Shadow of the Colossus , released on October 18, 2005, made us rethink what a video game can be, and Kow Otani’s soundtrack left a powerful imprint on an already impactful experience.
A true one of a kind game, a timeless classic.
I remember I bought it for PS2 thinking it looks like an RPG. I had never seen its trailer and those days internet was not very fast in my country. I popped in the disk and started thinking looks ok there is horse and sword, cannot combo. the moment first colossus appeared, my jaw dropped. One of the best gaming moment of my life. This is why I prefer not too watch too many trailers...I had similar experience with Shadow Hearts 2: Covenant/God of War/FF X/Okami and many more...
Agree mate, PS2 is the undisputed champ, so many great gaming memories.
God of war and metal gear solid did it for me mate. Fell in love with playstation from that day.
Yup, every time you first encounter a new colossus was so daunting and yet killing them felt so sad.
Feels like it’s been 15 years since it went on sale. I missed it when it was a ps plus game and I’ve checked every sale since and still nothing :(
And an absolutely perfectly fitting sound track.
I can't wait to play this again on PS5.
The PS4 Pro version had a 60fps performance mode as well so you'll have a 60fps option on PS5.
One of the very best games of all time.
Games from the PS1 and and 2 era have been a source of practically endless discoveries and conversations. SoTC and ICO are 2 games I can truly call masterpieces.
Huge and empty. I think the vast open world is actually contrary to the games design and works against it. I remember exploring every nook and cranny thinking that I'd find lots of things but there was almost nothing anywhere.
I'm happy to say that this game made 4 generations of consoles.
