The game is amazing, great atmosphere, simple story or that's what it seems like at first, creepy which is definitely a plus and of course fun, the puzzles are easy and the gameplay is pretty good. The game was an awesome experience.

First off, props for telling a compelling story using the medium's strengths and keeping at least some things open to interpretation. LIMBO is kind of a modern Another World/Shadow of the Beast type of thing, only more forgiving. The PC version unfortunately has like a .3 second delay in the controls, making it quite frustrating to play when adding the (mostly) trial & error design of the game into the equation. The pacing also suffers a bit during the latter half, where the game focuses more on block pushing and gravity control puzzles and where checkpoints are a bit further in-between (not so in action heavy parts, a minus for me). There's replay value in collecting hidden eggs here and there, but the bonus stage that this unlocks isn't worth it.

Score: 7.0 (Good!)

Good thing that there are infinite continues and generous checkpoints in "Limbo", a macabre 2D platformer with a little lost boy in the woods - because the controls are awefully unresponsive and you're gonna die a lot. Especially the jumping: more often than not, you unintentionally jump right after climbing up a ledge, which messes up your timing. The black & white visuals and eery atmosphere are fairly sweet - simple, yet unique & distinctive. The game has little cutscenes and less hand-holding (big +), but some of these physics-based puzzles are kinda stupid, imho; to balance it out, others were rather smart. It lacks replayability and I still can't decide whether it's a good or bad thing that there's barely any music. Seriously.

Score: 8.0 (Great!)

Limbo is just shy away from being a superb game. It starts off brilliantly, with great atmosphere, simple puzzles and platforming. Later on it, as if there had to be some kind of a trade off, it loses the atmosphere and (little as it was) storytelling to gain complexity in the gameplay department. I'm not too fond of the ''trade off'', since Limbo as a platformer needs some serious tweaking, although saying that it's a great puzzle game.
Pros: Great puzzles, awesome secret level, unique art style
Cons: Troublesome controlling can lead to some needlessly aggravating sequences, barely any traces of a story(telling), the art style can be tiring on the eyes, if only there was more exploration

Score: 6.0 (Not bad!)

Although many people have claimed the art style is the main selling point for Limbo, it was the continually evolving and innovative gameplay which made me love this game. It contains a fantastic combination of puzzles and platforming, creating segments that you'll need to use your head, and others where you'll need to react quickly. The game may only be 4 hours, but those are 4 hours of awesomeness!

Score: 8.0 (Great!)
