I've just about finished the Last Guardian and I really like it. That's not to say that it isn't occasionally incredibly frustrating. It's such a beautiful game, and so different from anything I've played before that I am more than happy to look past some rough edges. I've played games with AI controlled partners, but I've never seen anything like Trico before. The big dog/griffin that you befriend at the start of the game is your companion throughout and getting him to work with you on these puzzles really does feel like interacting with an actual live animal. Sometimes that's frustrating when you're trying desperately to get him to do what you want, and he just cocks his head and stares at you. when you finally do succeed it feels awesome though. Sometimes the camera gets wonky and sometimes your giant friend just won't do what you want but don't let that keep you from trying Last Guardian. Working with Trico to navigate this insanely beautiful labyrinth is one of the most unique experiences I've had in a game.
