  • 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or state of oblivion to which persons or things are regarded as being relegated when cast aside, forgotten, past, or out of date.”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.

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.
  • 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

G4
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

Limbo

GamesRadar
19 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Out on Wednesday the 21st of July for XBLA, PlayDead’s Limbo is an experience you won’t find anywhere else. You know that feeling you get after a really intense, really weird dream?
  • Pros: Amazing atmosphere, Clever, organic puzzles that don't get tired, Captivating visual style
  • Cons: Could have been longer, Late-game platforming can feel very slightly clunky, Vague achievements (sorry, it's just so nearly perfect)

  • Summary: Er zijn van die spellen die alles nét wat anders proberen. Limbo, dat een jaar geleden al op de Xbox 360 verscheen, is een van die spellen en kreeg om die reden ook erg veel lof. Het spel heeft ondertussen ook zijn weg gevonden naar de PlayStation 3 en de PC.
  • Pros: Fantastisch visuele stijl, Interessant gebruik geluid, Uitdaging zonder veel frustratie, Interessante puzzels
  • Cons: Aan de korte kant

Limbo

gamekyo.com
30 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Que ce soit sur le Xbox Live Arcade ou sur le Playstation Store , Limbo reste une des plus belles perles du dématérialisé, dont on se souviendra probablement encore dans quelques années. Une très courte mais excellente expérience à vivre seul dans le noir, pour s'imprégner un maximum de l'ambiance.
