While Bluepoint has made a lot of improvements, the core game, the soul of it, remains unchanged, as I mentioned earlier. As Wander, you’re trying to resurrect a young girl whose body you have carried to the Shrine of Worship. The gods that be are willing to help, but you must first defeat all of the colossi (the number of which I don’t want to spoil). Few games can have such a simple premise and gameplay design, yet are flat out good enough, timeless enough, to be remastered — twice. So, whether you have played SOTC before or not, you can rest assured it’s an all-time classic, and that for the PS4, Bluepoint has done a fantastic job with this remaster.
I’ve come to appreciate the realistic look of Colossus, which felt crass at first, but has over time expressed a warmth that I never quite felt from its predecessor. But it’s still respectful, recognizing that, however great the visuals, the magic is under the surface.
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.
Even though Blueprint have re-made everything from the graphics to the animations they’ve manage to not only make Shadow of the Colossus playable in 2018, but also to keep the feeling from the original game – and added some great extra features on top of that. One of the best remakes ever made.
The work done by Bluepoint Games for Shadow of the Colossus shows their skills and awareness. The remake is surprising and offers a lot of graphic customization, proving to be beautiful to see. The game is full of gorgeous graphic effects and runs at high performance, loosing a little bit the charm of the original title, which remains unchanged in its story and game content.
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.
Boring game for my taste. The graphics are great, the environment beautiful, but the controls over the horse ****, the camera control **** and the Colossus are easy to kill. The hardest part is to find the Colossus. This game are for the people that like the explorer and contemplate the environment.
