Game Journal Feb 26: Shadow of the Colossus

You are Wander, a boy risking everything to be with his beloved and recently deceased girlfriend, you have stolen a magical sword and entered a forbidden land, where lies a temple that may return her to live...

In the temple you hear a mysterious voice that tells you that that you can bring her back with the use of the magic sword you stole...

This forbidden land is filled with Colossi, some strange and gigantic creatures, these creature are quite unique, you can't tell if they are organic or not, they look like a living building of sorts...

Your magic sword has a very special power, not only can you use it to locate the Colossi, but once you get to them the sword can locate their weak spot, of course, getting to it is the real challenge...

Remember I said these things look organic and inorganic at the same time? That's because they have fur AND stone forming their bodies...

Well you have to someone cling on to the fur and try to reach the weak spot (or weak spots) that the creature has, and each Colossi will make it harder and harder to get to it!

Also, when you hit them on their weak spot, they will try to shake off widely, and since your grip is limited them sometimes get aways with it...

But you are not alone, you have your trusty horse Agro and a bow that can't really harm the Colossi, but it can't call their attention and trigger something, too bad it seem to refuse to shoot sometimes...

The game is visually stunning, my parents actually thought I was watching a movie when they saw me playing it, and this is probably the PS2s last hurrah, with the PS3 around the corner that is...

If you want something different, beautiful, challenging and simply great, then this is your game!

One thing DID bother me, the game has stunning graphics, but the brightness is just too much! I had to turn in down a lot when in an outdoor area and viceversa, but maybe it's my monitor?
