After the mixed success of Ico in the US it’s a surprise that we end up getting Shadow of the Colossus first. The larger than life adventure starts off with a solemn wanderer entering a large temple. He comes there with a young girl wrapped in a blanket and demands that the spirits above use their power to revive her. The mysterious presence from above reluctantly agrees, but on one condition. The warrior must slay mythical giants known as colossi first. The boy agrees, but he has no idea what he has gotten himself into.
