One of the Most Creative Platformers I Have Ever Played
Limbo is one of the most iconic games in the indie scene. And for good reason. Limbo is an excellent and very interesting platformer.
Along with excellent and interesting, Limbo is weird, difficult, grey, and much more. The game is quite easy at first, you'll be breezing through the puzzles. But then, the game gets extremely difficult. Depending on your age, it might even get so difficult that you'll just want to quit. While I think that this game is appropriate for most 10-year-olds and older, I think that this game might be too challenging for anyone under the age of 13. The good thing about the puzzles is that they never feel old. Every puzzle incorporates a new, creative mechanic or adds onto an existing one.
A lot of people rip on this game for its length, but I disagree. While this game only has about 3-5 hours of content in it, I think the depth and creativity of the puzzles make up for it.
I do not think that this game is as inappropriate as CSM is making it out to be. There is no sexual or language content (in fact, there aren't any spoken words, at all). The only the thing they have to complain about is the violence, and there honestly isn't even that much of it. If you mess up during the puzzles, your character gets decapitated. But no blood is seen since the game is completely grey. There is one scene where you have to rip off a spider's leg, but the game's art style is done in such a way where it isn't gory.
Overall, this is a great game that I had a wonderful time playing. While it stumped me sometimes, I eventually got my way through it. I recommend Limbo to fans of dark-feeling games and indie games. Particularly indie platformers.
