LIMBO began life in 2010 as a title on the Xbox Live Marketplace and was a massive success, becoming one of the best-selling games on Xbox Live and receiving extremely positive reviews from critics. Many PS3 owners were missing out on a lot, so it was brilliant when it came out on the PlayStation Store at the beginning of July this year. Is it the excellence that people claimed it was, or a huge disappointment? Unsurprisingly, it's the former. LIMBO is one of the best games available on the Store right now and can compete with other downloadable games such as Flower and Outland. It may be short, but you won't feel short-changed at all. If you haven't already got it, get . Read the complete review

On its release, Limbo was one of those games that had everyone talking. Released on the Playstation Network by an independent developer, it showed that there was still a market for smaller software studios to release their own stuff and that games did not have to be a sequel to be successful.

Limbo (PC) Most modern games are insubstantial shit. Take sand-box adventures for instance. Fun for all of a few seconds until you recognise playing pool is way more fun with real people, in a real bar, with real beer. Meaningless side-games only exist to detract from the fact that mindlessly running over people in stolen vehicles is dull and tedious in the long-term. The Sims; fun for all of a few seconds until you realise that earning real money, buying your own house and kitting it out with your own stuff is way more fun. Modern Warfare; amazing graphics that simply mask the bland, tedious level design suggesting most gamers are idiots that would somehow ... Read the complete review

Many big games these days just seem to be all extremely similar, with the same type of game play, just behind a different back drop. However, just a small look into smaller games can see how creative video gaming can really be. Limbo is one of those games. The story of Limbo is extremely simple, with you taking control of a nameless boy, who is searching for his sister. The story itself may as well be non-existant, as it is not really needed at all to enjoy the game. The design of the game is very interesting. Limbo is done in a monochrome black and white style, and everything seems to be as if it is in shadow (The boy, for example, is a completely black ... Read the complete review
