Cheats and Walkthroughs
ICO and Shadow of the Colossus were two games of the PlayStation 2 era that exemplified the highest level of quality. ICO, the story of a boy with horns who must escort a princess out of a castle, and Shadow of the Colossus, a game where The Wanderer must defeat larger-than-life creatures to bring the love of his life back from the dead. The games are beautiful, meaningful, and have finally been brought in to the HD era of the PlayStation 3 in beautiful form with the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection.
"They are both relatively high concept games that are a bit of a tough sell in the Western market. No doubt many who have not played them wonder why some of us rave about a game in which you spend much of your time pulling a nearly mute girl around a castle, or riding a horse through a lonely wasteland in search of fruit and lizards. Once you let yourself get absorbed into the worlds they present, you’ll get it. These games are about the experience, the wonder of a world simultaneously familiar and alien, and the novelty of a game that uses the medium of videogames to its fullest potential."
