Simply Superb. There may be no colour and it can be slow at times (in comparison to other games at least) but has a lot of heart and emotion. And frankly, that's all the game needs.

The design of the game is simple but engaging.
The controls are ok, although I found myself press space to jump a lot at the beginning but that's more me the a fault of the game because I stopped doing it after while.

One critic is that I found myself saying "this to going to be like the film "Iron Giant"" and I was sort of right. Although thinking that, the end still had a lot of emotional punch.

My opinion on the slow gameplay:
The movement of the Guardian is fine as it is. It's slow, hulking movements gives it a sense of scale. It looks and feels like a giant. And I didn't see anything wrong with the movement of the boy at all. He moved as I expected he would and almost the same as other games.

It is pretty sad that people leave the game because it is quiet and colourless. This is the kind of game that give someone a peaceful time playing and make time one think. I love it.

I loved it, i really did. But i abandoned it after 20 minutes because it's sooooooo slooooooow. It was horrible. I really liked art and the direction that story was going but it was so terribly boring that i just quit, i got better things to do than to walk through the same location over and over again.
