Sorry, Vgfian. The Xbox 360 edition is quite behind the PC version.

Split screen on PC would be nice, but I can live without it considering how many comps we've got.

^^Now that the update is out it's actually pretty close now (From what I can tell, not completely though. :/ ).

Yeah, I like SS, but I dislike how you are required to use HD mode for it to work.

It actually plays really fluidly, the controls are pretty easy to pick up. I can't give you a comparison though.
