Right, we’re going back a generation now. Right the way back to actually one the single best games I have ever played… ever! And this is for Day 04 – Your favorite soundtrack to a game.
This soundtrack is present even when it cannot be heard. The music, which plays during the epic battles with the Colossi, is made more powerful by the virtual silence players experience while traveling across the barren landscape. After such a long time in a virtual sensory deprivation tank, the appearance of each behemoth is made even more epic as the orchestra swells. And yet, somehow, we are more alone than ever. And for the sheer emotive power of the music in this game I show infinite respect to composer Ko Otani and the Shadow of the Colossus original soundtrack.
So unpack that PS2 and get down to your nearest game trade centre and pick up a copy of this astounding piece of work
