    Love me some physical

    Super Meat Boy has been around for quite some time. It is not a newer sequel, to confirm it is the same old, die a thousand deaths, Super Meat Boy. You either love it or hate. So I'm not going to review the game itself, that has been done to death (pun intended? sure why not). I am instead reviewing the fact that this is a physical release. The company Limited Run Games put out this physical release like so many others they have and I am a particular fan that they have partnered with Best Buy for some of their more popular releases. The cover art is different from the one Limited Run sold on their website, but that makes little difference to me. It comes with a cool little comic/manual insert in the box as well (which many physical releases lack). Very happy with this purchase.

    I've always enjoyed hard platformers and there's something funny about seeing how many times you've failed at the end of a really tough one in Super Meat Boy. Most stages can be beaten in under two minutes but the run up to besting the stage can take 20 or more tries. There's hundreds of levels as well and most of the boss fights are a real challenge. The biggest problem with this particular version of the game is the average soundtrack. It isn't bad exactly, just I know how good the original one on Steam was and that version had it perfect. Still, having the ability to beat a stage or two while on break at work or sink an evening into beating a whole world was worth giving up the perfect score from the PC version.

    One of the All Time Best Platform Games

    10 years after its initial release, Super Meat Boy still holds up as one of the best platform games of its kind. Stages are short and sweet, but the challenge and speed make the game both addicting and highly replayable. In my opinion SMB controls best on the Switch, especially when playing with the joy-con due to the shorter joysticks allowing you to change direction quicker than you could with taller joysticks. While the digital version is cheaper and more convenient for jumping in and out of the game, the physical version is still a nice addition for the collectors since it's complete with a mini art book/instruction manual and double-sided cover art.

    Challenging (and famous) Indie Platformer

    Super Meat Boy is a platformer made by a small "indie" team. It originally released on Xbox 360, and then went to Steam. The game later received ports on the PS4 and also the PS Vita. Just recently the developers released this on the Nintendo Switch. The game is excellent. My only complaint is that this game doesn't have the original soundtrack that was originally released on the Xbox 360. Still buy this game. Limited Run Games handled physical copies for the Nintendo Switch, and Best Buy is the only place where you can purchase a physical copy for yourself.

    a hardcore retro adventure game

    In this old school platformer, you play the unlikely protagonist of a wad of meat rescuing your girlfriend made of gauze (Bandage girl) from the equally unlikely antagonist Dr. Fetus (a baby in a jar). The game only has two buttons (jump and sprint) and the controls feel great, as they should in a platformer. With that said, be prepared to die a lot. Super Meat Boy calls back to a time when games were simpler, yet more challenging. Feel free to check out this great modern platformer.

    Fun classic in physical form for the Switch

    So glad Best Buy teamed up with Limited Run Games to release some select titles for retail, this being one of them. This one is special because it's out way before the LRGs copies on their site. I'm glad I can own this physically instead of on my Switch's memory. As for the game, it's a pretty challenging platformer, but runs pretty well on the Switch. Any complaints are just on the Switch's joycons, those take some getting used to.

    Super Meat Boy is hard and very challenging but it's also fun, too. It definitely challenges you to go farther and when you get past a difficult part, you feel triumphant. The sound effects are great and graphics are fitting. This is a definite buy. Especially for this Best Buy exclusive physical release! Be sure to check out the creators other games he made, also on the Switch.

    So much meat in this game. As far as I can tell very little of it is actually cooked. So you're looking at mostly raw ground beef here. I'd prefer it cooked to be honest but this is ok. What? No side dishes? Where's the potato salad? Also, (and this is BIG) you do a lot of jumping with this meat. Like... a LOT of jumping. Do you like jumping meat? You're going to love this.

    I've never actually played Super Meat Boy for and am a big physical collector of games, so this was perfect for me! It comes with a really fun booklet that details the making of the game and has some fun concept sketches and commentary. The game itself is brutally hard but never feels "unfair"-I couldn't put it down until I had finished it! Highly recommended.

    Simple controls but difficult gameplay. You die, a lot, in this game but through trial and error and experience and perseverance and luck and...you get the picture...you finally get though those tough as nails levels. And when you do, boy does it feel good. Meatboy Is all charm and even more grit. Get this limited physical release while you can!

    I played this game initially on PC and absolutely loved it. I'm very glad that this game is on Nintendo Switch as well too. This is a great game to pop into the console when in handheld mode- and even docked. These types of games just feel like they were made especially for a handheld gaming console, and I'm glad I purchased it for the switch.

    I missed the opportunity to buy this for the switch the first time Limited Run Games put this game out. Thankfully BestBuy now appears to have a relationship with Limited Run games, so I was given another opportunity. This game is great. I love playing it with friends. The levels can get pretty challenging, so you never get bored.

    Still a fun platformer after all this time and deserved a physical release. Simple mechanics and responsive controls, the level design requires more and more precision as the game progresses. At the end it shows all attempts running the level at once which is pretty satisfying seeing all the times you went splat before nailing it.

    Remembered beating the base game on the 360 and had to get it on one of my favorite consoles today. Hands down one of the best platforming experiences out there and feels super satisfying when you manage to clear a hurdle. Maybe this time I will actually finish the Bandage Girl stages.

    An absolute classic platformer that you can bring on the road now thanks to the Nintendo Switch. Game plays great, though I wish the Switch had a proper D-pad for more fine movement. Either way its a well done port that visually holds up whether your are in handheld mode or playing it on the big screen

    This game is fun in short bursts as well as extended play times. Levels can become quite challenging, especially if you want to get A+ rating in them all, as well as collecting bandaids throughout the game. I’ve yet to beat the game, but have had some frustrating fun with it so far.

    Super Meat Boy for the NIntendo Switch is an amazingly well made port of an already challenging and hilarious game about a boy made of meat fighting to save his girlfriend from an evil fetus. That is all I need to say other than ITS NOW PORTABLE! :D

    For those of us that remember the 8- and 16-bit eras, we know that platformers were a dime a dozen. That is not the case with current consoles. This game retains a retro-look, while still being great on the TV. The gameplay is very challenging, just a heads-up.
