    Limbo PC

    Despite being a short, rather simple platformer with almost no graphics to speak of, I really enjoyed this game. The depressing environments and the intriguing puzzles were quite original. The whole game, although short,... Read Full Review

    Looks nice, but the game itself is awful, avoid.

    First, let's just get the visuals out the way. It looks nice and has a nice atmosphere to go with it. I have little in the way the complain about it in that sense. Though since so many other games have used the style sin... Read Full Review

    Far too much timing and trial and error puzzles

    I can see why a lot of people liked this game, but I can't say I do. The presentation is top notch and all, but most the challenging puzzles are all about trial and error and/or tight timing (and I mean tight). You ca... Read Full Review

    Alone in the Dark

    What makes nightmares the most scary is sometimes the length of time it takes to wake from them even though in the physical world you weren't under that long but in the dream world it can almost feel like an eternity. ... Read Full Review

    This game is one of the craziest games I have seen in a long time. It does more with less. Nothing but Hazards here.

    Graphics aint everything, and this game proves that. No bright colors, no musical score, no dialog, no real story. I am wondering how they did it. I have been wanting this game since it came out, but they never made it a... Read Full Review

    Some oil added to the bubble bath

    Amusement parks have those gigantic stuffed animal prizes. Not a simple feet to claim one for your own, but if you do I imagine carrying one of those fat beasts around is as convenient as trying to cook dinner with a go... Read Full Review

    LIMBO stumbles just enough to fall short of being amazing, but the end result is still very much worth playing.

    Pros: Well-designed puzzles; Fantastic atmosphere; Good pacing Cons: Too much trial-and-error; Controls aren't set up for precision demands of later puzzles; Can't rebind keyboard controls I wish Limbo was more li... Read Full Review
