Goofs

Before the battle with the 16th colossus, Wander and Agro cross a bridge that begins to collapse and Agro falls to her apparent death. When Agro is falling, large splashes of water can be seen in the river below. Obviously these splashes were caused by the already-collapsed pieces of the bridge. However, when Wander looks over the ledge just seconds later to see Agro falling, there is not even a ripple in the water. See more »

Rather fun, plus a rather good albeit sad story.
22 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was a good game, nice graphics and an interesting tale. Maybe it could have used a bit more here or there to spruce it up...maybe a few more characters or something as the game could use some more back story and character development. The game has a young man bringing his deceased loved one to a forbidden valley temple where he is confronted by a voice that tells him of a way to perhaps revive his beloved. He must go out and slay huge beasts which in turn destroys statues that seal this beings powers. So there you have it, you along with your trusty horse must seek out and slay the colossi inhabiting this mysterious valley land. Using the sun to guide you, you track them down using clues given you by the mysterious voice and once you find them you must find a way to climb them so you can find the weak point and bring them down. The fighting is great as it took a bit to figure out what to do here and there, however for the most part I was able to find a way to kill the Colossus without any aid. There were a couple, though, I had to search for the way to kill them on the web. Like I said add some more elements in the valley and this would be really great, because for the most part when searching for the colossi you are simply riding your horse here and there. Still good, but sad.
