    Some players may be put off by the difficulty of Super Meat Boy, but if you stick with it then the sense of achievement when you overcome a tough level will keep you hungry for more!

    And although Meat Boy may not be as rare as he once was but there’s no doubting that his long-awaited arrival on a handheld is very well-done.

    Super Meat Boy is still fresh, fun and challenging five years after its original launch. Even the port that comes to PlayStation hasn't the original soundtrack, it still has some interesting new tunes and a very good adaptation to the Sony’s handheld console.

    I envy Sony fans that get to experience Super Meat Boy for the first time. Hundreds of levels, pixel-perfect controls, and a brand-new soundtrack cement the game as a must-play 2D platformer on the PlayStation 4 and Vita.

Sure, its difficulty is both legendary and extremely well documented, but what I find so appealing is the way this game encourages, nay demands, perfection.

    For me, SMB isn't just about making it through each level, it isn't about scoring an A+ on each stage, it isn't even about nabbing every last one of those devilishly positioned bandages. Well, in truth, I guess it is about these things, but what really gets my blood pumping is the race against the clock. Meticulously replaying each stage over and over and over until I've shaved every last tenth of a second and reached the very limits of my platforming skills. It has become an obsession.

    Undoubtedly, this will sound incredibly tedious to many gamers, but for me – and those who instinctively gel with SMB's nuances – it represents the very epitome of hardcore, twitch platforming. And that is why I love Super Meat Boy so very, very much.

    The fact that I can play it on my PS4 and then carry on right from where I left off on my Vita when I'm on the move is the icing on one hell of a sumptuous cake. Thus ensuring that Super Meat Boy on Playstation is the definitive version of the definitive indie platformer.

    "Super Meat Boy" llegó a la consola donde más disfrute me ha generado, el juego es un clásico del género indie, y tras su exitoso paso por"Super Meat Boy" llegó a la consola donde más disfrute me ha generado, el juego es un clásico del género indie, y tras su exitoso paso por XBox 360.
    A diferencia de tantos port de juegos que llegan a las consolas portátiles con bugs y errores "Super Meat Boy" corre fluido a 60fps con una respuesta de control precisa y con la ventaja de que puedes llevarte el juego a donde quieras.
    Mi recomendación es, si tienes una Vita este es un infaltable que tiene la ventaja de ser cross-buy y cross-play con PS4 lo que quiere decir que comprándolo una vez lo tienes en ambas consolas y el sistema de guardado se comparte vía on line por lo que puedes continuar tu juego en el otro sistema si dejas de hacerlo en uno.

    Lo bueno: La dificultad de siempre, controles precisos, estética gamer, port bien logrado, cross-buy.
    Lo malo: No tiene los niveles "Teh Internets".

    Super Frustrating
    Super Meatboy is an insta death platformer wit hpuzzle elements where you play as meat boy trying to get through this games 7 different chapters and save bandage girl from the evil dr fetus
    This game can be beaten in about 6 hours despite each level beign designed to be beaten in less than 20 seconds..
    The hook of this game is its frustratingly addictive difficulty
    The mechanics of Super Meat Boy is simple, which makes it so easy to pick up and in turn so easy to forgive as youre dying over and over..
    You jump, run jump, or wall jump…
    Nothing else…
    Its up to you to use these mechanics to maneuver through the games many obstacle courses of blades, lava, and salt.. and you only have one life to do this…
    The difficulty of levels is really up and down..
    And this is thanks to the game constantly adding new obstacles and enemies to deal with as the game goes on…
    When a new mechanic is introduced it will slow down a bit..
    This in turn creates a great pacing.. the levels aren’t constantly smacking you over the head with difficulty..
    Youll at times get a nice breather…
    But when levels are hard theyre hard…
    and despite them making you want to pull your hair out, its just as hard to put down the controller and walk away.. at least for a little while…
    For me the Charm of super meat boy started to wear off by chapter 3..
    I was over the hook of dying and retrying, but that’s mostly because of the kind of gamer I am…
    Im not into punishment for more than a little while..
    But if you are one of those sick freaks that likes getting to the point of wanting to break your controller, Super Meat Boy is a great platformer full of collectables to unlock new characters, hidden levels, charm, great characters, and surprisingly engaging boss battles that only feel cheap the first 100 times you die…
    I give Super Meat Boy
    an 8/10

    Oh well. It's still Super Meat Boy, so it's otherwise the great game you know and love. I would have liked to see the level creation tool from the PC version make a return though.
