The Last Guardian | Review | Gaming @ The Digital Fix

The Last Guardian is the story of a boy and his cat/bird/chimera. A PS4 exclusive, it comes from the same studio who brought us ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. Ten years in the making, does it live up to the hype? The Digital Fix stocks up on kitty treats and bird seed, and heads into the ruins to find out.

"I can’t fully grasp why it felt like such an ordeal to play. "

The archaic controls, odd pace and reliance on Trico made it an ordeal. It's saved you its charm but that will vary from person to person.

Nyxus2679d ago

I would say the reliance on Trico (and his reliance on the boy) is kind of the point of the game.

Gazondaily2679d ago (Edited 2679d ago )

Yes but the way it translates into the game isn't exactly flawless courtesy if Tricos responsiveness (or lack thereof). The charm plays a big part in how much you enjoy the game. If you don't find Trico to be this loveable little chimera then it's just going to be a slog playing the game.

not click bait i feel the same way i haven't finished it bedcause it's infuriating controls bug me too much

UCForce2679d ago

People have different opinion about this game which I understand.

Fishy Fingers2679d ago (Edited 2679d ago )

Seems to split opinions which is understandable considering it's not a traditional game/genre and has some 'unusual' mechanics.

Can't conclude which side of the fence I'm on yet as I'm waiting to pick it up a bit cheaper.

Are you in the UK? I'll send you my copy if you want for free.

itsmebryan2679d ago

Wait, how do you get down votes for offering to give a total stranger a game for free? That is a nice gesture from one gamer to another. The people that gave the down votes please explain.

Fishy Fingers2679d ago

Very generous of you! But really there is no need, trade it in and get yourself something to enjoy :D

Cheers though!

It's a great game, one that I keep thinking about and one of my favorite experiences this year in a game.
Yes the camera is a little wonky but once you figure out you just need to use a light touch it's really a non issue, for the exception of a few hallways. If you don't have patience this game is not for you. Trico is not very responsive at first much like a puppy or baby would be. But once you build a trust with Trico it's just awesome to see. Is it at the level of this years near perfect Inside...well no but that's ok. More like a 8.8 not a 5!

That's great news. Hopefully the Coalition can smooth some of those edges from the last Avowed reveal.

Well I'm annoyed. Especially at all the ppl who said the graphics sucked. It's your fault they probably shifted the game to unreal so it could look more fancy for you. I was ok with it and hoping to actually play it sometime soon. Now it's like 99% chance it's delayed.
Edit: effing graphics whores

What the hell are you talking about dude? Avowed was already in development using the UE5. The Coalition is just helping Obsidian in the transition to its latest version (5.3)

MrBaskerville15h ago(Edited 14h ago)

Probably not even that big of a difference. Coalition might only have helped because they got a deadline to meet.

Unreal isn't nearly as bad as Unity when you update a project. Though it obviously depends on the project. But unity generally gets an aneyurism if you threaten to update, where Ue is usually less stingy.

Reaper22_14h ago

In excited for Avowed and Gears 6.

Fishy Fingers16h ago

It already was Unreal 5, its just moving to the latest build.

CantThinkOfAUsername7h ago

Latest build is 5.4 and it's better than previous iterations, particularly in animation and performance.

Lightning771d ago

Apparently the latest build looks way better graphically. This rumor from Jez Cordin (who's credible) pretty much confirms it.

Interested in seeing more on Avowed in a few weeks.
