    Dark atmosphere and a darker theme.

    Rated on April 01, 2012 by veganintendo

    This game had me curious from the moment I laid my eyes on the gameplay. it's pretty, dark and very atmospheric. Darkness is all you see, no lights, detail on characters or heavy sound FX, just a depr...

    Depressing, but great atmosphere building, and never does the same puzzle twice. A MUST-PLAY if you love puzzle games.

    I got this during the Steam Summer Sale in 2012 for $2.49. I always heard it was a good game, but thought that 1200 Microsoft Points was a bit expensive. I'm going to tell you, right-of-the-bat, yo...

    -= It's all about game design =-

    Rated on August 10, 2012 by asolec

    Great game. Short but it is how the designer wanted it. People who invested money into the game wanted the creators to make the game longer but the designers wanted it to be about 2-3 hours to finish....

    Limbo has a wonderfully unique style to it but it sacrificed content in the long run

    Rated on February 16, 2013 by SR71halo

    It is true that XBLA games very often try to be as artsy and creative as possible with their visuals, and Limbo is certainly no exception. On the outside this game is about as atmospheric as it gets ...

    The dolorous adventure ends too soon, but the monochromatic penumbra shall haunt your memory long after the credits roll

    Rated on November 20, 2012 by pavel_btn

    Somewhere beyond demise, where lost souls wander helplessly in search of absolution, there is a place called Limbo. This dark and menacing plain of reality is inhabited by hostile dwellers and malicio...

    There aren't many games that can present a depressing, black and white 2D platformer. LIMBO succeeds in every aspect.

    Some oil added to the bubble bath

    Rated on June 17, 2013 by Rotondi

    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 c...

    A surprisingly addictive game. Once you have started, you simply can't stop playing it. Smartest puzzles ever!

    Rated on February 09, 2013 by edu_barth

    One of the few best games I have ever played, and recommend, is Limbo. An environment of light fear and smartly-done puzzles made me happy for eight hours at least. I hope there is a continuation for ...
