, and Blade Symphony were all early access games I got and I enjoyed them all.
