But it's an improvement on the pocket edition. Things that have been in console edition for ages like stained glass have been added.
I'm currently playing the beta for the Windows 10 edition with a controller. I'm assuming it will be a similar experience to playing on the xbox one.
As soon as I created a world I noticed differences to the console edition. Mobs are more numerous, biomes are bigger, even the new easy crafting interface is better once you get the hang of it.
There are things I don't like, like not having coordinates on maps but overall it's just seems better. Servers are not out yet for the beta unless you enter IP addresses for them manually, so I don't know what mini games will be like, but from what I've seen on youtube they do look a lot better than the ones you get on console.
