Super Meat Boy: First Impressions

I'm nearly speechless. It's as if Team Meat took one of my all-time favorite platformers, N (an underappreciated gem), gave it a makeover, and infused it with a wicked sense of humor. I'm not even 100% done with Super Meat Boy's incredible World 1, and I already feel like I've gotten my $10 worth!

My thoughts exactly. For 800 (or even 1200) points, I don't think anyone could regret buying this gem.

Yep, it's fucking amazing!

I really don't understand what makes this game so addictive. I can't stop, and I don't care. I've never wanted to watch a replay in a game so much after I complete something. Its so satisfying.
 
This became my official favorite game once I discovered I can dash with X instead of RT.. no more hand cramps!

It's not my type of game sadly.

I feel its a great game if its your cup of tea, I like some hard platforming but what won me over is the retro nods in the game as with having other indie character cameos.

My wife summed it up pretty good "You need to turn this game off, my blood preassure is high just watching you".  
 
I love it though!

If you start to feel feverish with pains on your left side and chest, don't worry. That's just Meat Boy showing his immense love for you!

@cide: The replay feature is indeed gratifying!
 
@SammydesinasNL: Sad but true: SMB really isn't for everyone!
 
@phantomzxro: I love the alternate characters so much! 
 
@Metalideth: I'll probably be coining new curse words before long!
 
@LunarAura: Aww... and we all love him right back!

I'm debating getting this, but since I suck at platformers, I may be better served just waiting for Undead Nightmare.  Did enjoy the demo, though. The controls were very impressive.

@MithrilMojo: SMB probably isn't the game for you if you suck at platformers, even though the controls are indeed fantastic!

What a fucking weird thing to say.

@drag: Too true! And beating a friend's A+ level time produces a particularly good feeling!
 
@Raymayne: Haha. Also true!
