ICO First Playthrough
« on: February 19, 2013, 02:06:10 PM »
I'm starting ICO today.  Any advice that I should know before I start?

No sense getting stuck and giving up, so if you get really stuck then use a guide.
It has some pretty difficult puzzles.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I cruised through it, good game.  The camera is atrocious and it can make the platforming towards the end of the game difficult.  Other than that it was a cool game.

The camera really isn't that bad you just have to know how to use it since you're used to most games not having a fixed camera controls.

The camera is far worse in SOTC, to the point that it's almost game breaking in parts.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I never used a guide and I consider myself an average gamer at best. One of my fave games of all time. Spent 50 bucks on it new when it came out, beat it in 6 1/2 hours and STILL didn't feel ripped off.

I loved the eerie music that'd play when you'd find a new weapon or whatever. Subtle and awesome

I never understood bad camera remarks.  I thought his shitty grip killed it for me instead to even try completing Time Attackß.
