|Dajefe70||Perfect! First Heavy Rain for $16, now ICO and SOTC. I guess when you're years late to the game, you can really get a good deal.|

|ImpactPlayer||I played Ico a few years ago on PS2 and thought it was decent. I have been trying to get into SOTC and I just can't. Tried playing it upon release for PS2 and recently bought this collection to give it a whirl, but I haven't progressed beyond the 4th or 5th colossi. Unfortunately, I just don't think it is my type of game|

For people reading the complaints about the control interface from people that thought they were terrible, the controls aren't bad, they are just more complex than they would be for a more casual experience.
In an interview from a few years ago, the developer of the games said they made the controls more complex (difficult) to provide the player more of a sense of the task at hand. For example, in Shadow of the Colossus (sotc), you climb mountains, buildings and giant, skycraper-size creatures, so to convey the difficulty and complexity of scaling such large objects, the controls are intentionally complicated.
Summary: The controls are a bit more complex than they need to be and some people find them difficult, but the complex controls are part of the game design, so the player gets a sense of difficulty regarding the in-game action.
With that being said, these games aren't traditional action games. They are slow and tedious adventure games that are character and story driven minus all the dialogue. They are very enjoyable games but not necessarily pickup and play ones.

Just cause its easier to get info now when you get stuck doesn't mean the games are worse. Some are mindless but others are just as hard as the old stuff.

For those that don't like either Ico or Shadow, you must be younger gen of gamers. Those old games are about spending time with the surroundings and know them. They were not about run though and do the obvious things because you have other "100" games waiting to be played.
If you go even further back to very old PC adventure classic games, I remember getting stuck at a few "screens" for days or weeks because I couldn't figure out what to do. It's all about taking the time to study every "screen" or location to gather clues what to do next. And then some had "pixel" hunting.

Front Page deals arent based on dealworthiness anymore, they are based on how much money SD makes from the vendor click-throughs. Been like this for at least a year now.

|timobkg||I loved these games on PS2. I didn't have any problems with the controls, and that was as a PC gamer who was pretty new to PS2 games.|

Thanks OP, been looking to pick this up for remote play for a while now.
I noticed that Fry's has it for $14.99 but for in-store pick up only and the majority of locations (around me that is) are pretty much sold out.

|starfox_387||Great deal! Thanks OP. Been wanting this for Remote Play.|

|Pedantyc||This is also playable through Remote Play on the Vita. A little jumpy at times, but any portable SOTC is a win in my book.|

|myadidas1981||Anybody tried these games with remote play? Run OK?|
