  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The alternation between empty exploration and boss battle may not appeal to all

  • Excerpt: Much like its predecessor Ico, this game, for me, is huge and beautiful but ultimately fundamentally flawed in the gameplay department. The storyline is relatively weak for this game, but that is of little importance.

Overall, not a bad action game with puzzles

  • Excerpt: This is a great game I found on the Playstation 2 and the word 'Colossus' for me has double meaning. It not only describes the monsters you fight in this game but also the game itself as it's huge.

  • Excerpt: When this game was released I had such high expectations for it, its been a long time since I have got excited about a new and unique game. I was getting bored with the countless updates and sequels available and this was billed as a truely unique title.

A total waste. Time, money, a total lost opportunity.

  • Excerpt: Sequel to the cult and somewhat hauntingly beautiful puzzle game Ico, Shadow of Colossus is a poignant tale of a young knight sorrowful tale of sacrifice as he combats with strange creatures called Colosuss in an attempt to save his love.

  • Summary: It's quite difficult to review this game, coming from the same developers who created the incredible ICO, so many hard core gamers have waited long and hard for Shadow, a game everybody thought would be a an absolute gem, a work of video game art.
