I caved and bought this even though I've already played it many moons ago. It would be good if they remade Ico, but did something to make the combat less boring and repetitive ie a big strawberry float off shotgun.

My copy is on its way now so hopefully I’ll get it tomorrow. Also Amazon sent me a code for a free Shadow of the Colossus theme and a sword for the game too.

Mine just dropped through the letterbox.

Looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.

Oh boy, this is a great-looking game and the atmosphere is tremendous. I'm playing for the first time and just took down the initial Colossus. That size! That fur!

I felt bad killing it, though :( .

I bought it for the 3rd time. Don't think I've ever completed it, so hopefully this time!

Videogame publishing nowdays :datass: .

The game itself has increased from £29.99 to £34.99 in the PS Store, too. I think the wealth of magnificent reviews made them think that they could jack up the price.

Snap, Oyster. I felt like a boss when I took down that second one :datass: :) .

I'm stuck on the third one, though... I don't know what I have to do to make the beast appear. I've swam over to the thin pathway that rises out of the water and walked to the top of it, but nothing happens. Do I have to jump to the midde section of rock? I've tried that a couple of times but I keep falling back down to the water.

Beat the third colossus :-). What a game!

Had to look online for a tip on breaking the colossus' armour so that I could climb up it, though.

Took me wee while to beat the third, kept falling off. Feeling like a boss also 8-)

Done the 4th. Looked up had the strategy right but had to play waiting game to mount it....

So good

4 down here too.

Am I the only one that's had to switch back to Classic controls? I kept jumping off Agro and then whistling for him when I was trying to climb up a Colossus.

Switched the controls round and its much better, only issue is now there isn't a dedicated roll button.

Would anyone here like my Amazon code for the PS4 theme and in-game sword? Free to the first person who wants it!
