The more people who worship her (as a result of her restoring color and doing other good deeds for them), the more powerful she becomes. Expand

    Okami HD is a fantastic game that I cannot recommend enough; at its $19.99 price tag, that is practically giving the game away.

    Aside from a few minor gripes and this re-release of the game not offering much else from the 2012 PlayStation 3 re-release (other than higher resolutions and the return of loading screen mini-games), Okami HD is still a near-perfect game. If you haven't already beaten or played it yet, then now is a better time than ever before..Unless you're waiting for a Nintendo Switch port.

    Okami was a high point of the PS2 era, fusing its action to an incredible art style that was years ahead of its time. It takes a bit to get moving from the opening section, but every new area is packed with things to do with little wasted space to be found and it doesn’t seem to ever stop growing. New areas bring new abilities that open up more options, both for solving puzzles in the world and taking out enemies, and there’s always something happening to pull you a little bit farther along the story. Okami HD is close to being the perfect version of the original game, sharp and crisp and beautiful in a way we could only have dreamed of when it first came out.

    Okami combines typical Zelda-like gameplay with an extraordinary art style and a world full of interesting mythology.

    If you liked playing games from Platinum Games, which are now also found on the PC, Okami HD is also essential in your game library.

Okami is easily one of the most beautiful experiences in gaming, when people are talking about "Art in videogames" I think of Okami, something you cod kids will never understand. So please, go spread your toxic behavior someplace else. Expand

A wonderful piece of work that most games can't even compare to. I am truly impressed by the amount of time the designers took to digitally render the UI and the game. Much better than other indie games that I have played. Expand

    Wonderful characters, a candid story and an enjoyable adventure.
    It's of course inspired by Zelda: Ocarina of Time. But it does such a good job that it just doesn't matter.

    A little too easy.

    Ha envejecido bastante bien teniendo en cuenta los años que tiene. Lo único malo es que no tiene dificultad alguna.
