Above is the description found on a webpage selling the PC edition of this
game. Notice how it mentions "next gen consoles". Well, this should pretty
much indicate that it's a console-to-PC port. This is a spectacularly bad port
though. Infact we found it to be pretty much unplayable without an XBOX360 for
Windows controller, which begs the question, why bother porting it at all ?
It's pretty buggy too.
