I recently finished LIMBO, so I figured I would do a review.

I think I'll record some walkthroughs soon, too.

Pros:
Has a demo (you can try it out before buying it).
Really awesome artistry. The whole game is a work of art.
Super interesting puzzles. They are difficult, but not overly frustrating. (No hidden levers or things like that.)
Engrossing.
Good story.

Cons:
Really short. I beat it in 3 hours, even though I payed $9.99 for it.
Low replay value is low. Once you know how to do the puzzles, that's it.

Conclusion:
This is a great platform puzzler. If you enjoy that genre, definitely get this game. But wait for it to go on sale. The price is a little high for a three hour game.

Agreed. It is a great game to kill some time. I found it to start really creepy and innovative but it tapered off to be a more standard plat-former. Luckily, I got my copy in the Indie Bundle so it worked out to be around $2.00 for me.

Same here. I wouldn't have bought it at full price, but I think it was a great buy for the amount of money I did spend on it.

I'm sure it will go on sale during the summer sale. Just check every day.
