Dying in A Game Never Felt So Good
on July 05, 2013 at 06:29 PM
I’m sure I’ve mentioned in previous writings how big a deal I believe atmosphere is in video games. As of late, developers seem to be thinking the same thing; indie developers in particular. What with the huge competition between the upcoming next-gen consoles, one of the big arguments between...
Review - Limbo (PSN)
on September 09, 2012 at 09:00 PM
oh, where to begin with this game... Limbo can be bought in the Playstation store, as well as the x-box live arcade respectively, for a believe a meager $15 [possibly $10][either way its worth it!]. whats best about this game is you wont find another game like it. its hard to explain what it is that...
Moody and satisfying

I just finished LIMBO and I was just blown away from start to finish. I went in expecting a solid puzzle/platformer and was rewarded with so much more, time after time. I will start off with what I did not like about the game. The only thing I can come up with is the length of it. I'm not one that...

Take gore scare and horror put it in a never ending chain(literally) and you get limbo!
A Beautiful Nightmare
on August 27, 2010 at 07:53 PM
Its not like me to give a XLBA game a very high score, but once I purchased Limbo and booted the game up, I knew my perception of these types of games was about to change. Limbo, like my title states, is a beautiful nightmare. Your character, a mysterious young boy who is nothing more than a black figure...
Limbo. A World Unlike Any Other.
on August 27, 2010 at 03:57 PM
Never before has a XBOX Live Arcade title impressed me as much as Limbo. This game offers a unique experience that can only be realized through playing the game for yourself. Because of the absence of dialog and story, players are unknowingly put into the shoes of this little boy. After taking his first...
Limbo Review: A Surreal, Ingenious Adventure
on August 24, 2010 at 04:04 PM
Limbo is another refreshing take on the puzzle genre, like Portal and Braid before it. While I would not put Limbo right up next to those two games in terms of overall innovation and inspiration, Limbo is definitely one of the most interesting, and certainly the most beautiful Xbox Live Arcade game I...
Stuck in Purgatory: LIMBO review
on August 23, 2010 at 11:10 PM
Limbo or Purgatory is a Catholic belief that between Heaven and Hell there is a place for the lost and for those who were neither good nor bad. That is where the XBLA exclusive puzzle game Limbo takes you (maybe). You play a boy who awakes in a forest, begins walking around and discovers that this is...
This is it: LIMBO
on August 19, 2010 at 09:42 PM
All I have to say is: "Wow". I have been playing this game since it's release this summer, and I greatly respect it. One thing I personally enjoy about this instant classic is it's lack of tutorial; you are dropped off in a forest with NOTHING. I love that. The majority of the game...
All around great game
on August 17, 2010 at 10:25 PM
I was hesitant to download this game at first simply because it seemed bland and colorless, literally. However, color doesn't need to be present to make this game outstanding. It got frustrating at times, although I can chalk that up to personal impatience, but the game is solid. I would highly recommend...

I'm not generally a platformer kind of guy but this game was brilliant! The creepy yet beautiful atmosphere, the confusing yet undeniable plot, and the strange and unexplained ending all made me happy inside.
A Thrilling Achievement (spoilers!)
on August 14, 2010 at 01:40 AM
I rarely download Xbox Live Arcade games. Most of the time, I don't hear about the great ones. Sometimes, I just don't want to spend the money on a game so short in length or small in scope. Thankfully for GameInformer's review, I was able to find this game and download almost as soon as...
Limbo Review: Playing with Death
on August 10, 2010 at 03:21 PM
Breaking the water of this year’s Summer of Arcade is Limbo , a game about childhood, survival and death. Although the concept and gameplay don’t exactly scream, “Summer fun for everyone!” the game is hauntingly gorgeous, provocative and deserves its place in the limelight of...

From the moment the boy opened his eyes and startled me, I was engrossed in this beautiful and challenging game. I am dreading, and yet excited, to try and play through to get the 'No Point in Dying' achievement. Outstanding game and recommend giving it a try!
Limbo: A good but short ride.
on July 21, 2010 at 07:01 PM
Limbo's greatest strengths are its haunting atmosphere and clever physics based puzzles. The game really does a good job of pulling you into its bleak world, but it is a fairly short journey with no real climax. My first playthrough took me a little less than three hours and I felt a little cheated...
