  • Summary: I started playing it with some very high hopes because I had heard some pretty good things about it. It was fun for the first ten minutes though. Besides for the massive lag, it was the most repetitive thing I had ever seen. They ask you to fight these Giant Collosus things for no apparent reason and when you beat it, they send you to kill another. And there aren't really any enemies to fight except for the giants. Overall, it was BORING!

Colossal Disappointment

  • Summary: An idea so cool that it's managed to distract everybody from seeing how unrefined this game actually is. Rent before buying!
  • Pros: A truly unique idea, loads of visual style
  • Cons: Clunky controls, clunky camera, clunky pacing. And the horse... I hate the horse.

Great Idea, but disappointment!!

  • Summary: MMmmm.... I have to agree with the previous review on some of the points - This isn't the amazing experience that we were all guaranteed, is it? I had already finished off 8 of the colossi in the first two days of playing so, firstly, it's a tad short. Ok, the colossi are pretty amazing (in the majority)and the graphics engine used for them is something special.

Gutted

JCF, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I couldn't wait for this game to come out, but now having bought it I am utterly gutted. It is quite frankly boring. The scenery is not as good as I was expecting, the storyline is flimsy to say the least and the gameplay is not particularly smooth or user friendly (annoying camera angles most of the time)!

Depressione deprimente in Shadow of the Colossus

Zeikfried, Ciao
2 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Me ne avevano sempre parlato bene, 1 gioco eccezionale, fantastico, che ha lasciato il segno sulla Ps2 tanto che, assieme a ICO, sarà ristampato per Ps3...una cosa mai vista prima di allora, una pietra miliare per la console di casa Sony... L'ho trovato usato da Gamestop e, nonostante il prezzo elevato per un usato (19.98 €!) ho deciso di prenderlo...arrivo a casa, lo inserisco nella play e inizio a giocarci. Grafica non male...ho un cavaliere, ...
  • Pros: bella grafica, edizione speciale di cartone
  • Cons: un caos assurdo,gioco triste e deprimente,la storia o la si legge su internet o non la saprai mai

la noia mortale dei colossi

paula75, Ciao
3 December 2006
  • Excerpt: ...rompicapo.. e veniamo al punto. shadow è un gioco veramente difficile, bene o male sino al 7° 8° colosso si riesce nell'impresa, dopo diventa tutto molto ma molto complicato e difficile da superare...... la grafica comunque è superba e visitare i vari paesaggi è bellissimo, così come il sonoro durante la battaglia con i colossi è stupenda.... longevità media e rigiocabilità molto ma molto scarsa... gioco consifliato solo se sei un abile giocatore ...
  • Pros: colonna sonora stupenda
  • Cons: storia inesistente

Très bon... Pour une démo, mais pas pour 60€!

Blueshaft, Ciao

  • Summary: - Le test de ce titre a été effectué à partir de la version française du titre. Le peu de dialogues fait que n'importe quelle version peut être jouée sans problème. - Je sais pertinemment que cet avis fera réagir certains fans de ce titre, mais c'est MON impression, ma parole n'est pas à prendre comme sainte écriture. - Petite note : de nombreuses giclées d'hémoglobine (noire…) des colosses fait que certains très jeunes joueurs pourraient être choqués.
  • Pros: Très beau, beaucoup d'idées intéressantes, original, poétique .
  • Cons: Riduculement court, facile, des idées mal exploitées, jouabilité aléatoire, scénario à peine suggéré .
