Excerpt: Ico is a stunning PS2 RPG, a mix of puzzle, action, and platform, with unique gameplay that any gamer should enjoy. In a small village in a remote kingdom, every so often a boy is born with horns.
Summary: I played this on the PS3, and chose to review it here because I haven't played through SOTC yet (the two games come on the same disk on the PS3). For that reason I will refrain from commenting on the visuals, although on the PS3 they are stunning.
Summary: This game was amazing! 4 years ago I made the mistake of trading my game in and regretted it ever since until I managed to become old enough to order this online.

The game was recommended to me by my brother, he had just played through it and was raving on about how brilliant it was.
A simple idea but really, really enjoyable. Buy it now!
