The gameplay is simple and enoyable once you get the hang of it. Before that point it can be brutally punishing and make you wonder why you just died. It gets easier the further you progress, you don't need to collect everything to make the final fights trivial. I focused on the bow first and then two-handed as well.
The summons are fun to work with once you can have multiple at the same time. A varied bunch, though you'll settle on a few favorites and virtually always include the crone.
The graphics are dated and sometimes screwed up, but overall quite acceptable. The only real downside is the limited view distance. You're often shooting at enemies that you can't see (which is quite an effective tactic).
The humor is mostly derisive and jaded, don't expect anything upbeat. It's delivered with excellent voices, unfortunately it gets repetitive. You might get tired of the narrator being tired of the Bard and the Bard being tired of everything.
Don't worry about sexual content, there's virtually none.
Whether you should be snarky or cheeky is often just a guess, and sometimes the Bard's behavior was the opposite of what I expected.
In my case the cutscenes sometimes paused for a few seconds but most of the time resumed by themselves. Sometimes I had to escape for it to progress, though that skips the rest of the dialog. There's nothing important to miss though. Twice I had to force quit because it refused to continue. To me it was but a slight annoyance.
Controller support is a big plus! The game plays perfectly with it.
It's a nice touch to include the old games as well, though I didn't bother to play them.
(The rat scam showed at the start can be repeated in various other places, for different rewards.)
