Don't know what the Zero Punctuation review says of it, but I didn't come to that conclusion. Quite the contrary, I thought it felt like an incomplete idea for a game. It had a couple of good ideas for boss fights spread extremely thin over sixteen of them, a "story" that felt more like an outline since absolutely nothing was explained, and... well, basically nothing else, really. I played it because I kept hearing from its fans online that it was amazing, but I found it totally lacking. Probably the most disappointing game I've played when compared to what I heard about it beforehand, actually.
