I like this for sure the weakest of the trilogy but still an interesting look at this world even if it feels a lot more shallow
All the Team ICO games directed by Fumito Ueda are one of kind. You are emotionally invested in a way that doesn't rely on words. The Last Guardian features a companion creature that is more lifelike than anything I've seen in other games. The catch is that its behaviour can be unpredictable which makes solving puzzles or doing platforming cumbersome. I recommend playing on a PS5 since it's a stuttering mess on an original PS4.
Trico is great. The game's structure, however, is pretty shallow. It builds from the cinematic platformer tradition that Ico started pushing, but it still feels too limiting. The game relies on setpieces for development and drama, where it should let Trico's AI do the talking.
