    Not for the feint of heart.

    This past year saw a glorious return of platformers both 2D and 3D. Mario made a great sequel to an already great game. Sonic had a surprising comeback (Sonic Colors), DK and Kirby both returned to their 2D roots and w... Read Full Review

    Super Meat Boy PC

    Unlike a lot of my friends, this game did not immediately impress me. It's quite fun for a few hours, dying over and over, but it gets repetitive and I lost interest pretty quickly. Gameplay - 6, nothing special in my o... Read Full Review

    Bug Can Kill Meat Boy

    Flappy Bird proved popular, many people like you who abuse the dead attractiveness of the game, this is that these people should not be missed for a good game. Simple game mechanics are still jumping jump, the difficult... Read Full Review

    Super tough platforming that will leave you cursing but smiling the whole time.

    Meat Boy is a boy w/o skin. He looks about like a cube of stew meat with arms and legs. His girlfriend, Bandage Girl is kidnapped by Dr. Fetus--who is actually a fetus, in a jar... w/ a monacle--and Meat Boy much track h... Read Full Review

    A Red Square Chubber's Pursuit of an Occasional Bandage and a Babe

    What frustrates me, along with so many other things that frustrate me, is writing about something that I actually like. There's just no way for me to capture the happiness that something brings me on paper, maybe I just... Read Full Review

    Tough but fun

    What can I say. This game is totally worth the 14 euros. Every cent. Story is simple. Dr. Fetus kidnaps Bandage Girl and Meat Boy tries to save her. You play as Meat boy and this game is 2d platformer. First 2 levels are... Read Full Review

    Real hardcore gaming. Amazing design, soundtrack and playability. You choose how far you go with it. Addictive as hell.

    You want a mild difficulty game? You have it. Play some light levels. You want pure hardcore? You got it. Try to beat each level of the regular game, try to catch every single bandage, and try to unlock the bonus levels ... Read Full Review

    Super Meat Boy is an incredibly difficult platformer - but one that is immensely satisfying to conquer.

    Super Meat Boy may seem like just a simple platformer. You run, jump, maybe wall bounce a few times, collecting powerups and reaching the end of over 200 levels. It doesn't look particularly special or even that difficul... Read Full Review

    Dead Boy

    My only real problem with the platform action genere currently is really that most haven't been very chalanging to me and some have felt almost the same, that is until this game. I've played plenty of hard action platfor... Read Full Review

    Downloadable crack for the seasoned gamer.

    This game is often mentioned in the same sentence as Demon's Souls, an equally fresh and original game, so it's worth it to open this review with a comparison of the two. When you enter Demon's Souls, you are a lone knig... Read Full Review
