An Incredible Journey on a Great Game
This game was amazing to say the least. It is one of my favorite games of all time. Though it's a "Trial and Death" game (Meaning you play one part over and over again until you get it right). One aspect every gamer will enjoy is it's lack of loading screens. There are no cutscenes and no loading screens so it is the smoothest game you will ever play. The controls couldn't be simpler and the mind bending puzzles are sure to leave you thinking. The only downside is after you get all the achievements and beat the game, there is no reason to come back. Even with this, it is one of my favorite games of all time so far.
So simple yet addicting!!
The atmosphere draws you in. Its so dark with just different shades and so many dangers. Its a fun little game to play. If you have 10 bucks, buy it!
An Amazing Puzzle Game
Limbo is a one of a kind game. It is a puzzle game that tests the mind. Limbo's graphics are a type of black and white shading that creates the game out of shadows. The graphics make the game look more like a panting that you can stare at for hours. The black and white shading causes a creepy and lonesome atmosphere that stays throughout the whole game. The soundtrack that plays throughout the game is the sounds of nature and what you would hear depending on the location in the game (such as a forest or factory). Music picks up when something is about to happen, which causes you to scan the screen for anything that might jump out at you. The game if full of puzzles that get harder each time and the landscapes give you a picture of the loneliness that the game is full of. The ending leaves you guessing and sparks theries. The only real downside to Limbo is that it's short, it takes only 3-4 hours of nonstop gameplay to complete it. But I still highly reconmend this game for anyone who loves puzzles and is a great game to play.
I WANT MORE!
I bought this game after i played the demo at a friends house, but i didn't realize how amazing the game was until i played about half way through. This game makes you think and pay attention to detail more than any game i have played. Its a great game to sit down with some friends and see who can figure it out the fastest.
u just walk down the road and all of the sudden a 50 ft tall spider stabs u in the face but thats how eciting it is!
Modern Day Pitfall
I just downloaded this for ps3 last night and it's a joy to play. I can see once I"'m good at the game it will be one of those games you can just go through and entertain people almost. I think it's a modern day pitfall, once you are good you just roll through it. If your friends want to sit back and watch, jam some tunes or whatever. An Excellent game that I think I'll always want to go back and play for years to come.
Limbo is a pretty fun puzzle game with fun gameplay and It has a creepy atmosphere. Fun to play for hours. This game is not for the easily angered.
This game is simply amazing. At first glance it may seem like an ordinary puzzle game, but when you finish this game and realize the true meaning and brilliant designing behind it, you'll see why it has so many perfect reviews. Only complaint I have is it seemed short and toke me only two days to beat. But still, this game is worth the points/$. Trust me.
You are put into a mysterious world and all you know is that you must move forward. Great game that sucks you in to it's dark world. Simple game play mechanics but very entertaining. Beautiful graphics.
A fun, confusing, and intriguing game
I picked this game up 6 months ago because of all the great reviews, it was a great choice. This game will run you 5-6 hours for a play-through and that is about it, but it is well worth it. Be forewarned, this game is graphic, i am pretty surprised they were allowed to kill a child over and over in a game. Nevertheless the puzzles are always different and challenging, while constantly changing styles to prevent boredom. The progression almost reminds me of portal. Right when you master one technique they throw another one at you. All in all this is a great game that should be picked up with the fair warning that you might only play it once.
