About This Game

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.
  • Story mode, featuring over 300 levels spanning 5+ chapters
  • Play as a Head Crab! (Steam Exclusive)
  • 33 legitimate Achievements
  • Warp zones that will warp you into other games
  • Over 16 unlockable able and playable characters from popular indie titles such as, Minecraft, Bit.Trip, VVVVVV and Machinarium
  • Epic Boss fights
  • Full Level Editor and Level Portal (January 2011)
  • A story so moving you will cry yourself to sleep for the rest of your life

This is probably the best platform game ever made. The controls are phenomenal, even if the level was just an empty box you'd still enjoy moving around.

The humor is great, enjoyed all the cutscenes.

Finally there is so much content, it's insane. In fact I'd love less content. After you finish the game you unlock the nightmare? mode which leads to the true ending. Then there are levels with bandage girl. Unlockable characters. Hidden levels. It's nuts!

Great game, a classic.

*** If you are the kind of gamer that seeks extreme challenges and
strives to prove your skill, Super Meat Boy is the platformer for you ***

+ Controls are easy to learn, hard to master
+ Good pacing of difficulty and introduction of new obstacles
+ Unlimited lives and swift respawns keeps you right in the action
+ Super satisfying when you beat levels
+ Awesome soundtrack

- Initially, the controls feel very slippery, but once you get used to them you'll fly around the screen with ease
- Depending on your patience, tenacity, and temperament, you may need to put the controller down for a while if you get too frustrated ;)

It took me 16,860 deaths to 100% this game and earn all of its achievements. IT WAS WORTH IT!
I enjoyed myself the whole time (the whole time I was not raging that is...)

My absolute favorite game of all time!
Five years ago when I started to play Minecraft in Beta 1.6 I found a red skin called something like "Meat Boy". Because red is my favorite color and the skin looked pretty cool I chose it and after all that years I am still using it. Two years later in 2013 I found the demo of SMB on my Xbox 360 when I couldnt sleep because of...reasons and when I started to play it I couldnt stop, I played the whole demo like 40 times :D
I loved this game so much that I even bought a t-shirt which is now pretty much worth because you cant buy it anymore but I never bought the full version until last year. In school we use macbooks and SMB runs on mac so you all know what I was doing all the time last year :)
And now I even got SMB for the Xbox for free because of "Xbox Live Gold Games" :D

But now to the game, I just love the graphic-style and the mechanics like the squishy blood squirting everywhere!
I also really like to listen to the soundtrack and I got all tracks on my iPod, listened to every song atleast 200 times.
The gameplay itself is really great because it feels like a Super Mario but much faster and without all of the stupid enemies and powerups. Also a thing i like about the game are the characters which are crossovers with for example Commander Video and the Headcrab and all of the other Easter Eggs.

So I can recommend this game to everyone with fast fingers and a hang to retro-jump&runs :D

Friend: "Why'd you buy this game?"
Me: "Because I ♥♥♥♥ing hate myself."


10/10 would cry out of absolute frustration again.



(Ignore the low hours, I played this game on the Xbox 360 enough to make the veins in my head pop out like ♥♥♥♥ on a hooker... Not that I would know..)

Excuse me sir, but I see that you are reading reviews for a game named Super Meat Boy.

As a civil and gentlemanly critic, I feel that is my obligation to ask of you to please stop spending time frivolously by reading reviews, and GO PLAY SOME ♥♥♥♥ING MEAT BOY!

...what's that?

...write a non-joke review?

...sigh...fine.

Okay, let's see here...this game is freaking awesome. It has some of the best music I've ever heard from a game, has some of the best, yet toughest platforming I've ever witnessed, and has sadistic and crude humor that had me laughing to death.

Play this game.

Now.

Okay.

Despite what quite a few people have said, this game wasn't as hard as I thought. Still hard, but reasonably so. Controls are fluid and going fast feels fantastic. Makes for a great speedrunning game as well. Those proficent at platformers will feel right at home,
