"This sublime platformer provides tons of challenge, precise controls, and incredible level design that will keep you glued to the screen." - GameSpot.com
"Super Meat Boy is one of the best modern platformers. It's infuriating, exasperating, and arduous, but it's also delightful, thrilling, and hilarious." - IGN.com
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.

Challenging and Aggravating, but good concept.LunarMemories | Aug. 11, 2014 | See all LunarMemories's reviews »
This game is Challenging... The best description I can give it is that it is Aggravating, yet Addictive. Shares the same sort of feel that a "Trials" game has, you feel aggravated while playing, then if you can somehow complete the level you will feel accomplished. After that you will look at the clock and see that those 6 hours went by in a flash...
Difficult, but rewardingtestygamer | Aug. 9, 2014 | See all testygamer's reviews »
This game can be a very very frustrating experience but when you manage to beat the level you had thought was pretty much impossible, the feeling is exhilarating. The thing is if you play the first world you may be left with the impression that the game really isn't that difficult, but trust me it is. Especially when you get to certain levels(my kryptonite was the hell level...but after many hours I got through it). This game is for those who would like a challenge. It is not for those who want a nice relaxing game. However just because of its difficulty it does not mean that it is to be avoided. No quite the opposite. If you think you are up for the challenge I definitely recommend this game to you. Good Luck you will need it!
Want some meat?hateah | July 29, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »
Ah, I remember when i played that game my fingers started hurting from the non-stop pushing keys. It has a lot of maps, each map has 12 levels, and a boss which you have to kill or run from, to unlock other levels and save your girlfriend. There are some hard levels which can make you rage and no matter how hard you try still not to succeed to pass the level. It's a basically a meat boy which can stick to walls, jump very long ranges, pass by edge'd objects which can kill you and a lot of more stuff. There are also leaderboards where you can race with the other players from the community by who finished the level for less time. It's my first game which i played from the indie genre. The art style which have been used fits the game very good, every level is very different from the previous one which makes the game even more fun to play and not be able to get boring to you.
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.
