    The Last guardian is indeed suffering from some technical and control input issues, but its warm, beautiful adventure filled with countless touching moments is something we’ll never forget for the rest of our lives. The Last Guardian is not just a game, it’s an absolute work of art.

    The Last Guardian is not perfect, but those issues are nothing compared to its wonderful gameplay and its beautiful setting. This game and its soundtrack will live forever in the gaming world.

    Details are a golden currency in Ueda’s games, and The Last Guardian greatest puzzle is their ultimate assembly. The impact in its final act is both somber and spirited, and it’s the pinnacle of the ideas it tries to put forward. I knew where The Last Guardian was going and I still couldn’t help but respond with deluge of raw emotion.

    Despite an appalling technical aspect with camera troubles and a wacky handling, The Last Guardian is a very good story-based puzzle game that makes you feel immersed in the relationship between the boy and Trico.

    Whether or not you feel the mechanical issues will be enough to ruin this sweet, impeccably realised, emotive game is up to you. For me, they're annoying but ephemeral. There were a hundred games released this year that are more fluid and fun to play minute-to-minute, and dozens that perform with a silky smooth frame rate, yet I'll remember this adventure with Trico long after I've forgotten those.

    A heartwarming story, a mysterious world, and a slowly-growing bond between two unlikely companions ensure that fans of Team Ico’s past work won’t be disappointed. Clunky controls and a handful of graphical issues, however, mean that The Last Guardian may not be an enjoyable game for everyone—though, either way, Trico is adorable.

    Outdated and flat gameplay mechanics, poor controls, technical issues. The Last Guardian couldn’t be saved even by the extreme efforts from Sony to finish the game no matter the time. As you will love Trico for sure, the game itself you will certainly not. [Issue #270]

    Es el juego más bonito que he jugado nunca, me gustan muchísimo este tipo de juegos como Brother, pero este The Last Guardian supera a todos,Es el juego más bonito que he jugado nunca, me gustan muchísimo este tipo de juegos como Brother, pero este The Last Guardian supera a todos, es increíble como se mueve Trico, ¡¡está ahi, es real!!. Tiene sus errores como los gráficos que no son punteros y bajada de fps, pero toda la magia que desprende eclipsa todo lo demás.

    Si no te gustan estos juegos....lo verás como un bodrio.

    the last guardian es juego que te atrapa desde el momento 1, un juego que ame por como se va desarrolando la historia con tu compañero Tricothe last guardian es juego que te atrapa desde el momento 1, un juego que ame por como se va desarrolando la historia con tu compañero Trico quien de por si pareciera que estuviera Vivo!, han hecho un trabajo impresionante en este gran animal, pero lo que mas me llevo de este exclusivo es la conexion que haces con trico es miuy emocional, magico algo que hacia rato no sentia en un juego, relamente increible, en todo momento te quedas perplejo viendolo hacer cualquier cosa

    a pesar de todos sus fallos desde la camara, controles, grandes caidas de fps, historia confusa. pienso que es un impresidible para cualquier poosedor de una ps4

    Five Word Review: Great platformer with frustrating elements.
    Favorite Thing: Trico is one of the best companions in any game I've played.
    Five Word Review: Great platformer with frustrating elements.
    Favorite Thing: Trico is one of the best companions in any game I've played.
    Least Favorite Thing: The camera and controls are shoddy. Especially when relating to Trico, he listens about as well as you would expect from a cat-bird.

    Playtime: 11h
    Enjoyment: 8/10
    Recommendation: Any platformer fan should play this game.
