Games review: Limbo

£10.20 (1200 MS points)

Format Xbox Live Arcade

Limbo, the edge of hell itself, proves a lonely setting for an adventure in which a boy searches for his sister. Limbo is a side-scrolling adventure that recalls the classic Another World, a title dripping in atmosphere and originality. Limbo’s beautiful visuals, elegant animation and haunting colour scheme create a feeling of claustrophobia that pervades every action as you vie against hazardous landscapes and hostile natives. Expect to die often, but consider each death a lesson learnt, as you plod onwards in a truly affecting title.
