Shadow of the Colossus
The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection (known in PAL regions as The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Classics HD) is a video game bundle that contains high-definition remasters of two PlayStation 2 games, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, for the PlayStation 3. Developed by Bluepoint Games, who assisted in the remastering alongside SCE Japan Studio and its division Team Ico, the bundle provides support for high-definition monitors, higher frame rates, stereoscopic 3D, and additional features for the PlayStation Network. The two games, while fundamentally different in gameplay and story, are thematically connected, with Shadow considered a spiritual sequel to Ico. Both games were critically acclaimed on their original release, while the remastered collection itself was positively praised by reviewers.
Only options that deviate from the default configuration to ensure best performance are listed below. The full list of default options is available here.
|Renderer||Vulkan||Recommended to get the best performance.|
|Resolution scale||100||Resolution scaling is not supported for these titles.|
|Driver wake-up delay||250||Setting this value to 250us should fix random crashes, you may need to set it a bit higher on low-end systems but don't go too high as it will hurt performance. We recommend staying below 500us.|
There are no reported issues with this title.
SPU MLAA patch
Thanks to Whatcookie, an SPU MLAA removal patch is available for this title. This can improve the framerate, but will cause the image to appear more aliased.
