I'm hoping this plays more like an action game than a survival shooter that's just been split into stages.

It shouldn't be, GameLab made this game, not Chillingo.

It's described as an open world RPG, with missions fighting waves of enemies, solving puzzles, boss fights etc. The description also mentions that there are weapons, upgrades and cash to find.

I think one of the things that made people question the gameplay was seeing "Wave 3/4", "Wave 2/3" and so forth in the screenshots, which I suppose might give the impression that the game is a series of small arena-based fights.

The waves of enemies might be a key part of the game, but it sounds as though it's not just a series of small arena-based fights. From the description it sounds like there's a ship to explore with missions/quests that you can choose like in any other RPG or open world game. And the missions vary from waves of enemies, puzzles and boss fights. And when you're not doing a mission then you can roam around the ship to look for cash, weapons and upgrades.
I could be wrong, but I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Oh, I know what the synopsis says, I was just commenting on the only reason I could see for people to have the impression that it might be a stage-based arena shooter. I guess the gameplay video was also reminiscent of twin-stick shooters already available on the platform, but realistically there are only so many ways you can present a top-down action game. ^_^

This is very different from etolis. It is more like like dead space with isometric graphics, some arena screens very little rpg elements and linear story.
