It took me looooong, but I finally found Shadow of the Colossus
Â Â (by the "Team Ico") yesterday.
If there ever exists a better birthday gift (I'm 40 years old today),
Â Â please keep the very idea a surprise...
Â Â ...because this game is even more wonderful than Ico !!
In Ico, it was enigmas in situation.
In Shadow of the Colossus, it's enigmas in action.
And REALLY, IF there is ever to happen an Elfquest console game,
Â Â it SHOULD be realised by this "Team Ico" :
. Splendid and poetic backgrounds, with very realistic effects
. Calming and soothing sounds and musics (and exciting ones for action)
. The character is incredibly well rendered (and on PS2, think!) ...
Â Â ... and he almost looks like an elf, already !
. Simple commands, with efficiency in mind
. Strong moral sense behind the story and way of building the game
. EXTRAORDINARY GRAPHIC SENSE,
Â Â BOTH about backgrounds AND the game
Â Â ( Think : Almost NO cinematics : Most of the shots you'll see...
Â Â Â Â ...have been taken from the GAME itself ! )
And worse, even :
The more I play it, the more I think about Elfquest !
For those lucky ones who've found and played Ico or Shadow ...
Â Â ...please share here what you think.
