I have never played ico but when i played it, it was good and fun.
i have played shadow of the colossus for the ps2 and i thought it was top notch for a ps2 game and it was even better on the ps3 or at least i think so.
personally these two titles will always be my favs. this is more of a buy as opposed to a rent. assuming you loved the ps2 versions and wanted to rehash some old memories without the ps2 graphics. they did an alright job at improving the graphics on both, but i would have paid a little more to have both titles completely remade for the ps3 engine with a little extra bonus level or something.
(My review is only for shadows of colossus since that is all i was interested in playing)
Im going to be honest plain & simple the controls SUCK! They are horible! I have played almost every remake offered on Gamefly & this is the only game where i could tell i was playing a ps2 game at lest from a control standpoint.
I spent so much time frustrtated with controlls i didnt reallise how much fun the game can be, once you accept the fact that the controll sucks. Around Colossi 7 i started having fun, ill admit if i had another game to play i would have sent this back.
BUT if you force yourself to stick with it & accept the fact that the controlls are horible it does end up being pretty fun. This was going to be a 2 out of 10 for me until i stuck with it a while, if the controlls were tight this could have been a truly epic game!
