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.

If you haven't heard or had a chance to get this game in any of it's various releases you need to stop reading this right now and find a way to grab it. This is the most frustrating type of game you could ask for and I mean that as the best of compliments. You'll find yourself blasting your little meat buddy (so to speak) into pieces over and over again as you attempt to bridge a gap or hop a buzz saw hundreds and hundreds of times to the most satisfying replay system I've ever seen. With amazingly tight controls and infinite replay-ability you'd think the guys behind this game would have called it quits. They didn't. This game has so much hidden content and throwbacks to old school gaming you'll be digging for hours to get a tiny blast of the past. On top of all that the cut scenes in this game are top notch funny. Go... go now... go now and buy this game.

This is a really challenging game, but it is also rewarding. This game is a tough as nails platformer and you die a hell of a lot. The thing that shines about this game, is that even though you die so often you get better each life. There is minimal waiting about in the game so it keeps you engaged. Its a great game and a great way to kill some time.

The platform game is a well-trodden path. What makes Super Meat Boy unique is the style, and its insane difficulty level. And both integrate seamlessly with one another. The levels are mostly short, requiring fast accurate movements. Which means you'll die, a lot, and it's all by design. It's fast pace lets you try over and over until you get it right without any breaking from the action. The controls are intuitive (provided you have a controller), so messing up is never the fault of the game itself. It's incredibly over the top, and that's what makes the game so endearing.

This is probably one of the most diffucult games ever made, it is fast and simple, you are meat boy and you will die a lot, levels will get bigger and diffucult and you'll have to deal with the saws in every single level, this game takes time to master, but after you do, the game becomes funnier than painful, it also has very nice soundtracks and unlockable characters from other games,buy it ,play it, the game will describe by itself.

I love this game. Almost everything is awesome about it. The level design is great and varying, the aesthetics are simple but good looking and also vary greatly between worlds, the sound effects are nice (especially when Super Meat Boy dies), completing a level and getting a good rating feels great, and even dying feels great. Painting the level in blood is awesome. There is also the option to play as other character than Super Meat Boy, but since they don't spread blood everywhere I don't really see the point. Get this game!
