Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux.
Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic NES titles like Mega Man 2, Ghost and Goblins and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Japanese one) and stream lines them down to the essential no BS straight forward twitch reflex platforming.
Ramping up in difficulty from hard to soul crushing SMB will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren't enough SMB also throws in epic boss fights, a level editor and tons of unlock able secrets, warp zones and hidden characters.

Ridiculously hard, yet so much funThreshNautBlitz | July 16, 2014 | See all ThreshNautBlitz's reviews »
Super Meat Boy will make you grit your teeth, throw down your gamepad, and punch the screen repeatedly before you calm down and try again. It may be one of the hardest games in the genre, but it's also extremely fair. Perhaps that is why it is so satisfying try after try after try when you finally beat the level.

This game is a rage-inducing game, which I usually turn away from, but every other aspect just makes it so much fun.
Not only are the visuals unique and fit perfectly, the controls are very tight and feel fitting. The game runs very well, which isn't a surprise, but is worth mentioning. The characters aren't very deep, but this game doesn't focus on story, and what it does focus on it great.
All in all, great game.

Looks a million times easier than it is to play. This is good in a game, and I enjoyed the challenge. Because the more you play, the better you get, which is rewarding. But I sometimes did feel that the gradient went up far too quickly in terms of difficulty. I prefer games that build up the difficulty a bit more slowly. It's a lot of fun (and frustration) for the low price. Characters are cute and memorable.
Definitely one of the most fun Indie Titles I've playedreginleifx | July 4, 2014 | See all reginleifx's reviews »
This game is great. Sure, it does not have great visuals, and the plot is not great, it just feels like an old platformer. However, the gameplay is fluid and challenging, there are lots of traps you have to avoid making contact with, and it's harder than it sounds. Meat Boy's movements can feel a little bit slippery (This depends from player to player, I believe), and, in case you don't like playing as him, you can unlock some other characters by visiting secret levels, or getting bandages, which are really hard to collect, but add a lot of gameplay time if you're a completionist, and most of them are really fun to play, at least in my opinion. Now, the soundtrack is wonderful, it fits the game well, and almost every single song in it is catchy. Overall, this game is great, and it's a tough challenge for those who think most new games are too easy for them.
Great game, can be quite stressfulMarianoAlipi | July 2, 2014 | See all MarianoAlipi's reviews »
Super Meat Boy is a very well done game, with good "physics" and story. Gameplay is one of the best parts of this game, as there are many, many levels to beat with obstacles. It's a great game, very entertaining, but if you don't have much patience, I wouldn't recommend it for you; sometimes, you just can't complete a level and that can be very annoying. However, I still DO recommend you to try it out!
