Summary

40% substance, 60% style, Limbo is an engrossing puzzle game and one of the highlights of PSN games this year.

We like

  • Brilliant Tim Burton-like art style
  • Great audio work creates an eery atmosphere
  • Lots of puzzle variety and challenge

We dislike

  • The unsatisfactory conclusion to the storyline
  • Trial and error approach can be frustrating

Limbo seems a little pricey at £9.99, for what amounts to a 5 hour campaign, but it's an immersive game that challenges you with some addictive puzzles and enriches you with its unique visual style. There aren't many games like Limbo around, and among the deluge of first-person shooters and big budget action adventures it's a breath of fresh air.
