Summary: 2 AWESOME GAMES!!!! i never really played ico but its really good and entertaining. shadow of the colossus is an amazing game that i played back on the ps2 and its just as amazing but even better with the enhanced graphics. the disc even came with a behind the scenes of these 2 games and plus another one.
Summary: I always wanted to try these games out. got it at a good price, shadow is very fun addictive and im not a big fan of these kinds of games but it was awesome 4/5.ico is a big puzzle not epic like you may hear but still really good, some control issues but I still give it 3'5/5.
Summary: First of all, SotC is a 5 star game all day long, and I know most people feel the same way about Ico. So if you don't own/ have never played either, then ignore my rating and click Add to Cart. But I'm not rating the original games so much as the value that has been added by reissuing them in this format. Yes, in the absence of backward compatibility it was a necessity, I guess, but it was also an opportunity to improve the games instead of just cashing in.
Summary: The contents are the two games created so far by Team Ico, instruction booklets and serigraphs printed in both discs are very beautiful. This two games are accompanied by a small book full of illustrations and sketches, also brings four or five never seen before TLG images.
Summary: Do yourself a favor and experience these masterpieces if you haven't already. Heck even if you played them, they are now remastered for the PS3 on one disc. There's quite nothing like Fumito Ueda's brilliance in game design. Gems like these are few and far between.
Summary: Growing up my older brother played Shadow of The Colossus. As a young lad I was blown away by how different and unique this game looked and played. Now that I have it in it's full glory, I can enjoy it even more so along with my brother can. He can borrow the game any time he likes, as long as I am not busy traversing the colossi. As for ICO, I found out about the game through MEGA 64's skit. I knew that I should give this game a try after watching the game play.
Summary: If you have not played this game in PS2, then you absolutely MUST play it on PS3. It is one of the best games I have every played. The quality is extraordinary and the story rather captivating. I can play this game over and over without getting bored. Forget the minions, this is all about boss fights. ONLY boss fights, actually. But the travel to get to each of them is breath-taking, and makes this game one-of-a-kind and a MUST HAVE for gamers.
Summary: Remember back when "Artisic" games involved actual gameplay and not running around a space looking at pretty things? These two are undying relics of that age. Ico, more of a puzzle game than a action game, has you literally holding the hand of a blind girl, trying to lead her out of a castle complete with traps, and shadow creatures trying to take her back.
