I paid $20 for the game and wanted to see it through to the end. I loved the setting/atmosphere but did find the menus confusing. Once I unlocked more I started playing around with various setups and saw how much flexibility there is.
Since the game went up for free I've seen a bunch of topics about it not living up to the hype, people not getting what's great, etc. When you get the game for free you're less invested and Transistor is a game that needs to be played till the end to really appreciate everything the game has to offer.
