While The Last Guardian is in no way a perfect game, if is something that fans of The Shadow of the Colossus will love.
The Last Guardian reviews are out and though there are some issues with the game, overall people are very happy with the game and what it has to offer.
The Last Guardian is a great game and the Trico AI while being tricky at some times makes the creature appear to be real which adds a lot to the realism of the game.
The Last Guardian reviews on Metacritic give it a score of 83 on average. This is a good number for any title. PlayStation lifestyle gave the game 10/10 and this is what Anthony Severino has to say about the game:
When the journey comes to an end, you’ll find yourself in shock, emotionally-drained, and appreciative The Last Guardian stayed in development this long and still made it to release. The entire game’s pace is perfect.
The difficulty and challenge is high, and completely reliant on how observant and explorative the player is. Every section of the game is stunningly gorgeous – a real work of art.
The gameplay is pure perfection (aside for some clunky controls). The thematic use of the boy and the beast’s relationship and how it applies to the gameplay, the world, and the puzzles is nothing short of brilliance.
The climax is a real tear-jerker, while not going for the obvious and providing a positive, heart-warming conclusion. If there were ever a game that was deserving of the word ‘perfect,’ The Last Guardian is it.
Gamesradar+ Last Guardian reviews are also good and the game has been rated 4.5 out of 5 by Tom Senior. This is what he has to say about the game:
The Last Guardian is a fulfilling and emotional adventure, and while framerate problems must deny it the full five stars, but there is nothing else like Trico in games
Gamespot has rated the game at 9/10 and this is what Peter Brown had to say about the game:
It isn’t clear whether or not The Last Guardian means to be frustrating at times–if it’s a concerted effort to test your patience for a lovable-yet-stubborn creature. Your affection for Trico and sympathy for both characters blossom nonetheless, culminating in an enrapturing series of revelations that cements your attachment to their personalities.
Trico is the undeniable star of the show, exhibiting believable physicality and emotional range, but the boy is a valuable lesson in how to be patient and resilient when faced with unforeseen challenges.
IGN has given the game a lower score, 7/10. This is what has to say about The Last Guardian:
“The divide between the highs and lows of The Last Guardian is staggering. For every wonderful moment of absolute beauty and emotional attachment to its lifelike companion, there’s an equal and opposite baffling moment that ruins the mood with frustrating controls and camera angles. But I found myself willing to put up with all of these hiccups if it meant experiencing any of its multitude of incredibly beautiful moments.”
The Last Guardian reviews are looking great and that comes as no surprise looking at how great the game is. While there are some things about the game that could have been made better like the camera angles but we can deal with that. What do you think about The Last Guardian reviews?
