5.0 out of 5 stars The proof about art in video games
This is the masterpiece. But beware that this is not for first person shooter types, in fact FPS players will find this boring and repetitive and should stay well away. Action, while present, is not what the game is about. It's about mood and atmosphere, it's about getting involved with the hero. It's about the very unusual relationship with the heroine and the way this...

3.0 out of 5 stars Myst for the year 2001...
Ico is a stellar achievement when it comes to environment. Astounding graphics, understatedly perfect sound effects, and the thoroughly haunting and appropriate music with heavy on the strings. Go anywhere in the castle that makes up the game field and you can see the other portions of the castle from the proper persepective. You're truly immersed in this world...

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, Aug. 12 2003
This review is from: Ico - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
This game was terrible. I can not believe they would plague shelves with this mindless drivle. It had no point to it, besides escorting some princess around.
The battles were wayyyy too easy, besides for a couple. The only tough thing about them was that, if you were to be knocked down, the stupid kid wouldn't get up for half a year, and the shadow creatures would be taking off with the princess.
Some good puzzles, otherwise, this game is not worth the time or money. Take it from me, do not get it!

1.0 out of 5 stars A letdown. Maybe i'm not a puzzle fan., Sept. 4 2002
This review is from: Ico - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
I don't really consider this a game. Yes, it is very different. But, what is good in diffrence is bad in gameplay. The princess cannot climb chains at all. Can't she feel a chain? COME ON! The combat is stupid. Look at me! I'm hitting black shadows with a stick! WOW! The puzzles are interesting, but i hate that call that Ico has when calling for Yorda. SQUAWK! Also, PLEASE TRANSLATE YORDA! Maybe i'm not a fan of puzzle games. Oh well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ico? Fun? NOOOOO, July 6 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Ico - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
Well, having just bought this game for very cheap, and all the great ratings (including all you whackos in Amazon) it recieved, I thought I had made another good deal in getting a great game for a low price (like Seek and Destroy, Road Trip, etc.) But, I was wrong.
First of all, this game is TOO FREAKIN HARD. I repeatedly had to run up my stairs and check Game FAQs in the first hour of this game. The levels all look the same so you don't know where you're going. Your princess friend has the IQ of a retarded animal, because you have to call to her 5 times (no exaggeration) to get her up a 10 foot ladder, or else she just sits on the ladder blankly, unmoving.
The graphics are pretty weird, Ico looks like a chinese monkey, and the princess just looks like a monkey angel. The reason for this being such a cult hit, getting all these great reviews? Mystery. Please. I only recommend this game if you absolutely LOVE puzzles every second, limited fighting, and going on game FAQS. Maybe I've just been playing too much Dynasty Warriors, but hey; just stay away from the game even at its baragin bin price.
