5.0 out of 5 stars The best game ever on PS2 30 July 2010
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you don't know about this game it's not surprising - for some reason it didn't do very well on it's release... but talk to the people who bought it and played it and they'll all tell you how much they loved it.

Ico is staggering in many ways - particularly when you consider when it was made (it was originally intended and developed for the PS1!). The game play and idea is refreshing different and the graphics and scenery is beautiful (it may look a little dated alongside todays new machines, but it still looks excellent.

The main thing for me about this game though is just how involved you become with characters and story (which is expanded on in another amazing game by the same team, now collectively known in the industry as Team Ico and which I'll tell you about in a moment). Ico - Japanese for 'come here' is a young boy with horns who is banished to a castle by his village elders as part of a ritual. Meant to perish as a sacrifice the plucky Ico breaks free from the stone tomb he was put in and so starts the game. Essentially it's one big puzzle - there is a bit of action, with black ghost that appear every now and then which Ico hase to fight off, but the main drive of the game is puzzle based: Ico is presented with the task of escape - escape from the castle one room at a time. Solve one room and then the next.

During the game Ico meets a princes called Yorda who's been enslaved by the evil queen who dwells within the castle walls, Ico (or you as the player) have to figure out how to get Yorda out of the castle with you. Solve the riddle of each room then figure out how to get Yorda out with you.

The characters are truly touching and the dynamics between them still almost bring a tear to my eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ico 9 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up Ico after playing the amazing Shadow of the Colossus which is a very loose prequel. Ico is just as good, though smaller in scope, no gigantic monsters here. Instead you are guiding a girl around and saving her from evil shadows.

The graphics aren't cutting edge anymore but they are stylized enough to be a acceptable and the sound design is superb.

Ico is a PS2 classic that unfortunately wasn't played by many people. I would highly recommend it.

This is by far for me the best game ever before Mass Effect 2. If you have the money to get it, do not hesitate.
