    A haunting puzzler brimming with ideas, Limbo is easily the platform's greatest successor to Braid. [Oct 2010, p.118]
  2. Limbo is genius. Freaky, weird genius. Disturbing, uncomfortable genius.
  3. This makes the entire four hours seem like a 2D version of Portal, and that's a welcome experience on XBLA.
  4. Limbo is one of the best XBLA ever created. A simple gameplay meets a complex level design, for an instant classic with a terrific art direction.
  5. If you're looking for a game that will stick with you-and maybe even pop up in your nightmares- LIMBO is waiting to consume you.
  6. Limbo is a fine example of how you can create a masterpiece, yet sell it through the Xbox Live arcade at a budget price. It may not be the longest game, but to capture the imagination of any player is something that is a rarity in gaming.
  7. Limbo has brilliant details and some intelligent puzzles, but it has many things that will end up being boring as they're the same as always.

    Without doubt one of the most beautiful games I have ever played, Limbo blurs the lines between video games and art. The puzzles are reallyWithout doubt one of the most beautiful games I have ever played, Limbo blurs the lines between video games and art. The puzzles are really devious too! But, way too short. I'm hoping they will create another Limbo game, as there are so many ideas here i'm sure they can greatly expand on this great little game. Expand

    Unique and challenging, drags you into an obscure world and doesn't let go. I havn't enjoyed exploring such a great environment since ShadowUnique and challenging, drags you into an obscure world and doesn't let go. I havn't enjoyed exploring such a great environment since Shadow of the Colossus and the only let down is the length at 4-5 hours. Highly recommended. Expand

    The story sets up its intriguing mystique perfectly, but never really delivers on or even tries to make sense of the plot - nevertheless, theThe story sets up its intriguing mystique perfectly, but never really delivers on or even tries to make sense of the plot - nevertheless, the game comes through with awesomely clever physics-based puzzle design, great sound design and a load of super-unique visual and aural atmosphere! Definitely worth replaying, too. Expand

Le jeu José Bové, bio, le jeu d'auteur, c'est "de l'art" tu comprends. En l'occurrence, de la 2D comme on en faisait en 1990 ou 1985 (?) en 2 couleurs : noir et blanc. Et gris aussi, ça fait 3. Pong dans les cordes ! (1972).

    Donc je saute, j'active des trucs et je passe à la suite : j'active un machin, je saute. Et je coure aussi hihihi. Regarde mon petit bonhomme avec ses yeux qui brillent, il est trop mignon. Je sais même pas pourquoi je joue à une merde pareille ?... ah oui c'est "hype" et branchouillemékouilles. C'est "in", c'est "tendance". Et je joue à ce truc sur une console à 300 ou 400 balles et je peux même y jouer sur mon PC de la mort à 2000 balles. Trop bien, trop frais.
