I have never played Ico, but I recall that the creators said that these two games are supposed to give to the player the same feeling, so if you disliked Ico you probably won't enjoy Shadow of the Colossus very much.
Still, Shadow of the Colossus is definitely a game worth checking out, and I'd suggest you to give it a shot.
I think that an online review might give you much better insight than I can about the game itself, still it's worth saying that the greatness of this game lies in the little details one might not actually notice at first, that allow it to create, rather than a plot, an emotional background to the game.
