This game is amazing. It is fun. It is original. People need to stop complaining about the price for how short it is, or the fact that it doesn't have a story. The reasons you love this game are the same reasons its short. The puzzles are not repetitive, it doesn't have a bad or forced story, and its very easy to jump right into.

Am I the only one that thinks anyone who complains on the price is just a whiner who will complain about everything?

That is your opinion.

My opinion is: The game is ok, it's certainly not great, but not bad either. It's worth 800MSP, not the 1200, IN MY OPINION.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion and to state those opinions. The one with the problem here seems to be you, since you don't want anyone to voice an opinion that differs from yours.

The problem is $15 is a different amount of money to different people. Most gamers are sit on the couch, broke, jobless dudes who have to sell their soul to buy an arcade game. For others, $15 is nothing at all. Its all your perception of the price, not the number itself.

Well it is true that I do have a problem, its not that I have no respect for others opinions. I did start a thread asking about the subject after-all.

What I would really like is for someone to convince me WHY this game is not worth 1200 MSP while another game is.

If it is because you don't like the type of game it is, why say it is not worth the price. If you weren't a fan of JRGs, would you say Final Fantasy 13 isn't worth $60, or would you just say you didn't like it.

My issue is more that so many people are saying how great the game is, while at the same time saying it isn't worth 1200 MSP. ( I had just got done listening to the CAGCast when I started this thread). I guess I just want someone who genuinely likes the game to tell me why it isn't worth 1200 while another game is.

Where orafalcons was pointing out that it depends on your perception of $15, to me that is more a complaint on the price of games vs what you can afford, then a comment on the quality of the game. If $15 is a lot of money to you, what game would be worth $15?

I don't mean to troll, I am just sick of people picking apart an original, and what I think is, a very fun game.

It's worth every penny.

Even if you only get a few hours play (which is completely false anyway, there's 10 minimum if you want to find everything) it's still cheaper and longer lasting than a trip to the cinema, which nobody complains about, and you get to keep this.

10/$15 is fine. You'd spend 3-4 times that on beer on a night out and not complain. Think of this as comparitively a cheap evening in instead.

Love the game.. but i think 800http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h34/deadlyed/xbox%20buttons/MSPIcon.jpg represents its value more than 1200http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h34/deadlyed/xbox%20buttons/MSPIcon.jpg does, i dont regret buying though

Playdead didnt chose the Price, MS did.

MS probably saw the game coming As an top bought game like Braid, so they set the Price up, because they knew alot of people would but it

anyway... The Egg Is A Lie! ~Glad0s

I thought people were complaining more that 1200 seems to be the set price for new arcade releases nowadays, wh the odd few coming in at 800. But if people keep buying games at 1200... well, what reason would there be to sell them for less?

It's a value problem, the game is great but at 15 dollars it's value is low.

I like how 2 of the people who say it isn't worth 1200 have changed their signature to reflect their enjoyment of the game. I guess I just don't get it.

$15 is definitely too steep for the length of this game. Now, I love this game and think it's great. I love supporting Indie developers and I understand that they need money, so I justified the price in my eyes. I can't say the same for anyone else.

The game is only 4 hours and there's not much hidden content to really entice another playthrough. You beat the game and you're done, achievements not withstanding. Most people will see this as a fun, but how can you justify 1 playthrough for $15?

As far as I am concerned I have yet to see ANY game worth 1200. Yes the game is great but there are many other games that are just as good or better that do not have such a high price point.

Yeah, I think your pretty much alone here, I love the game, I bought it, don't really regret it because I think the game warrants numerous playthroughs. But do I really think it was worth a full 1200 MSP, no, reason being, just when the puzzles were kind of getting tough, the game ended, I was pretty pissed, the games great, as far as originality goes, its a puzzle platformer, we've all seen them, they are great fun. Only thing original about is the art style, the black on white on gray on black is really neat to look at, and its pretty creepy at times, and I like that. And its probably the first game of its kind to be complete free flow, with no "LEVEL COMPLETED" signs taking center of the screen. I really enjoy Limbo its a game I think everyone needs to experience, but microsoft has been crazy in the last year or so pricing they're arcade titles. I think they really need to reevaluate their prices.

Well, that's because you're dumb.

Nobody said they didn't like the game. Read slower. You're, dumb.

Dude, what's your deal? You can still like the game but dislike the price.

Anyway, I bought it, and I agree that it wasn't really worth the $15. In fact, when I was almost through, I went back to dashboard with the intent to never play it again, and I had only gotten 3 achievements for it. Now, I'm planning on getting the final achievement (no sense in dying) but when I did beat the game, I was disappointed. I was frustrated with the difficulty (my opinion is that you have to be too precise and there is little room for human error) and it was too hyped up IN MY OPINION. It was really neat, but didn't really bring anything "new" to the table. I mean, I've seen reverse gravity, I've seen "beat the clock" sort of puzzles, so it's not "new", but it is fun.

I just wish that for $15 I would have gotten something more than just 10 or so hours. Braid gave me more than that, and it wasn't nearly as frustrating.

Just leave it at that. No one will be able to say "I think these reasons make it worth less than 1200 but it's my favorite game ever," so you might as well stop trying to figure it out, you'll probably just end up frustrating yourself.

It's a good game, but not a GREAT game. My opinion.

In my opinion this game is slightly above average. 2 1/2 out of 4 stars. I read the reviews that this game is magical, exciting, like nothing you have ever dreamed of etc. I watched my buddy play and beat the game, but all i really seen was was a short 2d puzzle game. I think its one of those games that are fun the first time through. For example I spent my money on the game i would know exactly what to do for every puzzle.

i bought it... i loved it... i still don't feel it's worth the $15 i paid... compared to games like shadow complex or battlefield 1943 or a few other games that cost the same price, i just don't feel like i got my money's worth... hell even worms armageddon, which was only 800, has given me 100+ hours of gameplay

I was thinking about this after i bought Hydro which was disapointing, but when i compare the price to what i use on other crap its nothing, a pack of smoke cost 15 bucks, but its fookin expensive here tho :(

I didn't buy Limbo when it came out because I'm a broke college student. Now even if I had money to blow I'm not sure I'd get Limbo. It looks like a cool game and all (played the demo) but there's no way it should cost 15 dollars. For just a little more I could probably go get Mario and an NES if you like side scrollers or a little more and I could get Prince of Persia if you like puzzles. I'd expect to see this game on AddictingGames.com not on XBLA. Especially when you can get multiplayer more in depth games like Monday Night Combat and even Hydro Thunder.

Just giving my two cents from the perspective of someone who only has two cents.

i love the game and dont muiss the 1200 points i spent on it, i do miss teh points i have spent on other shite on xbox llive like the army of two add on which has glitched achievements, the map pack i bought for avp only to find out they are stopping support for the game amongst other things

I personally think it's worth every penny of the 1200MSP, but the problem is Braid which is longer, move visually arresting and frankly more challenging only costs 800MSP. I'd happily spend 1200 MSP on Braid but they should really be the same price.

All though i was interested in this game and its originality the $15 price tag just annoys me, what happened to last year when i could buy 2 arcade games with 1600 msp card. But not i can only buy 1 and have to buy another card just to get some DLC/Arcade game i want. Whoever decided "Hey lets bump the price of all DLC/Arcades to 1200" deserves to be punched.

I paided 15 bucks for it, beat it, had fun. I don't think it was worth 1200 points maybe 800. Don't get me wrong Limbo was fun as hell just not long enough.

I bought the first map pack when I was playing every day but now I play every once and a while so it's not even worth it. The new maps suck anyway.

It sounds like you just assume people that think it it is a pricey game, don't like it. Which is a stupid assumption. Sorry to be blunt, but come on. I like filet mignon too, and don't think i should pay $28 for a piece of meat. Doesn't make me like it less than someone who will pay $50 if they had too.

Personally, I'v only played the demo and while it seemed like an interesting game, i to thought it was a tad high. Despite the look of it, which actually id better than quite a few retail titles, it is a side-scrolling platformer, most people have been playing those for years if not decades. The gameplay need some more fine tuning (it's like friction doesn't exist in this game). no story, no real escapism, all in all, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade title has more for less.

1200 is verging toward the price of what PS1 titles and many PS2 titles were when they came out or hit bestseller status, those game were full fledge games and worth every cent. Many of these arcade titles just don't pack as much punch per buck. Simple as that.

Notice in what you quoted me saying I said that I started this thread because people were saying how much they liked the game and saying it wasn't worth it at the same time. Seems to me like the opposite of assuming people don't like the game.

Before I had said that though, most of the people on this thread saying that it wasn't worth the $15 were saying that they didn't think it was that good. If you didn't think it was that I good I understand why you don't think it was worth it. My whole reason for starting this thread is to get opinions from the people saying how much they enjoy the game while also saying it is over priced.

What about them? They all fucking suck, I purchased the first one just to be disappointed. WOW! A full week of Xbox Live for free? Who cares? At first I wanted to believe you could make a valid point, by now I lost all hope. A piece of shit makes a better rebuttal than you.

an ok game at best. you only know the boy is in limbo because that's the name of the game. you spend the whole game hoping you find a reason behind everything and you just ended up spending 3 hours platforming for a silent ending that explains nothing. and you can only assume that's his sister because i read the game description before playing. without that info, i would have been even more uninterested in the story.

the gameplay was ok but just no real motivation in any of it. and it was short.
800 msp would have been an ok price but still a tad pushing it

someone asked why Microsoft decided to start charging 1200 MSP all the time. I said COD MW2 Map packs. Read the post before you start swearing next time smart guy.

Limbo is one of my favorite games out there right now, however, 15$ is way too much for any digital content. The point of digital content is that its cheap and easy to distribute. Games used to cost 400 points back in the days, with a few 800 points exceptions. 1200 is way too much. They could have easily charged 800 points for these ones. But they know they got us by the balls and that we'll pay whatever the hell we have too to get new content to keep up with others. I'm not as bad as I used to be, but a few years back, I had to buy every top quality new game out there so I wouldn't feel left out.

Anyways, the game is awesome, a must buy in my opinion but it should have been 800 points.
