    LIMBO

    Limbo creates an exciting dreamlike experience, but this dream is over too quickly.

    Games that go for a minimalistic approach are either hit or miss. One look at Limbo in action is enough to figure out that it's a game with an endearing concept. Limbo takes a risky approach to game design because it mak... Read Full Review
