As the header says, really. You can read it here, and I believe there are some new screenshots as well.

How does the game feel though? I was a bit nonplussed about the lack of any depth to the combat system. The best "strategy" I could come up with was to run away from the enemies (I run about twice as fast as any I found could move), shoot at them, then run away again, then shoot at them, and repeat until they're dead. I didn't see any special skills or abilities that I could actively use in combat, my only fighting method was to click on enemies repeatedly to fire my weapon at them until they went down. I expect a game to have a bit more to combat than an auto-attack button, because it frankly gets boring really fast.

It comes across as surprisingly honest for a preview. I guess I'm used to the slurp-fests that IGN usually put up.
