ICO (PlayStation 2)

 

Under development for a long time, and released with little fanfare, ICO is perhaps the epitome of a sleeper hit. The game was developed by a relatively fresh internal team at Sony, and the original PlayStation was its original target platform. It...

I came to play Sony's ICO through word of mouth. The whispers began at E3 and grew to full out acclaim when the game was released this past fall. So when a copy of ICO came across my desk, I jumped at the opportunity to experience the adventure for...

When all is said and done, ICO is a finely crafted adventure game that combines exotic locales with mind-teasing puzzles. The ride may be a bit short in the end, but it's one that you won't soon forget. If the words "puzzle", "action" and "adventure"...

Ico

 

Ico is a rare gem among videogames. It is a game that doesn't grab your attention by being loud, but by being quiet. Ico is just about as minimalist as they come, with gameplay and storyline both extremely straightforward… or so it would seem. In...

Amazing graphics and sound ; Fantastic puzzle design ; Absolutely beautiful design and presentation

Game is far too short ; Some may be turned off by the game's minimalist style

For $50, this game was just too short to reccomend a purchase, but at $20, this sole flaw is much easier to forgive. Good thing, too, because this game absolutely must be played- it is a beautiful and unique title that's one of the greatest examples of...

The Playstation 2 certainly was an example of how hype sells, considering that the only games worth of note for its launch were Ridge Racer V and Fantavision. But the first game to show us exactly what Sony's black box could do was quite possibly ICO,...

Here's to hoping for such a possibility.
