Super Meat Boy Game Accessibility Review
4 January 2011
Excerpt: The gist of Super Meat Boy is that Meat Boy and Bandage Girl love one another. Dr. Fetus hates Meat Boy - so much so that Dr. Fetus kidnaps Bandage Girl. Meat Boy loves Bandage Girl so much so that he’s willing to go to horrendous lengths to get his Bandage Girl back, and Dr. Fetus is willing to go horrendous lengths to keep Bandage Girl from Meat Boy. That same old story. Team Meat did some cool stuff with Super Meat Boy.

Conclusion: Super Meat Boy is a must buy for everyone that enjoys a challenge and is gifted with a fair amount of patience and a pinch of determination. The game can at times be hard but ultimately is a lot kinder than the classic retro platformers that inspired its creation. The only thing potentially missing is a co-op mode, perhaps in the same vein as Splosion Man ’s but with so much content already in the game, it’s almost not worth mentioning.
Summary: The 2008 release of Prince of Persia took the franchise in an invigorating new direction, employing open-world design and a painterly artistic style to great effect. It breathed life into a series that had been treading water for years, but you won't see any of those new elements in The Forgotten Sands. This is a throwback to the superb Sands of Time, focusing on elaborate level design and the sort of acrobatic wonder that would make even the most agile monkey jealous.
Pros: Platforming sections have lots of thrilling moments, New abilities spice up the standard jumping action, Clever puzzles require careful thought to complete, The prince's narration adds personality to the story
Cons: Combat is shallow and way too easy, Camera restrictions makes certain sections difficult to navigate, Early portions are too familiar, Copy protection scheme requires constant Internet access
Review: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (PS3/360)
23 May 2010
Excerpt: The long-running and (for the most part) critically acclaimed Prince of Persia series continues with two different games across four platforms this month, all of which bear the same name: The Forgotten Sands.
Summary: « Prince of Persia: Забытые пески » можно назвать разочарованием – ни капли свежих идей и довольно обычная реализация старых. Но играть всё равно интересно. Вероятно из-за невероятного запаса прочности гениальной Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time , на которую « Забытые пески » так стараются безрезультатно равняться.
Excerpt: Frischfleisch für ausgehungerte Jump&Run-Fans: Ein verliebtes Steak macht sich auf die Suche nach seiner von Dr. Fetus entführten Freundin Bandage Girl - und hüpft, rennt und rutscht aus diesem Grund mit irrem Tempo durch über 300 verwinkelte 2D-Level. Dabei versucht "Super Meat Boy", alles zu meiden, was einem saftigen Burschen wie ihn gefährlich werden könnte: Salz, Sägen, Stacheln, Reißzähne ...
