Diehard GameFAN: The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection

DHGF: Reviewing updated versions of revered games is a delicate process, especially if you’ve played them before. Well, I can say that I’ve never played either of the games on The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection prior to this release, and I enjoyed both immensely. The controls are a little unfriendly and take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be running and galloping through the well designed environments with the best of them. The updated visuals really do the original art direction justice and brings the worlds featured in either game alive, and the sound effects further enhance the atmosphere. The version of ICO presented here is based on the European release, so some lost features were restored, and there are also some bonus materials on the disc if you are interested in the behind the scenes aspects of Team ICO. It was all incredibly interesting as a newcomer, but veterans should appreciate the new additions just as much. And at $40, it will likely cost you less to track down the original PS2 releases of these games.

I agree here. These are 2 of the best games ever made. If you haven't tried them, you are seriously missing out. The Last Guardian is looking like it is shaping into a combination of these 2 games and should be spectacular as well.
