Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection
Most beautiful game I have ever played
The story for this game fills your mind with wonder, thinking about how everything is the way it is. I played it for the first time, and when I beat it, I had to beat it again, and again, and again. I do not know why, but it is so addicting, even though you can only do the story.
shadow of the colossus is one of my favorite games of all time. its a masterpiece. haven't played ico yet but if its anywhere near as good as shadow of the colossus then I'm in for a treat. for those who haven't played shadow i strongly recommend this, and for those who have i still recommend this. its worth having on your shelf to play again on a rainy day.
This is without a doubt two of the worst, most overrated games ever. Bad Controls. DON'T BUY THIS!!!
Anxious to play this!!
I have yet to play this game for myself, however, I have watched many of my friends play this and I was in complete amazement to say the least. Everything in the game looked mind blowing especially the intense battles! I can't wait to play it!!
Two of the best looking and deepest games ever made on one disk. ICO and Shadow of Colossus are just amazing, and to get both for twenty bucks in the same package is a deal not to be looked over. These games will move you.
Epic HD collection!
I found this an amazing deal since these ps2 games are very rare now (not to mention expensive). The hd graphics make the draw distance much better. Another thing to note is that Ico includes the two player ability not found in the ntsc ps2 counterpart. It's not great but it does help in getting some of the trophies. Collecting the trophies is what really enhanced the lasting appeal. If you enjoy adventure/puzzle games and haven't had the chance to play these yet, grab a copy of the hd collection.
One of a kind
There exist no words capable of describing the superior magnificence of this utterly breath taking game.
My review is about SOC because is the one I finish so Here we go. SOC is a great game is diffrent from the others because it has an expensive world with out any foe aroun it excep from the Collosus. The are 16 in total. I have a wonderfull expirience playing this game is a romantic story that I like. The game is UNIQUE dont have comparasion to others games I tell you if you want a diffrent and UNQUE game try SOC I promise that it change the way you see gaming. At the very end the game sorprise me and well I cannot believe what I just saw in the end. I dont tell you cause I dont wanna spoil the game. But trust me it will wake your emotions cause is very emotional the ending.But in simple words one more time SOC IS A UNIQUE GAME EVERY GAMER HAVE TO OWNED or just TRY IT.
Could Have Been A Masterpiece
Let's be honest nobody would buy this collection to play Ico and for good reason. I played the game for 30 minutes and was bored out of my mind every waking second. So I'll just review Shadow of the Collosus. In the black hole of creativity that is the modern gaming industry, it's nice to go back to a game that is truly inspired to be something completely different. Admittedly I never played the original for the PS2 but always wanted to because it really peaked my interest. Beauty in simplicity is how I would describe this game. It's a simple premise, defeat the 16 colossi to save your girlfriend, and that's pretty much all you'll be doing. It may sound boring when in truth it's strangely addicting. It really reminds me of an old-school NES game with it's simple goal and straight-to-the-point game-play. The fights are truly epic and each one is unique in it's own way. Though the game may be epic, it suffers from some serious game-play issues. These have got to be some of the most unresponsive controls I've ever seen in a game. Seriously, how hard can it be to make the main character do something exactly WHEN I tell him to do something? Apparently for Team ICO that's asking A LOT. Second, the camera angles are awful half the time, sure you can change them, but as soon as you do, they change right back to whatever horrendous angle you had before, making you think you have control of the camera, when in truth you never did and never will. If you've played the original Super Mario 64 you know exactly what I'm talking about here. Thirdly, texture pop-in in this game is absolutely ridiculous! You can't travel for more than 20 seconds without a texture popping in, and while that isn't a game breaker it definitely shows how lazily made this "HD Collection" was. Team ICO could have fixed these problems but chose not to in order to make a quick buck. Think about it, a game being sold as new in 2011 and 2012 has issues that were present in Super Mario 64, a game released 16 years ago! While I did like Shadow of the Colossus it's very frustrating for no good reason. The only real challenge in Shadow Of The Colossus is dealing with the poor and sloppy game-play designs made by Team ICO. I really wanted to love this game but the huge, glaring issues are just unacceptable. It is a good game but it could have been a masterpiece.
I got the pack for SOC but Ico is also a good game
Shadow of Collasosos ( I know i spelled that wrong ) Is a fantastic game its self but the 2nd game in the franchice is also delightful. I bought these 2 Great games for just 17.99 But the price will go back up to 50.00 green ones. I am very happy with these two spiffing games.
