Good story, phenomenal music, tight controls, hilarious sense of humor, ass-spanking challenges, delirious design, tons of secrets, and free DLC levels all for one low price. It really doesn't get much better than this...and that's what makes it so terrible. 
Like a siren's song, Super Meat Boy's fantastic gameplay and storytelling will lure you to crash on its rocky, jagged, razor blade-spewing, salt-encrusted, festering shores and you won't even feel bad about it afterwards. (Certainly not a game for everyone, though.)

     Dr Fetus strikes again Super Meat Boy pays homage to old-skool gaming in many ways, but unlike many tribute acts, it isn’t a one-trick-pony that tries to dig in with the hooks of nostalgia. The steady stream of gaming references gives this hardcore platform game bags of charm, yet it plays and feels like a modern and full-featured product. The titular hero – a cube of meat that tracks blood everywhere he treads – is in love with Bandage Girl. Unfortunately, the dastardly Dr Fetus hates Meat Boy...
