I'm saying yes too. While it's somewhat subjective whether Unity is the best, it's certainly one of the best. Its particular strengths in this area are:
It's particularly well suited to individuals or small teams, and you can deploy commercial products with the free version (until your company passes a certain relatively high turnover threshold).
If you download the free version to test it out, here's a great way to try out just how fast you can get a prototype up and running. You can get a first person WSAD + mouse controlled view around a scene in minutes.
1) Create a new project, and be sure to include the "standard assets" package
Make a small "placeholder" scene in Unity using a large plane for the ground, and place boxes around for buildings/walls.
Make a test scene in a 3d app, consisting of a floor plane and simple obstacles / buildings / walls. If you choose this option, you need to:
3) You should now have your scene visible in the "Scene View". (If not, select your scene's root node in the hierarchy, then move the mouse over the scene view and hit "F").
4) We're going to add Unity's ready-made first-person controller, which has a built-in camera, so - Delete the current "Main Camera" object from your hierarchy pane.
5) In your "Project" pane, look in Standard Assets -> Prefabs. Drag the "First Person Controller" prefab from there into your scene.
6) Move the First Person Controller in your scene to the desired starting position.
7) Hit play, explore your new scene using mouse to look, use WSAD or Arrow keys to move and strafe, and hit space to jump!
8) when you're ready to add weapons, AI, multiplayer or other effects, just search this site!

Yes, for making FPS's, Unity is the unparalleled greatest tool of all time. Here is an incredible tutorial to get you started. Many of the fine users here are also at your service if you should need more help making the next Halo.

var speed = 3.0;
var speed1= 100.0;
private var shoot = false;
var runing = false;
function Update ()
FPSWalker.speed = 12.0;
runing = true;
FPSWalker.speed = 6.0;
runing = false;
FPSWalker.speed = 3.0;}
FPSWalker.speed = 6.0;
FPSWalker.speed = 6.0;
gun = Instantiate(gunPrefab, transform.position, Quaternion.identity);
FPSWalker.speed = 3.0;
and note, remove all sorts of animations/sounds if you do not have them.
I reformatted your code, but there are two areas I wasn't sure about - you have some commented-out code, not sure if that was intended (if so, you should remove it. If not, it has some brackets that don't match up). Second, there are several misspellings (runing, colision), which don't affect the program - as long as you spell them the same every time in the rest of the code.
Also - although I don't want to discourage people giving code, but - he wasn't really asking for any scripts...

I have used Unity and I absolitely love it for its simplicity. BUT i will have to disagree with almost every answer here because the few multiplayer FPS's I have played that have been made with unity are so laggy that they are no fun to play.
Ofcourse you can argue that this can be fixed with decent planning and hard core programming skills, but I think you'd be better off just going with UDK that is more specifically tailored for your particular request (multiplayer fps).
