Wow. No, really, Wow. Capital W, little o, little w. Wow.

A word of warning to the adrenaline junkies and hyperactive freaks who're hooked on the high-speed, mindless mayhem of Quake. ICO isn't for you. ICO doesn't ram high-speed graphics down your throat at 100 bazillion miles per hour. ICO is way cooler than that.

ICO is a gorgeous puzzle game for the Playstation 2 video game console. You control Ico - a young boy with horns. He is sent off to a castle and in the middle of an important event everything starts to fall apart. He spots a beautiful young girl (Yorda) and decides to rescue her. The story of ICO is all about getting the two of them out of the castle, past puzzles, obstacles and shadow monsters.
