Man Versus Shadow of the Colossus, Part 1

It's understated. It's like a really good IFC movie. A man/boy on a horse hauling what appears to be the corpse of a pale girl/woman silently descends into what appears to be a long-shut tomb. Sound arty? It is. But the authentic eeriness of it all, coupled with the fact that the same guys who made the terrific Ico also made this game, made Crispy Gamer give the game the benefit of the doubt.

Shadow of the Colossus was an epic game, am currently replaying it

Aclay3404d ago

I can't even remember how many times I've played through SoTC... I think I've beat it 4 or 5 times.... 2 times on Normal Difficulty, 1 Time on Hard Difficulty, I beat it 1 time doing the Time Attack Mode, and I think I completed it another time after that.

There's just something about SoTC that makes me not get tired of playing through it over and over... its got an Epic Soundtrack and Epic battles, its one of the best experiences I've ever had in gaming, and it's a game that every gamer won't be able to fully appreciate.

I hate to sound like a wuss, but SoTC has been one of the few games that I had a REAL emotional attachment with, along with MGS4 and ICO.

hey, im SoTC the type of game you play when your a kid and remember how great it is?

Or is it worth finding a way to play this game...even if it means buying a ps2?

I really want to...i just don't know if i should.

" SoTC the type of game you play when your a kid and remember how great it is? "

No. You should buy it. It's a masterpiece.

If it's worth buying a PS2 for...well, thats up to you. You should pick up Okami to, and maybe Ico, if you're going to do so.

my personal favorite game of all time, and easily one of the best games ever. A work of art-that is, Shadow of the Colossus. ^i will also replay that and RE4.

I agree that it's art. People who say games can't be art are totally wrong and haven't played this game.

I mean... there are something like 10 lines of foggy vague dialogue in this game. Yet, you can REALLY feel the emotion and it feels like it has the best story ever. It sends a message without telling you directly. This is exactly what art is.

My god.Seeing the pictures makes me want to fire up the o'l PS2
(With SOTC still inside) Seriously.Anyone who hasn't played this game is missing out on a work of art.

All hands, prepare to re-activate the dusty PS2!

(and that article was pretty damn well written too)
