    Highly Impressive art design, but whoa, the frame-rate is all over the map.

    Rated on December 25, 2005 by dryden555

    If a game could get an A+++ for art design, Shadow of the Colossus deserves it. And the idea of fighting gigantic enemies by climbing up them is a brilliant idea for a game. But everything else abou...

    Graphics, music, gameplay; pretty much all these feel like Ico but Shadow still manages to be a great game on its own.
