This isn't the first time I've played these games, in fact I've played them both several times before, but this is the first time I've been able to play them in stunning high definition and with a frame rate that both games deserve, which is a steady and constant 30 FPS. That doesn't sound great by today's standards, but it is a vast improvement on the originals. Anyone who has played these games in the past, particularly Shadow of the Colossus, will tell you of the frame rate issues that plagued the PS2 versions.

I believe the frame rate issue was a victim of the over ambition of the projects, as Shadow of the Colossus in particular really did push the humble PS2 to its limits... and then some. But before I get into SotC, let us go right back to the beginning. Ico. In my humble opinion, the first game to transcend the medium of mere video game. Being conscious of not wanting to sound pretentious, I still cannot avoid calling a spade a spade, and so believe me when I tell you that Ico is art in the purest form. Ico is the story of a boy imprisoned in a castle by the elders of his village, as they believe him to be cursed. I won't delve much further into the plot for fear of spoiling what little there is of a story for you. Upon breaking free of the stone tomb he is placed in, Ico has the freedom of the castle from the beginning of the game. And he soon discovers he is not alone. Ico comes across a young girl, Yorda, who it appears has also been locked away in this vast castle prison. Escape from the castle is the premise and objective of the entire game.

Each section of the castle that you encounter is filled with puzzles, but you are not just trying to free yourself now, you have Yorda to rescue, too. And therein lies the beauty of the game.

By Dr Evil VINE VOICE on 30 Sept. 2011
ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are both arguably two of the best games that were released on the PS2 (originally released in 2002 and 2006, respectively) and have had a cult following with its loyal fans since. A few months ago Team ICO announced that HD updates of these classic games would be released and since then I have been dying in anticipation. Finally the other day my preorder arrived and after spending quite a lot of time with both games I can honestly say that these games are actually even better than I can remember them being.

Both games are extremely atmospheric, unique, eerie, beautiful and most importantly, incredibly fun to play. In ICO you are a young horned boy who must help a girl escape a prison, whilst Shadow of the Colossus you must bring down 16 gigantic and different beasts.

It is instantly obvious after trying both that more time has been spent updating the visuals on ICO than on Shadow of the Colossus - the textures and colour on ICO are a lot more rich and the graphics even look a lot more updated, whereas Shadow of the Colossus (although still looks stunning) looks to have been just upscaled rather than fully updated.

Trophy fans will be pleased as both games have their own collection to earn, some easier than other (complete ICO in 2 hours being one of them - is this even possible?) but a great addition which will surely provide a lot more replay value to both titles.

Overall, whether you have never played these games before and want to see for yourself what all the fuss is about or if you've played these games before and want to re-try them in all their HD glory then I highly recommend this game. There really are no other games out there like this and it is honestly the closest art and gaming has been.

I haven't play neither Ico and Shadow of Colossus on the the PS2.. I just purchased the collection and Iam really shocked how intelligent, deep, and artistic those two games are.. In fact Ico, it is the best videogame I have ever played... It was an emotional journey to an unbelieveable unreality world, and the same time you feel like you are in this castle... Never a game touched my emotions so gently and deeply as Ico.. This game its difficult to describe, and others in other reviews they have already done it..I just want to say, if haven't play these games buy the collection NOW!! Its a very special game!

Shadow of Colossus is also a very well-crafted game, with fantastic enviromens and very interesting gameplay. I enjoyed it very much, but I fell in love with ICO, so I want to focus there..
Anyway, team ICO is the best, Iam so impatient for their new game, "The last guardian"
Thank you very much mr Fumito Ueda for making so different, emotional, and intelligent games!

I will start by advising that I play very few games compared to the dedicated gamer, so I am not qualified to comment on the technical aspects compared to the multitude of other games. Every game I have played has some technical imperfections, these are no exceptions. Personally, I do not think they have any real affect on the gameplay.

While I have tried a fair few games in my time, only a very few draw me in to play to the conclusion. I don't sit with a guide at my elbow to race through a game in the shortest possible time. I rather prefer to play the game and find the solutions myself.

ICO was perhaps the first game I played that I can say I thoroughly enjoyed. It has an atmosphere that is unique and drew me into it. It is unlikely to satisfy dedicated dragon slaying, war mongering or platform gamers. It is a game best played at a leisurely pace, and is most definitely not a game you can just jump into for a 15 minute bash. It was the first game my wife actually enjoyed because she didn't have to battle something out every few minutes. Visually it is almost surreal and very much a work of art that made it so well known. You control the lead character who has to lead a young princess out of a deserted and decaying castle, occasionally being obstructed by spirits that seek to grab the princess and foil your escape. The puzzles are not difficult to solve.

The Shadow of the Colossus, was the game I discovered after playing ICO because I simply wanted to play another game that had a similar atmosphere. It generally goes without saying that if you enjoyed one you will probably enjoy the other. The actual gameplay is different because in this one you seek out each colossus and fight it. It is very much a David and Goliath thing.
