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 was a masterpiece of game design when it was first released, it was a masterpiece in its various remasters and it remains a gaming masterpiece in this edition for the PS4.

    This HD remake brings all the beauty and fun of the original to several new platforms, and while there are a few issues (such as the camera and the annoying voices), the strength of the overall package makes it easier to ignore them in favor of all the things the game does right. Whether you're a fan of the original PS2 version or someone who has never played the game before, Ōkami HD is absolutely worth adding to your library.

    On one hand Okami HD is still a brilliant game that any gamer must beat, but on the other hand it hasn't much evolved from the PS3 version that came out 5 years ago. Like with many remasters, go for it if you haven't played it, skip it if you already have.

    Okami is a great adventure set in Japanese folklore, which shows an amazing ukiyo-e graphic style and feels unique in its brush gameplay. 4K resolution for PS4 PRO and Xbox One X is great, but we still miss 60 FPS option.

    Even though there aren’t too many new features to justice this re-release, Ammy’s quest to defeat Orochi and cleanse the world of corruption is still every bit as compelling as it was a decade ago, and to those unfamiliar, this is the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the most adorable wolf goddess you’ve never heard of. So how about that sequel, eh, Capcom?

    Although the new remastered does not stand out for audacity, Okami remains a masterpiece of stainless beauty.

    There’s a lot of content in Okami HD. Unfortunately, interacting with the wealth of characters, locations, and collectibles becomes more of a chore when the story and action is so repetitive. Despite the different coat of paint, each new encounter felt like the last. The colors began to fade around the halfway point, and the game just kept painting without adding anything new to the page.

Dissatisfied with the poormakes games like this anymore, taking wild risks while at it. The gamble didn’t pay off with the original release. Dissatisfied with the poor sales, Capcom decided to stall Clover Studio and merge it with in-house teams. The key personnel escaped the merger and went on to form PlatinumGames. As they say, the rest is history. Now that 2017 saw Japanese games taking back the respect they deserve, I hope Ōkami HD too will find its audience. After all these years after the original game’s release, I have no qualms in awarding Ōkami HD a perfect score. If only I had given it a chance back then Expand

    I'm having the best time playing this gorgeous, evolving adventure.

    Overwhelmingly impressed by the pacing of the gameplay, the unpredictable puzzles, the meditative art direction, the lovely soundtrack and the mixture of traditional mythology/cheeky self awareness. It's such gamer's game, with great attention to the progression. Also, finally a game I can play in front of my children!

    Im quite impressed. The art is beautiful. But let me hit a few key points. The bad but not terrible points. You paint obviously and you canIm quite impressed. The art is beautiful. But let me hit a few key points. The bad but not terrible points. You paint obviously and you can use the touchpad or the right analog stick. The touchpad does a bad job delivering. Stick to the stick unless your superhuman. Its not quite as graphically beautiful as they could of made it for an HD on PS4 it should've definitely had a windwaker HD feel to the graphics instead of just a hd port. But its still incredible to look at. But it deserve a Remaster because it's a diamond game. It's definitely comparable to the 3D LOZ games. Right down to the musical tone when you reveal a hidden path. HOWEVER!, Okami is certainly it's own masterpiece. Its strongpoints are the flow of the controls. Its fun controlling the pooch. You'll find yourself jumping on rocks you dont have to. It all feel smooth. For a game with no spoken dialogue (think BanjoKazooie), The characters are a huge plus. They're are some funny ones, cute ones, and outrageous ones. Its all based on legends and mythology of Japan, whats not to love. Do yourself a favor. Pick this gem up. No Regrets! Expand

The Japanese-inspired graphics look great to this day, the drawing mechanic works great and they have a lot of fun coming up with a bunch of unique ways to use it, and there’s plenty of game here for you to sink your teeth into, even if the pacing does feel a bit disjointed at times. As someone who never played this game until this release, I can safely say that Okami made me howl with laughter and joy. Expand
