It looks interesting, has won prizes and so on but is it worth getting?

Or maybe there are other "small" things in the download shops for the 360 or PS3 which I need to buy as well?

    Yes. If you're truly on the fence, wait the year or however long it takes for them to lower it to 800 during a weekly sale and hope you don't miss it, or else get a friend to go half and half with you on it.

    But get it. $15 is not that expensive and it's a really good game.

    There was a steam sig here. It's gone now.

    Did you rage after paying for Braid and finishing it in a few hours? That's the litmus test.

    I loved Limbo.

    What if I raged at Braid being pretentious and full of itself with anti-war messages? :P (though I will admit that game was damn short for $15)

    By all means, rage over that. But Limbo is about as long. There is no pretentious story though.

    There was a pretty active thread on this for awhile. Maybe that will help you decide.

    I'd say wait for a sale. I can see why some people would love it, I really only enjoyed the first third.

    That opening third is really quite special though.

    Don't know how I could miss that other thread - I even used the search function before posting.

    Anyway from what I've read here and in the main thread I shall buy the moment I have a few hours of game time where it's dark outside. Thx all for the input.
