No Split-Screen multiplayer option?

The last SBK game seemed to get a bit of a panning so hopefully this one's a lot better.

I have to say SBK 08 was a top quality game. Yes no split screen and bloody hard esp at the higher levels but probably the best bike game I have played since GP500 years ago. It totally pisses all over MotoGP as a sim game IMO. I played 2 different MotoGP's and whilst they looked great the AI was complete pony and the bike physics just wrong. Hopefully this will improve on 08. SBK got a slating in a few reviews but of the ones I read it seemed to me there were 2 reasons it got panned.

1. It was hard and therefore not accessable

2. The tracks didn't have funfairs and F-16's in the background like Moto-GP

I'd say give it a try before writing it off, there are plenty of good reviews of the game if you look at gamers reviews rather than non biking full time game reviewers. 

 My only grip is the non split screen, but not a problem I guess if your online.
