Review | Limbo



I guess I can be quite short about this game: it's good (maybe even perfect, but I won't put that much weight on it). Altough it's short on explenation on how things work, say no instruction. It's quite entertaining for a couple of hours ! The puzzles aren't very difficult. However some people may need an overnight sleep to figure out what the solution for an obstacle is. Even I peeked once in a Walktrough when I was in the early stages of the game. You have to fullfill this game with alot of trial-and-error aproaches. Which isn't bad because the game has many save points and put's you back before it went wrong. You can't skip any obstacle though and there is most of time (if not always) only one solution to survive another attack from a large spider ! You also need to have some patience. So if you want to rush trough, go ahead, but you won't live long that way. The graphics are simple but it gives the game the right vibe. It's a dream world you have to escape from. For the people who saw the movie Inception: you know what Limbo is and what it can do...

I haven't finished the game yet. But I am sure going to do so. This game keeps me busy. And I can even run it on my laptop. It ain't that hard on my system...
