Trevor Kennedy of TNT Gaming Voice writes, "For my review of the ICO / Shadow of the Colossus Collection, I was toying around with the idea of making it a one sentence review. It would have gone something like, “Get in your car, avoiding all stop signs and stop lights, and drive to your nearest electronics store and buy this game... NOW!!” It would have gone something like that and I really do feel like that would be as much as anyone needs to know about this collection. But since I’ve never had the opportunity to review these games before, I do want to tell you just what makes these two game so special."
