Summary: The story for this game fills your mind with wonder, thinking about how everything is the way it is. I played it for the first time, and when I beat it, I had to beat it again, and again, and again. I do not know why, but it is so addicting, even though you can only do the story.
Summary: shadow of the colossus is one of my favorite games of all time. its a masterpiece. haven't played ico yet but if its anywhere near as good as shadow of the colossus then I'm in for a treat. for those who haven't played shadow i strongly recommend this, and for those who have i still recommend this. its worth having on your shelf to play again on a rainy day.
Summary: Played ICO for 15-20 mins. Rubbish. Shadow of the Colossus: A solid game were you play as a wanderer and travel through a mysterious land fighting nothing but colossi. Excellent cinematics, scenery, game-play action. Sadly, an extremely annoying camera.
Summary: In the nine years since I started gaming nothing has ever stood out to me more than these two. Ever since first hearing about them and the endless amounts of praise they received I have always considered them some sort of forbidden fruit. I almost knew I would not regret playing the, and yet some part of me always prevented me from giving them a chance. I think it was intimidation.

Summary: Every once in a while, a game comes along that is more than a game. It goes beyond the preconceived notions that we have about what a video game should look like, feel like and sound like. These gems are far more than just video games, they are experiences in and of themselves. While these treasures are rare to find, with this collection, you have two such games displayed in glorious HD for your Playstation 3 console on one convenient disc.
Summary: Ico The Good: Nice HD upgrade, clever level and puzzle design, leading Yorda around is a great mechanic The Bad: Janky animations and mechanics, Yorda's AI is really dumb, not much of a story, can be beaten in 4 hours, too much backtracking Ico is probably one of the most forgotten games in history. Being one of the first graphical powerhouses for the PS2, it proved that you don't need a complex story and characters to have a good game.
Summary: I have yet to play this game for myself, however, I have watched many of my friends play this and I was in complete amazement to say the least. Everything in the game looked mind blowing especially the intense battles! I can't wait to play it!!
