I don't think sotc has aged well, but that sounds pretty bad. Which colossus did you stop on?#7 I think. The one which climbs up walls.
Spoiler for Hidden:
I saw in the Era thread, and with reviews, that people are still loving it and that with the remake its managed to age very well and is still a masterpiece in the modern age. But I just can't see where that's coming from at all. I just don't think there's much good about this game at all. It feels like a game which is supposed to be very high quality, and thinks it is, but just fails at almost everything its trying to do.
