OK, so I didn’t actually play this one, but I watched the whole thing one cold and hung-over winter Sunday and it was beautiful. There is little I can do to convey the comfort I felt watching this little warrior as he ventured through the exquisitely designed landscapes en route to Colossi upon beautiful Colossi. The only thing I can think of that rivals it is the joy I feel watching the slaughter of each of these stunning creatures, one by one, at the hand of his sword, striking tirelessly against their glowing life sacks, or whatever the hell those things are.
