Summary: The visuals of this game are very pleasant, but I find the constant prompting by NPCs telling the character what to do next a little obvious. It's a great game for kids or people just getting into gaming, who want to be guided through a story.
Summary: First of all let me just make a quick disclaimer, I played this game in Japanese, so I can't talk about the voice acting in the English version. But apart from that, I absolutely love this game. The puzzles are fun, the majin's powers and interesting and just varied enough, and the world is engaging.
Summary: I enjoyed this game a lot. It is not a fast paced game but once you get into it it keeps you wanting more. You want the collectibles, you want the treasure chests, you want the fruits, you want the orbs. I played this for about a week and a half to completion and was sorry it ended. The actual combat is quite repetitive but it was still enjoyable to me. There were only four bosses I think who were very manageable. Overall the game is quite easy.

Summary: Most people dont know this game exists and I was one of those people. I don't remember what I was searching for but this popped up and I asked around to see what my friends thought. I heard good things and couldn't believe I never heard of this game. I purchased it and was really glad I did. It's a great game and I recommend it to anyone!
Summary: This game is pretty fun. Each of the levels is beautiful and captivating with a nice variety in setting and an awesome soundtrack. One of my biggest issues though is combat using the main character gets pretty boring. Your character really can only fight using one button and mostly the Majin does the work (you can direct him on who to attack and which power to use). For people who are more into hands on combat this might be an issue.
Summary: As other reviews and any trailers will show, this is a Zelda-esque action adventure game, with constant environmental puzzles to solve. Sadly, simple enjoyable games have become rare, and critics always seem to find fault, particularly in a game that has no grand cut-scenes, and poor-to-mediocre voice acting. The game is simple, and does not have the depth of a Zelda game, but is certainly an enjoyable and great game.
Summary: This is a good game, and deserves playing. However, being released during the Christmas AAA-game rush means that it probably won't played by many people. Pity. So... Is some of the voice acting terrible? Yes. Is the story a mash-up of cliches from bigger-budget games? Yes. Are some of the animations clunky? Yes. BUT... The game costs $40 (or a bit less here on Amazon) as opposed to the $60 you pay for AAA titles, and you certainly get what you paid for, and then some.
Summary: I have been gaming for a long time. I am 30 years of age, and I have my share of systems. From the Atari 7800 to the Wonderswan so I know gaming. Also, I am a developer to boot. With that said, I think this game is a great game for any adventure lover. I myself, love adventure games like The Legend of Zelda series as well as Ico.
Summary: Played the demo and even though I aggreed with the general assements I'd heard about the voice acting (the Maijins voice sounds EXACTLY like Jim Florentines retarded voiice from Terrorizing Telemarketers...spot on) I hoped the puzzles and good gameplay would override that issue. I loved Ico and have always been looking for games that have the same vibe so was looking forward to picking this up.
