The Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection review
25 June 2012
Excerpt: Has it really been an entire decade since Team Ico first pinged our radar? In that time, the Sony development outfit has given us just two games, but they’ve been two of the most beloved, highly regarded adventures ever to appear on the PlayStation 2.

Excerpt: A decade ago, Team Ico’s stunning platforming-puzzle game Ico hit the PS2 and made waves amongst hardcore gamers who were blown away by its incredible cinematography and minimalist plot. However, while the game was a critical hit, it didn’t do too well sales-wise.
