LIMBO

True achievements

  • Conclusion: I was one of those that dismissed most XBLA games for the cost-to-gamerscore ratio in the past. Oh, how ever wrong I was! Games like this justify the existence of XBLA and PSN, and digital distribution in general. If you've yet to try out Limbo, I'd highly recommend it.

Limbus infantium.

GameSpot
11 December 2014
  • Summary: "Nana, do little boys and girls go to heaven when they die?" "No, honey. They go to limbo." This conversation with my grandmother introduced me to the idea of an otherworldly realm in which I pictured children wandering aimlessly through darkness and mist, denied the pleasure of communing with God.
  • Pros: Striking atmosphere that chills the heart, Excellent, poignant moments that stay with you, Cold, gruesome deaths are presented with memorable and horrific apathy, Introduces more involved puzzles at a satisfying pace
  • Cons: The most haunting imagery is limited to the first half, Ending doesn't emerge organically from the hour leading to it

Limbo contains the wonderful aesthetics and crafty puzzles from the previous versions, but the atmosphere isn't quite as striking on a smaller screen.

  • Summary: Almost three years after Limbo landed on the Xbox 360, it finally arrives on the Vita. Limbo is nearly unchanged from its previous incarnations, and in it, you roam through ink-black locales, overcoming traps while braving the suffocating atmosphere.
  • Pros: Moody, black-and-white visuals, Excellent sound design, Thoughtful puzzles with lots of variety, Hidden secrets reward a second playthrough
  • Cons: Audio and visuals aren't as impactful on the Vita

  • Conclusion: No Story - While the lack of music works, the lack of any story does detract from the game somewhat. Puzzle/side-scrolling games do not necessarily need to be devoid of any story, as Braid so appropriately pointed out to the gaming industry as a whole.

  • Summary: Игра-загадка, игра-сон, игра-настроение. Стандартные рамки не для нее. Приключение получилось красивым, насыщенным, но уж очень коротким Limbo можно пробежать за вечер. При этом каждый найдет что-то для себя.

Test: Limbo

  • Summary: "Trial and Error" - ein Verfahren, dass mindestens in der Informatik-Szene Gang und Gebe ist. Die Bedeutung ist heutzutage beinahe jedem geläufig und stößt überall auf leichtes Stirnrunzeln. Warum nicht also ein Spiel ins Leben rufen, dass von dieser Mechanik lebt?

  • Excerpt: Originalmente de 2010, Limbo foi finalmente lançado para a PSN e PC, será que é merecedor da estrondosa recepção crítica que teve no ano passado aquando do seu lançamento para a XBOX 360?

  • Excerpt: С каждым днем разработчикам инди-игр все труднее завоевать сердце пользователя. Казалось бы, совсем недавно каждое третье произведение от независимых студий было настоящим шедевром.

  • Excerpt: I en dusmørk skog sperrer en liten gutt øynene opp i en minimalistisk verden kledd i sort og hvitt. Et nådeløst sted som viser seg å være fullt av underfundige gåter og brutalitet. Uten å vite stort mer begir den lille krabaten seg ut på en nervepirrende reise med lumske farer og grufulle fiender.
  • Pros: Atmosfæren, mystikken, særpreget, nådeløsheten
  • Cons: Mye gjetting
