If you don't know about Shadow of the Colossus yet then we pity you, you poor thing. Created by the team responsible for the woefully underappreciated but sublime ICO, Shadow for PS2 demonstrates the same beautiful aesthetic sensibilities and smothering atmosphere that made the first game such a massive cult favourite.
While the game's been out in Japan and North America for some time now, Sony has finally announced that both Shadow of the Colossus and a re-release for ICO will hit European shelves on February 17. Just so you have absolutely no excuse for not checking them out, we'll do that sentence one more time: Sony has finally announced that both Shadow of the Colossus and a re-release for ICO will hit European shelves on February 17.
If neither ICO or Shadow of Colossus makes it into the top ten on release, we're personally coming over and smacking you round the head with your PS2 until you finally see the light - even if it's only that funny blue one that comes on in standby mode. We don't want a repeat of 2002 again (poor the original ICO).
