Summary: Limbo is a very good game, however its major drawback is the length of the game. Its worth the purchase price, but if your looking for a game that will have hours and hours of replay value; you may want to look somewhere else.
Summary: Limbo is a remarkable experience that any game fan should experience. "The boy" is a nearly fearless protagonist that runs straight into a world of darkness to save his sister. The game is a puzzle based platformer that always changes and makes you think about even the simple things for a solution.
Summary: Atmospheric, clever and challenging.The controls are tight and it makes a nice use of physics .It requires quick reactions, and you will die a lot, and the game is based on learning from your mistakes.A forgiving checkpoint prevents the game from getting frustrating A great game overall.
Summary: Interesting platform-puzzled gameplay. It was fun while it lasted (super short). I did have a problem with the "storytelling portion." The game gave no background of what was going on except for the game details in the Steam store.
Summary: Turning the limitations of a small Indy game into a strength, Limbo is short but fun, has a memorable art style and is a must play downloadable game. The visuals of Limbo are simple and effectively create an eerie atmosphere better than most AAA video games.
"An enjoyable game which provides a point of difference"

Summary: This is a game with a mood of its own, with puzzles which will challenge you and moments which may make you gasp out loud. I really enjoyed playing something different than the RPGs and shooters I frequent. There's no talking, just a score which sets the mood and muted black and white scenery.
Summary: This on its outer level appears as a simplistic game, however as you delve deeper into the mystery you are presented with, one finds challenging puzzles and symbolism everywhere. a fantastic game, entertaining, difficult at times, and enticing to those who enjoy a story.
Good for the price but not the best SE in the world.

Summary: I've got the game on XBLA and loved it, who cares if it's a bit short. Quality not quantity. The contents are good, not the best. The 3D glasses are a bit cheap but the sticker is good although it has no stroke so if your sticking it on something black you won't notice it.
