It feels like there is an excellent five to six hour experience buried within Call of Cthulhu, but poorly executed genre obligations are piled on top. Cyanide clearly understands and has a love for the mythos of Lovecraft, but that can’t save Call of Cthulhu from weak gameplay, genre tropes, and hamfisted story dumps
The Last Guardian is a game that's going to give back to you what you put into it. At its 10-15 hours play time, I don't think it is a game that can be tackled lightly or by the only mildly interested. It requires an investment in the core relationship between the boy and Trico as well as some patience, both with the beast and the game's technical issues. This is an incredible experience and one that isn't for everyone, but those that embrace it may find something deeply rewarding, emotional, and memorable.
