I happen to enjoy playing this game regularly. It is harsh, gritty and *very* realistic, something which will most likely turn off non-roleplayers. You can earn money without killing things, and since it's level-less, hack'n'slashers will probably not like it.
If you're a newbie, I recommend getting used to permadeath quite often. I have been playing for about nine months and have been through (at last count) 18 characters. Once you get the hang of it, your characters will live longer.
Read the doc files before and after you put in an app; they'll give you invaluable help in playing the game (and surviving.)
That's it for now. I hope my review has inspired you to play. *grin*
