    Limbo, kind of meh

    Right off the bat they drop you in this world you are slowly revealing with natives and giant spiders. But very quickly does it change to a bland enviroments with clever and difficult puzzles. Do not get me wrong I enjoy the puzzles, solving them really does feel satisfying. But the game loses everything that made the first part of the game feel really cool. It was just boxes, ladders and saws. the world felt very bland to me, I soon found myself bored and no longer interested in this world I was intrigued about in the beginning. I originally thought maybe it was the difficult puzzles maybe frustrating me wanting to move on to the next big thing. But even when I was quickly flying threw everything with the easier parts, I just had no interest in continuing on. Finishing the game felt more of a chore than a enjoyable experience. I will maybe try again in another sit threw to see if maybe that will stick that time. But it sure as hell didn’t do it the first time. I am sure you have already read the length of the game and lack of re playability so I wont even bring it up. Besides to me if an experience is that good and stays with you, it would be worth it.

    I would like to say I do appreciate the art style of the game. It is very different from most titles out there and is down right beautiful.

    I will now finish off saying that I am not saying IGNs high review is wrong, just different. This is one of the few occasions where I find myself in the minority and understand most people absolutely love this game. But this time, this game is not for me. Funny enough is I am having a blast with Hydro Thunder which IGN gave it a 5.5 I believe. Remember people, a review is just one persons opinion.

      This little boy awakes in the darkness, what we see is just a shadow of his body, where is he? In Limbo. This game is beautiful in the eye, black and white, shades of grey. This small 2-D platform game, is about a boy in search of his sister, in this world of paranormal fluently created puzzles, that persistanly can leave you feeling like, is that really going to work?  What I enjoyed about the game the most was the fluency of the game, is something that you can start and actually play all the w...

         LIMBO is one of those games that’s going to be hard to review let alone talk about without treading the line of the “spoiler zone.” PlayDead has created a beautiful game in the same vein as Braid or the recent P.B. Winterbottom. The simplicity of the controls doesn’t hamper the challenge that waits in LIMBO; expect to have some interesting concepts thrown at you. With LIMBO, PlayDead has set out to create a game that would make them a staple in gamer’s minds, and the story that unfolds is ...
