I'm enjoying it so far.. I guess I played about 2 hours already. Very beautiful game, nice atmoshpere!! The actual gameplay reminds me a lot of some old NES/SNES puzzle games. I'm still surprised by how GOOD this game looks.

I saw this at a couple of BB's and there were plenty in stock.

I picked this game up a few months ago for the same price at CC.

It's a really nice, pretty, slow-paced, puzzle game.
I want to say it's zelda-esque, but not sure how accurate that is.

Overall, not accurate.. but ICO's puzzle solving is very similar to Zelda's like moving boxes, lighting torches, etc.. however that's just PART of Zelda and it's (up to the point I'm at) ALL of ICO.

I think of it more like Out of this World (one of my favorite games ever, by the way).

This is a game I really wanna play, but don't have a PS2. I am a sucker for zelda-esque adventure games. I may pick this up before I get a PS2.

This is another game that is worthy of playing again. I'll probably never get around to it, but I should.
