I would be, but it appears to be x360 exclusive as of now :/

I legit thought this was about limbo dancing :vlol:. Still, it looks good.

Doesn't teases me up. Sounds too boring with really slow platforming. Also, it has no colour, wich makes it even more boring being it all black and white! Looks way too much LBP for me!

Ahh, I just found out about it yesterday and I think it's a nice new game :p From what I've seen the puzzles do look tricky enough to make you like this game IMO. Too bad it's for XBox360 though. I guess there aren't any news that it will be released for PC and other consoles till now, right? :(

It actually looks kinda boring. Still, don't judge a book by it's cover I guess.

The fact that its currently a 360 exclusive means I'm not interested. Pity, it look intriguing.

Well, LittleBigPlanet was a PS3 exclusive. Now Limbo is a 360 exclusive. It's only fair :wve:.

It is amazing how smilies completely change the shape of a message when you really have an emotion that is different to that particular smilie. :mad:

Limbo actually looks quite intriguing although its exclusive apparently.
I'm not sure if its my type of game though TBH.

It looks quite good but according to Eurogamers review itīs only 3 hours long, and Iīm not paying 1200 points for that maybe I will buy it if it gets a special offer later.

IGN gave it a 9.0 (http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/objects/63756/limbo/videos/limbo_vdr_071610.html) & Gametrailers gave it a 8.8 (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/review-pod-limbo/701815?type=flv). I really want to play it but my HDD is running out of space. I'll download the trial when it's out and see if I like it enough to delete some DLC or other arcade titles of my HDD. :p

Has anyone played it yet? Sweet Jesus, I was on the edge of my seat when the giant spider came and attacked. I thought I was going to pass out. This game is awesome though :tmb:.

No Xbox Live exclusive.

I just got done playing the trial, this game is really good. The atmosphere is creepy, and the puzzles are great. I've jumped quite a few times, I am definitely going to get this first chance I get! :D

You think that's scary, wait until it reveals itself, see if you don't jump six feet. I got the picture from the website.

I bought it, but I haven't played past where the trial ends. What i did play was fun though. :D the gameplay is like a 2D black and white version of Crystal's TRs. :D :tmb:

i've never played that. But to me it reminds me of the platforming and puzzle solving of TR with all the pushing and pulling of crates to create platforms and cross terrain, rope swinging, sliding, jumping, etc..that plus the creepy atmosphere gives it kind of a TR-ish feel.

Perhaps it's just me, but the original Tomb Raider games are the last on my list of comparisons to Limbo.

Limbo is fantastic and I really enjoyed plaing it so far but now I'm stuck here:

http://www.abload.de/img/foto0007f54b.jpg (http://www.abload.de/image.php?img=foto0007f54b.jpg)

It's the part with the weird gravity. Once the guy steps onto the trigger tile the two crates get beamed up. The aim is to get at least one of them up to the ladder but as there's a long slope on the floor this is a very hard task and I have no idea how to progress.
I don't want to look for help on Youtube or in a Walkthrough as I don't want to get too much help. Maybe one of you guys could give me a tiny hint without revealing too much. :)

It mostly reminds me of Another World. It looks bloody fantastic. Why oh why is it an exclusive?:(

Try to move one of them up the slope behind the trigger platform ale while it's sliding down, try to move the other one somewhere...smart.

I played the demo the other day, and watched a bit more of the full game - and I have to say, I think it's an amazing game. Such incredible atmosphere. Brilliant little puzzles. Wonderful feel and great level of detail.

Reminded me a LOT of how Ico felt.

Too bad there isn't a PC version.......for now :whi:

I made it and even if it was a little bit short it was definitely worth the money and a nice little new experience with a superb atmosphere and great, clever puzzles.


Shouldn't be missed by any Xboxplayer :)

Now I just hope that there's any other Arcadetitle (apart from GoL) in this Summer of Arcade worth a Download. The waiting time until GoL is sooo long :)

First time around, you can complete the game in about 2 hours. But there are some collectables/achievements. I say, even though it's a short experience, it's a strong one, very strong, and absolutely worth the price.

Ok, Ill take your word on it since i only have 1210 and that was for GoL but I can get more points next week :D But If I dont like it (Even tho I LOVED the demo) I will be coming after you! :mis: :pi:

I'm really tempted by this game, heard a lot of good things about it. Love the style as well.

What are the puzzles like on it? Are they anything like the game "Braid"?

looks quite good I think, however due to the simple nature the game should have a long lifespan. I'm talking 100 hours on a playthrough, not the 6 hours that IGN said it had.

Well that's why the game is only about $10.

Who knows really, many XBL titles have been released on PSN anywhere from a week or two to a month.

This game is just...fantastic! :eek:

I havenīt completed the game yet, but I think I am very close to the end. I got stuck and decided to take a break from it (for those who have played it: Iīm near a sort of magnetic field with two small blocks and more stuff). :p

I had played the trial version earlier, but finally bought the full game today. I am happy I did, because itīs definitely worth the money. If you have played the trial version, let me tell you this: you have seen nothing yet! :D

I love the spooky atmosphere of the forest area and the better puzzles and brutal traps of the industrial/city area. Speaking of puzzles, they are great! Really cute and clever, some really need your full attention. And most of them are physics-based, which I just love! The lack of music (except for some moments, which makes it more special), the unique art style and especially the sound effects add to an amazing and unique experience. There doesnīt seem to be a story, itīs all in your head. The little boy doesnīt speak or interact with you in any way, but still you become fond of him and want to protect him.

If you like a game with good puzzles that require thinking and timing, brutal traps and deaths (although very cleverly īcoveredī by the black and white visuals, they are still really brutal!), a game that you canīt easily put down once you have started, this is the game for you. Donīt be fooled by the screenshots, this game is great. Get it! :D
