Limbo is a gripping blend of stark, haunting landscapes, bizarre characters and unsettling sounds. With clever puzzle design, an intriguing narrative and an excellent touch-screen control system, it’s as rewarding to play as it is interesting to look at and listen to.
Everything about this game is perfect. The level of difficulty is just the right balance between frustration and rewarding, there’s no repetitive tasks every little segment is its own unique challenge that is different enough from the last that you need to stop and think about how to solve it and what exactly it is that needs solving. You’re never forced to restart the task too far back and so you don’t find yourself repeating huge chunks of game play to get get back to the same point. The graphics are simple yet beautiful and totally Immersive. The controls are intuitive and easy to work out. My only minor complaint was that the ending was not as satisfying as I’d hoped. It’s slightly confusing and doesn’t conclude or explain much at all... but then that didn’t make it any less fun to play.
Great game but bad ending
I loved this game. It is very fun in a similar way to “Inside,” which is another game by Playdead games, which I would very much recommend if you have not played it yet. However, I think the controls can be frustrating at times and the ending is quite disappointing, especially the secret ending. Playdead always seems to deliver amazing games, but the only thing I would say they could improve on are their endings - a lot. After playing the rest of the game - which is so good- you just feel like “oh is that it” at the end because the ending is so bland. They need to make the ending just as imaginative as the rest of the game.
