It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Just got this game in the humble bundle and I know next to nothing about it. I will of course look up some lets plays but I would appreciate it if someone who has played the game could give me a brief summary of the core concept of the game and whether its any good.

From what I've played of it (a few hours without finishing it), it's about fighting enemies as efficiently as possible. Killing lots of things doesn't get you anything, but you waste health or resources in the process. When you have to fight something you try to do so as efficiently as possible by of course not missing if you shoot, but also using the knife as much as possible - which is difficult to do without getting hurt - or luring enemies to their deaths in other ways to conserve bullets. Otherwise you avoid fighting at all. This goes similarly for the other resources you are given - bombs, upgrade parts etc. You're never given as much as you would like. I think it's a good game. The learning curve isn't too high if you pay attention but the challenge is there right from the beginning and really ramps up later on. On the other hand maybe you've discovered all this already anyway through lets plays if you've watched those yet. Well, have fun anyway.
