About Shadow of the Colossus

The game focuses on Wander, a young man who must travel across a vast expanse on horseback and defeat sixteen giant beings collectively known as colossi to restore the life of a lifeless girl. The game is unusual within the action-adventure genre in that there are no towns or dungeons to explore, no characters with which to interact, and no enemies to defeat other than the colossi. Shadow of the Colossus has been described as a puzzle game, as each colossus' weakness must be identified and exploited before it can be defeated.
