    If you don't lose your head over the difficulty, Super Meat Boy is an awesome homage to retro 2D platformers.

    An extremely difficult and highly addictive 2D Platformer

    Rated on March 08, 2012 by N0GRAV1TY

    Super Meat Boy is a 1200 Microsoft point XBLA game that is well worth the price. The game is a 2D Platformer that can seem impossibly difficult at certain points of the game but perseverance and the s...

    Enjoyable game but highly overrated

    Rated on May 15, 2012 by Gustofwind

    I have always been a fan of difficult games, forever finding myself frustrated at the video games gradually becoming more casual in nature. However although this game appealed to the side of me that e...

    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...

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

    Rated on July 26, 2012 by BigStik

    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 o...

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

    Rated on August 27, 2012 by ciriliox

    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 unlo...

    Super Meat Boy will kick your ass, and you will enjoy it if you can handle it.

    Rated on October 21, 2010 by Dan_Lionheart

    Wow, this game is freaking awesome. It's so charming and hilarious. If you don't laugh watching one of these cutscenes, you have no soul. Super Meat Boy is unpredictable, it's challenging, but best of...

    Those who don't like it, probably couldn't handle it.

    Rated on October 22, 2010 by wonderboy505200

    Regarding the title - I'm no expert, my death toll is at about 600 right now. So I had no idea about this game until I saw the review for it on GameSpot. I was not expecting too much from it and i...

    All I need to say is....THIS GAME IS FREAKIN' HARD!

    Rated on October 24, 2010 by LegatoSkyheart

    I've been following this game for a long time. I don't remember for how long, but long enough to say, I knew that this game was going to be one of the best downloadable titles of the Year. After...
