What Gamespot Users have to say about Super Meat Boy

  • User Rating 9

    Meat boy is a game that does have meat, but is it also spicy?

    Rated on December 12, 2010 by Macronaut

    First of all I'd like to say that I'm glad that I played this game and found out that it is a VERY indie game ( small developer and such ), and also it's nice to know that it came from a idea of a fl...

    Super Meat Boy is a serious contender for becoming the best 2D platformer the PC has to offer.

    Positive - Outstanding, brilliant 2D platforming with fantastic controls - Super varied level design allowing more than a single possibility to beat a stage - Perfect use of trial and error, withou...

    Masochistic fun.

    Rated on December 24, 2010 by Junior_AIN

    This generation of games has been nice for indie game developers, the scene is becoming increasingly more democratic with digital distribution, that's a good thing for gamers since there are many tale...

    You will die, and you will die lots...<br /> But you will keep playing, and you won't know why.

    Rated on December 25, 2010 by X382GAJ

    The elderly and those with slow reflexes should leave this game well alone as ninja fingers and the ability to play the same level millions of times over are required. The clairvoyance required for so...

    Die die die and die more...

    Rated on December 30, 2010 by zaferdepe

    First of all the game is good but I think it is a bit overrated. Is it really funny to die at least 10 times to pass a level :S And if you pass one of the levels believe me this is not totally because...

    A masochistic game like this requires flawless controls....

    Rated on December 26, 2010 by GeneralShowzer

    And the controls for Super Meat Boy for the PC simply do not have the precision required to play this kind of a game. It's really that simple. If you don't have a 360 controller lying around i would't...

    Too hard to be fun

    Rated on December 28, 2010 by nutcrackr

    Meat Boy is a small cube character who has the charming ability to slide down and jump off vertical walls. Of course this talent is used frequently to complete a series of challenging levels in a 2D e...

    The best platform games I've ever played but be ready to die lots and lots of times...

    Rated on February 17, 2011 by Maslor

    Super Meat Boy is a great platform game. I really enjoyed the game because it is funny, it has secret zones and characters that you are going to want to find and unlock, it has hilarious cutscenes (in...

    The Nintendo is dead. Get over it.

    Rated on December 28, 2010 by DreckSkim

    Honestly, you'll get more enjoyment out of Solitaire than you will out of playing this retro-jumper. Sure, it's great that the controls are responsive and that the level design is clever to the point ...

    Excruciating, intimidating, yet immensely satisfying.

    Rated on December 29, 2010 by mo0ksi

    We've all gone through hardships with many games, regardless of how the general difficulty of said game may be. There's always that occasion where it can be as if the game and its developers turn on y...
