I Beat Shadow of the Colossus

with 4 comments

Bitsy, Shadow of the Colossus is the game you were watching me play a couple Christmases ago, the one with the dude and the horse and the scary, giant behemoths stomping around. Yes, I finally beat it. I had to use a guide, but even then it was still a grueling experience. Died many a times. Bruised my thumbs up. But it was worth it.

Shadow of the Colossus is a pristine example of when a videogame can be both art and entertainment. The stark beauty of the landscapes, the sheer emptiness of it all is worth your time. The story is a bit light, but does come to fruition by the end. Then the Colossi themselves are mind-blowing. Giant, moving puzzles. Imagine your favorite boss battles. Did you come up with 16? Well, that’s what this game basically is. A shame I waited so long to really experience it…
