Shadow of the Colossus Quick Tips

  • Take your time as you explore the world, and always keep an eye out in new areas. You never know when something you’ll need to find is hidden in plain sight.
  • Climbing can be one of the best ways to get around, and you can hold onto things by pressing and holding down the R2 button. You can also jump from ledge to ledge by pressing and holding X to look around, and then letting go to jump.
  • You can ride your horse by walking up to it and pressing X or Triangle. Pressing Triangle will allow you to speed up the horse, and you can steer it using the joysticks on the controller.
  • You can lift your sword up while in direct sunlight and direct a beam of light at enemies to determine their vitals.
  • Look out for weak spots that glow on Colossi. This is your only indication of where to attack enemies for the quickest kill.
