Inside is a great, both as a very clever platformer and for the excellent atmosphere & visual storytelling.
And then trying to interpret what's happening is really interesting to think about.
It's not replayable in the sense that once you've figured out the puzzles then it's just a matter of mechanically doing the platforming, since you know what to do. But I actually like to replay it. It's not like an adventure game; it still has gameplay and it can be pretty zen to just run through it. I've replayed it about 4 or 5 times at least and still liked it.
But for what it's worth, it really is very clever with the set ups. There's always a way forward, no matter how bewildering it seems at first. So even if you only just care about cracking the puzzles it's really fun.

I played it very nice game, coming from the guys that made Limbo it has a pretty dark story but like Judith said is a one off thing, the end imo was very cool and unique.

Is it worth playing limbo (as its on sale also atm) first or are they separate stories..?

Story-wise, Limbo is completely different. They only share the rough idea of an artistic & naturalistic platformer. Inside is also much, much better. Limbo is still a nice platformer, so it's still worth doing someday, but if you play one it should be Inside & no need to play Limbo first.

I haven't finished Limbo, I remember the puzzle design had a "nasty dungeon master syndrome". I felt punished for something I couldn't know more often than not.
Inside is nowhere like that. It's much more organic, refined, and seamless experience, not just a platformer with puzzles. If you have a thing for Half Life 2 aesthetics, you'll love it. The weird, uncomfortable ending alone is worth it.

Limbo has a great athmosphere and art style and provides solid gameplay. There are some frutrating parts, but overall I've enjoyed playing it. If it is on sale then it is definetely worth grabbing it.

The atmosphere in Inside is just superb! Definitely a must-play.
Much like the others, I didn't finish Limbo. It was kinda nice, but didn't keep me motivated.
