5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece 2 July 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Imagine if David Lynch was allowed to take a break from making movies and make a Mario/platform game. Then you may get some approximation of what this game has to offer. Superb atmosphere, beautiful monochrome backdrops, erie ambient music(?) and puzzles galore. It is however a tad on the short side and some of the puzzles can be unforgiving and a matter of trial and error. For the price though this really is a must-have buy, especially for those who want something on a tangent to mainstream gaming. In a nutshell, this is one of those rare games that will live in your memory forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gem of Modern Gaming 15 July 2012
By Riffan
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Gaming today often has too much to it, complications, a lot of noise and a lot questions, sometimes simplicity serves better. And LIMBO is simple, very simple, perfectly effective. It essentially is a puzzle solving game in a 2D monochrome world where you play a boy going through this haunting world, dodging death and outwitting the numerous scenarios blocking your path. However the idea of this game is not so much its main selling point, rather the execution. Visually LIMBO is stunning in its simplicity, the lack of colorful distraction and the emphasis on shadow play and lack of full visualization is perfect for what the game is trying to do. The game is atmospheric, entrancing and truly other-worldly with its monochrome setting and eerie score which accompanies. As well as this the single-path way is in a way, far more entertaining that a multiple option / 3D work, it keeps the game going at a steady pace and means you are more enthralled and brought into the story than actually focusing on the fact its a game.

LIMBO's plot is very easy - there is none other than a basic premise, a boy is searching through this LIMBO world to find the fate of his sister, that's all we know. And in some cases we need know nothing else, all we have to show for all this is the boy, a silhouette with two white eyes which glance and blink with no exaggeration. Despite not seeing anything detailed on this boy we actually come to sympathize with him a lot more than hours devoted to characters on Skyrim could achieve - why? Is it because we don't know what this world is and that he's alone, is it those eyes, or is it the fact that unless you move carefully he dies in a multitude of ways, gruesome and / or haunting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly recommended platformer 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase
Limbo is a dark and atmospheric puzzle-platformer. Its graphics are very simple; you can only see the silhouette of the character you're controlling and the outline of the rest of the world. There are no fights with enemies; you can only run around, jump, and interact with a few objects. Be prepared to die a lot, though!

PS: The limited addition box set is completely worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric. 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase
A very odd game done in black and white. This is a sideways scrolling puzzler where you will gladly sacrifice the characters life to watch the entertaining and well thought out grizzly deaths.
Also, it's like a fiver, what's to stop you.

I'm no game player - look at the images and decide for yourself. I did need to look at the cribs on line, and I do get bored with making the same mistake over and over again so not being able to complete a sequence
