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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shadow of the Colossus 22 Feb 2006
By steve
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A poetic, lyrical and beautiful game. 18 April 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majestic 20 April 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Shadow of the colossus is a game like no other. Think of any game you've played and it will not be simlilar to this game. Basically you are a boy/teenager/man i don't really know but anyway. You have a dead girlfriend and to revive her a voice from the heavens tells you you have to slay 16 colossi. And these things are BIG.

Graphics: Stunning. The landscape is awesome. A particular place where i noticed this is when i was riding across a land bridge to find colossus 2. And WOW. The view was stunning! You have to see it becuase I'm not going to tell you what it looks like! The only gripe I have with is that close up the characters can look blocky.

Sound: This is again, brilliant. Its context sensitive. This means that when you wander around looking for the colossus its all silent (adding to the feel that its you alone in isolation) but when you are fighting the colossus its goes all powerful and orchestral. Then finally when the skyscraper sized monster comes crashing down it brings in some sad music.

Gameplay: Although riding around can be tedious (although with the best horse animations ever!) the battles with the colossus are spectacular. I love the feeling of 'how am i supposed to kill that?' and then the huge 'AHAH!'. A word of warning though. The first colossus may seem underwhelming.

Originality: Honestly? Did you read the start of my review?

Learning curve: The controls and dodgy jumping physics can take a bit of getting used to but the game is not too easy or hard.

Lifespan: Quite a long game but not much replay value.

Overall: AWESOME GAME! BUY IT NOW!! That is... if you have some time on your hands...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple: This is a classic. 2 Mar 2006
If you're a person that has little patience, don't buy this game. If you're a person that likes to stick the disc in the machine, start a game and get straight into the action, don't buy this game. If you're a person that likes platform games with quirky characters or always buys the latest releases because everyone says they're good, don't buy this game.
Shadow of the Colossus (SOTC) is a landmark in gaming history. It is "nothing" like any other game, ever, period. It's clear from the mixed customer reviews that this game will be a cult classic as opposed to just a classic in the sense of the GTA series. Which is a shame, because all the effort that went into making this game means it deserves to be a true classic. This is intelligent gaming at it's finest. This isn't a hack & slash, tap the buttons as often as you can to win, try a 312-button-combo to beat the bad guy, pick up the best weapon there is to ensure victory type of game. No. This game captures your imagination like few others. Give this game time and it'll fill you with wonder. The landscapes you traverse in this game are truly magnificent and no other game in the history of the PS2 has ever created anything as remotely impressive as this and probably never will. SOTC pushes the boundaries of the PS2 to it's very limit. Part of the game is about travelling in this virtual world and hunting down the location of the Colossi. It's about enjoying the quirks of your horse, Agro and being amazed at how a computer generated image like this can seem to have such a lifelike personality. It's about being captured by the storyline and wondering where the end is headed (and believe me, the ending is fantastic).
