Her task is to restore color (or 'life') to the world by destroying the monsters who have stolen it. Since Amaterasu is a diety, there are naturally people who worship her and people who don't. 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 the ultimate evolution of a classic. The Switch version makes no concessions, presenting everything that is expected from a port and going beyond to fit the (high) expectations of the platform. The end result is impeccable, but even if it wasn’t Amaterasu’s adventure would be recommended regardless.

    This Switch release is a highpoint, as it merges multiple different methods of control into one version, and can be played anywhere at any time. Ōkami is one of the highest expressions of a video game as art, further blurring the lines between the two. It’s not just a delightful game, it’s also a historically important one, and everyone owes it to themselves to experience Ōkami, either again or for the first time.

    An unequaled classic...A flawless and very playable port of one of the most enchanted fairytales of all times, in the unique suibokuga style.

    Like the other versions, the improvements in Okami HD for the Nintendo Switch are just audio and video related. But the touch and motion controls make this one the best versions of the original Clover game.

    Okami HD is an ode to folklore and Japanese legends. A tale crafted into a video game. An unforgettable adventure.

    I can’t say that Okami will make it into my all-time favorites, but it’s memorable nonetheless. Exploring Nippon and meeting all of its goofy, painted inhabitants makes up for the repetition of combat, but it’s a shame that it didn’t quit while it was ahead — the excessive length and repetitive combat only served to dampen the things it got right.

Highly recommended for lovers of Japanese culture and art. Expand

    The difficulty of fighting and puzzle-solving is a bit low, it's still a perfect artwork nonetheless.

    Ookami is a very cute game.
    This game is a welcome game for pet owners.
    Because the sun god of Japan becomes a wolf and goes on an adventure.
    He also has a good sense of action and hitting.
    And to the extent that it is the origin of Zelda's legend, the adventure method is much more than Zelda's legend.
    I don't know why this game doesn't have 100 Metascore points.
    I also liked the action using brush strokes.

    o jogo é otimo, graficos incriveis, uma otima jogabilidade e horas de gameplay, eu por exemplo ainda não zerei o jogo, mas mesmo não tendoo jogo é otimo, graficos incriveis, uma otima jogabilidade e horas de gameplay, eu por exemplo ainda não zerei o jogo, mas mesmo não tendo zerado achei otimo, obvio tem lados ruins como o fato do jogo te obrigar a usar o sensor de movimento no pincel, eu por exemplo jogo no pro controler(não sou fã de sensor de movimento) com certas dificuldades, outro ponto negativo é que as batalhas ficam muito repetitivas, sem contar o sitema para entrar nelas, acho que se as batalhas fossem como no The legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild que voce encontra os inimigos no mapa e começa a batalha com eles tendo a opção de fugir delas as batalhas seriam melhores, outra coisa não gostei é o fato do ter dialogos de mais, um bom exemplo disso é quando voce vai uma tecnica nova que para fasela voce precisa apertar o botão Y 4 vezes e jogo tira quase 1 minuto para explicar isso serio o jogo não podia falar ''aperte Y quatro vezes para um ataque mais forte''basicamente uma pura perda de tempo, tirando isso o jogo tem inumeros pontos positivos, como seu grafico que ja citei, e claro suas mecanicas, outra coisa incrivel é a falta de bugs de colizão que são muito comuns em jogos, basicamente um jogo que bate de frente com Mario Odyssey e The legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild.

The only thing I do not like about this game is its pace. In general, the pace is too slow, and characters' speaking speed is slow and the waiting is painful (I found this is a common problem in Japanese games).

    The artistic style, the play style (draw lines), the story (especiall the last few chapters), the journey to different places (village, city, palace, boat, under the sea, shrink to ant-size, etc.) are among the bests.

    Sometimes, the hint or guide inside this game is a little confusing or even misleading, and I would get frustrated when wasting over 30 minutes to solve an easy puzzle. For instance, in one puzzle, you have to draw a power slash instead of hitting the object with your head attack. After defeating Orochi for the first time, you have to try to leave the village 3 times until you can actual leave it; I have wasted over an hour trying to escape the festival and the village. etc... These tiny misguides drove me crazy.
