Ripten Review: Super Meat Boy (Xbox Live Arcade)

When approaching this new platformer, Super Meat Boy, I had to take a tough critical standpoint – It’s hard to live up to the platformers of the past. Gamers today live off of the nostalgia of when these games were amazing and a few classics gone have made their mark on gaming history. In fact, we still speak highly of retro games such as Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog two decades later. And there is a reason for it; those games are damn good. Now think of any platformer that has come out anytime from 2000-2010. There have been a ton of great ones (most of them indie) but will any of them be talked about twenty years from today? This is where Super Meat Boy comes in. A downloadable platformer that breaks up the monotony of upcoming releases this holiday. This is our generation’s Super Mario.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow! I am seeing a ton of good scores for this game. I'm going to download the demo and take a look at this thing.

It's coming soon. If you have an Xbox, just download the demo to hold you over until it releases on WiiWare.
