A full, detailed review of ICO and Shadow of Colossus: The Collection. Find out how the HD makeover transition went. Are these cult classics worth picking up on the PS3?
this is my fav PS3 HD collection by a huge margin. So glad they released it. Loved it.
Mine just arrived today, haven't had a chance to play yet... first thing I did was swap the cover around.
Shadow of the Colossus is amazing. ICO is quite good too.
Never played ICO, but SOTC was one of my favorites on PS2. Definitely picking this up (once I can actually find it...)
Playing this for the first time...I'm stuck on I think the 5th colossi...the one underground with an appetite for destruction. Had a hard time adjusting to the controls but I'm used to them now.
Loving the game btw...really happy they released it on ps3.
First thing i did was change the controls, so up is up and left is left! They had it all reversed. Same thing with the PS2 version. Its one of those rare games for me, that you can go back to and play after completing it. Nowadays when your done with a game, you dont ever really wanna return to it.
I had to reverse the controls too. The game certainly hasn't aged very well in that department and it can be very frustrating at times. But it's still an incredible and beautiful experience. The 5th colossus is a flying creature. I think you are stuck on the 6th colossus. That one gave me a hard time too, because I thought I had to climb up his arm but the path was obstructed. I found the solution through blind luck while trying to recover some health. I'm not going to spoil the fun for you, let me just say that's one mighty beard he has. ;)
that monster in the pic took me while to take him down what an amazing game
It's the 3rd... I'm on that one and having a difficult time going about it. I get his tummy destroyed but then the climb after that gets me every time. Been waiting a long time to play these games. I only wish it would have dropped a month before it did... now everything is out all at once and my time is spread out on like 4-5 games at once =/
I just started Ico last night for the first time since I originally played it because of a random trip to blockbuster in 2001... I walked that aisle for 25 minutes and couldn't decide.. and then i saw the horns and the windmill.. and was hooked.. i rented it for 10 days straight... and loved every second of it.. it looked beautiful then, and it looks so much more beautiful now.
