I seen some reviews aa while back and they were a bit average. Might wait until the next price-drop.
I played and beat it on the XBox 360. I enjoyed it for being different, and it had a few pretty good ideas, but the controls were a tad clunky for my liking.

To me, it doesn't mind: I've played and enjoyed games that scored so low you normally had to ignore them for preserving your mental health :-P

I played and beat it on the XBox 360. I enjoyed it for being different, and it had a few pretty good ideas, but the controls were a tad clunky for my liking. They wind up being adequate, I just prefer a bit more precision. The 2D platformer Outland comes to mind as a platformer with very similar type game mechanics but more precision overall. Still, was a good game despite the controls not being the tightest. Took about 4-5 hours to play through it.

I really enjoy Outland, but I got stuck on the second boss and kind of lost interest.
It's classical 2D platforming, Prince of Persia and Flashback alike. It's the perfect way to "platform" in 2D, for me :-P

As I said this game is good, it was good enough for me to see it through and beat it, but the controls were a tad imprecise. There are "triggers" involved that mean the difference from making a long jump to not making it, and it just seemed like at times those triggers did not kick in when they should. So led to a bit of frustration. Still, a game worth checking out, especially if you do like 2D platformers.
