Tenebroso. Inquietante. Oscuro. Tre aggettivi che legano alla grande con questo piccolo capolavoro chiamato LIMBO. Un gioco dallo stile grafico particolare e unico, così come il gameplay. Complessivamente abbastanza complesso, serve un attimo per rendersi conto di ciò che ci circonda, non è immediato ed è questo il bello, bisogna ragionare per arrivare a fine gioco. Un gioco davvero emozionante. Una pecca? Forse la durata che, senza mai morire, si aggira intorno all'ora e qualche minuto. Ma come potete vedere, io ci ho giocato ben più di 14 ore quindi la longevità è soggettiva.

Poi completare tutti e 13 gli obiettivi, beh, soddisfazione immensa.
Titolo consigliatissimo, soldi ben spesi.

LIMBO ha sicuramente un estetica affascinante e tratta una tematica interessante e diversa dal solito. Una specie di favola cruda e oscura. Da questi punti di vista è sicuramente un opera eccezionale.
Ma quando si passa al gameplay le cose peggiorano. I comandi non sono molto responsivi, ma il nostro avatar è un bambino e quindi la cosa mi può stare bene. Però gli enigmi, che sono il fulcro del gameplay del titolo e che ho visto incensare in molte recensioni, si sono rivelati essere nella maggior parte dei casi a tempo o caratterizzati da una forte componenete trial and error (ovvero, la morte è necessaria per comprendere l'enigma). Immagino che questo genere di puzzle abbia i suoi fan, ma non è roba per me, tanto che non ho neppure concluso il gioco sebbene la sua durata sia esigua (credo attorno alle 5 ore).
Mi trovo quindi a sconsigliarlo a meno che non si apprezzi il tipo di sfida proprosta o ci si faccia catturare appieno dall'atmosfera.

Finito, premetto che ho fatto una sola Run, ma non credo me ne servano altre per capire la morale del Titolo. Vediamo se Vale la Pena Actuistarlo.

COMPRALO PERCHE:
-Graficamente Lo Stile Luce e Oscurità fa il suo effetto rendendolo anche utili in termini di Gameplay...molto buona la fisica dei personaggi (ovviamente nei titoli in 2D è più facile programmare questo componente)
-Il Gameplay è Minimale ma al tempo stesso propone enigmi geniali e brillanti, seppur risolvibili da tutti (a parte saltare o afferrare non si può fare altro) rendendo l'esperienza mai noiosa e con un suo perchè
-La Storia è per certi versi parecchio scontata, ma fa riflettere sul viaggio che sta compiendo il personaggio in questo mondo oscuro

LASCIALO A STEAM:
-Il comparto Sonoro è Minimale, non che sia propriamente un difetto ma una miglior cura avrebbe giovato all'opera
-La pecca più grave è la Longevità....vedete le mie ore? Sono esattamente quelle che servono per completarlo, con una seconda Run prenderete anche tutti gli achievement, ma anche con questo, la durata è davvero minimale

Un gioco per tutti, vi affezionerete al personaggio nel corso dell'avventura grazie anche alla location del titolo.
Il prezzo deve essere solo scontato però

Forse unico nel suo genere! Limbo è un platform 2D ad enigmi, con uno stile grafico in bianco e nero che trasmette angoscia e timore per questo viaggio nel Limbo.
Dura poco ma costa poco, gli enigmi non sono per niente semplici, l'atmosfera è emozionante e terrificante, è quasi come se alcuni dei vostri incubi prendessero forma, e vi troverete costretti ad affrontarli per proseguire.
Assolutamente consigliato!

Recensione completa @ http://www.nrsgamers.it/recensione-limbo-delicatezza-monocromatica-anche-su-android/
Limbo continua ad essere una gemma dell’intero panorama videoludico-narrativo, a dispetto degli anni che passano. Lo stile visivo adottato permette al titolo di invecchiare divinamente, con atmosfere che continuano a tenere in tensione con grande maestria. Se non avete ancora provato il titolo in questione non possiamo che raccomandarvi di recuperarlo al più presto: se amate i platform o le storie dalla forte componente allegorica Limbo è un titolo imperdibile.

+ Stile visivo potente e trascinante
+ Produzione elegante e molto raffinata
+ Emotivamente coinvolgente
+ Comparto ludico appagante

- Non molto longevo

Uno dei giochi più particolari a cui abbia giocato. Tutto in bianco e nero e senza alcuna parola pronunciata. Veramente consigliato a chi cerca qualcosa di diverso.
L'ideale sarebbe giocarlo tutto d'un fiato, in quanto la longevità non è elevata.

When i finished this game I just sat and thought about how i just played a game with zero talking, commentary, subtitles, and music. Zero background on the plot. Zero idea of any of the characters names.

Yet I had more fun and got more attached to the characters than most games that have all of that.

10/10

A game as intuitive and creative as it is cold, lonely, and bleak. The young boy's journey through the darkness and the many threats hidden throughout it is a breathtaking experience. Beautiful artwork and a physics system that lends itself very well to the maze of masterfully crafted puzzles makes every mistake a brutal consequence, but encourages a learning attitude. A near perfect, and emotionally moving game I would play again in a heartbeat. 4.5/5

Skip along through the nightmare land
To the beat of the Limbo band
Get it goin, the water flowin’
And by the way, ya can’t swim.

All the people ya meet are rude
Plus the spider who thinks you’re food
Do whatever, you’re here forever
In short it feels a bit grim.

Limbo! Limbo!
Come get stuck in Limbo!
Limbo! Limbo!
No one can hear you cry.

It's your common platformer puzzle game... made by satan.
Honestly, this game was a little bit of a disappointment when it comes to the "puzzles", I found them quite easy, I saw a lot of hype a few years ago about this game so I thought it was pretty hard.
Also the story is short, it only took me 3 hours to beat it, and an extra hour to look for a couple of achievements..
On the other hand, though, this game is rather unique, both in terms of art and story, which makes this game really worth playing, just not worth the 10€ it costs.
I'd suggest you to buy this game when it's on sale (Like I did) because 3/4 hours of gameplay is not worth 10€. (I'm a cheapskate, I know.)

Grim journey somewhere between the worlds.

It's about:
  • anxiety, tension, fear, darkness and macabre atmosphere;
  • jumping and solving puzzles.

Why you should play this:
  • you like horror games (try it even if you don't like horror games);
  • you like platformers and puzzles;
  • thoughtful level-design with hidden areas;
  • small details in level's enviroment, a lot of shades - game doesn't look simplistic due to using only 2 colors;
  • great sound effects;
  • tricky, but simple puzzles.

Why you may not like it
  • it's difficult to make yourself start to play - game looks too melancholy;
  • black-white design sometimes does not allow to define where's active object and where's just a scenery;
  • despite the fact that puzzles are mostly simple you can stick because it's not always clear what the puzzle is - it's like cracking unfinished riddle.

Lack of colours, no dialogs, no intro or outro, no word at all and, yet, such unbeleivable level of expression.

Limbo shows that it doesn’t take a massive budget, or massive explosions, or gpu melting 3D visuals to make an amazing gaming experience. The game is actually about as bare bones as it gets when it comes to both game mechanics and visuals yet it’s the simplicity that makes the game a truly amazing gaming experience. Limbo is a 2D puzzle platformer game that puts you in control of a silent young boy who finds himself in a dark, mysterious, incredibly dangerous, forest where everyone and everything is out to get him.

The game boasts a gorgeous black and white atmospheric art style that perfectly portrays the emotion filled nightmare of a world that you have been placed in. The eerie sounds pair perfectly with the creepy visuals to completely immerse in in the beautifully designed levels. The game makes sure not to distract you from the gorgeous simplicity, as there are no interrupting cut scenes, dialogue, HUD, or tutorial, from start to finish the game is one seamless experience.

As you control the young boy you are limited to simply ‘jump’ and pushing or pulling of various objects, so to say you’re defenseless against the creepy crawlers that lurk in the dark would be an understatement. You must use your wits and react quickly to out maneuver and outsmart the faster, stronger enemies who wait around every corner. The controls are tight and precise and the physics are realistic, there won’t come a time when you die from missing a jump and feel like you were robbed.

The puzzles get progressively harder and harder throughout the game, however there was only one time that I became too frustrated with the game and had to take a short break. The game isn’t difficult per se, however you will die a lot, the game will kill you with what are seemingly cheap deaths just for the sake of killing you, but each death is meant as a learning experience, and you won’t be too badly punished as the game re-spawns you within feet from where you died. This type of “trial by error” gameplay teaches you how the environment around you responds to your actions without having to include an obnoxious, intrusive tutorial to hold your hand through the game.

Overall the game is relatively short and shouldn’t take any longer than 3-4 hours to complete from start to finish. But don’t let the short play time discourage you from picking up this absolute gem of a game or you could easily miss out on one of the finest platforming experiences available on PC.

The beauty and simplicity of the game is what makes Limbo feel so refreshing, the beautiful art style and magnificently eerie environment will completely immerse you in this demented, mysterious, world. The controls are spot on and the puzzles are challenging enough that you will feel accomplished when you complete one. Limbo is a seamless masterpiece from start to finish with the only downside being that you’ll keep craving more.

Let's begin this review with a spoiler.... 'YOUR GOING TO DIE!!!'

Also let me next begin to decalre to all those that have played this game and have an opinion as to it's meaning, you are all WRONG!

Sorry it had to be said, i'm merely trumping the hundreds of opinions circulating around as to the games true meaning with each one of them contradicting the opionions of the one before. So I thought i might as well get in on the act. It's understandable really why there are so many idea's floating around, as the game was purposefully designed to be vague. Other than the word 'Hotel', no other written or spoken word is mentioned in the entire game. The game and it's contributing story is entirely acted out in visuals and it's many, many, many death scenes.

This has even led many gamers to dismiss that there is any hidden meaning at all behind this game and that it is just a game, but for those that have done a bit of research on the matter and watched some interviews, will no doubt soon discover that the Lead Developer behind this game Jensen openly admits that there was a clear indistinct meaning behind all the inspirations discovered in the game and was kind of personally shocked how close the fans had got to that original concept. He has never admitted openly that anyone has it correct and now with all the millions of guess framework layed out, it is very unlikely that he will ever do so, as that is a further added attraction to the game.

So let me personally dispell a few of the erroneous down right wrong idea's floating around and give you some more things to think about. Personally I don't think this information will ruin anything, but rather enhance the beauty of this game for you.

The biggest clue to the game is it's title 'LIMBO'. Limbo is a doctrinal place made up by the Catholic Church. There is no mention of it in the Bible, yet there are many rules about it as set out by the Churches traditional theology. Basically in a nutshell it is a waiting place which some people go to before they are called into Heaven or Hell.

The other things that you need to keep in mind is that there are several different Limbo's. There is the Limbo of the patriarchs (Abraham, Moses etc) and Limbo of Infants. This game's main character is a young un-named boy who for the purpose of this review we will call him 'Mr Bright Eyes' and his sister. There are several other children in this Limbo too. So evidently common sense dictates that we are in the Limbo for infants.

Do all children go to Limbo? No... Only those that are not baptised. Evidently Mr Bright Eyes and his sister, neither of them are baptised. You also have to be dead to enter into Limbo, comatose states do not count as Limbo.

The next big clue about this game is when it was released which was in 2010. For several years just prior to this there was quite a lot of hot debate as to the teaching of this doctrine and the need of some clarification on it. One of the biggest questions raised which caused a great ruckus was if it was possible to be 'tested' while in Limbo?

Eventually after many arguements back and forth it was determined that it was possible to be tested within Limbo and from there your fate could be further decided. Let me give you a hypothetical situation where testing in Limbo might be required....

There is a young boy who for one reason or another gets angry and pushes his sister out of a tree house the fall which basically nearly kills her/ or does in fact kill her. He then feels remorse for what he has done and goes off to find help. On his way he is bitten by a poisonous spider. As the kid continues in his frantic search for help, the poison rushes through his system and kills him before he is able to get any help. In this following hypothetical situation the boy would be tested in Limbo as to his sincerity.

Sounds an awful lot like the game doesn't it...

One more thing you need to keep in mind about Limbo is that two people can have a completely different experience in exactly the same place, at exactly the same time. For instance a Cruel boy in Limbo will not have the same experience as a sweet girl does have in Limbo. The Catholic church has never really defined how this is possible other than stating that there must be some type of 'barriers' in Limbo.

So while Mr Bright Eyes gets to play with saw blades and brain bugs, his sister gets to play with butterflies and all things sweet. Therefore any crashing at the end of the game could be attributed to breaking through that barrier which seperates a good kid from a bad kid. Since both brother and sister are in Limbo they are both dead, but which one died first? It seems little sis did. He is aware of her and where she is and is looking for her evidently he already knows she is dead, while on the contrary little sis has no idea that her brother is in limbo too and is startled when she eventually finds this out.

It is a bittersweet game from start to finish and though it only takes 55 minutes in a perfect run or thereabouts, with the constant deaths and respawn system you will be at it for days. As you journey through it, concentrated on the backgrounds and the places that you are and think about the hidden meaning. It is quite fun to do so. Did Mr Bright Eyes get out of limbo and enter heaven. Well it all depends on how much money his parents gave to the church though. Maybe we will find out in Limbo 2...

Limbo is a dark, slightly twisted 2D side scrolling puzzle game with stunning artwork, and a fantastic atmosphere. Despite being a relatively short game (if you know how to do all the puzzles), Limbo still provides a incredible dark and challenging experience as you move through the story trying not be squashed, stabbed or cut in half.

Pros:
+ Stunning black and white artwork
+ Refined, smooth and simple controls
+ Dark and interesting puzzles
+ Fantastic dark and eerie atmosphere
+ Hidden eggs to explore and find
+ Achievements
+ Full controller support, perfect for Big Picture Mode

Cons:
- A fairly short game
- Limited replayablility as you'll know how to complete the puzzles (will always be a good game to come back to though)

My Score: 9/10
