9.5Classic!

Finally this is really a clever game. Strong Story, good and innovative gameplay, breathtaking graphics (above all when you are at the edges of castle) unforgettable sound and voices. It offers also the joy to replay it from start and be able to discover something new. Out of all this is TeamICO game to own

10Classic!

Ico is a game I missed out on when it first came out for the PS2. It was one of those smaller titles I never heard of and started playing it years later. The main thing you do in Ico is solve puzzles. While doing this, you help a girl, Yorda, by holding her hand and leading her to the right path. Many people have criticized Yorda as being somewhat useless and even dumb. I would disagree. Yorda has the ability to help you with certain puzzles. She does only follow, for the most part, when you hold her hand and lead her. This isn't a bad thing though. I feel like it helps you, as the main character, connect with her. The only real gripe I have with Ico is that the controls are a bit iffy. It might take some time to get used to the controls.

8.0Great

After playing SotC, and loving it, I thought that I'd enjoy this game. The artwork is good and some of the puzzles can be fun but the game suffers on many levels. Yorda, the young woman whom you escort, is a complete nuisance; her only use is to open doors. She has terrible AI and she can't even defend herself. Fighting the Shadow Creatures is incredibly boring; you don't even have a health meter, so the only way you can die (apart from falling) is by having the Shadow Creatures take Yorda. Also the battles are repetitive and last too long. I was bored within an hour of playing this game, but I found the last portion of the game, and it's cutscenes to be enthralling. If I played this in 2001, I would have enjoyed it a lot more. 8/10

--unrated

I'm not the biggest fan of puzzle games, and that's the sole reason why this is so far down on my list. Ico is a beautiful game with many brilliant little touches to it, and the story is wonderful.

10Classic!

If possible, try to withhold final judgment until you finish the game. I've played a lot of games, and this instantly became my all-time favorite upon completing it. I'll leave it at that so as not to spoil anything. FYI, I played the ps3 Team Ico collection version.

9.0Fantastic

Ico is a great puzzle game that proves that you don't need dialogue to make a fun game. This game and Shadow of the Colossus are as close to artwork as you'll ever find in a video game.

6.5Good

It's got fantastic level design (for the most part), along with a good atmosphere and engaging story. That being said, 25% of the game is made up of combat sections, which are thoroughly shallow and tedious - a simple affair of mash square to continue, with the only penalty being incredibly lazily designed (getting knocked down, unable to control the character for a few seconds). There's a fair few graphical glitches which really destroy the sense of immersion the game tries to create - every time you hold a barrel or climb a pole your weapon goes straight through. The AI is good for the most part, but Yorda does occasionally decide to be act like a moron, not to mention how aggravatingly slow her walking speed is!

9.5Classic!

The story in Ico is top notch and it's handled with elegance. It also creates a haunting atmosphere with beautiful visuals and is extremely bold and inventive. The puzzles are excellentely designed and the mechanics are fantastic. There are a few flaws such as the rather poor combat and the ocasionally uncooperive camera but it's such a unique and satisfying exerience that these are easily overlooked.

9.5Classic!

Atmospheric and bold, one of the first truly artistic games on the PS2.
