That’s a minor grievance though, a single patch of cloud in an otherwise beautiful blue sky of a game. If you’ve played Okami before, I promise it’s just as good -if not better- than you remember. If you’ve never spent any time with this game, though? Good god, what are you waiting for? Okami is art in motion, a triumph of gameplay and graphics that will hole up in your brain for months and years to come. Either way, Okami is an easy, wholehearted recommendation for me to make.
Okami was criminally overlooked back in the day, in spite of how well received it was- a great many people never got to play it, which is a crying shame. Okami HD, however, is the perfect opportunity to experience one of the most innovative and enjoyable games of the last few years. It’s rare to come across a game that is over a decade old that somehow manages to feel perfectly in line with the quality of experiences you’d expect even today, but that is exactly what Okami HD is.
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?
