Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
In a world of identikit sequels and licenses this game stands alone. Cast as the mysterious Wanderer you are charged with destroying sixteen colossi – gigantic and apparently invincible stone monsters. Each colossus has a weak point though and by climbing onto them and exploring them like moving castles you may have a chance to save your sweetheart.

The lowdown:
This game really does look and plays like nothing else, with a game world as large as the colossi which you can only explore via your trusty horse Argo. The graphics are fantastic, both technically and in terms of artistic design, and the melancholy atmosphere utterly unique. The colossi look particularly amazing, as you reach barely to the toe tops of most of them. The method of killing each one is perhaps not quite as varied as it could be and it’s a shame that there’s not anything to do in the overworld except travel to the next colossi, but the overall gaming experience is unparalleled.

Most exciting moment:
Your first sight of a colossus, as you realise the end-of-level boss is the level.

Since you ask:
This game is by the same team behind cult hit ICO, although a connection between the two stories is only evident at the very end of the game…

The bottom line:
One of the most beautiful and original video games ever made.

Shadow of the Colossus is the second game to come from Sony's Studio 1, the same team responsible for 2001's cult hit ICO. Whilst the jury is still to whether this is a sequel or a prequel to ICO, it can be seen as its spiritual successor as both games share a similar style, theme and control dynamic.
SOTC begins with a cut scene portraying the journey of Wanda, our main character, on the back of his sturdy steed Agro. The landscape Wanda must traverse is flanked by deep chasms, towering mountains, he passes through a dense forest which gives way to reveal a expansive bridge, leading to a lofty shrine in the middle of an ancient cursed land. In the shrine we discover that Wanda is not the only burden that Agro has had to bear. He also carries the body of a girl, Mono, who has a 'cursed fate' as she has been sacrificed for unknown reasons. Wanda takes the lifeless body of Mono and lays her on an altar. We discover that Wanda has travelled to these cursed lands after stealing the body of Mono and a powerful 'ancient sword' in an attempt to restore Mono to life. What stands in Wanda's path to his objective are 16 giant creatures scattered throughout the capacious land: The Colossi.
At this point control is handed over and Wanda sets out with Agro, guided by his magic sword to find his first Colossus. These huge lumbering beasts are the main attraction in this game. Most totally dwarf Wanda, and the prospect of attempting to take them down armed only with a sword and a bow is an intimidating one. But Wanda does have other tricks up his sleeve; At times the environment can be utilised, and Agro can also be an essential companion in your fight. The Colossi take on many forms, most are bipedal, some are aerial, and a couple of battles take place in water.

This is my game of year, in the same way that ICO stopped me from playing MGS2 stone dead, this game has got to me in a very real sense. The story as you've probably read countless time is about our hero's struggle to resurect a girl and standing in his way are the Colossi. These are 16 of the biggest most wonderfully created creatures I've ever seen.
I am currently on my 12th colossi and loving every bit from the exploration (look out for the desert). I'am told the ending somthing very special indeed.
Well done to sony and team ico this is by far the essential purchase of 2006.

Shadow of the colossus may be the best game ever. . Not because it has an amazing epic story. Not because its one of the best animated games ever. Not because its amazingly realistic. But because it makes you really feel like your in the game, like your a part of the world. The scenery is gorgeous, and the land is MASSIVE, and detailed, you can spend hours exploring the lush world and still find new areas. The beasts are huge, and are levels in themselves, completing one is like finishing a game. Add to this the amazing soundtrack, the addition of hard mode, time attack mode, and hard time attack mode with unlockable items. This game could never get boring.

In a lowdown:

The good:

+Biggest fully interactive monsters in any game ever
+Huge, detailed world with many places to try to reach
+Amazing soundtrack
+Perfect animation
+Varied range of colossi
+Infinite replayability

The bad:
-Camera can be a bit of a pain, but is still MILES better than alot of games
-you may get addicted and lose all social ties in life.

Basically, BUY THE GAME!.

enjoy

Shadow of the Collosus is a original concept for a game, which is quite a rare thing these days. The game has you riding accross a huge landscape on horse back, guided by sunlight reflected off your magical sword. You must find and destroy 16 massive beasts which roam this massive land. Why? To revive a dead girl. And repeat. You follow the same routine for each and every collosi, with no other foes inbetween, which is just as well. If the developers would have tagged on some enemies inbetween the main battles it just would have been an unneccessary diversion and would have fractured the pace of things.

Dont expect the game landscape to be anything like, say, San Andreas for example. It is huge,yes, but your not going to be compelled to explore every nook and cranny of this environment.

It can be a pain to find the collosi too, you are often led to sheer cliff faces or immpassible gorges and get lost in this enormous world which can be a chore to get out of. Your trusty steed is a joy to ride and feels like you are actually riding a horse.

The game really comes alive when you eventually come across one of the various collosi, which range from massive lumbering, hairy trolls, to giant birds and smaller bull sized terrors. You somehow have to mount these beasts, which is where some of the puzzling elements come into the game. For example you might have to scale some ruins and jump onto the collosuses' sholders from above. You then have to grip on for dear life unless you will fall off for sure. The collosi have various weak points dotted around their bodies which wou must stab to kill the collosi.
