Shadow of the Colossus

Gaming Evolution
5 September 2007
  • Conclusion: As soon as the game starts Shadow of the Colossus amazes with an incredible aesthetic presentation and sense of scale that can leave players in awe, far outweighing the game’s few weak points. With an expansive, vast game world and ridiculously gigantic bosses to fight, Shadow of the Colossus is without a doubt one of the most memorable gaming experiences of this year.

Expert Review

Game and Player
27 August 2007
  • Excerpt: has its share of faults: controls which can be imprecise; a camera system that will try to work against you at the least opportune moments; an occasional slowdown in framerate; I could keep going, but I won't. I can all but guarantee that as soon as you pick up the controller, you'll be so engrossed by the world that unfolds around you that these technical gaffes will soon cease to matter.

Test Shadow of the Colossus

Generation NT
12 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Nota Bene : Comme c'était le cas pour la sortie d' Ico en Europe, Sony a prévu de soigner la version PAL de Shadow of the Colossus. Le jeu sortira également dans un packaging cartonné du plus bel effet, avec incluses quatre cartes postales illustrées, qui reviennent sur les moments les plus marquants du jeu.
