So true. Shadow of the Colossus is a masterpiece. It is honestly one of the best game experiences I have ever had.

Honestly. This is one of the best games I have played. It may be a bit short, but it's an amazing game. It has a ton of replayability, it has secrets if you beat the game on harder difficulties and multiple times.

This is a great game! And no, there's no other game like this out there.

It's a Colossal Undertaking! It is a boss battle, mixed with strategy-puzzle games, and adventure, mystery abound! Great game all around. It is still a game that deserves everyone's attention.

The HD remake really is the definitive version of this absolute masterclass.

It was great on the PS2 but came out very late in it's generation and was in some ways to much for the hardware to handle.
