This game reminds me of Shadow of Colossus

I just finished the first tower and I couldn't help but compare the story to SoC. I mean, guy has to save girl, and to do so, he has to take down some big (and innocent) monsters who are just minding their own business. Anyone else feel the basic premises for the stories are similar?

Yeah I made that connection as well. Mario and Aeron are both silent protagonists, fighting for their ladies and all.

Not only that, but they are racing against time or at least some form of it. It's so totally intense.

A lot of people mention getting an SoTC-esque vibe from this game. I did too.

Same here, and vibe is a great way to say it. They're quite different games, but there IS a vibe, for sure.

How does a game breaking glitch remind you of Shadow of the Colossus?

Sorry guys it was just too easy...

Because the glitch is annoying, and what is more annoying than having climbed to the top of the 15th Colossus (if you played this game you know how hard getting on this guy is), and then he knocks you off! Or how about the 16th, after 20 minutes of climbing up this guy you fall off the edge? And it's a big fall.

Kudos for actually making a connection between the two! Very impressed.

Better than I would have done

I just started playing this game today, and I'm also getting a huge SOTC vibe. Both games have a sense of desolation in their locations. And the biggest similarity to me is the bosses. In this, the first boss didn't attack until I made the first move. He was just walking around peacefully and only attacked to defend himself, much like the colossi in SOTC.

Good gameplay can easily salvage a bad story. Good story can never save bad gameplay.
The best games, however, have both.
