Finished Ico. I never got a chance to play this when it came out for PS2 but it still really hold up well for a first time player. I liked that the game never held your hand. It made solving the puzzles more rewarding. None of them were that difficult to figure out, not enough to want to check it up online anyway. The waterwheel section and piston jump were annoying though, even though I knew what I had to do.
Ico is crazy athletic. I started off thinking Yorda was just weaker than average but nope, Ico is just that good. Yorda seems to be able to do what a normal person would do. It is not her fault she can't fall 15 metres and just walk it off.
