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.

    Um game tão revolucionário em sua época que ainda permanece incrível nos dias de hoje!

    Um dos jogos mais injustiçados da historia!

    Okami HD is a brilliantly concieved game, and despite some signs of age the remake still holds up incredibly well today. The biggestOkami HD is a brilliantly concieved game, and despite some signs of age the remake still holds up incredibly well today. The biggest inspiration of this game is from the legend of zelda series; you have an action-platforming foundation with light puzzles and rpg progression that is generally fuelled by fulfilling side quests and collectables. It borrows in more ways than mentioned from a formula that has garnered so much acclaim - but what seperates it is the watercolour painting visual style of the environment, which you then interact with by using drawn patterns within the game. The characters and story are lovable, and exploring the world feels so purposeful and rewarding because you are rewarded both visually and economically for restoring the landscape back to life. The game suffers occasionally from camera issues that can make it uncomfortable to play. Many people also reference the opening cutscene and future dialogue as tedious. I would like to say that all text and cutscenes can be skipped/sped up, and even if you couldn't skip that cutscene, I would argue you don't have much patience if you can't wait through 8-9 minutes for it to end. most of the characters in the game are so quirky and likeable that you won't want to skip much if any of it. At $20 on steam this is a steal, i've finished the game on the wii and in the hd version and loved it both times through. 9.7/10. A classic. Expand

    To all the kids who has been writing negative reviews here, please go back to playing call of duty, it's obvious you kids these days only likeTo all the kids who has been writing negative reviews here, please go back to playing call of duty, it's obvious you kids these days only like games with cheap thrills, microtransactions and day one DLC. 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

    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.
