IGN: Limbo Review

"Limbo is an incredible achievement. Very few games are as original, atmospheric, and consistently brilliant as Limbo. It belongs in everybody's collection. The journey may be over too quickly, but you will be entertained every minute. This is one of my favorite games ever." (Limbo, Xbox 360) 9.0/10

Looks like another very solid exclusive XBLA game.

LOL. A good game is a good game so no disagree from me but, the thing is that this will be on PSN in about 9-15 months. Isn't that the average time it takes an 360 "exclusive" to go on PSN? Hehehe.......

Very solid looking game...just may have to get it!
Anon1974  +   1713d ago
I think I'll pick this one up as well.
I like everything's I've read about this game so far. I hadn't even heard of it until it launched.

Might have to fire up the ole Xbox and check this one out.

Does anybody know why this game isn't on PSN or PC? Have the devs said why it's only on XBL?
psman012  +   1713d ago
It WAS announced for PS3 and PC, but then cancelled? Something like that. Anyways, we NEED this on PS3!!
peeps  +   1713d ago
I think it's a small team etc. Off the top of my head i think this as an idea that spawned years ago and they were finally able to create this game. Probably could only afford to develop for a single platform atm
Biggest  +   1713d ago
Because XBL is the only place they felt deserved Limbo! /s

I am one of the jealous guys that wish this game was available for at least the PC. Maybe it'll make an appearance in pirated form. And it wasn't announced for PC/PS3. The ESRB rated it, but when the devs found out they promptly released a statement saying it would not be released this time around. They also requested the ESRB to remove the ratings.

I know the REAL reason why is was only on the 360
The reason it was only on the Xbox 360 is because it started off as an Indie Xbox Live game but then became a full Xbox Live Arcade game once Microsoft saw how great it was looking (Microsoft then snatched the rights to it when it when it became a full XBLA game). The PlayStation 3 doesn't have it's own equivalent version of the Indie Arcade where anyone can create a game and add it to the marketplace if they want to and that's why they were unable to add it to PSN or the PC.

Its a shame though because I bet it would have sold well on all platforms and we could have also avoided all this rampant jealously from PlayStation fanboys. Every console has their own great exclusives. There is no need to flip out whenever one of them isn't on your favorite console. You guys really need to get a life.

Ugh, I can't believe I agree with Omega(fanboy) but I'm definitely getting this game.
Jinxstar  +   1713d ago
I actually agree with you omega on this one. The imagery and music are pure delight. I just saw the Gametrailers review and it looks very cool. The only downfall I can see is the "pay to play" ratio as they said. "15$ for a 3 hour game with subsequent play troughs being just over an hour" However once it drops to 10$ I would say thats a steal. One of those games that kinda makes me wish I had a 360, Oh well... Not a big loss though imo. Sad to say it's the only 360 exclusive this year I actually want to play so far...
Darkstorn  +   1713d ago
Hope this comes to PSN.
inception123  +   1712d ago
it is kinda sad that the best 360 game in the past 2 years is a xbla game. well at least you got something to play and can dust off your 360s.

Looks like a great game, but maybe a bit pricey... 800 Microsoft space bucks would sell it to me.
Wizziokid  +   1713d ago
Looks very nice, I'll have to try it out
but I'm still torn between this and Detahspank!

XBLA titles seem to be getting better.
Cheeseknight28  +   1713d ago
I wasn't aware that they needed to get better. If there's one thing that I can always use to justify a 360 purchase it's arcade games. The exclusive ones tend to be fantastic (Shadow Complex, Trials HD, Castle Crashers (For now), Geometry Wars 2, etc).
Fanb0y  +   1712d ago
Last years' were better.
NeutralGamer  +   1712d ago
You forgot Braid... Just because its not an exclusive its really worth mentioning..
table  +   1713d ago
I hope this game comes to psn or steam like braid did.
table  +   1713d ago
I hope this game stays exclusive to xbox live so that less people can play it
UnSelf  +   1713d ago
thats what they wanna hear
Eamon  +   1713d ago
Yeah, I'd definitely want this on Steam.

But it's made by Microsoft Game Studios, so I doubt it...
AliTheBrit19  +   1713d ago
Want. Want. Want.
BeaArthur  +   1713d ago
I've never been big into the arcade games but this one does sound really good.
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1713d ago
Im excited to play this game
I love sidescrollers and this game looks amazing. Its challenging and really unique.

I love that consoles this gen(and steam on PC) have made smaller games like this possible.

gotta get some more points for this awesome looking game.
Acquiescence  +   1713d ago
I knew the reviews would be positive..
I'd have never guessed they would be THIS positive though. I'm seeing nothing but 9's everywhere.

I hope this comes to PSN.

This seems like a sort of game that would be exclusive to PSN, like Flower.

ElementX  +   1713d ago
Why does it seem like an exclusive PSN game, because it's original? Is Flower any good? I haven't played that yet.
Jinxstar  +   1713d ago
Yes It is good. Not hard or long or anything like that but it tells it's own story in a very unique way and is very relaxing. Not for everyone of course but for sure a buy in my book if you like the idea of videogames as art.

Going to be picking this up very soon. Maybe even tonight if i get the chance. Anybody hear of any news regarding Shadow Complex 2? I seriously can't wait for that game!
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1713d ago
I really wish for shadow complex 2 as well
I loved taht game and Im hoping to see info on SC2 soon.
gypsygib  +   1713d ago
XBLA is the only thing 360 does better than PS3; I buy more Arcade games than PSN games.

This game looks amazing. It's a shame it's on the one console I don't own... but I wouldn't doubt Steam will have this eventually at the very least.

Oh well, at least I'm all set to play Child of Eden and Lost in Shadow next year!

This game looks like exactly my type of thing. While it's not quite enough to get me to pay for repairs to my 360 (it would be if it was a full length game) it's definitely a game I'm gonna bug my 360 owning friend about buying so I can play it.

Plus, its free to download once done!

there are already levels in lbp that are like this it is probably lbp that inspired these guys.

Everything just have to give credit to a PS3 game?
