    A fresh coat of paint spruces up an already timeless classic that still feels like a breath of fresh air today. [March 2018, p.70]

    Shadow of the Colossus is a tremendous journey, and one well worth taking and retaking. The visual overhaul is stunning, thoroughly enhancing every facet of Wander and Agro's excellent adventure. Galloping through the tranquil world is always breathtaking; felling a monumental colossus is always humbling. Shadow of the Colossus is a beautiful reconstruction of an already exceptional title. It continues to be a modern classic and is an extraordinary game that everyone must experience.

    The concept of Shadow of the Colossus is unique and full of charm. The remastered version on PS4 is remarkable, which means it is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to try it, no matter whether you are an existing fan or a new player. However, Fumito Ueda's works are always a little bit cult, so it is also understandable if you may not get into this game.

    The best way to experience Shadow of the Colossus — play a couple of levels at a friend’s or use the Share Play function. This game was a hit in its time, on its original platform, but we all moved on, and now the remastered version feels archaic, especially its gameplay.

    A masterpiece reborn

    Ever since i heard shadow of The colossus was getting a remake i was overjoyed. I've played it on ps2, loved the remaster and now im able to play the remake of one the best action titles ever created. I couldn't be happier that this remake happened.The graphics, sound,  everything has been remade running on a brand new game engine entirely. The colosi and environments have been overloaded with amazing detail and the world feels very alive despite the quieting emptiness of it. With detailed texture work and lighting this game looks absolutely gorgeous. It's also butter smooth hardly ever dropping frames even when giant colossi are thrashing about. The story has been left untouched retaining the same emotional journey the original offered. No new colosi or extra story but Everything else however has been improved to the MAX. Bluepoint games did a phenomenal job of remaking this classic. ID even go as far to say this surpasses the original and is one of if not the best game remakes ever created. A masterpiece has been made even better i can't wait to see what bluepoint games does next. Absolutely incredible job. 10/10

    A masterpiece. The controls have issues but it's also worth it. The puzzles were great and the story was interesting. A must play for me.

    Amazing game. Astounding story. Really can't say more about it what already has been said. But the controls ... Man the controls sucks balls!Amazing game. Astounding story. Really can't say more about it what already has been said. But the controls ... Man the controls sucks balls! it's 7/10 precisely because of the controls. It got so frustrating at times to hold the camera angle during a fight or while mounted on Agro and using the GPS sword. Other than that, 10/10 story. Completes a circle. Leaves you staring at the screen once the game is over with controller in hand and whispering to yourself 'Wow'. Which is what this game is. Wow. Expand
