Played this on the 3DS recently. It's pretty much as you say, not as compelling since you'r mostly staring at the map on the bottom screen most of the time to get around since neat as the environments look they really don't help give any direction.
Still though, had a lot of fun with it. I always find it kinda interesting when a studio does massive shifts in tone between projects.
Wish I knew more about Aztec lore to get more insight into the plot. My guess is:
That the being who gives you your weapon is more or less the grim reaper. Whole point of the journey is for the protagonist to overcome their regrets and worries and accept her death and move on to whatever afterlife.
