Shadow of the Colossus: First Playthrough

I feel very conflicted concerning this game.  The attention given to visuals, music, and plot are so strong but the controls and camera drive me crazy.  Battles with the colossi feel sweeping, epic, and satisfying when you eventually defeat them.  Time attack, however, feels entirely unforgiving and demands perfection of you, making its flaws really stand out.

The quality of the stronger points (music, graphics, story) outweigh the bad though, and I am willing to give the game the benefit of the doubt (which is why this game gets a 4/5 versus a 3/5.)  The scale of the battles is incredible and in combination with the aesthetic beauty and cohesion it creates a distinctively memorable experience.  Even with the flaws, if you ever have the opportunity play this game do it.
