      This is a Really Really BAD Game

      I don't usually write reviews, but this game is so bad that I felt inspired to write one. I hope to save some people a few bucks. I know there are alot of good reviews out there on this game. I am baffled by that. I have to believe that those people did not play the whole game. I believe they must have only played the first couple of monsters. Because up to that point, the game was somewhat acceptable. And the nice visuals might have overwhelmed them. But if they continued playing they would find that this game violates almost every rule of good gaming - and some that I didn't even know could be violated. It does have a couple redeeming qualities: It looks good; and it has some cool monsters. But that is where it ends. The game play is awful, the navigation is awful, the controls are awful, the repetitiveness is awful, the map is awful, the story is awful, and the ending is awful. The game kept taking me to new heights of aggravation. If the controls and navigation had been good, then the game would have taken about 5 hours to beat. So it feels like they intentionally made the controls and navigation bad so that it would take longer to finish the game. That is a bad mistake. I would rather have had fun for five hours, than aggravated for 20 hours. I could write a book about all the flaws in this game, but to save time, let me just focus on one issue as an example: The Navigation. The game gives you three tools to help with that: A sword (which points to your destination), a horse (to travel on), and a map. All three of them suck. The sword points you in a general direction, but once you get close, or get in the mountains, or the woods, it fails. It usually leads you to a location where you have a few choices (like go left around the mountain, go right around the mountain, or go down a path thru the mountain). There is nothing telling you which path to take, and usually taking what looks like the logical path does not get you there. And in fact takes you a long way that often ends in a dead end, where there is no way to go but back out the way you came so you can try another option. Its like getting thru a maze without an overhead view of the maze - because the map is worthless. I have never seen such a worthless map. And on top of that, navigating back out thru the woods or thru the mountain on your horse is painful because the controls while riding the horse are so terrible. I often found myself quitting the game and restarting from the staring location, just so I wouldn't have to navigate back out and circle back around on the horse. I could go on and on about other flaws in the game. But I hope this gives you a sufficient taste. I post this bad review because it is getting so many good reviews, and I hate so see game developers encouraged to keep producing bad games. So if you are considering this game, please be sure to read other review out here. I'm not the only one trying to warn you. Good luck, and enjoy your (other) gaming!

      If you've never played shadow of the Colossus then this graphics redo should be at the top of your list. The intended purpose of this re release was to enhance the graphics and all around game play for new generations and they deliver with a few extra touches. For instance, I didn't expect an audio upgrade or different voice acting but it was added to this project. Having played the original ps2 version and 3d rerelease on PS3 I have to admit I'm not a fan of this but given that the game isn't dialogue heavy this most definitely isn't a deal breaker. With additional graphics settings this game can be enjoyed to it's full potential on any hdr TV. As far as any other changes to the game go, there really aren't any notable ones but that's good. A classic like this hardly needs a reinterpretation. Though I will say this, I don't believe you can top the initial 3d rerelease on PS3. Granted it was just a ps2 upscaled port the 3 dimensional feel made this game pop but unfortunately the shift from 3d to higher resolution has been decided. But definitely worth checking out if you get the opportunity. Controls seem a bit more clunkier than I remember and our protagonist seems clumsier too but that may be due to the graphics retouch. But for a game that has survived two generational ports I'd expect no less. It isn't bad but worth noting. And that's why I give it 4 stars. This was a tough rating but I stick with it. The price point is right, visually and audibly they seemed to achieve what they set out to do but I can't shake the feeling of having enjoyed myself more on the previous iteration. That said I'm thankful this work of art has survived another generation.

      More than a makeover

      I originally played SotC when it first came out on PS2. I was astounded at the animation and the sheer spectacle of the game. The hopeless romantic in me also fell for the idea of “how far would you go for love?” When I see the collossi towering above the wanderer in HD, I find myself revisiting those fond memories and feeling as though the game always looked this way. This is not to diminish the accomplishments of the developers, who have managed to recreate the forbidden land in stunning detail. I was worried that with all of the overhaul the soul of the game would be lost, but the game was made clearly as a labor of love and very little has been altered from the original. The UI has been streamlined, and the controls have been made to me a bit more intuitive by placing the jump button on X rather than Triangle. For old fans like me, there are numerous challenges to chase like time trials and harder ways of taking down each of the mighty collossi. The real joy for me has been sharing this game with my wife and watching her marvel the same way I did all those years ago. If you’re looking for something drastically new, there isn’t much here for die hard fans of the game outside of the few new challenges. However, if you have never played this game before, or you just felt nostalgic and want to share this classic with a loved one, then I highly recommend this game for a unique experience in story telling, gameplay, and boss battles.

      A Playstation Classic

      I have never played the original game on the PS2 or the remastered on the PS3 but, over the years I have always heard of this game and/or seen it mentioned in the media and content that I consume on a daily basis. I have always heard of how this game and of how it influenced the production and artistic direction of a lot of future games,movies, and media and how much impact this game had in inspiring future projects. Now after getting my hands on the remake and after playing it, I see why this game was ever praised to begin with. If I could compare this game to other media like movies or music, this would be one of the many epics of the gaming world, just like LOTR is to movies or Bach is to music, this game is a classic. I don't want to make it sound like I am on the bandwagon hype just because this game got re-released (which truthfully, I was) and I just wanted to be part of the crowd. You might be thinking (as I also did at a time) that this game was just over-rated and that this game only served to please a niche genre to a niche group of people that just couldn't let this game go, but considering the fact that this game got released on the world's most purchased console, up against other great games of its time, this game had its moment and it should of just faded into one of many games that came out long ago and in the end should of be forgotten, yet this one managed to stand the test of time and still manages to be an epic game in today's standards, this game deserves all the praise it has gotten then, and all its getting now.

      The argument for video games as art

      Shadow of the Colossus was the exemplar of how video games could be treated as art back in 2005. Between the music, visuals, gameplay, and minimalistic yet stunningly deep narrative SotC proved that games were more than mere entertainment. They could make you think and feel; they could move the audience through an interactive media in a way that people had not previously engaged with art. These sentiments are still true today, 13 years after the original was released. Shadow of the Colossus in 2018 is not just an update or HD remaster. This is a ground up re-make that retains the full spirit and experience of the original while giving a modern audience the kind of fluid controls and sharp visuals that we have become used to. This is how re-makes should be handled. This game has been crafted by people who understood what made the original so memorable, and who obviously worked extremely hard to retain that magic. Absolute recommendation. 10/10

      A Classic, Revisited

      I never finished Shadow of the Colossus when it came out on PS2. I didn't finish the remastered rerelease for PS2, either. Each time, I made it decently far, but for the time in which the game captivated my attention, very little could pull me from it. In what I've seen of this PS4 remake, the magic is perfectly preserved, while also spruced up in a number of small, quality-of-life ways to help "modernize" the game in some inoffensive ways. The graphics feel clean, but retain the impactful and oppressive art direction of the original. There are a number of control settings to play with to help you find the best fit for climbing and slaying each of these elemental behemoths. And, of course, the sound, the score, and the mood of the game are just as impactful as ever. Will I finally finish SotC this time around? Who's to say? I hope so. Maybe third time's the charm. But even if I don't, I'm very glad to be revisiting this dark, gargantuan odyssey once more in a package that clearly cares about its source material.

      Great for Returning Fans, Less so for Newcomers

      Shadow of The Colossus is often considered a "MUST PLAY" for anyone who considers themselves a fan of video games, and is similarly cited as one of the shining examples of games as art. While the aesthetic design, musical score, and just overall presentation of this game is absolutely stellar; the game shows its Playstation 2 era roots with somewhat clunky controls and decidedly oldschool design choices. For any potential buyers who don't know what this game is, I would stress that it is much more of a puzzle game than an action game. Each colossus feels like a puzzle you solve rather than a beast you fight like in a typical action game. The quality is there in this game, I just didn't particularly enjoy it, and I would encourage any potential buyers to research what they're getting into before purchasing.

      Best Version of the Game

      Shadow of the Colossus is considered one of the greatest video games of all time, and a true testament to video games as an art form, and there's a reason for that. The atmosphere, visuals, subtle story, and more cathartic moments truly make this an experience above all else. Bluepoint games, known as the masters or remastered, decided to remake Shadow of the Colossus from the ground up, and what we got is what you see here. The visuals are vastly improved, looking and running beautiful on the Playstation 4 Pro, and the controls have been refined, making for a tight experience that has your character doing what you want them to do (unlike the original version of the game). For only $40, this game is definitely worth going through if you own a Playstation 4, and there's so much more to do outside of the main story for newcomers and old fans alike.
