    Believe the hype. Its actually really good

    Played the PS3 version I love the asthetics, I love the atmosphere, I love the concept. But the controls is just so broken that it brings my score down to a maybe 6/10. With overly corrective camera that would aut... Read Full Review

    Mehh

    This game was short. I beat it in one day. The graphics are beautiful and the sound effects really pull you into the scenery to make it feel realistic. From the start there was no introduction on the characters, who they... Read Full Review

    Worst game ever

    I have played some terrible games and this takes the cake. The horse mechanics were like i was riding a dog who thought it was a horse but was actually a cat. No clues, no side quests, and no extra enemies. The travel in... Read Full Review

    Worst game ever

    One of the worst games I played in years, boring and super repetitive, you spend around 98% of the time riding the horse to reach one of the 16 giants then climb and kill'em then back again to that unconscious girl.. Tha... Read Full Review

    One remake that is worth every penny and your time

    There's something unique about Shadow of the Colossus since it was first released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 was just mind blown for what it was for a game. I never classed Shadow of the Colossus as a game I call it a... Read Full Review

    Don't bother, huge waste of money

    The only one good thing I can say about this game is the visuals are beautiful other than that this game has nothing going for it. Everything is irritating, the controls, the camera, no story development, open world with... Read Full Review
