The game is very unique. Animations of the animal (trico) are impressive and mostly realistic. The game has tedious controls, but they are not too bad. The controls started to feel normal after a couple hours of playing.

The Last Guardian is an unusual game because it is very interesting, wonderful, and immersive, but not always very fun. It's a peaceful slow-paced game, but some moments can be frustrating and a little stressful, but usually a lot less stressful than many other video games.

The puzzles are natural, but too natural. When there is a puzzle to solve the scenario feels just like it would in real life If one was lost in a bunch of caves and castles with a giant animal. Because of this, the puzzles are sometimes confusing and make the player feel lost, barely surviving, and only managing to find a the solution or pathway out of luck, creativity, and accident. This makes the solutions play out realistically like they would in a story book or movie, rather than a videogame. The puzzles may be confusing and frustrating, but natural, real, and interesting, and they never feel fake or 'gamey', and this is one of the main reasons that makes the The Last Guardian so special.

Most of the time, The Last Guardian provides a zen-like experience with great art, sound, and attention to detail. The visuals and gameplay in the game present one of the most believable and natural looking fantasy worlds in a video game.

It also has a very weird and interesting story.

It is one of my favourite games and I would definitely play it at least a couple more times. It's just so unique and special that I recommend anyone to try it.

Overall, I give it 4/5 stars, but the game also has some 5/5 star moments, as well as some 3/5 star moments.

One of the best video games I've ever played. Great story line and graphics. It's pretty challenging but doable with patience. Highly recommended.

Bad controls. Constant technical issues. A horrible camera that is always at odds with the game and player. This game has received a high metacritic solely because it is the third game by Team Ico. Shadow of the Colossus came out well over a decade from this games' release. The eternally delayed development shows here, and ultimately this should have been a movie not a game. Disappointing having bought and enjoyed Shadow of the Colossus in the PS2 era.

Can't rate on content, but wasn't able to play for more than 15 mins before motion sickness set in. The beginning that I did get through is somewhat mysterious.
