I'm playing it right now, just got a few levels to go, and I don't think it's that bad. It's not great, but it's not terrible either, it's alright.
I've played many worse games. I admit the dismemberment was annoying at first, but you have to learn how to dodge. I haven't gotten eaten by the little guys for most of the game, and I've only actually failed that real easy minigame when you're inside them once the entire playthrough. Controls seem fine to me.
I only paid 5 bucks for it, I got it with that Microsoft store sale, and I'm happy with it at that price.
Sure I'll never play it again, but I won't regret playing it.
