Are Alice Madness Returns and Limbo worth buying? For cheap in the case of Alice. Limbo is download only.

Limbo is absolutely a fantastic puzzler platformer that last about 3-4 hours. Never played alice.

Limbo is awesome 9/10, Alice is okay, pretty cool actually, but rough around the edges and spotty camera 7/10.

Limbo is short, I have it on three platforms, beat it three times. It's fun, but I liked some other titles in that category better. I think the atmosphere is the best part, not necessarily the trial and error platforming which you can find in many quality games.

Alice is decent, but it's a sequel to a PC game I played over a decade ago. I imagine it would be better to start with that game before jumping to the sequel, especially because I believe the first one is better anyways in my estimation as a gamer (plus, Metacritic agrees with me by 10 points). I read that they released the first game, American' McGee's Alice on PS360, but I have yet to play those versions. I am holding on to my oldschool memories, like the day I bought Max Payne on PC and showing all my friends.

I would make sure you get both games on DISCOUNT. No sense in paying top dollar, even though both are relatively cheap. You waited till 2013, may as well wait for a sale.

Limbo is a must have.

Limbo isn't worth more than a couple bucks in my opinion. Crappy gameplay, and literally the only good thing about it is the atmosphere. Haven't played Alice.

Same here. Loved Limbo. Can't make a qualified comment about Alice.

Not a SW topic, but try the SW lounge its usually pretty decent place to get advice about games without the bias ;)
