Juliano, you don't play to much games of the 16bits generation? , maybe you are not born in that time. :) I play games like sonic, ristar, gunstar heroes, super mario. And i say to you, better graphics doesn't mean better game. This game its fantastic. But you maybe are from the 128 bits generation, 3D 3D 3D, flashes, flashes, Bla,bla,bla, and game-play its 0. This its a real great game.
How can people say the graphics aren't good? Oh I'm sorry, you wanted a realistic piece of meat jumping around? Just watch the introduction video, Meat Boy is adorable :)
This game wasn't created for its looks but it's actual creativity in which they did a great job with
Something i've always believed in, fun gameplay over superb graphics anyday. Good graphics can only take you so far. If this game is two player then, it's an absolute gem. Love it.
Well, the review for this game certainly validates everything I've been saying for a long time on this site; the best games are Indie right now. Creativity, clear mechanics, original ideas, and very surprising execution are coming from some dev houses that nobody has heard of. Over the past couple of years, I have been seeing more and more of these massive corporate blockbusters completely fail because they don't listen to their fans, they are pressed for time trying to release a half finished game of some mishmash we've already seen 20 times over. I could sit here and list out 20 Indie games that are a must-have purchase today, yet I cannot do the same for the big-hitters out there churning out stale products in unfinished states every 8 months. Another plus with Indie games is that you can usually watch the product grow and include player's suggestions through the beta process where you are directly chatting with the developers about features and mechanics. I would love to see Gamespot open up a bit more to the Indie scene as that is where the REAL gems have been coming from for some time now and people are getting disillusioned with what gaming is all about with all the disposable games on the market these days.
