So far its really really damn fun. Its more like the downhill stages in Tony Hawk, only 2d of course, and the trick system is a lot like SSX in that you load it up and release to jump etc. It is fast, intuitive, and I feel safe saying worth every penny.
As for the Super Meat Boy thing, sure in that it controls astoundingly well and the later stages get really damn hard. But really I find it more similar to Dustforce because its about perfect runs through a level for top scores and has a similar in the zone flowing through a stage feel to it.
The only bummer is that it suddenly crashes from time to time. It seemed to happen the most during the tutorial stage and the first level or so. I then played for like 3 hours last night and it stopped crashing for some reason.
