When I first saw this game, it was years ago, back in 2002. My gaming magazine had a demo available to play. Those precious 30 minutes and I was hooked. It is a game with aesthetically pleasing visuals, beautiful soundtrack, and quite different from other games at the time. Have you played ICO?
"Enter a world of enchantment and wonder, where once was, is nevermore. ICO, a mysterious boy, has been expelled from his village to an isolated castle. Within his confines, he begins to have eerie dreams of rescuing a young princess from the evil spirits that dwell within the fortress. Blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, ICO embarks on a quest to save the princess and along the way, discovers his own cryptic fate."
