CVG Writes: "So, all you do is fell enormous beasts, one after the other. Not the most complicated of set-ups, yet Shadow of the Colossus is one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking and imaginative experiences on PS2."
It's truly one of the best, if not THE best, gaming experiences I've ever had. I simply can't wait for what Team ICO brings to the PS3!
Awesome list, but I would add the ending with those, it was like :O.
I am also eargerly awaiting another installment into the same universe hopefully from Team ICO. The most beautiful experience on PS2? I'd say the best moments I ahve ever spent gaming were while playing this game. And ICO. Argh, I love those games. Sony's first party developers rock the world.
Sony needs to add this game as a psn download. This is without a doubt one of the best games in history. So simple yet so incredible. Every single colossus battle has its unique moments. I am hopeful for a team ico announcement at TGS this yr. The game will probably be a next yr game and will only work to strengthen the PS3 line up for next yr
oooh....... Please Team ICO make a SOTC2 PS3 PLEASE!!!
Their next title, coming to the PS3, is based on Norse mythology? I read it somewhere, don't know if it's confirmed or not, but that's what's been said :3
McFadge, that was in a UK PlayStation magazine. It was wrong. I was involved with a community and we suggested the early ICO 3 (placeholder name) screenshots were related to Fenrir a Norse mythological tale of a wolf tied to a pin, but it was all speculation. And I doubt it anyway, becuase that too much like stealing. I read an interview with Fumito Ueda, from May at the norse gaming convention, he is a great man. So humble unlike Miyamoto and Western developers. I am sure he'd would be flattered he has fans, but I think he wouldn't understand why.
Shadow of the Colossus 2 for the ps3 will definitely be a must buy. I just hope the bosses look different. Boss battles got a lil boring after awhile.
was the search for 'some' of the colossus as I got lost both times I flipped it. It was lonely but your right, its a must buy should they make it.
the whole game is 1 big great moment!! true art. Such an amazing game.
I nearly cried when my horse didn't make the jump. Yeah I said it, CRIED !
SPOILER Yes that was sad, but we know he makes it so it is okey. People make fun of "Emotion Engine", that was name of PS2 proccesor, but if you think a little you can really see that there were a lot of games on PS2 where emotions were very strong. Like ICO or SOTC, part that you just mentioned.
Ok, now I'm going to sound like a real skirt, but in ICO I never liked to run with Yorda, I would usually walk because the animation when you started running looked like it would hurt her shoulder. Hey Yorda was a nice chick, I didn't want to hurt her.
Team Ico is so good at that... Physical emotion is a very strong thing...and they know that. If they remade this same game with better graphics and released it on the PS3 today... ...it would sell SO WELL, with the right marketing, of course.
I thought it was just me who did sad roleplayign like that. I would also do that. Not cus it hurt her shoulder but becuase it was rude of me to be dragging her about. HAHA, such a loser. Nevermind, the game was well worth the time I invested. EDIT: Why a remake, when Team ICO are making a brand new PS3 game. And I think if you were to update the graphics for Shadow of the Colossus it woudl crush it. The crudeness of it really complimented the art style, and what an art style, it's the best art style I ahve ever seen in a game. EVER.
i think im going to go and buy this game reasons: it seems that it is a GREAT game, help the developers (with my money :P) and i like those kind of games.
It really is an amazing game, any PS3 owner MUST play it.
Everyone should play this game, it's something completely different. :) I don't think money is a problem for them since Team-ico is a first party developer, but the more people that buy and play team-ico's games the bigger the chance is they will create more awesomeness in the future.
Unfortunately I missed out on this title... I might rent it out and see if I can borrow someone's ps2...
GamesBlow said that they (Team ICO)are working on 3 games if i remember correctly. One os definitely PSN game and he saw big PS3 game. He said water is used as main factor in game. He said a lot more but it was 6 months ago so iv forgot.
yawwnn, talking in third person...
It's coming to the PS3 too. (Sequel)
Methinks it'll be a prequel to SotC or a sequel for Ico, seeing as it's set before Ico. Then again, they COULD put one between both of them
Shadow of the COlossus is giving you the backstory behind ICO, Ueda finally said, but he didn't say it becuase he alwasy wants people to make their own judgements on his games, and they have to work out what it's about. We will never get answers about the Dormin, or the black figures (the same thing maybe).
one of the best game I ever played on the ps2... and you can fell the beauty of this game when you play it... even if you had to get use to the control and the camera angel at first but when you get use to it, it is perfect...
"And remember kids...each of you has your own guardian camera angel" Sorry dude...had to say it.
8 of the 10 were 8 of the 16 bosses...
7 of the 10 were 7 of the 16 bosses check out the time trials for quick runs on youtube. those are amazing. they all can be beat in a few minutes.
Could you imagine a Shadow of the Colossus on the PS3?
SotC is one of the greatest games I've ever played, this game doesn't get enough love. Playing the game fills you with a sense of wonderment and excitement like the way great nintendo titles used to. This game is a must-have for any PS2 owner. Games like this remind me why I own a console. I actually felt sad sending all those glorious beasts to their graves. The level of skill that was used to breath life into the colossi was truly amazing. Killing them felt like the equivelant of destroying an artistic masterpiece. I can't wait for the next Team Ico project to come out on PS3. I'll be picking it up day one. Team Ico are hands down one of the best devs working in the industry today.
another amazing playstation exlusive which to me shows why the Playstation has always been best for variety in games rather than the same old alien shooters road.
I just bought this game through Amazon. Due to this article. I never had a chance to play it. I can't wait to receive it.
