  1. A must for any fan of Tim Burton's style of movies or those of us who like our games to sometimes be a little left of center.
  2. It's a trimmed down and dumbed-down RPG for younger players that just may find an adult audience with its sense of humor and hilarious story line.
  3. A wonderful mix of ironic humor, classic gameplay and gorgeous graphics.

    The game’s battles look nice and move quickly, but the character animation is stiff, and the menu is too clunky and confusing given the limited number of battle options at your disposal.
  5. If you want to play an RPG that doesn’t pretend to be a dramatic tale or one that won’t require a lot of your time, Okage is a good choice.
  6. While visually diverting, Okage is only slightly above average overall.
  7. 40
    The novelty of the premise wears thin after about an hour. This is not good, especially for a game that takes about 25 hours to complete.

    It's a great game, but you have to talk to some people over and over again at one time to get the info you need. Other than that it's great! Expand

    The RPG genre of home video games has not changed in nearly 20 years, and has become bloated and dull as a result. Okage is merely one more RPG, but it has the saving grace of being visually beautiful and having a humorously warped and witty plot. Expand
