ICO had a cool concept but nothing that great. It's pretty much a puzzle game, while escorting a girl out the entire time. Yorda, the girl, AI is pretty bad when youre trying to call you instead of holding her hand, and she follows at the wrong times, as well as standing on wrong things. The game had a couple very frustrating puzzles that took me a half hour just to figure out I had to do a certain thing.
Shadow of Collosus, in my opinion, was much better than ICO, but it got boring throughout the middle of the game. The concept is so cool, and the collosus' art is amazing, but you have to slay 16 collosi, but when you reach 8, you kind of get bored with the boss fights. Also, the final collosus fight is absolutely frustrating and took me an hour to beat him.

For anyone looking for a great gaming experience, I highly recommend they check out these two classics. The plot, gameplay and visual style for both of these games is unlike anything I have experienced before. You will become immersed in the worlds while getting your heartstrings tugged by the plot twists.
Sure, both games can become tedious and highly frustrating at times (mostly due to awkward camera angles) but this is a minimal issue to the rest of an extraordinary gaming experience. I invested an approximate 12 hours on both games with some exploring for those extra trophies.
Don't forget to stay after the credits for both games!!!

I never played ICO on ps2 before, but really wished i had it was fun and exciting it was a fun and wild experience. I did hate taking the chick every where and she had a horrible AI. Having to tell her to go a certain way and she says no, but try it again she does it. that was annoying.
Shadow of Colossus
I love Shadow of Colossus i did play this on ps2 and it so fun battling giant bosses. Its easy concept to get go fight giant Colossus and live. So fun to play and great game to experience.
Both games are masterpieces and worth playing. Awesome and fun go play them.
