This game is beautiful but it assumes that you know how to do everything right off the bat. We were left very confused as for what to do for most of it. There are no in game tutorials and, other than online guides it was pretty much just mashing buttons till you knew what to do. Very disappointing.
I wanted to like these games since I had heard both were great. Of the two, I played ICO more. In both cases, what made me quit were poor controls. Every game should have perfect controls. That is basic. If you can't do that I have no interest in playing the game.
The controls weren't broken and might have been OK 10 years ago but not today. If your going to update graphics and sound why not controls?
