It’s been a few weeks now since I’ve played Limbo. I snagged it pretty soon after it became available on the PlayStation Store as its reputation preceded it. It is of course the same game that was released on Xbox Live Arcade last year.
If you had to think of a video game that could be called art, then it would have to be Limbo. For a game that’s relatively short, with basic gameplay at its heart, it makes a big impact. The music, the Noir visuals, and the puzzles all add up to a great little game. In other words, it’s gameplay done right!
I’ve since moved on to playing some of the bigger releases this year such as DiRT 3 and L.A. Noire but Limbo still sticks in my mind as a small game with big presence. It is a platform/puzzle game cut to its bare essentials, but with such high-impact visuals.
I’m not going to go on about this game anymore as I’m already treading on familiar ground here. I just needed to get a shout out for this game, mainly for PS3 owners who like myself, will not have had the fortune of playing it last year. A must buy!
