Shadow of the Colossus is one of the best remakes of all time
There’s a reason why Team Ico’s Shadow of the Colossus commands so much love and respect from the PlayStation audience. From a technical perspective, it pushed the PlayStation 2 hardware further than it had gone before, but it also delivered a special style and atmosphere that set it apart from anything else that had gone before. In essence, it was the type of game that only comes along very rarely – an experience that actually strengthens one’s love for the gaming medium.
To revive such a classic in the modern age for today’s console hardware is a potentially hazardous exercise, possibly even bordering on heresy – especially as the original developer was not involved in the work. What it required was a team as passionate and caring about the game as the fans that love it so much, which is precisely why Sony undertook this task by employing the masters of the remaster: Bluepoint Games.
Whether we’re talking about the original Uncharted trilogy, Gravity Rush, Metal Gear Solid 2 and its sequel – or indeed the PS3 remaster of Shadow of the Colossus itself – Bluepoint has delivered tremendous remasters of beloved classics, but with the release of Shadow of the Colossus for PlayStation 4, we’re looking at something new, something even more ambitious – a full on ground-up remake of the original game.
