I recently bought Shadow of the Colossus and Devil May Cry 3, I'm a little bit of a weaboo for Japanese games...
Anyway, Shadow of the Colossus was amazing. Think Zelda without having to deal with npcs, long dungeons or...anything else than bossfights. The game is only about the boss fights to be honest.
16 bosses, one controlable character with only his trusty horse, his bow and a holy sword taking down huge beasts mad eout of rock, iron and fur. Awesome.
I've read a few reviews talking of how beautifull the colossi were, and how it was a pity to kill all of them for the sake of the girl the main character is tring to resurrect, yet I found myself enjoying the slaying of the beasts more fun than the plot.
Devil May Cry 3, was a little different. I was expecting it to be like Kingdom Hearts 2, which I plowed through on the hardest mode available, but instead I found it a little bit harder, but much more enjoable with a little bit less freaky story and setting.
Sure, big bad demons are omnipresent in the game, but at leas your weapon insn't an oversized key.
