Shadow of the Colossus Free on PS Plus This Week

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3)

The game that PlayStation Plus members will be able to download for free this week is the high-definition remake of Shadow of the Colossus, the PlayStation Blog has confirmed.

For the uninitiated, Shadow of the Colossus is a critically acclaimed action adventure game developed by Team Ico. In the game, you assume the role of young man called Wanda as he tries to defeat sixteen colossi to revive a princess. In my review, I called Shadow of the Colossus “an absorbing tale that oozes emotional resonance and leaves a lasting impression.”

But apart from the beloved cult classic, numerous games will be available at a discount this week. Some of them include Deadpool, Fast & Furious Showdown, Angry Birds: Trilogy, The Amazing Spider-Man, Prototype and Tony Hawk: Pro Skater HD. Also, a bunch of PSOne Classics will be cheaper than usual, including the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro series.
