It was back in 2005 when Shadow of the Colossus graced the PS2 and went on to become one of, if not the best PS2 games ever. Thirteen years later this timeless classic has been re-introduced with a fresh coat of paint for the current generation of players.
So how does it hold up?
In this review, we will go through every aspect of this game like graphics, gameplay, story and overall experience in detail. However, to understand the pedigree of what we are looking at here, we need to look at one more aspect of this game which is its Legacy.
When it comes to timeless classics in video games, very few games have the impact of Shadow of the Colossus. I remember when I first booted the original SOTC on my PS2, back in 2005. I went in completely blind, not knowing anything about this game. No reviews or spoilers back in the day. After the initial roadblock of trying to figure out the climbing mechanics, it was a moment of awe that only a few games could provide at the time.
