If your drawn to it, go for it. Any minor quibbles with camera or controls are dwarfed by the relationship between the boy and the beast. The story is original and intriguing, with some fun puzzles where that you need to solve together.

Hearing frame rate is unstable too

I played it for 30 mins on a standard PS4 and had to stop due to motion sickness.
paid full price on the last guardian and it was worth every penny. Amazing game
I've been saying I'll get this game since the PS2 release, then the PS3, now it's on PS4, I think I'll get it when it's on PS5 4K VR

Controls are a bit clunky but as others have echoed it is a small price to pay for such an amazing story. The Trico is one of gaming’s true marvels, its mannerisms & behaviours make me wonder how they got it so realistic. Buy it, for £15 it’s a steal!

The game was only released on the PS4 recently, not sure if you mean ico or shadow of the colossus?

OH yeh lol I was thinking of Shadow of the colossus, when I was reading of the issues thats what my mind went to. I guess it wouldn't be a team ICO game without issues. (Only played ICO)

you mixed it up with Shadow of the Colosus because this game was released only for PS4.
Yes, this game has control issues and on base PS4 unreliable frame-rate, but these pale compared with all that this game offers. An incredible, moving, haunting and powerful game.

I have the PS4 pro so hopefully would get less framerate issues.

Yes. I've heard a Pro rectifies any frame-rate issues.
The controls can be really frustrating and the camera is one of the worst I've experienced, but it's still one of my favourite games I've ever played. Trico became so real to me playing it that I miss him now like I miss a childhood pet/friend. One of the great achievements of gaming.
Loved this game... One of the few games I have worked through to the bitter end!

It was actually originally intended to be released on PS2, then development was moved to PS3 before disappearing for nearly a decade & finally being released on PS4. I followed it for that long 😄
As has been mentioned, yes it's got technical problems to a SMALL degree but once you're hooked into it, it's any amazing story with a real emotional hook that not many games can really pull off.

Gaming is all the better when things like this exist.

If you've got a pc as well, check out Brothers : a tale of two sons. Nice take on single player co-op play.

Thats also on PS4 Xavier. I really enjoyed it
I think reviews that focused on the controls being poor missed the point of the game. The entire point is that Trico is a sentient, independent being and he doesn't follow orders. You have to coax him to complete tasks like you would a wild animal. You have to build trust and learn to understand each other. If you could directly control Trico the emotional core of the game would be lost.

If you love Team Ico games, you'll love this. Go in knowing what to expect and get lost in the game's world and lore and you'll have a fantastic time. If you have PSVR, checking out the VR demo is an absolute must too, although I would recommend playing the game first. There aren't any spoilers or anything, but once you've spent time getting to know Trico and developing a bond with him throughout the main game, encountering him in VR elevates it from being a tech demo to feeling like reunited with a friend.

I can't praise the game highly enough. Take a chance on it, I say.
Also music magpie is currently paying £15 for a used copy of the game!

Remember the days when people didnt worry bout frame rates/graphics etc.

I remember when I only worried about my volume and equalizer settings actually loading my Speccy games! After that you were grateful you could play at all!
Days when you couldn't see endless videos of the game before you bought it, or play alphas. Somehow magazines and word of mouth were just as good and more imaginative. Look at some scans of Crash or ZZAP64, the writing standards were so much higher back then. Compared to an IGN article it's like reading a thesis vs. a copy of Hello.

It's laughable that you'll get massive arguments with kids claiming the xbox one x is garbage because it's only running certain games in 30fps at 4k and people claiming they can tell the difference between 120 and 150fps.

Anyway, as long as original games get released I'll keep playing, even if the media surrounding gaming has been dumbed down over the years.
I think the controls, camera, framerate, and creature can be frustrating. But overall they don't stop it from being a good game.

While some people complained about not being able to directly control Trico, that's not what people mean about the controls being poor. Your avatar in the game is the little boy and controlling him is the issue. Remember being on Trico's back and wanting to jump off but ending up hanging upside down from his neck feathers?

Well, yeah, that can happen but I think on the whole most people should adapt to the controls reasonably quickly. Certainly anyone familiar with Ico or Shadow of the Colossus shouldn't have much issue with it..
