Shadow of the Colossus: A Review.

Hello there, today I will be reviewing Shadow of the Colossus. If you don't know what this is, it's a Japanese epic. What I mean by that is that there are points in this game where you want to stand up and say "that's bad-ass." Sadly, before you get there you have to do a lot of tedious horse-riding and jumping over stuff. The colossi really pay off though, when you see them they are awesome. They are humungous rock dirt things that move. The object of the game is to locate and destroy all sixteen colossi. Several people say that this game is easier than it looks. I think the opposite. It is harder than it looks and it looks pretty hard. The picture I included shows the first colossi. I haven't gotten past it yet. There are sixteen in all and the sixteenth one is extremely hard because it shoots lightning beams out of it's eyes. If you're wondering why your character is going around killing these humungous beasts there's a reason.  He's trying to resurrect a woman who got sacrificed because she was thought to have evil spirits inside her body. Your character needs to kill all the colossi to make her live again. Overall I give this game a 7.5 because once all the finding is done it's awesome!


  1. 7.5 ? are you kidding? this is arguably the most epic game ever made!

  2. Yes, alas for me I spent about an hour and a half finding each one of the colossi. It is a beautiful game though. Maybe it's just 'cause I'm not a very good gamer.
