Liverslices Posted October 25, 2014 Share Posted October 25, 2014 (edited) Yesterday I spent the last bit of my once grand platinum stockpile to buy Limbo... And man am I disappointed. Its not that I wasn't excited or supprised by Limbo, I am actually appalled and just a little bit disgusted. Please read on, Im not just butthurt. Appearance What a great idea, DE. I was so excited when I heard a void sorcerer was joining the Tenno family. 'What will it look like?' I wondered. It isnt hard to understand then when I saw Limbo. Limbo does NOT look like a magician. He instead looks like DE tried to make frost wear a dumb helmet and loose weight. DE, why would you make Limbo look like this? Not only does it go against the various artistic themes of Warframe, but it doesnt even look like what you are trying to imitate. Even worse, it doesnt look good... Limbo has mud flaps for pants and a stick of cotton candy from the fair as a hat. At this point I would pay for a complete reskin. Abilities (General) All Warframes have a theme, and a void sorcerer was a great one. Limbo not only got a cool theme, but also a cool mechanic, where he could "manipulate" dimensions. But this awesome theme and mechanic didnt survive the jump from planning to implimentation. Instead of a cool sorcerer theme, we are left with a warframe that can put shiny glowy effects on enemies. An observer should easily be able to see what this warframe is suppose to be doing, but instead we see him waving his arms and making things light up. Occasionally they die afterwards... GREAT. The mechanic itself is also disappointing. When playing Limbo, being in an alternate dimension is a DISADVANTAGE. You cannot attack enemies or pick up items. You actually have to pull others into it with you, which is a pain (ill talk about that in just a sec). There is also the part where this cool new dimension is just a visual effect that clouds your screen, decreasing visibility. Abilities (Specific) When characters have a kit of abilites, synergy between those abilities is very important. For example: Loki can disarm a group of enemies, go invisible, and then place a decoy to lure the disarmed enemies into melee range. However, Limbo doesnt have that kind of synergy. His 3rd abilty is completely dependent on his 1st and 4th abilities, neither of which are easily used. You either individually target one enemy at at time, or put down his ulti and hope to high heaven that they stumble into it. Meanwhile his 2nd ability makes you useless to your team, unless you use your 1st and 4th abilities agian. So what does that mean? He doesnt have synergy because the abilities are too hard to use all at once. You can use them easily by themselves, but they are useless individually. EDIT: I forgot to mention- Limbo's 2nd ability restors 2 energy per second. This is useful, but it doesnt help his case in any way. When it comes down to the bottom line, Limbo is a flop. A good theme and mechanic was spoiled by a ugly look that doesnt fit the Warframe vibe and abilities that are a pain in the @$$ to use. I wouldnt recommend to anyone spending time or platinum to get Limbo. Edited October 25, 2014 by Liverslices Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
