The various Colossi present their own set of challenges. Here they are, from easiest to toughest.
If you haven’t heard, Bluepoint Games’ PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus is really, really good. As is usually the case, we thought to rank the different Colossi in the game in order to difficulty, starting with the easiest and ending with the hardest. The difficulty of each battle was measured on the basis of the player having no knowledge of what to do. So with that, let’s take a look at these beautiful and dangerous forces of nature.
Valus is the very first Colossus you meet so as expected, even with his massive size, he’s not difficult to put down. Stab his calf and when he stops, climb up his body to attack his vitals. More than anything, Valus sets the tone for the mix of platforming and action that awaits.
