Rarely have I played a game (multiple times on various platforms, I might add) that so thoroughly nails the atmosphere. And that Playdead did this because they pursued visuals, audio, and gameplay simultaneously and not as silos speaks volumes that this game holds up so damn well after eight years. LIMBO is perhaps the greatest example of video games as an art form I have ever played.
Limbo is a creative, interesting game. It looks cool and it’s simple in a good way, but it leaves the player wanting more, a lot more. However, If you’re looking for a creepy, quick adventure that you can play on your Nintendo Switch then I definitely recommend checking it out.
Whether you end up enjoying your brief journey through the world of Limbo will be subjective. It’s a akin to an expressionist painting, for some it will come across as beautiful experience greater than what you can see, while for the rest it may just seem boring and relying too heavily on artistic impression. I fall somewhere in the middle, I enjoyed the experience but as a video game, it was just a bit too simple for me.
