On a distant island village, there is a legend that anyone born with horns will bring about calamity. Such a boy was born named Ico. To ensure the safety of their village, Ico is offered as a sacrifice at a nearby castle. However, he escapes and finds a young girl named Yorda imprisoned there as well. While trying to escort her out, they are attacked by the angered spirits of the castle and Yorda's mother, the queen of the castle. Together, Ico and Yorda must work to flee from the castle before they can be claimed by the spirits. Written by BoredGamer

5 May 2006 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

If you like shooting or killing with the pleasure of blood splattering you're screen, then you're looking at the wrong game. Ico might of been an early game for PS2 but it's still the top game in my list (and indeed many other players.) The two main characters Ico and Yorda are brilliantly designed and you don't need English audio to understand the strong friendship between them. The music is soft and touching. Puzzles are very good. Not you're basic Lara Croft Tomb Raider stuff but REAL puzzles that are complex even if you re-play the game. But the best bit...the graphics. The scenery is so beautiful it's better than life itself. For an early game, the graphics still out-beat most scenery on PS2 games. You'll find you're self absorbed in a beautiful mystical world as you fight shadows, solve puzzles and find you're way to freedom.
