Gaius is widely considered to be one of the most memorable boss fights in The shadow of the colossus. Due to his humanoid form and ability to use simple weapons, his design stands out from many of the game’s other opponents. To overthrow the titan, players must entice Knight to attack with his giant sword, using it as an impromptu bridge to climb up on his arm. From there, they will have to climb around his body and look for magical seals that indicate his vulnerable areas. These include one on his stomach, another on the back of his left arm and one last point on the top of his head.
Originally released in 2005 for PlayStation 2 and developed by Japan Studio and Team Ico, The shadow of the colossus became an instant cult classic. Players are tasked with finding and killing 16 giant colossi in the hope that their deaths will revive a mysterious woman known only as Mono. Wander, the voiceless protagonist, has just a sword and archery set to reach his goal, accompanied by his trusted horse mate Agro.
The shadow of the colossus proved to be such a resounding success with both fans and critics that a high-definition remake of Bluepoint Games was released for PlayStation 4. This version of the game was launched in 2018 and had reworked controls and a wide range of upgraded visual settings and graphic options.
