Shadow of the Colossus – Monster hunting begins

Shadow of the Colossus – Monster hunting begins

PS Plus subscribers could be richer in March with a great-looking, unique PS4-exclusive game, Shadow of the Colossus.

Ueda Fumito put the original Shadow of the Colossus on the table in 2005, in which we had to hunt huge but really high-rise creatures. Although he found his audience, unfortunately the control of the game was a bit problematic, and since it consistently surpassed the capabilities of the PS2, the program seemed like a slideshow. This was helped by the 2011 PS3 remaster, as Shadow of the Colossus was already running properly here, and even underwent some wrinkle stitching. However, the theme of our present recommendation is not this, but the 2018 remake of Bluepoint Games.

Old-new game

PS Plus subscribers will receive the Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 now in March alongside Sonic Forces. However, don’t rework the imagination like I do in Resident Evil 2, where they’ve thoroughly delved into the character design, gameplay, and even the story.

In the case of Shadow of the Colossus, although we can talk about a completely new game, the audiovisual experience has remained the same. As an expert, Bluepoint modernized control and graphics — recreating the latter from the ground up — while retaining the sounds, music, and design exactly as Foito dreamed of anno. Thanks to this, you get all the positives of the old game in a way that fully meets modern requirements.

The excruciating joy of hunting

Shadow of the Colossus is a special game, and not just because we hunt mountain creatures. Because of his mood and storytelling style, we are able to sympathize with these monsters, and while we wound them and take their lives, a little inside, maybe we will die.

The game is action-oriented anyway, built on the bittersweet joy of hunting. We need to find these colossal creatures in the vast, open playing field and then find a way to climb on them and find out what our weaknesses are. If you have it, then comes the nerve-wracking fun (at least on a more difficult level) because the creatures that seem pious at first are certainly serious about protecting their lives and don’t hesitate to try to kill us.

At the very least, they try to trample their torment, but they can either escape or attack with electricity and poison. So hunting down a walking mountain is by no means easy fun, especially if you only have a sword, bow and horse, not a huge Yäger or MechaGodzilla.

In a word like a hundred, Shadow of the Colossus is a beautiful, heartbreaking tale with a unique atmosphere in which a tiny knight resurrection of his love begins to hunt down giants.
