One of the most rewarding gaming experience I’ve had in quite some time, Shadow of the Colossus is an exercise in restraint (something rarely found with game designers). Large parts of the game are spent riding a horse through a lavishly rich landscape, looking for a giant monster to battle. Felling one of the title colossi always involves solving a logical puzzle (real-world logic, as opposed to the so often found in-game logic) and is very satisfying. One of the best looking games I’ve ever seen on the PS2, riding, fighting and climbing cliff-faces are always esthetically pleasing and quite cinematic. Highly recommended!
