A remake of one of the greatest iconic PlayStation 2 titles. The original game debuted in 2005 and six years later it was released on PlayStation 3 in HD version. In Shadow of the Colossus the player assumes the role of a young man named Wander who places the body of his beloved on a mysterious altar hidden in the wild. He learns that he will be able to restore her life if he manages to defeat sixteen giant creatures known as the Colossi. During the game the player travels through a large and secluded area on the back of his horse Agro in search for clues that can lead him to the opponents. The combat with each opponent is a separate and very hard challenge, in which finding the weak points of a Colossus is the key to victory. The protagonist is well trained in using a sword and a bow.

He travels through the beautiful and dangerous areas in search of a mythical altar hidden in the wild, where he intends to place the body of his beloved Mono. Once he succeeds, a mysterious voice informs him that the soul of the girl is imprisoned in this spectacular realm. The protagonist will be able to restore the life of his beloved if he manages to defeat 16 giant beasts known as the Colossuses.

Mechanics

The duels won’t be easy as the Colossuses can run, jump, swim, fly or throw parts of their surroundings. Each battle requires the player to use a different tactic, focused primarily on finding the weak points of his opponent. Some Colossuses are resistant to specific weapon types; other must be cut to pieces or hit in a specific place in order to be defeated.
