Fall Damage: "Super Meat Boy is one of the most addicting experiences I’ve had with a controller in hand. The game is jam-packed with references to the classic games I played growing up: Castlevania, Street Fighter, Ninja Gaiden. Each world of Super Meat Boy features an intro movie that mimics one of the classic game intros of that generation. There’s even a boss that tips off his attacks by blinking (see Punch-Out). But the most fitting tribute is the game itself, which is simultaneously a throwback and improvement upon those classic games. Though some gamers may be turned off by the near-constant death required to plow through this game, those who give it a chance will be rewarded with one of the best platformers released in this or any other generation. Super Meat Boy expects you to be perfect, because it is."
