Game Profile - Shadow of the Colossus on Playstation 2

Shadow of the Colossus is an action-adventure game published by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCEI) for the PlayStation 2. It was directed by Fumito Ueda and developed at SCEI's International Production Studio 1, also known as Team Ico; the same development team responsible for the cult hit Ico. Shadow of the Colossus is considered a spiritual successor to Ico.

The game's storyline focuses on a young man named Wander who enters a forbidden land. Wander must travel across a vast expanse on horseback and defeat sixteen massive beings, simply known as colossi, in order to restore the life of a girl named Mono. The game is unusual within the action-adventure genre in that there are no towns or dungeons to explore, no characters with which to interact, and no enemies to defeat other than the colossi. Shadow of the Colossus has been described as a puzzle game, as each colossus' weakness must be identified and exploited before it can be defeated.

Cited as an influential title in the video game industry, Shadow of the Colossus is regarded as an important work of art due to its minimalist landscape designs, immersive gameplay and emotional journey.

This game conveys a sense of tone and mood that makes it feel more vital then possible any other game I have played. It has wonderful music and the combat feels tense and rewarding. My only real complaint is that frame rate becomes an issue during fight scenes.

Arguably still one of the greatest games of all times. Formula has never been successfully replicated. This game is art.

I replayed this game not that long ago. Still one of the greatest experiences I've ever had with a game and I can't wait for Last Guardian

The best game ever made with MGS 3 Snake Eater up there, any of the two is the right choice.

Surely the best PS2 game I've ever played. Incredible graphics for the time when it was produced, fantastic soundtrack, not to say perfect, and an impeccable and exciting story, open to diverse interpretations. It brought tears to my eyes, and I recommend everyone who wants to have an incredible and slightly different experience from the conventional game.
