    Fucking did it!

    Not sure it makes me want to bother with Time Attack though as that was a real frustration.

    Yeah don't think I will do time attack other than the few I have completed already to get some decent gear, started a hard run in new game + which I will do relatively casually I think.

    You can attack the second hand and it'll stop moving...

    Shit you can get through beating certain numbers in time trial - on the map screen if you select "items", it lists them.

    Yeah that is an absolute top tip, makes me reconsider the time trials now...

    Just killed number 8. Says 2 hours but I'm sure I started today before that. I can see why when it was released on ps2 it was a big deal but now it's just good or very good and not a classic. Great visuals and atmosphere, want to kill my horse when ever I want it to stop though.

    @Bichii You do know you can stop instantly right? Simultaneously pull back on the stick and hit whatever your Agro button is. The same starts you off into a gallop from stationary/walking.

    It would have been nice if the reminisce feature gave the option to play with the PS2 era graphics to actually, reminisce.

    13 down. Think I'll leave it for the day and finish it tomorrow. It's alright.

    Think I'm at the last one.
    Such a great effort in the remake as it looks like a new game. The lighting effects in particular.

    Does hard mode make it so you don't regen health? Found normal way too easy.

    This must have been so amazing on ps2.

    @Bichii

    it was quite incredible on release on ps2 - way ahead of its time compared with anything i;d played before...

    hard mode adds weak points on some colossi and you take much more damage per attack, including the potential for one shot death...enjoy!

    Yeah I think as I've only just played it it's lost a lot of its original magic from when it was so original.

    I beat the fifth one at the weekend. Lost count of how many times I fell off ha ha. It's a game to spend an hour or so on at a time tops I think. Any more than that the fucking dismal camera winds me up too much. But my god, such a beautiful game.

    @Bichii

    i think you're right...since this, we've had so many games where massive beats/bosses/enemies are order of the day that it's lost something of its individuality...but its influence is there...;)

    as i've said before, i'm just pleased to see so many people firing it up for the first time - on here, fb, other forums, wherever...it deserves the exposure - some will love it, some will like it, some will be indifferent or hate it...

    Yeah same here, I'm genuinely surprised so many people haven't played it before - I know people who literally borrowed PS2s to play it so assumed it was pretty widespread! But great that people are experiencing it now :)

    Started my hard playthrough and smashed the first three within 18 minutes according to the stats, wahey! Trophy for doing it in under 5 hours and 41 minutes (I think) which is my aim, off to a good start at the very least.

    Not really, it's nothing more than a boss rush game set in a foggy, empty world with a framerate that could frequently hit single digits (and with worse controls to boot).

    This is a wonderful interpretation but the original was poop.

    @Humperfunk the timer must be off because I'm on the last boss and I says I'm about five hours but I've definitely played longer. Hopefully still get that trophy though.

    Beat this last night. Just lovely. Can't believe it's only Ł24.

    I'd completely forgotten what happens in the ending. All through the rest of the game I was "oh I remember this now", but the ending was like I was watching it for the first time. I KNOW I completed it on PS2. Did they change anything?

    Oh and Wander's face stopped bothering me eventually. I think the thing where his appearance gradually changes addresses this for the most part.

    I will say though, I preferred the lighting in the original. Not on a technical level of course, but the overall aesthetic with the intense bloom and the slightly washed out dream-like appearance seems to have been binned in favour of something more realistic. I wouldn't have minded a filter or something to recreate the effect of the original. Something for a patch maybe.

    @Psiloc

    nope, as far as i remember, the ending was exactly the same...though i do remember it catching me a little by surprise the first time i played the ps3 version which was after a long break from the ps2 one...

    i know what you mean about the realism/dream-like contrast...i think there are a fair few clamouring for that sort of filter...

    Oh my fucking god the last boss nearly made me smash the ps4. Up until the point you get to its back it was fun. From then on the fucking camera was constantly utter utter shit. Can't remember how many times it went wrong simply because the camera was never even okay, plus the average controls were really highlighted through out the fight.

    Right this is gonna be obvious but, fudge it it’s doing my head in. I’ve never used a photo mode in any game before, how the hell do you save your shots!?
