  • Summary: If I were to actively look for a game worse then this, and I have, I wouldn't find it. It is, without a doubt, an empty game with the same fight repeated sixteen times over and over again. I can't say anything bad about the characters or the story, because there isn't a story or a character in this game.

  • Summary: I was late to the party on getting a PS3. I finally got one this year, and this is the very first game I bought for it. When a game is so good that it makes you want to hold onto it and replay it on your current gen hardware, you know you've got something special. The sound. The atmosphere. The lonley feeling. The way the music lifts and ramps up while you fight something so big that I was late to the party on getting a PS3.

  • Summary: A Playstation classic for sure. I'll start by admitting that many gamers may not get into the game but I'd say that it can be appreciated by everyone. Just like how some people can watch a classic movie and understand what makes it great but not enjoy watching it, everyone can play Shadow of the Colossus and see why its hailed as a masterpiece. As most people will describe, its A Playstation classic for sure.

  • Summary: Few games will give you a short playtime but lasting impression like sotc. Few games will ever be such a masterpiece like this one. You are on an epic journey from start to finish and you never feel less than epic playing this game. It is for its best interest that this game has little story fed to you but rather lets you interpret it mostly the way you want to. An experience that must be Few games will give you a short playtime but lasting impression like sotc.

  • Summary: i found that there wasn't much to this game, it was just running around and killing giant colossi which i found to be a tiny bit bland at times, but still a blast. i loved the story to it and practically the whole game had me on edge, i ended really caring about these characters that were involved. I think Shadow of the Colossus is an AMAZING game and i loved every little bit of it.

  • Summary: I was very disappointed with this game, especially after how much I enjoyed "ICO". One thing I liked about the game is that the story isn't as subtle or minimalistic as it was in "ICO". I feel like this allowed me to get more involved in the game's world. The scenery here can also be very impressive at times even with the graphical aging that has taken place. I can see why this game is I was very disappointed with this game, especially after how much I enjoyed "ICO".

  • Summary: Shadow of the Colossus, might be one of the best games that i've ever played. The game starts presenting you what appears to be a simple objective, slay the sixteen Colossus, that live in this land. It may start looking shallow already, but it starts becoming a lot more complex, and intriguing, as you progress through the game. The game carries in between each moment a level of Shadow of the Colossus, might be one of the best games that i've ever played.

  • Summary: A Genuine experience. While some aspects don't appeal to all (Camera and Controls) the game forgets these flaws and delivers an absolutely brilliant plot packaged with arguably the best boss fights ever seen in videogames, neatly topped with a minimalist art design which immediately impacts the players emotions and continues to throughout. Too repeat myself, the boss fights in this A Genuine experience.
