Back of Case - PlayStation 2 (UK):

    Into the unknown, ride forth

    Tales 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.

    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.

    • From the creators of the critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning ICO

    • Find and hunt down 16 gargantuan Colossi unique in size and scale

    • Explore a seamlessly vast and beautifully realised environment
