I’ve been waiting for this for ages, and if it wasn’t for New Vegas I’d have pounced on it the second it appeared on XBLA. As it is, I decided to play it last night instead of roam the Wasteland some more.
In theory, it is fantastic. The graphic style is lovely, the funny touches (like the skit of the Street Fighter II opening sequence), and the blood OH THE GLORIOUS BLOOD everywhere are amazing. It’s a simple, difficult, precision platformer. Which, after nearly finishing off the first two levels reminded me of something else: N+.
N+ is virtually the same game. They feel the same. They control almost the same. They’re both bloody difficult. Which leaves me with a problem. I gave up on N+ as it just got too hard. I feel Super Meat Boy might be going that way too. We’ll see.
