The perfect balance between something simple yet still having depth that keeps you coming back without growing tired. 
You can be hardcore or you can be a casual gamer and enjoy this game easy. This is living proof that 2D games are far from dead.

This game is fucking great!

Posted by immortalmishima69

This game embodies every bit of the "OK one more time" addiction, with some completionist flavor added to it. I can't stop playing it no matter how frustrated I get. Certainly worth every penny to the point that I feel like the price sold it short.

I got this game after reading this review and I really like it (even though sometimes I also hate it).

He doesn't hate it because it's a bad game. He hates it because it exposes the flaws in him. One of the big things about Super Meat Boy is that when you die in the game, it isn't ever the game's fault; it's your own fault for being bad at it.

I really really really really really wish this would come to psn. It's the kind of game that I love, even if I'm absolutely terrible at it.

Meat boy is a pure platform game with lots of charm. While the start is good to get used to the controls it quickly ramps up to something that can challenge you for days. I loved the challenge to get A+ on all the levels and i loved the experience. I would recommend this to my friends and you. Get out there and try then buy this wonderful game.

Picked it up after watching the Quick Look. Absolutely love the controls and music, totally worth $15 and an absolute STEAL at $10. If you played games on an 8 or 16-bit console at any point in your life and enjoyed it (or simply relish a brutal yet rewarding challenge) you need this game. 
 
Some levels will destroy you with their difficulty but when you finally nail it down and pull off a successful run, watching all of the previous Meat Boy clones splattering to their doom, you will feel like a GOD DAMN NINJA!

This game is killing my thumbs!

Posted by xavfin

Got this yesterday. EXCELLENT FUN!
 
The difficulty level is high but not unfair. As it always should be, more developers should take notice.

Good review.  My masochistic side smiles as I curse the slippery meat boys failed attempts, while my inner child slowly dies of frustration and heartbreak.

What really pleases me is the temporary 10 dollar price. that was nice. And I am at home with the art style and humor. But I can't.....

well there's Flower for PS3, where your objective is to fly by with the wind collecting flower petals in a soothingly beautiful environment

I love this game! Occasionally I have to laugh at the absurdly hard level design.  I feel so awesome when everything comes together with ninja moves ending another enduring level.  I'm looking forward to busting through more levels later.

So many games! So little time ! (or money)

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

I started a goal to A+ and get every bandage on stage one and after an hour and a half I was afraid I was slowly starting to lose my mind.

Posted by EvilJester1214

i have bought this game
i may hate myself for it later
but damnit i'm enjoying every second of it

Posted by Taxi

After watching the quicklook and trying the demo I've decided to fork out for the game. As mentioned on the bombcast this really seems like the kind of game that builds CHARACTER. The old type of character, the one that you could send to war or safely let inherit your mansion or marry your daughter.

Another day1 perch.  Damn you end of the year video game releases!!!

Wow glad to know im not the only person who does this, i did the same thing with NXE last year so i could use netflix. Not sure when XBLA things officially go live though i gave up at 2:50am
Posted by Crono

Glad to see N+ mentioned in the review since the 2 games are very similar in many ways.  First thing after getting home from classes today was to buy Super Meat Boy.  I cleared the first world with all A+ and have begun to work on finding bandages/warps I have missed and then on to the dark world.  The game's addictiveness works a lot like a James Patterson novel - short levels/chapters the whole way through string you along.  The unlockable characters are also a really nice touch for mixing up the gameplay.  Very fun game and highly recommended.

Had no idea what this game was.
Now I do.
Now I want it.

Yeah, this game looks awesome. The flash version is fun too and the music is candy to my ears.

Posted by BBQBram

Just picked it up, it's kicking my ass but I'm loving it.

Posted by Undeadpool

I'm really debating whether or not to buy this...the Quick Look was both incredibly encouraging and INCREDIBLY discouraging.

Well sir have you heard of Kirbys epic yarn?
Posted by Legend

This game is fucking awesome! I just got 100% in the first world including finishing the secret level that you tried to beat in the Quick Look. I was not prepared for the craziness that awaited me at the end of that level but I managed to beat it after countless tries.

Posted by A_Dog

Bandages are total cunts. 

Posted by None

Nice review, loving this game!

Posted by Geralt

This or Kirby's Epic Yarn...what should I do?!?

Posted by reflekshun

Great review Brad! Nicely written :)

Posted by MjHealy

The great question still is... Costume Quest or this?

Posted by MrPilkington

I HAVE GOT TO PLAY THIS GAME!!!
Posted by Sn1PeR
@mnzy: Yeah the said in the podcast to play the demo first for sure, as this is not for everyone.
Posted by DualFayte

awesome

Posted by Satum

 
Looks like my life is about get sucked from me by another Divinely infuriating game!

Posted by sleepykyle

DId anyone figure out what happened to Brad around 4 mins through the quick look...it was like the screen was printing everything backwards and negative...or something
 
this game is bonkers

Posted by JackSukeru

Turns out it will come out for Wiiware as well, SOLD.

Posted by JellyFish_Gsus

I just bought this game and cant wait to rip my own hair out.

Posted by foggel

I'm not paying for this electronic torturing device

Posted by Captain_Insano

fuck you Brad.
 
I bought this game on your recommendation and it is brutal! But enjoying it nonetheless

Edited by Stealthmaster86

After playing and completing the DEMO I mean what I say that it was awesome and HARD. In the demo you play 14 levels through different stages including 2 dark worlds. By the time I beaten the DEMO I died around 220 times. You know when a game is hard when it tracks your deaths. 
 
EDIT:  
 
After playing the Demo again the way to get the Dark world, As Brad pointed out in the Quick Look, is if you beat the level in a specific time frame.  I wish I had the money to get this.

Posted by drew327

Can't wait to see the speed runs of the harder levels

Posted by Eaxis

I haven't been this exited for a game in a long long time! This is gonna be fun, challenging and rewarding!:D

Posted by s0ck

Cannot wait to hate myself :)

As someone who likes pain, this is relevant to my interests.
