Shadow Of Colossus Remake: What Has Changed?

Like the original, the game is sparsely populated and features no exploration, no NPCs, nothing except the colossi you'll have to defeat in order to revive Mono, a young girl who has travelled with the protagonist to a forbidden land.

A stunning example of videogames as art, and the benchmark for all future remakes, Shadow Of The Colossus is a masterpiece renewed. This change has made a huge improvement in gameplay and the fighting sequence. Shadow of the Colossus was an incredible achievement, but it wasn't ideal - not even close.

Shadow of the Colossus is a breathtaking journey through ancient lands to seek out big beasts. "In 2005, Shadow of the Colossus' world was, compared to the colorful worlds of its contemporaries, solemn and lonely". "Bluepoint strikes a good balance, making welcome changes that leave the core experience intact". Each colossus that you battle feels ten times larger than you remember it being, which adds to that feeling of freshness that I mentioned before. Unlike other games where bosses can get predictable, the colossi in the game are designed uniquely and players will really have to think ways on how to take them down such as using the environments to your advantage or think of what weapon suits best.

I want to specifically praise the HDR in Shadow of the Colossus because the color palette on display was staggering. When riding on your horse through vast fields, it's a bit obvious to see the line where shrubs, grass, and other objects begin to load in.

The third photo is eight high quality art prints for the many Colossi that you will face in the game. Right now, the game is holding down an impressive 93 out of 100 on Metacritic, which is a score that counts a whopping 65 reviews.


Controls are historically one of the most divisive aspects of Shadow of the Colossus and, as such, the button layouts have been overhauled. However, controls were a different matter, specifically pointing to the horseback moments. The movement and platforming of your character in Shadow of the Colossus is easily the most outdated part of the game.

One problem that was present in the previous version of Shadow of Colossus was the framerate, especially, when fighting the giant colossus there seemed to be a lot of disorientation.

PlayStation NZ was kind enough to send out a media kit for the PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus to FutureFiveNZ.

The game doesn't explain where you are, when you are, why you're there beyond the initial setup, and that ultimately doesn't matter. A couple of new items have also been included that I'm sure hardcore collectors will appreciate. Will you be trying this new release?

Game Informer's Kyle Hilliard notes that this was the correct course for Bluepoint, which was responsible for remaking Shadow of the Colossus. With a select group of reviewers that have already used the Photo Mode, I must say that the game really looks great and it's one of the best remakes that Bluepoint has done for the PS4. While the story is best left a mystery to keep newcomers surprised, we can freely discuss the scale and scope of the game. In the video, the developers discuss the pressure of remaking such a classic game, and how they pulled it off. Figuring out how to trick a colossus into allowing you to scale it is the game's form of puzzle-solving, and it's satisfying each and every time you do it.
