Final Breakdown


Gameplay emphasizing strategy and patience over button mashing is hard to find these days; Shadow of the Colossus delivers.


On a small TV: gorgeous. Trying to push 480p/widescreen? Bad move, the PS2 couldn't handle it.

Sound and Music:

Sony's development team hand over some real gems here too; amazing orchestral tracks to set the game's mood perfectly.


The inclusion of Hard Mode and Time Attack options help the difficulty crank up for those who want to perfect the game, but it's not unbeatably crazy for novices in normal mode.

Controls and Interface:

90% of the control system is there and well done, with only some perspective tricks to detract from it.


Buy and savor - unlike most games, this is best enjoyed a bit at a time, rather than in a marathon session.
