I would probably pick it up. Just remember even though it looks like a FPS doesn't mean that it is one. Think of it as a shooter (Gradius etc.), and if you like those then this one will be just fine.

And be ready for Resident Evil Like Controls.

Everything in this game screams for Devil May Cry style action controls, and I think the game would've been better received by going that way. However, they chose to make it a "shooter" in the vein of old school side scrolling shooters, and when you go in with that expectation, you tend to enjoy the game more.

Really, the main motivation to play the game is to amass points to unlock all the suits and thus and power each one up to max and thus unlock all the powerful attacks, but for a lot of people that's not enough motivation. There's other things like getting high scores, keeping high combo kills up, not getting hit and perfect rooms etc. but I felt it was all hurt by the controls.

As that is, it's a decent game for that price.
