Ico

Thunderbolt Games
26 December 2005
  • Excerpt: In some regards, Ico is the antithesis of most macho console games. There’s little in the way of narration aside from a couple cutscenes, but the mysterious plot is one of the most intriguing aspects of Ico . There are no health bars and the simplistic combat often has the young protagonist armed with only a wooden plank. There aren’t any bosses aside from the final enemy, but there is plenty of hand-holding and puzzles.

  • Summary: All in all, Ico is a great game for a change of pace, and is certainly worth picking up and completing. You'll enjoy actually beating a game for a change, but you'll know it could have been much better and deeper. Some more variety, some RPG elements, more storyline, and this could be a perfect game. But as we've learned, nothing's perfect, but Ico is close enough.
  • Pros: Incredible Graphics., Actually beatable., Excellent gameplay., Breath of fresh air.
  • Cons: Sometimes feels like work., Somewhat short., Repetitive at a point., No storyline.

Ico

The Next Level
14 November 2001
  • Excerpt: Without a doubt, Ico is one the most unique games to come along in a long time. But with a game lacking an abundance of action, interaction that's practically barren, one would question how Ico could be considered entertaining. Simply put...it's the experience. Ico 's attraction is subtle, shaped by an array of visual effects, unprecedented realism and one of the most distinctive gameplay designs to be introduced in an action/adventure title.

  • Excerpt: Al inicio de la guerra moderna de las consolas, las principales herramientas que tenía un juego de video eran el poder de sus gráficos y el equipo de marketing que tenía detrás. Originalmente ICO estaba siendo desarrollado para PS One y terminó por lanzarse en PS2 sin mucho aviso. Se trata de un juego de corte muy clásico, con gráficos poco impresionantes, pero con una estética elegante que lo lleva hacia adelante y lo convierte en una opción bastante sólida.
  • Pros: Muy buena ambientación, todos los elementos son orgánicos y nada está fuera de lugar. Excelente forma de hacerte preocuparte por un personaje.
  • Cons: Yorda no es inteligente y arrastrarla por todos lados puede ser un dolor de cabeza, gráficamente es bastante pobre.
