Advertising BlurbsBack of Case - PlayStation 2 (UK):
Into the unknown, ride forthTales speak of a distant place where creatures the size of mountains roam free. Bound to the land, these beasts hold the key to a mystical power - a power capable of bringing the departed back from the other side.
From the creators of ICO comes an adventure like no other. Spurred by love, yet armed only with sword and bow, one man faces an extraordinary challenge - a solitary quest: to find and slay opponents so immense they seem to possess no weakness.
But in this desolate, beautiful land, very little is ever as it seems.
And the journey is only just beginning...

Ever since ICO won the hearts of critics and gamers alike back in 2001, everyone has
been eagerly anticipating the next title from the talented creative team behind it. The
answer has finally stomped into view in the form of Shadow of the Colossus, a game that
once again looks set to rewrite the gaming rulebook.
Lying at the core of its fantastical premise is a story about a hero who is desperately
seeking to return the soul of young girl to her body, bringing her back to this world. The
only way he's able to do this is to locate and defeat the 16 legendary Colossi - beasts of
truly gargantuan proportions - that roam the land. Armed only with a sword, bow and
arrow, and his trusty steed Agro, our hero must call upon all of his wits and cunning if he
has any hope of succeeding.
