Overall Metal Slug 5 is fun, but is lacking some of the variety, depth and attention to detail of the best Metal Slugs. I recommend getting either the excellent Metal Slug 3 or the original Metal Slug first.
If you're not expecting anything more than what you got from Metal Gear 1 - 4 then Metal Slug 5 will probably satisfy you for the 30 minutes it will take you to beat it. But the series is starting to run out of steam and it's going to take something bigger than a slide move or a new weapon to kick it back into shape. This series needs a makeover fast, or maybe just a rest from active duty.
