    Limbo remains a brilliantly moody and expertly poised platform-puzzler a full eight years on from its original release. It might be a little stark, but it's dense with ingenious physics puzzles and weighty platforming challenges. It's the perfect cut-price companion piece to Inside, and a brilliant game in its own right.

    Rarely have I played a game (multiple times on various platforms, I might add) that so thoroughly nails the atmosphere.

    Eight years later, Limbo is still a great game to play.

    Limbo is certainly worth your time, but whether it’s worth the price is a point for somewhat serious debate.

    Limbo is an artwork made video game, which makes us travel between heaven and hell thanks to its peculiar audiovisual style and some ingenious and challenging puzzles. It’s really a pity that it’s so short, because the experience leaves a great taste in our mouths that leaves us asking for more hours of play.

    Limbo is probably the perfect dark, side scrolling puzzle-platformer.

    Whether you end up enjoying your brief journey through the world of Limbo will be subjective. It’s a akin to an expressionist painting, for some it will come across as beautiful experience greater than what you can see, while for the rest it may just seem boring and relying too heavily on artistic impression. I fall somewhere in the middle, I enjoyed the experience but as a video game, it was just a bit too simple for me.

Now the story is short being 3-4 hours, but the experience you get is some of the best on switch. I have played this game on IOS, XBOX 360, and WINDOWS 10 but this is the best one yet! The controls are great, the way they display it is something to be framed, and the ending leaves you questioning and theorizing. This is a must have for Switch owners!
