Did You Know?


If Wander walks up to the side of Agro, and the player presses the circle button, Wander will gently pat his horse. See more »


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 »

This is such a wonderful game! I found myself in total amazement as I wandered through this massive world. The music is perfect, grand epic themes, yet always somewhat sad and wistful too. Just right for the death of an age. You are on a quest to resurrect a strange and nameless girl who has been sacrificed. The resurrection can only happen in the Forbidden Land at the edge of the earth,and only if an ancient power is restored through a deadly ritual that calls for the blood of the sixteen titans that walk this forsaken place. Your only companion is a massive war-horse, Agro, and an ancient black sword that points the way to terror and glory. I fell in love with this game as soon as it started. There are very few games out there that can come close to this one is sheer grandeur, and I have found none that equal the sense of pure loneliness and isolation in a land of crumbling splendor. I would almost never tell someone to buy an entire console for the sake of one game, but this would be the exception. This one is worth it!
