The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection Review | Cheat CC

For many people, it's Mario or Link who delivered that first gaming spark, but my own obsession for video games and their artistic and storytelling capabilities really took off with ICO. There is still something magical about this grand adventure of silence, and the love story rivals any other I have seen in gaming. I would very nearly proclaim that of the romances in video games, that the one between Ico and Yorda is, by far, the best-delivered and most emotionally touching.

The story is too old to be commented.

you should get it. its 40 dollars for 2 amazing experiences that go above and beyond a lot of games this gen. personally, i cant wait to replay them.

Same here buddy. I love the story of both games. The gameplay, emotion it brings, the design, everything is amazing about these two titles. I can't wait for the 3rd game by Team Ico. Very few games Team Ico release, but even fewer can compare to the quality.

My humble opinion of course.

Why is it even a question?

Just get it and I'll personally refund your money if you dont like it.

is that I actually refunded my copy of SoTC back in 2008 to get a copy of GTA IV on day one.

GTA IV wasn't bad, surely not as bad as most gaming media radicals claim it to be, but I still felt like I made an unwise decision.

Luckily, Sony listens to its fanbase and has brought SoTC back for the current generation to experience and appreciate...and for the people like me...whom should repent and then appreciate

I've never played ICO before and haven't finished SoC.

I know, I'm a terrible person...(but will be getting their platinum trophies to make up for it ^_^)

When GOW Collection was announced, I begged for two HD collections:

ICO & Shadow of the Colossus
Kingdom Hearts

I just hope SE releases KH Collection sometime.

I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed for a GTA Collection with GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas all on one bluray disc, in HD with trophies. That would be a dream come true. And price it at $40.

And I'm thinking about buying this HD Collection.

GamersRulz2572d ago (Edited 2572d ago )

this is the most value you can ever get for $40 bucks, there's nothing can top that, nothing.

Silent hill HD beats that

GamersRulz2572d ago

silent hill is great series, I loved the first 4 games, I can't wait for Downpour.

in case of ICO/SOTC HD, you get 2 classics or " 2 all time favorite" games for $40.


Ramas2572d ago

Along with the Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill HD collections, we're all going to be treated to three of the more amazing video games of this generation.

Everyone do yourself a big favour and grab all three.
