Shadow of Collosus preview
Following the hugely successful remaster of Crash Bandicoot in 2017, Sony are set to release another huge return in the form of the Shadow of the Colossus having wowed so many people with its stunning graphics and unique game play 12 years ago. If you had ever played The Shadow of the Colossus created by Team Ico for the Playstation 2 or 3, you know how insanely great this game actually is, it even having a starring role in the film Reign Over Me. Many calling it the best game they have played. However, if you have not came into contact with this game, it is a must play experience, if you enjoyed The Last Guardian, this is a game for you.
The action-adventure games follows the protagonist Wander, and his trusty assistant, his horse Argo, as they must defeat 16 Colossi in aim to resurrect a girl named Mono of the fantasy land called the Forbidden Land. All 16 Colossi, are spread all over this marvelously created, aesthetically pleasing world and all possess various weaknesses the player must discover with your swords reflecting light which reveals a sigil. This game is solely based on boss battles essentially, so this is why each battle has being created with phenomenal detail and the Colossi are as big as you think they would be next to a person. A criticism towards The Shadow of the Colossus, would be its frame rate when battling a Colossi as it can blur and become slow. But this is what the PS4 will fix, with it being a far superior machine compared to the PS2, therefore the game will run so smoothly.
The Shadow of the Colossus is a masterpiece of gaming. the graphics when it was on the Playstation 2 being outstanding, they can only improve being brought on to a enhanced console. The only way this game could be better is, is if more Colossi were introduced!
