Summary: For only a third of the game's original $15 on other consel systems, the iOS version of LIMBO truly is the bang for your buck. You are given extremely well controls that rely on swipes made by the player. For a game originally played on a controller, its impressive to not deal with clunky controls and buttons on screen typically found in iOS ports. This adds a lot of interactivity to the game and hopefully more iOS games will implement this control scheme.
Summary: Atmosphere is king in this 2D puzzle-platformer, and I feel that does hurt it a little bit on the Vita. It's a game that soars when you play it alone in a darkened room with headphones on. Given the nature of portable gaming systems such as Sony's handheld, odds are most people are going to play on a family trip or in a waiting room or something. Sadly that takes a bit out of what makes this experience so grand. It's a haunting game.
Summary: Great three-pack for platform gamers. Limbo is a must have in anybodies collection, simply stunning, could play it over and over and never get tired of the Noir style, and difficult challenges it presents. The other two are just bonus games, get this because it has Limbo in it, you won't be disappointed.

Summary: I wish they made more of these. Not everyone had Xbox live or Internet access. I bough this for my brother who lives in the country, and does not have high speed. There are many more Xbox live arcade games that I would love to introduce him too, but sadly they just don't make compilation discs like this. Overall though, like I said in the title, worth it just for Limbo and Trials.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A great game for what it is. I actually love the art style and the black and white game presentation. It's a puzzle platformer with some horror elements. The puzzle's itself aren't too hard or too easy, I'm not the smartest so this was actually a decent challenge for me... To put this game in perspective there's no story nor dialogue, and the ending was very quick and subtle with no definitive answer it seems..
