Download of the Week: Limbo is one of the best games on XBLA and it's going at a bargain price

Game: Limbo | Platform: 360 | Publisher: Microsoft | Developer: Playdead | Price: 600 MS Points

All our downloads are piped in with the lightning-quick Virgin Media 50Mb Broadband...

Limbo was one of the download highlights of last year. Hell, it's one of the most fascinating games to appear in a long while. A beautiful and darkly dreamy puzzle-platformer, it's the monochromatic fairytale of little boy journeying through, er, well, I'm not sure exactly where he's journeying through, but there's a forest and a city, oh, and a really good bit with a horrible creepy spider.

    Limbo is the best arcade game I have played! Haunting, terriying and beautiful, I love it!

    Anyone who does not get Limbo for 600 MS points is a moron. Excellent game that is well worth what they are asking for.

    Limbo is not very good as a game.

    I still don't know what to make of Limbo. Great concept. Great art. But I found the 'trial and death' approach got old. FAST. I stopped playing Tomb Raider: Underworld for the same reason. It suspends disbelief when you're dying every ten seconds.

    Un-suspends disbelief, I mean.

    Alright this is pretty funny. After stopping playing about 85% through when it first came out I just picked this up and finished it this morning. Then I came on here and read this. The only achievement I have left is that damn die less then 5 times. Totally worth it for this price.
