Shadow of the Colossus
Tales speak of an ancient land where creatures the size of mountains, roam the majestic landscape. Bound to the land, these creatures hold a key to a mystical power of revival - a power you must obtain to waken a loved one. Shadow of the Colossus is a majestic journey through ancient lands to seek out and destroy gigantic mythical beasts. With your trusty horse at your side, explore the spacious lands and unearth each Colossi. Armed with your wits, a sword and a bow, use cunning and strategy to topple each behemoth. A remake of the critically-claimed game of the same title. Also from the minds that brought you The Last Guardian & ICO

This isn't a 5/10 because any of the aspects are 5/10. This is a 5/10 because every aspect of this game is either amazing or complete dog shit, with no in-between. And they all perfectly balance each other out to an overall 5/10.
The controls are bad, which is expected from a ps2 game. The scale is cool but getting lost is easy and can be frustrating
absolutely fucking not
This remaster just wants to be a total replacement of a game the developers at Bluepoint clearly think is already perfect. They change nothing. They improve on nothing. They dont even have the decent to make of the colossi worse. It's the same game. It's disgusting. It's a replacement.
They're never gonna replace the Mona Lisa with a version that has more defined hair, detailed skin textures, and no artistic liberties because clearly the background of the Mona Lisa would look better if it resembled a photograph. That's what this game is. I hate it.
Every time I turned a corner I felt like there was going to be someone there, even though I KNEW that was not the case. That's how good the atmosphere is in this game.
