    Totally agree with you. This is the most simplest and lovely game ever played.

    I am pretty sure sure you won´t stop until you get the last episode.

    It should of been longer, it wasnt impossible. if anything, it could have a sequel or something.

    The game is great and really fun, but then you beat it and little need to keep playing. I would have liked a time trial mode for replay. I do love games like this though.

    Yes wololo, Limbo is one of the best Indie games i have ever played, and its extremely addicting. I still have no beat it though.

    I bought and played this game through (1 sitting, late at night into the morning) on my Xbox360 the very day it came out. I loved it. I hold this up to be one of the best Indie games around and as an example of what they can be.

  6. TheSpillmonkey says:

    Also, there was a plot, it was just a simple plot.
    You are separated from the girl. She is taken off.
    You are stuck in a nightmarish Limbo (it’s why it is called limbo). That is all the narration you need. Any direct narration, speech, or ham-fisted plot delivery would have taken away from the amazing ambiance that really takes you into this post-death shadow world where nothing is certain.

    The levels and atmosphere themselves

    (continued as I palmed enter)
    The levels and atmosphere themselves communicate everything you need to know (and everything that little boy knows) about this new existence.

    Freddy you are my hero ! I made a few of my friends buy this HB, and all they talk is the other games. I was really shocked by the quality of LIMBO, you call it puzzle, while there is more to it, somehow its also a bit “trickjumping” and action adventure like. I can’t play it for to long cause my boy always dies, and I feel sorry for it :P (well agree sometimes its funny :D)
    I love how the game is simple dark but still very accurate and great grafics, they make the game great. Its the only one still installed for now.

    Thx for the review, great to see people recognize this epic game. (haven’t played it out yet ;))

    Why cant he port it to PSP/Vita, it looks good and the gameplay is nice =)

    Wow thanks for the heads up wololo. I definately would’ve missed the humble bundle opportunity. I LOVE Limbo! My daughter hates it though, but we can work around that lol

    I really like this game. I finished it in 2 days. :D Terrific puzzles, simplicity & great atmosphere. Honestly, this little game is 100times better compared to the big boring & overrated games like Assassin’s Creed series.
