Recently there have been many arguments where God of War and Shadow of the Colossus were compared under different criteria. Here Team ICO Gamers take both games and examine them for their looks, story, characters, enemies and gameplay.
I was personnally sad when Shadow of the colossus won but both games deliver greatly to a gaming experiance. Its just that God of War's Brutal kills are just so awesome thats what made me like the game the more than Colossus, anyway great find.
Both games are amazing but i feel that Shadow of the Collosus, was a bit better because of the intensity of fighting those huge bast*rds.
Nothing is compared to G o d of W a r. Its the best game ever...
Both are in my top 5 games of all time.
wow well honestly I don't think you can really Compare GOW to SOTC..both are great games..either way
But SOTC..boss fights felt more EPIC than those of GOW...
those are two of my favorite games ever...so I win cuz I own them both so I can play them whenever I want...XD
It's like comparing two gods. Both are unique titans of their own but if I have to choose, I say gameplay of SOTC and story/ characters of GOW.
I only picked up Colossus a few weeks ago. It was like $10 so how could I say no? Anyway it's a cool game, but it has some pretty enormous flaws that prevent it from competing with the likes of God of War I think. The concept of SOTC is great, graphics are great, gameplay is unique and it has a lot going for it, but the controls are awful and the gameplay ends up being seriously repetitive after the 3rd or 4th colossus goes down. It's still great despite those flaws, but GoW was nearly flawless imo.
But God of war is way more polished, and better variety. The controls in SotC is sort of laggy too.

Shadow of the Colossus is the best game in the history of MANKIND.
i rented both games. SoTC was amazing. if they made a sequel for ps3 with ps3 graphics fighting the colossi o.O system seller imo. too bad it wont ever happen...sniffle.
GoW2 however, i got hosed. i played it til the part where you have to bring the trojan horses alive and they pull the land blah blah. well, for some reason the chain that you walked out on, disappeared after the horses came to life. i had absolutely no way to get back onto land. but all is well, a buddy of mine let me borrow GoW2 the other day and i can get back to playing it after Heavenly Sword. woot for me.
but from my experience with GoW 1 and SoTC, i have to go SoTC. it was like nothing ive ever played before and definitely has stuck with me.
And it is a very hard decision between which is best. The only problem here is many people might pick god of war simply because not many people played Shadow of the Colossus.
See, Shadow of the Colossus falls in the same category as Ico, Okami, and Vagrant Story. It's the column called "Legendary games that people should have played but not many did".
Honestly, Shadow and God of War are both amazing creations. And fanboyism aside, are games that should NOT be missed out on
Why is this being brought up?
Why don't you STFU and GTFO?!
I'll get to it after you ESAD
I plan to get both of these next month. I'll see for myself then.
If you like shadow then check out ICO
God Of War is one of the best Hack-n-Slash, button Mashing games out there. Along side Devil May Cry series, Heavenly Sword, etc. But at the end of the day, that's all it is.
SOTC is fully original and realized. There are no enemies to fight your way through to each boss. There's no button-mashing. You can't even put SOTC in any catagory because there's no gameplay like it.
