*SPOILERS* Can someone explain to me what's so hard about the fire spiral in the Meat Circus?
Seriously, I don't get it. I took a look at that part and went "wow, that's sadistic," but I did it on my first try with no problem at all. And yes, I went on the outside, not the inside. All you have to do is jump out, then double jump back. Easy. I can see why this would be hard for someone not experienced with platformers, but I just don't get why this is so difficult that it makes people give up on the game.

The only thing people need to remember doing that is dont move your controller up untill the last second when you want to grab when jumping and it's pretty easy.

Way I do it is just to mash the jump button so it guarantees you get your double jump when you leap off the netting, then hold the float button. Works every time.

You are just amazing, what more can be said

Yeah, it was harder when I didn't realize the "Jump backwards, then forwards" thing worked really well.

The problem was when you first get there you have a lot of time to move around, like an extra 10-15 seconds, if you fall down once and when it restart you get around 5 seconds to move your ♥♥♥ up.

The camera was a bit problematic at the area too.

Well what did you expect, you can see how ♥♥♥♥ty controls and camera movements are at the begining of the game.

My main problem there was that Raz didn't want to double jump half the time.

It's patched on the Steam version, try the GOG version for a real challenge!

There isn't a method you just have to belive in your self.

It depends on if you have the game on pc or xbox pc is mainly a lot harder.

why is it harder?

Becuse the xbox controls are a bit closer and easier to get the hang of, but the pc controls are seperated far apart and it can be a lot harder to get the hang of if you are a newbie.
