though i did not get far when i rented it, ive played the whole game before and it is just amazing. aside from a few graphical imperfectins(and some difficulty) this game is an amazing story, particularly the 5th and 13th battles

An Atmosphere Before a Game

This game was made to put the player in another world.

This game was not made to make the player feel good about leveling up or collecting shiny trinkets. Not that there isn't character development, there is. But you're going to need to play Shadow of the Colossus actively, with your imagination going, like when you're reading a book. You are expected to be a part of the character and his development.

I chose the "10" rating for this game, not because it's perfect, but because it's something unique and valuable--perhaps even timeless. Which is much more than can be honestly said for the vast majority of games that actually get produced for us mindless consumers.

Open your mind and play Shadow of the Colossus, it's an experience you wont find anywhere else.

This game was absolutely exhilarating i say this not for the story line or for the dialog or for the music (which if you have read some of my other reviews i care about). This game got a 10 out of 10 by me because of first. This game has great graphics for its time it came out half way through the lifespan of the ps2 and its graphics are better than lair for the ps3 a game that wasnt even a release game for it. As well the main reason this game gets a godly 10 is because of each power gamer's dream...the BOSSES!! This entire game is 16 boss battles ranging from curious lamas with jew curls to cats that are afraid of fire to birds that fly at mach speed that you have to jump and grab on to. This game has many bosses that make you use your mind and common sense to take out these bad mothers. And if you get stuck the Door Man (dont ask) will call (telepathy) you and give you help. So this game is a perfect game for power gamers or for those of you who hate grinding on minions so you could beat the boss. or just want to get straight to the boss. All in all this game is recomen for those not faint of heart but those with the guts to show them all
