Super Meat Boy Review (Fall Damage)

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." (Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360) 5/5
