Så har då de första recensionerna på nätet dykt upp. GameSpot ger det 8,7 av 10 och skriver som positivt:
"Unparalleled, larger-than-life action. Stunning aesthetic presentation across characters and landscape. Engrossing, otherworldly sense of place."
"Some technical issues mar the superb visuals. A little on the short side. Controls can be a touch unwieldy."
1Up ger det hela 9,5 av 10 och skriver:
"In short, Shadow of the Colossus breaks storytelling barriers none of us knew existed. It's the rare game for which the often overused words "ground-breaking" were truly reserved for, and it's enough to make you regret every stupid coin you ever collected. There's more to gaming than rote clichés and borrowed ideas, and Shadow of the Colossus is kind enough to remind us of what could be. You really couldn't ask for better than that. Besides merely being one of gaming's great moments, this is the experience of the year."
