Buy It For Shadow of the Colossus
on April 13, 2013
EDIT: ICO was a bundle of frustration overall, but to be honest, I'm glad I played through to the end. I'm now three quarters though Shadow, and it's phenomenal. I can hardly put the controller down. There's nothing quite like it.
I had high expectations when starting this game, but despite all the good reviews, ICO is a mediocre game. It's certainly unique, but the terrible controls/gameplay make it a patience tester. For 20 bucks, you can't go wrong, but I just hope SoC will be better.
