IZUNA: "Argh/Agro!" Shadow of the Colossus Review

Travelling from place to place in games tends to either be instant, or between places are many things the player can interact with, namely, enemies. Travelling in Shadow of the Colossus is not instant, and has absolutely no nothing for the player to do meanwhile. That's not exactly true; there are a couple of completely pointless things the player can keep an eye out for, but the reward is negligible: increasing the life and stamina bars.

The story is too old to be commented.

Really? Took you 5 years to beat a 8 hour game. The hell's wrong with you.

I only got a chance very recently.

I've never played a Madden game, sorry.

Well, to be fair, you do need to eat lizard tales to increase your stamina enough to get climb the temple to get to the gardens.

The horseback riding, to me, created half of the amazing experience of Shadow of the Colossus. You're riding in this open, desolate world discovering many facets of an ancient civilization. I understand how the author found it boring, but at the same time I have to question how he felt going into SotC. How much expectation did he have really? Sometimes discovering games for yourself yields a much greater reward than wanting to play what many call THE BEST GAME EVER!

I went into it with a critical mind. I do with all games apart from games from Sakaguchi, which is why it would be unfair for me to review one of his games (fan). I didn't have much expectation though, I kept hearing about it and remember fighting the first colossus long ago.
