This is a great game while it lasts. It was super fun to beat it with zero deaths. The hidden eggs are all really cool as well. I love the atmosphere of this game.90SilentSputnik
A incredible innovative platform game. I really got scary in certain moments of the game, and puzzles are hell of a challenge. But sometimes, the game mechanics are imprecise…100SilverMan
Thoroughly enjoyed this game. There hasn’t been a game in black in white that I really love that I can truly remember. The gameplay was difficult but rewarding, and who can forget that spider? Scary!80rmpg48110
Innovation at its best. Top notch gameplay feel. Amazing sound and visuals. Mastered ambiance. Anyone who cannot appreciate this game’s genius is simply blind.90colindesu
One of the most visually impressive games ever. It’s crazy to think that something in black and white could be so fascinating! Definitely recommended for those skeptical on the best XBLA has to offer.100freestar76
Dark, disturbing, yet eerily beautiful, Limbo is a world that deserves to be explored.100Joystiq
It might not have the length or volume of content that other excellent titles like Mass Effect 2 or Red Dead Redemption have, but pound for pound, Limbo is the best game I have played all year.100Gamer Limit
Limbo is as close to perfect at what it does as a game can get. It’s artistic without being pompous, difficult without being cheap, and violent without being gratuitous. It gets everything just right.100Destructoid
Limbo is a must-play game for anyone looking for a unique and thrilling experience. Its incredible visuals, intense atmosphere, and clever puzzles make it an unforgettable journey.100GamesRadar+
Limbo is genius. Freaky, weird genius. Disturbing, uncomfortable genius.100The Escapist

I tried it for about 5-10 minutes. I got stuck. I think it deserves a 3 or a 4.30Empyrea
This game is an excellent side scroller. It was a great buy and the price was worth it. A highly enjoyable experience.70theonelog
i dont usually like side scrollers at all but this was ok game not bad for an indie title60neomoonsevin
I don’t understand the high rating of this game. It’s boring, repetitive, the puzzles are ok at best and it’s way to short to be enjoyable. For me it’s way overated.30GTherion
A good unique game, a bit short though.70wesker2012
