Reviewed: Shadow of the Colossus
Producer: Sony
Required System:  Playstation 2
Overall Rating:
Author: Michael Ahlf
Date: November 23rd, 2005


Shortly after the Playstation2 was released, gamers were treated to an amazing, groundbreaking title that garnered immense critical acclaim and several game-of-the-year slots, but didn't sell too many units in the US because nobody knew how to market it.

That game was ICO.

On the end of the console's lifespan, the same team from Sony that gave us ICO have given their second take, set in the same world; a concept game that consists of almost nothing but engaging boss battles, called Shadow of the Colossus.

It's an admirable effort, perhaps not as good as its predecessor, and definitely marred by being forced onto the aging PS2 hardware, but it's still an experience to be savored.
