Shadow of the Colossus is one the most original games in a long time it may have a simple concept of just find the boss

Each Colossus will be fearsome to look at while others will be massive taking the whole screen the biggest you will ever see on any console and trying to get on is a task. Just hold L1 and you will see how small you really are and does provide a scale of size. Colossus battles can last anywhere from 10 to 60 plus minutes some will simply piss you off while others will be easy especially 1 and 2 so a lot of trial and error and some. Each colossus will have a different strategy so none of them are a like. After beating one a will be a very satisfying accomplishment taking something that enormous down.
Graphically this is very amazing for what the Playstation 2 can do for example shoot an arrow at the colossus it will actually stay there for the whole battle also there is no loading what so ever. No screen tear (vertical sync) even when the colossus is shaking widely trying to get you to fall. It is amazing to see the particle effect, lighting, motion blur, size of the world and each colossus Sony has done a very fantastic job in creating a very artistic massive world to explore that is very memorable.
Simply this is Game of the Year with out a doubt a very unique and filling experience that once you beat a Colossus it will give a urge to find and defeat the next one. From start to finish it will be a satisfying experience this is a must have game definitely on my Top 10 games of all time list.
