God damn it giant bomb. I told you I wouldn't like this game and I bought it anyway! Your advice is to compelling and at less than 4 dollars, I gave in....
 
oh well.

Yeah, that's why I don't want to buy the game either... I have the feeling that I will play it for an hour and never touch it ever again...

@DriveupLife:  Buyer beware?  I bought it as well, but mostly in an effort to at least support the developer somehow.  I have it on 360 and wasnt planning on ponying up for the PC version as well until today.

The first level is the best level.

On a more serious note, this game is a grindfest seeing how most levels are fairly difficult or challenging.

I went to play the demo, pressed start and it bought it.  I was fucking pissed.  It's alright but I don't really have fun playing it.

You can't even die in the first two levels, why would you quit after playing so little?

If you watched the Quick Look then you knew good and well what you were getting into. 
And quitting after two levels? That's just embarrassing, dawg.

I find it a lot easier with a gamepad than a keyboard. I would hate to play it on a PC too.

You should have played the original. You know the one on newgrounds because they are practically the same fucking game.

I was considering buying it but even at that price, I'll pass because it's just not my kind of game

The normal levels are OK.  IWBTG warp zone defeated me though: I was on the last stage with the teeth flying horizontally, but I just gave up trying.

I am fully prepared to hate this game. But it's the kind of thing that I can stick with. dl is about to finish, I'll report my thoughts in half an hour or so.

I like these types of games and only played a few hours of Super Meat Boy before not touching it again. I have to be in a certain mood to play it, because aside from Trials HD, it's the most frustrating game I've played in 6 or 7 years. 
 
I'll go back to it one day, though.

Did you really play it? You practically cant die on like the first few levels I don't see what would make you quit that early... and dude your totally missing out. Its hard but in quick bursts so ultimately other than a few really hard levels I never found it too frustrating.

Yes, because you clearly see everything a game has to offer after two levels. Especially if said levels are less than a minute long.

@FlyingRat:  Not even, less than 15 seconds long.

Yeah the game doesn't do the jumping for you, there's no autoaim, and you can't hide behind boxes. People who told you that were lying.

I can't tell if Super Meat Boy is the best game of all time or if I just have the Stockholm Syndrome real bad.

I understand it not being your type of game, but uninstalling after just two levels is stupid. At least get to a level that you can die in so you can kind of see the actual game.

The game is defiantly not for everyone. There is a demo available and free flash version on Newgrounds.

Played it, beat it, got 80 bandages and up to the world 5 dark world.  Had a blast all the way there, but am putting it down now in favor of some other stuff.  I'll probably go back and get those last bandages some day.

christ, someone says they don't like a game by two levels (while short, it will certainly tell you how it controls) and you feel the need to shit on him?

I'm still on the final level of the final stage. Have been for months. Can't be fucked to finish it.
 
It's a good game, but when ridiculous difficulty is a selling point, it's not the game for me.

@mracoon: It's possible, you can jump off the borders of the level and kill yourself that way. 
Looking for the last bandage made me check out every nook and cranny

I'll buy it when (if) it comes to Wii. I don't have an Xbox and can't imagine playing this thing on a keyboard. I really want them to put out that Wii version though. Game looks amazing.

I will probably feel the same way, so I won't buy it. I don't have enough patience for that game.

Everyone in the thread is kind of doing that, so yeah. You see a thread full of people shitting on this dude and single me out? When are you going to move past that time I ran your cat's tail over with my scooter dude. Let the wound heal already.

Seriously. You can beat the first two levels in under 5 seconds. :/

I said I would be 30 minutes and it's been an hour, I'm addicted. I hate this game, but it's so satisfying. It frustrates me to the core, but I must get through the next level. It's dangerous.

You mean two worlds, I hope. You can beat the first 2 levels in about 12 seconds combined. They are absolutely no indictation of the awesomeness of the game whatsoever. They are tutorials at the absolutely most basic level.

Hey, i hate extreme difficulty and have been playing my games on Easy for the last few months just because i dont enjoy the pressure anymore 
 
 however, i think SMB looks good, sounds good, controls good, and FEELS good once you beat a level.. so though it made me shout curse words at the top of my lungs, i got to the 4th level in the second world and i plan to keep going and trying.

I thought the same thing, but I bought on the steam sale anyway. Then someone in another forum linked to a program for your computer that lets you use your ps3 controller. Needless to say, I have spent the last hour and a half trying to stop playing this game.
