Worth it on 360?

Looks like a fun game, despite the QL (I recognize that Jeff isn't the best guide). However, is it worth getting on the 360? This really seems like a PC kind of game.

I haven't played it but I don't see why it wouldn't be good on 360. If you can get a good group of friends to play it'll probably be awesome.

Fun co-op game that has its faults, but still enjoyable so I say go for it. If you want to ask me anything about the game feel free.

@falserelic:

I definitely think it looks like a lot of fun, and have watched enough of it in action to get a good sense for it (I think). I was asking more about performance on the 360 - does it play smoothly, and is there a community for it?

I feel like most of what I've seen has been PC-first for it, so don't want to pick it up and discover that the 360 has a janky framerate or no one is playing.

I own the ps3 version, but from my experience it runs pretty smooth. Theirs alot of people playing the game, but the matchmaking system acts kinda funny.

I'd say chatting (granted people use THEIR MICS!!!!) is easier on a console. A lot of people don't have mics that work for PCs and consoles usually bundle them in. That being said, I'd say if you knew more people with a PC, get that version. Not only is it cheaper, but it looks way better and will probably have a bigger community in the long run. I got the 360 version and love it, but wish I had a dedicated group of 4 to go through and do stuff.

I'm playing on 360 with a few buddies, but even if you're alone you can set it to allow randoms to join mid-game. Seems like there's plenty of people playing now that it's on the XBL marketplace.

Framerate is fine, textures are muddier than the PC version, but overall a smooth performance.
