Limbo

Destructoid
7 October 2011
  • Summary: I'll be honest, I didn't expect much when I first heard about Limbo . To me, it looked and sounded like yet another art game that people clambered over each other to fellate because it made them feel intelligent. Then I played it. Then I shut my mouth. Then my jaw fell to the floor. Limbo is an art game, there's no doubt about that. More importantly, however, it is simply art.

  • Conclusion: If someone ever tells you videogames aren't art, strap them to a chair and make them play Limbo . Yes, it's that perfect.

21 July 2011
  • Summary: Somewhere between life and death lies limbo, a nightmarish place where the feeble rays of light that flicker from above are swallowed whole by ink-black shadows. A young boy, courageous though ill-equipped to survive in such a hostile place, is trapped in this dreamworld, locked away from the safety of reality. Dangerous creatures, hostile natives, and deadly traps populate this eerie plane of existence, making survival the only tangible goal to strive for.
  • Pros: Moody, black-and-white visuals, Excellent sound design, Thoughtful puzzles with lots of variety, Hidden secrets reward a second play-through
  • Cons: Ends abruptly

  • Excerpt: Webster’s non-religious definition of limbo reads: “A place or state of oblivion to which persons or things are regarded as being relegated when cast aside, forgotten, past, or out of date.” Well, that fits. In PlayDead’s creative and surprisingly addicting title, we find ourselves in a very dark world, where even our main character is merely a shadow with eyes.

LIMBO Review

GamerNode
20 July 2010
  • Excerpt: When a player is presented with a gap in the ground, the natural inclination is to vault over it. But if, say, the ground on the other side were actually quicksand, then the player would be surprised to find that the gap should not be vaulted. In this way, a game can surprise a gamer, dismantling preconceived notions about the game world. Here, the game is, in some sense, playing the gamer. Such is LIMBO .
  • Pros: Intense art style, Challenges the way a player thinks, Mystery keeps player wondering, Twist ending
  • Cons: Trial-and-death play can feel cheap

Limbo Review

19 July 2010
  • Summary: Playdead's Xbox Live Arcade title Limbo is like a gorgeously constructed mix of Lost, Edward Gorey, LittleBigPlanet, and just a dash of Portal thrown in for good measure. It is one of the most haunting and finely crafted games of the year, downloadable or otherwise.
  • Pros: Hauntingly beautiful art design, Simplistic, yet genuinely terrifying, Brilliantly crafted puzzles
  • Cons: Creepiness sadly tapers off toward finale, Eventually, it comes to an end

  • Summary: Limbo je úchvatnou plošinovkou s vynikajícím vizuálním zpracováním, které vytváří až hororovou atmosféru a chytne každého hráče za srdce. Pokud vám nevadí nějaký ten logický problém a rádi si i procvičíte mozek, je Limbo hrou, kterou byste si neměli nechat ujít. Nyní už díky rozšíření platforem si ho můžete užít jak na Xboxu 360 tak na Playstationu 3. Za mě rozhodně doporučuju.
