It's more than what I hoped for. For my next playthrough I plan on exploring wherever I want, instead of exploring while on the path tothe next colossus. I'm going to try to go all 16 time attacks first so I have the lizard/fruit map. Once I beat it enough to get to the secret garden and stuff, i'll start hard mode.

Have fun. The HD-ness of the PS3 version makes an already good-looking game look even better. I always had super fun exploring despite the map being void of all enemies but the colossi and occasional flock of birds, lizards, and what not.
Also, is Agro not just the coolest damn horse or what?

If Agro wasnt in the endng i'd probably shed a tear, but in the end, everyone is alive, even if one was turned into a baby. bittersweet ending right there.
Did you know that when Mono first picks up the baby if you press different buttons the baby will cry in different ways? :)
I saw that on GameFAQs years ago and it blew my mind when I tried it out. There's your SotC/ICO parallel right there as far as I'm concerned.

I did a few time attacks, I could not get the 11th one for the life of me. I can get him to fall with no problem, but I assume I need to land on him so I can stab sooner to make it in time. He shakes Wander too much, which I dont remember having a problem with before...

I've never played the game, is there any incentive for doing the time attacks? I know that there's stuff to increase your health or stamina, but you don't get that from time attacks. I also know that you don't really get much of anything besides your sword, bow, arrows, and Agro.

There's actually a few unlockable weapons I think. I don't remember how exactly to get them but I'm pretty sure they're all references to ICO, and just a sword.
And I would recommend this game highly. It's my favorite game of all time, and it's just one of those games that everyone needs to experience, IMO.

I think there's trophies for beating the time attacks in the game for the PS3 version, I'm not sure. It's been so long since I played it on the PS3. :(
