Summary

Okami comes alive through beautiful scenic 3D levels that have the appearance and texture of paper scrolls brushed with watercolor-like calligraphy art. Playing as Amatarasu, the sun goddess who takes on the form of a wolf, your goal is to bring life back to the world. Bringing life back to the world involves defeating lots of beasts. With each beast you defeat, the world's life force is restored just a bit, with colors and eventually people appearing.

Okami HD is an incredible value, offering absolutely gorgeous visuals, fluid Zelda-like gameplay, and an intriguing story filled with Shinto lore to boot. It remains one of the best games on the Playstation 2 and can now be considered one of the best games on the Playstation 3. Capcom broke out their calligraphy brush and created a masterpiece that, while shows some signs of aging, remains an awe-inspiring experience like no other.

Okami is one of the finest games to come out of Japan in the last decade, and Okami HD is absolutely the best way to experience this epic adventure. Its re-release is rather timely too, given Japanese game publishers are currently preoccupied with creating games that will appeal in the West. Okami, in contrast, represents a pure, resolutely Japanese vision, and is all the more appealing for it.

With updated graphics and a campaign stretching 30 to 50 hours, all for $20, this is a steal for anyone looking for a game that takes a lighthearted approach to the Legend of Zelda formula of dungeon puzzle solving and land exploration. Okami HD is a great example of what games can accomplish outside the realm of guns and gore, and I love it for that.
