Shadow of the Colossus Review

Shadow of the Colossus Review
Keep on Climbin' - 4.6 / 5
Initially released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 and then re-released in high definition six years later on the PlayStation 3; Shadow of the Colossus returns to Sony’s latest console for a third outing courtesy of developers Bluepoint Games.
Now, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited about one of the greatest games ever made getting a facelift for the PlayStation 4. After all, even though some twelve years have passed since it first graced our screens, we can now enjoy this work of art in all the glory of dynamic 4K. 
And although the visual splendour alone is enough to warrant a purchase of this timeless classic; the emotionally investing story fused with the gorgeous soundtrack elevates Shadow of the Colossus alongside some of the PS4’s best games.
In fact, when you consider the already extensive catalogue of outstanding titles available on the PS4, it’s quite an achievement that Shadow of the Colossus deserves a place among them.
