LIMBO (Xbox 360)

True achievements
13 December 2014
  • Conclusion: A bit short, some might say, but the experience is in turn 100% intense and unique. The game's graphic and sound level also reaches new heights, and I'd be very surprised if not Limbo, when the year is over, are among the nominees for this year's game the 2010th 10/10...

  • Conclusion: Limbo is a fine example of how you can create a masterpiece, yet sell it through the Xbox Live arcade at a budget price. It may not be the longest game, but to capture the imagination of any player is something that is a rarity in gaming.

  • Excerpt: After a quick look at Limbo you would be forgiven for thinking that it is simply an old-school 2D Platformer with a very pretty style. It is a 2D platformer in the truest sense; you move your character to the right jumping over traps and pulling levers to avoid death.

Arresting imagery of an afterworld creates interactive art.

Common Sense Media
10 January 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Limbo is a very difficult puzzle platformer with mature themes and a surprising amount of gore, considering it’s rendered completely in greyscale. Though open to interpretation, the general consensus is that the story explores the notion of purgatory.

  • Excerpt: With the influx of pretty independent games over the last ten years it's easy to start glazing over when you're staring at high quality artsy aesthetic. The Noughties taught us that armchair productions weren't actually rubbish after all.
