A stunning story telling game.

  • Summary: I recommend this game as it is both emotive and compelling. It will not appeal to all gamers, but hopefully shows a glimpse into the future of gaming.
  • Pros: A very compelling game that requires thought to play.
  • Cons: Short, and perhaps not enough 'action' for some players.

  • Pros: The graphics, the storyline, the puzzles and the atmosphere oooh... the atmospher.
  • Cons: Too short to warrant anything above $20

Beautiful design, a stand out experience.

Useless Article, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This game is a triumph of art direction and level design. The star of the game is the castle itself. There have been few games as atmospheric as this (Silent Hill, the first experience of Tomb Raider 1 and Half-Life 2 are some). For a six/seven year old game, it's creaky graphics still have the ability to dazzle; due to the integrity of it's artistic design. The story is minimal (in fact it could have done with less dialog). Remember the beginning and that sword...

A Must for Any Playstation 2 collection

Mr. S. W. Steel "stephensteel", amazon.co.uk
23 March 2007
  • Summary: This is the story of Ico, a boy who is taken to a castle, locked in and left to die.All because he has horns growing from his head, which the people of his village see as a curse.The game opens with an earthquake freeing Ico from his bonds, and seeing a young girl called Yorda trapped in a cage.The game is then about the two trying to escape the castle, and the nightmare creatures that try to recapture Yorda. This game is like an old style platformer in many ways.

  • Summary: Like many people judging from the review i loved ico, i only gave it four stars because i felt it wasn't long enough and the graphics weren't quite there for five stars, don't take this the wrong way though it is still an excellent game and i must admit if it was any longer then it may of began to drag a bit.

Great game too short

Mr. G. Charlesworth "gary20312", amazon.co.uk
22 February 2006
  • Summary: Having just purchased this game a week ago after waiting ages for it to be re-released I must say that my first reaction is a little disappointed. Firstly the good points: this game is stunning graphically and to say that it 4 years old it has no problems standing up alongside newer games tody. All the scenes are beautiful and really show PS2 at its best. The game has a haunting feel to it like and the puzzles in this game really call for some thought.

Unique is a good place to start

Mr. Od Smith "d2kvirus", amazon.co.uk
21 February 2006
  • Summary: For years Ico has been spoken of in hushed, reverential tones. Mostly because it was almost impossible to track down (barring paying through the nose, anyway), and partly as it had good write-ups from everywhere. Now that Shadow of the Colossus has been released, Ico has been given a second chance to be discovered, and hopefully will find a new audicnce. But does it deserve one?
