  • Summary: Shadow Of The Colossus is an awesome game. It didn't make it into the PS2's greatest hits for nothing. This game is so cool because you get to fight big huge creatures called Colossi and they are fun to battle. The bad thing about it is the gameplay is sort of repetitive and the horse and character are a little hard to control. The blood on the Colossi is black which is pretty cool and it only gives this game a teen rating.
  • Pros: Amazing visuals, Awesome audio, Epic boss fights, Intense action, Addictive gameplay, Just plain fun
  • Cons: Repetitive gameplay, Unresponsive controls

The game that invented a new genre

  • Summary: Shadow of the Colossus can be summed up with this: Lots and lots of hard boss battles. In an imaginative twist, SofC includes no cannon-fodder enemies, and instead puts you in the position of a Hercules-style hero out to destroy thousand-foot tall behemoths. This is not just some random hack-and-slasher. You must use your environment, your bow, and the monster itself to defeat it.

  • Summary: Ico gave PS2 owners one of the most memorable adventures of all time& unbelievably good graphics, a fantastic sound track, a fusion of adventure and puzzles, and a story which the player felt through the character's actions rather than words. Sadly, Ico never made the impact it should have but did become a cult classic with my loyal fans. After a long wait, the original developers give fans the indirect sequel: Shadow of the Colossus.

  • Summary: I know I am back tracking to a game that has been release a yr ago but I couldn't let nothing being said about shadow colossus. This is a great game with interesting storyline and game play. Get your hands on it if you haven't already.

  • Summary: Graphics 4.5 - The visuals are nothing to right home about, but the artistic direction is simply amazing. The animations are also very well done. Sound 4.5 - Sets the mood very well. The game is quiet while you search for your prey and cinematic orchestra music plays when you encounter one of the colossi. Gameplay 4.25 - Simplistic but well executed. Everything is easy enough done, but not so easy that it loses interest.

  • Summary: Shadow Of the Colossus is for the Playstation 2. You climb, stab,and swim to beat 16 colossus. you are a guy who is trying to revive your girlfreind. But first you are told to fight and defeat 16 colossus. {{{GRAPIHCS}}} This game look good but can turn fuzzy some times but. It does not really matter because when you are on a colssus and your stabbing him with your sword and when all the blood is flying around it adds alot of gameplay (and gore).

  • Summary: Okay so i was bored, it was a boring saturday so i went to the mall with my family. I found forty bucks on the ground. I decided to keep them. What an investment! I bought shadow of the colossus. I heard so much good stuff about it and i played the demo. I was enticed. This action adveture game is about a wanderer and his horsed named Agro who along with the body of a girl go to the forbidden lands.

  • Summary: This game is definately not your average fighting game or RPG or whatever. The originality is definately something to check out in and of itself. One of the coolest aspects of this game is definately the landscape. It's wonderful and the mystery behind this forbidden land is very curious and envolops an imaginative mind. The graphics are perfect for the experience of fantasy, magic, and depravety that the game obviously wishes to produce.
