Omg this game kicks my @$$!
holy crap, this game is sssooo much fun!!! it is really hard but i love it, i've only unlocked Pico.
To the complainers......
The first time I played this I had not played the origional meat boy and I still found it to be extremely fun. Regardless of the high challenge level this game always seems to draw me back in for more awsome platforming goodness. Regardless of me apperent suckage level at this game I still find it addicting and highly enjoyable. I demand this game be made into an Xbox Live Arcade game this instant!!!
To all the people complaining about the difficulty
It is you who suck, plain and simple.
"I am more than adept at handling meat boy"
Apparently not. I played through the original once and completed about 80% of the maps. I've completed about 60% of the maps in this one this far. I think this one has much funner maps than the original. Some are frustrating, but every single one is very enjoyable. And someof the maps have almost an adventure game feel to them.
Also, it's written in clear text that it's recommended to be played with a 360 controller. I've tried it and the controls are much better suited for the 360 controller. I still play it with a keyboard because I mostly play at work where a 360 controller would look suspicous and it is a bit jumpy with a keyboard, but still very tight.
Suck it up and increase your skill level on the original then attack this one. The difiiculty is perfect for those who have played through most of the original.
...go FAQ yourself
I am more than adept at handling meat boy from the last game, this isn't frustrating, it's a sheer waste of time, because there is a rather thick line between "difficult yet addictive" and "this is plain stupid" yet you managed to cross it.
Frustrating yes...Fun no!!
Games are meant to add fun to your life NOT frustration. This game simply adds more frustration into your life. Why make a game so difficult that noone can finish it?
