    ICEY is a biting commentary on the entire medium of games. Beneath a solid 2D action game lies one of the most interesting titles I’ve had the pleasure of playing. It’s a game that isn’t afraid to take risks, and managed to constantly surprise me despite pulling off the ridiculous several times prior. Everyone who considers themselves a “gamer,” should play ICEY, and then sit down to think about its message.

    ICEY is a nice little adventure that blends in some great combat with a fourth wall breaking adventure and excellent visuals.

    ICEY IS a neat idea, that admittedly, probably won’t be for everyone. What does beat at the heart of ICEY, is a perfectly acceptable action game with fluid visuals, style and energy. All of which contains an interesting twist on the experience.

    Although Icey contains an entertaining meta narrative, it really isn't much of a game. However, the combat can be quite fun (albeit underutilized) so if you're looking for a short and strange experience then Icey will be worth checking out.

    I really enjoyed this game. It's one solid game and the combat is so fluid and responsive. The story line is what gets you. I really had toI really enjoyed this game. It's one solid game and the combat is so fluid and responsive. The story line is what gets you. I really had to wreck some brain cells to get my head around what the game was really about. The one draw back is that it is really short. Great for trophy hunters but not for those of us who really want to dig into a game. Either way... worth your money. Expand
