Playdead's follow-up to Limbo is a superior game in every way.

It looks incredible and controls beautifully, but Inside’s best ideas are spread too thin.

Read full review

Inside is a 2D puzzle platformer that builds upon what made Limbo great, and in fact builds something greater.

Inside's nightmarish journey is fascinating and frightening in equal measure. This puzzle platformer is easily consumed, but digesting its disturbing world will be a contemplative challenge.

Audience Reviews

10 / 10.0
Perfectly and creepy at the same time. The message that gives you when you finish the game is one of the best i´ve ever experienced. It´s dark, it´s apocaliptic, it´s super detailed in textures, contexts, history, and you don´t know anything of the main character, but at the same time you want to help him in his destiny (without knowing what it is until the end of the game).
9 / 10.0
Atmospheric side scrollers became popular thanks to Limbo. With no story, but an entire tale told through the atmosphere, puzzles, and platforming, this became a great way to show gamers that the platforming genre can be a little more mature. Inside nails all the aspects that Limbo created and perfected them. The game starts out with a little boy stumbling out of some trees
