legend's Wander to Kyozou (PlayStation 2) review

Ah, Nostalgia

Review/Rant: I feel a great sense of nostalgia whenever I think about this game. Few other game immersed me completely in their world as this game did. This an incredible feat considering that the main character only says one word over and over throughout the whole game (Agro). Other characters have very limited dialogue. The gameplay comprises of a series of boss fights, say HUUUGE boss fights, with a few platforming segments and horseback riding through vast environments to get to those boss fights and platforming segments.  This is it really. It might not sound so good on paper but the ICO Team managed to make one of the best games ever created with this simple idea.

Closing Comment: If you haven't played this game and you think you know what an epic boss fight is, think again.

This game in one word: Epic

    Shadow of the Colossus is a game unlike any other.  You play a young man trying to save his one true love by defeating a number of enemies that hold the secret to bringing her back to life.  Okay...so maybe the premise isn't exactly original, but that's where the unoriginality ends.  The game comes to us from the same development team that brought us one of the best PS2 games ever made, ICO.  Adored by critics yet ignored by buyers, ICO was an artistic adventure that will be long remembered...
