I found it very hard to emotionally engage with the game too. I'd previously played ICO, which I *did* find as a beautiful and deeply emotional experience, which might have been the reason I originally persevered with it. In any case, it was a weird experience where I felt so distant from Wander, disagreeing with his actions and motivations, feeling it was wrong to kill the colossi but having no choice if I wanted to see what happened in the story.

Interestingly, having stuck with the game long-term (again primarily because I loved ICO and the two games theoretically fit together), and imagined and embellished the backstory around it, I care more about Wander and Mono now. I'm hoping I'll get the same effect with The Last Guardian too, eventually...

If you read my review you'd still have that ten dollars.

@BloodFalcon64 No one likes to waste ten seconds either.
