i have a bit of a history with this game, i used to play it when i was younger. i thought it was amazing, but i never could get past that one flying colossi near the end 'cause my ps2 kept freezing.
so recently i picked it up again on an emulator, and had a great time. they really don't make 'em like this no more...... the atmosphere and aesthetics are great. also really like how fluid the animations on your character and your horse are. but i think what i like most is the sense of scale the colossi give, it just feels really well realized.
camera and controls can be a bit janky at times but it's a ps2 game so i'm willing to give it some slack ;)

ending also made me tear up, that damn horse..

This has to be the PS2's defining, standout release. It's one of very, very few games I've bought multiple copies of over different generations of consoles. In later years it's never hit quite as hard as it did in 2005, but what an experience it was back then. Cinematic, gripping, fascinating and oddly melancholic. They don't make 'em like this anymore. They didn't make 'em like this back then either for that matter.

unforgettable experience must play
half a star taken off for the janky controls and how tedious and unintuitive it is

Nunca vai existir nada como Shadow of the Colossus, principalmente levando em conta sua época

Não há review que chegue perto de definir essa experiência. Talvez seja um pouco de Saudosismo mas muito bom... Agro o maior herói da história.
