Review: Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)

January 29, 2018 1 min read

Shadow of the Colossus is a timeless masterpiece. Some of the greatest games exist as the best representatives of an era or a genre. They were groundbreaking and influential in ways that guided and evolved future game design. They're remembered fondly but maybe they don't hold up as well as they used to.

That's not the case with Shadow of the Colossus. It's widely regarded as a popular candidate for the best game ever, and its design hasn't aged a day in the 12 years since its original release. That's not hyperbole and more than a decade of affection speaking either; this is the part where I feel obliged to confess this is my first time ever playing Shadow of the Colossus. This remake's fresh coat of paint isn't there to hide any flaws, it's there to highlight its perfections.
