IME it offer loads of choice and strategic options emphasised by a lack of excessive randomness. Choices might not seem deep on a surface reading but in terms of thinking ahead, comparing options and deciding what is your best method for achieving your short and long term goals, etc., it's very good. Particularly when you take into consideration some of the mechanics introduced in the expansions.
Arkham Horror isn't that complicated - it's just got lots of pieces. Once you get into the flow, it's quite easy to play.
The problem is that, for some people, there isn't a lot of gameplay. It's about the experience; discussion and danger, rather than deep decisions. So for a group of drunks, if you can get over the fiddly, it might be right.
