Shadow of the Colossus remains faithful to the 2005 release, down to its problems. It masterfully utilizes the new hardware to amplify its immersion, yet remembers to maintain the importance of the original ideas and message. Even with its flaws, it's a game that everyone should experience.

Shadow of the Colossus is the gold standard of video game remakes for this generation, period. Bluepoint Games deserves all the credit for offering a remake worthy of the praise placed upon the original, and as such have given an entirely new audience license to experience one of video games most exceptional titles. Forget the cynical rhetoric around "cash grabs" and easy franchise milking with texture update "HD remasters." Instead, I hope this game becomes enshrined as a new sort of video game remake renaissance in which new and old audiences alike can experience classic titles as if they were brand new again. However you need to do it, make sure to get your hands on a copy of Shadow of the Colossus on PS4.

Shadow of the Colossus for PlayStation 4 isn't just any remake, it is the glorious return of a beloved classic that left its mark on video game history for decades - and its light still shines bright today, as Bluepoint Games revived the PS2 masterpiece with excellent new graphics and technology, while core and content remain unchanged. Traditionally, it's only the controls and camera which drag it down just a little bit.

It's great to be able to play a PS2 classic again like Shadow of the Colossus. The graphic remasterización can be more or less questionable but without a doubt it manages to give a new flavor to a title that deserves all the awards that did not obtain in his day.

Bluepoint’s terrific reimagining of Shadow of the Colossus is one for the history books. Not only is it the best video game remake ever made, it has also set the bar incredibly high for future remakes.
