G4TV - ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection Review

Matt Keil writes: If you have ever felt and savored that certain transcendent escapism unique to a brilliant videogame, you owe it to yourself to experience this collection. There is an honesty and care in them that is all too rare today. Fans of Team Ico already know that they’re getting two exceptional games in this collection. Added bonus video content makes the deal all the sweeter. For those who have yet to play one or both of them, here’s your chance to right a great wrong. More people should experience these titles, and as someone who generally ranks Shadow of the Colossus as his favorite game of all time, I am grateful Sony has made that possible for PS3 owners.

The story is too old to be commented.

me 2 havent played ico but even if i dont like it, playing SOTC in hd, music full blast listening to that amazing score will be more than worth it!

Yeahi couldnt agree more... im pretty much buying this for SOTC and ICO is an extra added bonus....

MaxXAttaxX2691d ago (Edited 2691d ago )

Their excuse for an 8.5 was "we played it before" and "ICO doesn't hold up with today's games".

It's called a collection you fools! lol

garos822691d ago

the gametrailer review i think is even more ludicrous, giving it a 6.8 for gameplay.

Yet these same sites eat up games like starfox 64 3d.....smh

man finding that first colossus and managing to take it down was just amazing such an exhilerating experience

I saw the stellar reviews start to roll in and thought the game might be out already! I was kind of sad to hear I'll have to wait a couple more weeks. I really can't wait to play these for the first time. From what I've seen and heard, they are undoubtedly gems.

Yeah, I never played ICO but Shadow of the Colossus is one of the most beautiful games I've ever played. Such a great experience.

spunnups2691d ago

I cannot wait for this. I had ICO and Shadow of the Colossus on PS2, but my memory card became corrupted and I never went back. :(
