I'm so happy, its my favourite game by a country mile and I thought he would tear it a new one.
Nice to know he can appreciate good things... now if he'd only reconsider his oblivion review.

You know what? I was just thinking that I'd really like to see a retroactive review from Yahtzee. My favorite reviews are always the ones where he really liked the game he's reviewing. Now he just needs to review Deus Ex and I'll be happy for at least a good solid week.

I would like to join Yahtzee in his "no to Starcraft 2" club house. I may play some RTS games, but I'm not going to bother with it just because its so popular. I'll stick to my old Westwood Studios RTS games, thanks.

And I have to agree that SOTC was a "Damn Good" game. If only we could have more "Damn Good" games...

"[Fighting a SotC Boss] is a game-playing experience that clicking your marines over to the Zerg stronghold can't really match."

Straw-Man much, Yahtzee?

scoopsss:
bitch bitch whine whine

Yeah, not everyone likes your fave game, get over it.

Damn fanboys.

Just so everyone knows:
Shadow of the Colossus is perfectly playable on the PC (medium/hi gaming rig) using PCSX2!

Just finished it myself about 1 month ago.
It's not just a game, it's an experience! :)

great video as always, but wtf is with the ending?

pha! like you're not a Yahtzee fanboy

Man, I was hoping for a Split/Second review, as he said a while ago that he had been playing it. But still, now I want to go out and pick up this game to play... and a PS2 to play it in... if only so I don't get attacked by the people who love it so much.

And here's looking forward to no Starcraft 2 review from Yahtzee.

Yeah i was hoping for Split/second too, I'm really curious whether he'll tear it apart or love it.

Personally i think it's great fun!

An awsome reviw for an awsome game.

This is the second time this week that Escapist staff have displayed their ignorance of how sex chromosomes work. How strange.

I really liked this one. It's nice to see Yahtzee praise and manage to still be highly comedic. I'd like to see more reviews like this.

See this is what Yahtzee should be doing more of, this (almost) retro review was great. He should stop almost forcing himself into doing new games all the time, and maybe every three weeks just pull something like this, some game you would find at Gamestop now for five dollars it's so old. This was probably his best one since FF13.

I must admit I agree with him on the Starcraft 2 front, I just don't care about RTS games all that much any more and can't be bothered with all of the hype around it.

Never played shadow of the colossus, probably not going to. But it's nice to see there's games out there that he doesn't hate.

the vid isnt working for me :(

You know, for a video game reviewer he sure is adamant about not playing video games.

Unfortunate you won't give Starcraft II a try, its more then /build 10 billion marines /move to zerg base.

Especially SCII who for me was very immersive. Don't understand your gripes about Strategy games, its like your compare all shooters with doom or Quake. 'ZOMG enemies run at me and I shoot them and they go dead' the game. The only strategies you reviewed were a weak Halo console strategy game(a shooter made into a strategy game) and a crossbreed adventure game.

Shadow of the Colluses looked nice, nice review overall.

it is an awesome game. i remember the flying snake thing.

KingPiccolOwned:
The end line was epic XD

Reminds me of an old 'A Bit of Fry and Laurie' sketch:

Good review, but any game that doesn't bow down to the PC master race is a sin in itself! Seriously though, kinda sucks not to be able to play some awesome games when they don't make a PC version as I'm just not into consoles :(

Damn, and you almost got a friend from me, but your damn snobbishness has ruined it (and I play SCII and other such computer games)....... jk.

It is a damn good game but not one of my favorits irronically. One of my overall favorites was for the PS 1 Thousand Arms. It a JRPG game, simple to play and funny as hell

Boring and pointless, whats it going to be next week Crash Bandicoot?

I really don't like that game...but eh, entertaining video anyways.

He reviews an classic PS2 game? I bet most people already and went apeshit about this entire ordeal. Good job Yahtzee!

SoTC is one of my favorite games for the ps2. I loved it from beginning to end.

Kingsman:
WHOO! He finally reviews a game I actually have!

This one looked like it was just gonna fly under the radar, and it's gratifying to see it finally get its just desserts.

wow, you don't get around the internet gaming society much. I've been reccomended Shadow of the Collosus countless times and have heard of how awesome it is so often (i still haven't played it, can't get my hands on a copy, and sorry guys, i don't buy off the internet as i lack a credit card/parents-who-support-my-hobby). So it only ever flew under the radar of those who only started playing games during the Xbox360 Halo/COD trend. and also the grandma's who play Bejeweled and the wii.

On topic, its odd how Yahtzee's description of the Collosus made me thing about some of the Monsters you get to fight at later stages in Monster Hunter. Sorry if i set down some firewood, i'll just leave it at that.
Oh, and i didn't Enjoy the game "ico" when i played it. maybe i was too young to appreciate it though.

And thus my bafflement over how overrated Shadow of the Colossus is soldiers on.

finally a game we can both agree on is fantastic

Seeing this review made me sad that my PS2 is bricked.
*sigh* good times....

OMG he actually reviewed it!! and he likes it :)

One of the best games ever.

Damn good indeed!

It's popular... therefore you're not going to play it? That is terrible logic, and I hope you never get to play a good game ever again.

Anyway, while I don't care if Yahtzee reviews SCII or not (I mean, I already love the game, so it'd be nice to get a few laughs about it), it's really pathetic that he had to go back to a 2005 game just to avoid reviewing it. this is one of the most anticipated games ever, and he's just putting his fingers in his ears and shouting so he doesn't have to acknowledge it.

Damien Havok:
I guess SC II can just keep sucking it then?

No, not just StarCraft 2. All RTS games in general.

This was a damn good review. Damn damn good. Etcetera.

Rogthgar:

HEY, I think it's time Yahtzee reviewed some older games. that way we can comment on what game we want him to review next instead of picking the obvious new game that just came out. Plus I get a bit of that nostalgia feeling.

as normal Good job hateing, th g, wait you liked it!
*head implode's*
