In Shadow of the Colossus the player assumes the role of a young man named Wander who places the body of his beloved on a mysterious altar hidden in the wild.

During the game the player travels through a large and secluded area on the back of his horse Agro in search for clues that can lead him to the opponents. The combat with each opponent is a separate and very hard challenge, in which finding the weak points of a Colossus is the key to victory. The protagonist is well trained in using a sword and a bow. He can also climb not only on the surrounding, but on the bodies of the Colossi as well.

A third-person perspective fantasy action game created by Sony. It is one of the best-reviewed games in the history of PlayStation 2. Shadow of the Colossus follows a young traveler named Wander who explores a fantasy world on his horse. He is looking for a way to resurrect a girl burdened with a cursed fate. The only way to do it is by defeating the sixteen colossi that live in various regions of the world. The gameplay focuses solely on searching for the colossi and fighting them in epic, very challenging duels. Each of the enemies is many times larger than the main protagonist and must be defeated using a different strategy. The key to defeating them is to find their weak points and hit them with a sword enough times. Depending on enemy type, it might require the player to shoot arrows from a bow, climb on the giant body of the colossus or use the environments to his advantage.
