Spoiler warning! I felt that some of the video sequences in the review contained far too many hints. If you're considering purchasing the game (and it's a very worthwhile purchase, esp. if you can find it in a pack with other indie games!), then rather scroll the video window out of view and just listen to the review's audio.

Tom Mc Shea navigates a treacherous path in this video review for Limbo.
Limbo is one of those games I really wish would come to GOG. I recently bought Machinarium and Botanicula from GOG. Awesome indie stuff.
that game.that ending...too good to be real.even though after playing it im not really sure of what is real
One of the most innovative games I have ever played. A pity it's only available through PSN. (I just played the demo)
A gaming experience i'll not forget in a hurry. Just finished it, died many times through trial and error. Got stuck for ages also but when I did get out a certain part/puzle it was fantastic. Moody, gothic black and white visuals, and uniquely atmospheric. The secret white eggs hidden make a second bash a must. The vulnerabilty of the character keeps u on your toes, and when he does die it's disheartening but simultaneously awesome. A sequel sooner later please!
tried it, way too frustrating, especially when you can't see squat and chainsaws are cutting your limbs off
It's pretty wierd how I've never been so shocked in a game before that bear trap, I had no idea that was there! :P
Bravo! The reviewer nailed every single point that I had going through my mind as I was playing the game. It really is a brutal game.. first time I got my innocent young character suddenly and unceremoniously torn to shreds by a bear trap shocked me more than anything I've seen in any M rated game. Beautifully produced and well thought game, Limbo is a must try for any puzzle fans.
I'm glad this game has finally been brought to a wider audience! It is absolutely fantastic, I've played through it many times since last July. Still haven't gotten a no death run though...
Having impatientlly waiting for this for nearly a year, I finally got to play this on my PS3. And man, it was worth the wait. What an amazing game, worthy of all its high praise. You Xbox'ers were spoiled getting this a year ahead of us. I tip my hat to all of you.
@hasselwa who said: You'd buy a new HDTV for a $10 game just because the black levels aren't black enough on your current 46" HDTV? Either you are incredibly wasteful with money or just retarded. Ehh..? And you took me seriously, who is retarded i might ask?
@Izak80 who said: Renoo27, how long did it take to beat the game? Hope the black levels on my 46" Philips is up for the challenge. If not, this game is a great reason to buy a new one, looks wonderful. You'd buy a new HDTV for a $10 game just because the black levels aren't black enough on your current 46" HDTV?

I really love the art style in this game,glad its coming to PC.Cant wait to try it out,games like this are a nice change from a bunch of generic shooters we get nowdays.

@sonic0491: They this piece of art for us dude. I'm sure just playing it is gratitude enough. To quote Jacque Fresco: "(In a saner world) you wouldn't enjoy selling a painting, you would enjoy giving it away."
This game is absolutely amazing beginning to end. It also has some very deep themes if you choose look into it. My only pain is that purchasing the game and the awesome theme doesn't feel like I'm giving enough back to the developers for my gratitude of experiencing this masterpiece.
One word to describe this: beautiful. @Garygok: I know. I showed this to a friend of mine, and he's hooked. But he's on a PS3.
