Tiny Details, Big Colossi
Incredible, Tiny Details You Probably Didn’t Notice in Shadow of the Colossus Remake
The sheer size of the colossi you’re tasked with felling in Shadow of the Colossus make them pretty damn daunting foes. From a sprawling, hairy flying beast to a towering stone golem with a giant sword, let’s be real, you just wouldn’t hedge your bets on Wander to come out on top.
Though these majestic colossi looked great in the PS2 and PS3 versions, the PS4 remake takes it to a whole other level. Whether you’re watching the individual hairs on a beast’s back flap around in the wind, or watching as a fine dust and larger bits of crumbling debris fall from the lumbering stone warrior standing before you. You can even see signs of old-age and decay on your opponent’s too, be it worn and rusting metal, or cracks and crevices covering the surface of your stone advocate.
It might be pretty hard to appreciate the detail of the colossi as you’re being hurled around on their backs and Wander is holding on for dear life, but give photo mode a spin and you’ll begin to appreciate the tiny details that make them such memorable adversaries.
