This colossus has some very high points and some low points.

Great Adventure Game, Awful RPG

  • Summary: This game is nothing like Zelda, but I can see how on the surface it might fool you. There are no dungeons, little story, few characters with little personality and few puzzles. The game starts off with the main character bringing his dead girlfriend to the forbidden temple of a god-like being, the being tells him that since he has a magic sword, it's possible to bring her back to life. But there's a catch, you have to defeat these huge Statue-like things.

Boring

  • Summary: This game was a huge dissipontment. I thought it would be really fun to play but I got bored on the fourth colosus. The main things I didn't like about this game was that the area they gave you was to big. If you tried to cross the entire area it would take you at least ten minutes to get across and that is without getting lost. In addition other than the colosus their are no enimies which make the game very boring.

Very Bland

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying this is a fun game, but got boring about 4 colossi in. It has very good fundamentals, like climbing giants and what not, but that is about it. The storyline is nonexistant. You are basically trying to bring someone back from the dead, and we dont even know who she is. Also, what do these colossi have to do with this? It doesn't really add up to me. The camera and controlability is poor.

  • Summary: If like ultra-short...this one is for you. If you like interactive art pieces...this game is for you. If you like games with real depth...this one in NOT for you.
  • Pros: Graphics. Control. Overall Gameplay. Interesting concept.
  • Cons: Short. Redundant. Lack of characters (friend or foe) to interact with. No real replay value.

  • Summary: What iz this? This haz to be one of the most overated gamez in a long time. Granted, the battlez with the colosae are freakin' awesome, but everything else mostly sucks. The game almost feelz az if itz not completely finished. This waz, for the most part, a waste of my time. Although, not a horrible game in relation to some otherz, given the hype surrounding it, I wuold have to say that I am highly dissapointed.

  • Conclusion: I was looking forward to playing this game after all the good reviews I had seen, but it did not grab me like I thought it would. Perhaps it was the empty feeling in the main map. Personally i like side quests of the main plot which this game lacks..

  • Summary: Shadow of the Colossus is a great game, but it could have been better. The game itself has a great story behind it. You play the role of a hero who has to find and destroy giant colossus's. The game is a fun game, but there are some bumps in the road that should have been smoothed out before the game was launched. First of all, an adventure game has never been so easy to complete!

  • Summary: I loved Ico and still play it today and I was hoping for a sequel but this will have to do. Where Ico was an epic journey Shadow is a painful one. The game is in the same tradition as Ico as far as graphics and the look of the main character. This is a move from point A to point B, fight and repeat game. It's basically a Boss fight game which can get difficult due to poor camera and controls. The colossus are amazing to see in action that's for sure.
