IGN - Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection Review

The Team Ico games posses a special quality. The loneliness of quiet castles, the sting of goodbyes cut short, and the courage to stand against something greater than yourself -- these feelings represent a meager few of the reasons Ico and Shadow of the Colossus earn the "special" salutation.

Oh IGN? It's a classic. Y U NO GIVE 9?

Oh well great score. Awesome to see Eurogamer and Destructoid giving it 9s and higher. So far IGN is the only score under a 9.

EDIT: Oh Gametrialers went with an 8. Woo-hoo still!

Who cares what anyone gives it... I get to play 2 games I missed out on last gen in HD glory!

Just another exclusive in my backlog.

Not complaining here. I dont care at all.

It's still the same ICO and SotC who took players into the realm of loneliness and epicess back in the days of PS2. Even if IGN give a 3 score, you can't deny how awesome it is..

You NEVER owned a ps2 if you didn't try shadow of the colossus!
Trust me even if you hadn't the chance to play it back then then by all means try this collection!!

Even today this game BLOWS out most of this gen games out of the water.

Sadly, I didn't had the chance to play ICO so I can't say much ):

Bullshit score. Two of the greatest games of all time. The score is political, not based on quality.

Drekken2651d ago

Well, I have a magazine at home that is from when SoTC released and it was a 2/5... I think it was something stupid like Blender. Just makes me laugh when you look at the other reviews for it.

I can't wait to try these out. No score can sway me.

I could not have said it better myself, these games are unreal in so many ways. I dont usualy care about scoring but these games desire 10 without doubt. What are they playing at f**** muppets.

I bet if it was mario, zelda, halo or some other milked franchise made for the 10th time they would be oh sh*t quick hand out the 10's.

Anyway thats my rant over, I just love these games and they are to me everything that is right about games.
