8/10 Tom Customer review, 31st May 2018
The Last Guardian was ten years in the making, and the third game from the makers of Playstation classics Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. One of the reasons for the long gestation period of the Last Guardian was the trouble in getting the game mechanics (in which you have to try to control a large, wild beast to solve puzzles and escape an ancient fortress) to work.
Having played the game, I can a) heartily recommend it and b) confirm that it's an emotional rollercoaster. The emotional journey of the game is mirrored in Takeshi Furukawa's sensitive orchestral score, released on vinyl by game-centric label iam8bit. While large sections of the game rely on the ambient sounds of the wind and footsteps, the more-action packed and emotionally cathartic moments are married with Furukawa's sweeping compositions, swelling and ramping up the intensity of the game's story and lending it a truly heartwarming feel. Highly recommended.
