I was never quite sure what to expect with this one - but I do know it absolutely doesn't live up to the price tag. The quickest summary I can give is "Feels like Left 4 Dead set in Egypt". It's not solo-friendly; even the single player campaign is set up like matches with space for other players. There are a series of 9 missions which can be replayed to find collectables etc. Missions are a series of 'solve simple puzzles to find a key and fend off hordes of monsters'. Movement and gun-play feels a little clunky. On the plus side, the narrator is excellent and it's quite pretty. I picked it up on sale, but €50 for a L4D clone is hugely overpriced.
