Good

Sick, Twisted and Simple

Limbo, clearly the standout title in this 3-game pack can be best described with those three adjectives. In this title, you have to guide a dark shadow of a character through environments that range from murky swamps to industrial tunnels, using fantastic puzzle elements to keep him from dying. Along your path are bear traps, falling storage bunkers, giant spiders and savages with poison darts. The unique art style of this platformer, along with the accessibility and sheer simplicity of its controls make it a definite must play. And now that it's a rental, there's no excuse to not give it a try! Limbo's story can be completed in a couple of hours, even with collecting all the easter eggs.

Trials HD comes in at a close second. Glorious stunts and crashes are fun to enact, and it gives you a daredevil feeling from the safety and comfort of your couch. With a level editor and bikes and tournaments to unlock, Trials has quite a bit of replay value.

Splosion Man, in my opinion, is the least appealing of the three games. I should have guessed I was in for sensless entertainment when I opened the Options menu and found all four face buttons were set to "SPLODE!" A "splode" is essentially an exploding jump. You can splode three times in one jump. Unlike Limbo, whose simplicity comes off as artistically genius, Splosion Man feels more demented and uninspired.

I totally ignored the other two games, but Limbo is a lot of fun. Sometimes the side scroller games can get a bit tedious because you have to try over and over, but Limbo more than makes up for this with imaginative gameplay and beautiful and gory game setting.

i rented this game purely for "limbo",and i am most certainly happy that i did. this game is very new and interesting,the presentation is not like anything i have ever seen before,i never thought i could say that a black and white game is somehow colorful. the puzzle make the game though,they can be so mind bending and hard,this is truly a trippy game and if thats your thing then you are definitely going to be impressed. and if you don't like trippy then you should still give it a try.
