It's also the second remaster after the PS3 version. This time however the graphical assets have under gone a complete overhaul by remaster experts BluePoint Games, who have remastered other classics like the PS3 Uncharted trilogy series and Gravity Rush among many others. Purists will quite rightly question if something has been lost in translation, but if it let's you experience this classic in another way then it can only be positive, since both the PS2 original and the PS3 version are now long preserved.
The story involves a young man named Wanderer entering a forbidden land to resurrect a loved one and set a task to defeat a number of colossi. The colossi: HUGE monsters that look to be made out of fur and stone.
The land is huge, and whilst empty with nothing except ruins, you never feel bored exploring the whole place. The environment feels very lifelike. Enthusiasts of this game have quite literary spent 100s of hours exploring, looking at the environment for clues of past colossus that may have existed, and it's no wonder why, the land is beautiful.
One of the new features in this version is the Photo Mode - a common feature in Sony's first party games: it's put to great use here. Wondering around the place and activating the Photo Mode I felt like David Lean trying to shoot a perfect beautiful picture - well I guess this game might be the gaming equivalent to Lawrence of Arabia, certainly in a cinematic sense!
Speaking of the Photo mode - one of the most saddest and moving things in gaming is visiting a Colossi you defeated and find that its body is now nothing but stone and earth. You can take a picture and ponder on your actions and I found it quite thought provoking.
I have to mention your companion: a horse named Agro who is handled brilliantly by the game mechanics. There are times that I go off and lose him and calling to it really does feel like his lost, at other times you can leave him and still see him in the distance alone.
A small complaint is that the controls can be sluggish but I think that's down to feeling the struggle of the world you are in.
This is game is a masterpiece in every sense of the word, everything from the environment, music and the Colossi themselves tell a story and serves as a worthwhile reminder at a time when the Money-men from major publishers are trying to turn console gaming into online casino boxes, that gaming at its very heart can be a high artistic medium.
The rest - the music score, game characters and cutscenes/story are as good and touching as they were during the game premiere. It is what made this game an instant classic.
This game is certainly not that. It delivers a truly beautiful version, especially in 4k HDR. The game is just spectacular to look at and the game-play of the original is completely intact and unadulterated. The controls are perfectly fine as far as I'm concerned, but will probably need some getting used to for newcomers. I've tried all the new control options and they all seem to work fine to me, both old style and modern. If you've never played this game, absolutely do not let the criticism aimed at the control system put you off! Yes, they're slightly fiddly, but not at all a problem once familiarised. The incredible original soundtrack is as per the original, which certainly needs no improving.The new photo mode option is a great distraction and a welcome addition.
I don't think there is anything lacking at all in this version whatsoever, in fact it's been great playing it again and has deepened my appreciation considerably. The game plays at a relaxing pace most of the time and I find the best way to play it is to just explore and take your time enjoying the atmosphere and amazing scenery and vistas. I find it very relaxing to play and it helps me unwind. Playing it again has made me realise how unique the game is, particularly in the modern gaming climate of fast paced action/ FPS type games, driving sims etc. It's definitely not going to appeal to everyone, but if you allow yourself to be immersed in it's atmosphere and get into the pace of the game, you'll find it an experience unlike anything else. The seemingly low key story, reveals itself to be quite an epic in its later stages.
If any game could be described as having artistic merit (Personally, I think video games definitely have merit as being an art form), it would be this.
*Slight changes I have noticed, to that of the originals: Dormin when speaking, has a female voice layered over the male voice. The lighting of the game is slightly different to the originals. The bloom light effects are not as pronounced. The game does not have quite the same pastoral colour pallette. None of this bothers me, the above were probably due to technical restrictions of the original hardware. I love the new look of the game entirely!
The epic boss battles you will encounter throughout this game will literally take your breath away and the challenge you will face to defeat these large creatures will really have you on your toes trying to figure out how to bring them down.
Trust me when I say if you own a PS4 you need to own this game,the price alone is a bargain for such a well crafted remake of what is an incredible title for the system.
