So, overall? I thought Shadow of the Colossus was fun, once I got past the several issues I felt I had with it. Each Colossi I killed was fairly satisfying, even if the method boils down to the same-y “stab in the head” route. Yeah, I would probably shadow a Colossus again.

Perhaps the only drawback in the game is its short duration, although this can be ignored in this price zone. I can not think of a flaw in this game and I am convinced that this is one of the games that any game lover must try and acquire.

I waited 13 long years to finally play Shadow of the Colossus. All I can say is, boy, was it worth the wait. It's undoubtedly a timeless classic that resonates even today.

This is easily one of the finest remakes by Bluepoint Games. The improved visuals elevate the experience to a whole another level that is unmatched by even some of the more recent open world games.

Shadow of the Colossus is a must buy for everyone with a PlayStation 4 console, no matter if you played the original one or not. Thanks to the huge improvements in the graphics, this new version is on a same level with most of this generation titles and it's quite a different experience from the one which was remastered for PS3.

Shadow of the Colossus is a timeless game that is timeless art, one worthy of not only of this great remaster, but of all the accolades it rightfully deserved in 2005.
