If you haven’t already gathered, Okami HD is an utterly fantastic piece of software, and we feel you’d be doing yourself a disservice to pass on it. For a mere twenty bucks, you can have access to a 40-hour adventure that emulates Zelda wonderfully, adds in plenty of memorable mechanics, features one of the most memorable art styles in gaming, and is completely playable on the go, to boot.

Okami HD is a wonderful, exciting adventure that’s beautifully presented. Although the paintbrush mechanic can still be frustrating, the Nintendo Switch offers its best implementation of any platform. The game’s linear progression, on the other hand, very much shows its age; those who have enjoyed Breath of the Wild and Skyrim on the Switch may not welcome the return to hand-held adventuring. But if you allow yourself to get drawn into this colorful world and its story of a goddess wolf and her tiny, smart-aleck friend (seriously, don’t call him a bug), you’ll find that Okami HD is well worth the 40-hour investment even if you’ve invested it before.

If you haven’t played it, you should. Plain and simple. It’s worth your time, though you’ll be feeling how much time you’ve spent with it after it has consumed roughly 40 hours of your time once the credits finally roll. On that note, I’d like to take the chance to remind you to take occasional breaks and rest your eyes… I didn’t. They were too busy drinking in Okami’s gorgeousness. Okami is like a clock without hands: timeless.

An all-round beautiful game that has been made even more beautiful by the passage of time. Its availability on so many other platforms may not necessarily make this version a must-have, but for Switch owners, it’s definitely a must-play. For those who have never experienced it, this version is the ultimate. The $20 price tag doesn’t hurt it one bit either. But maybe I’m just a big ol’ softie.

It is also great that Okami does not suffer from the dreaded ‘Switch Tax’, costing just $19.99, the same price as it is on the other current generation counterparts. Whether you fancy something a little different, or want to revisit a classic then grab yourself Okami and have a howling good time.

One of the only bad points I can think of - and trust me, I’ve been racking my brains to try and find one - is that sometimes the dialogue can go on for a bit too long. But that’s it. That is literally the only negative thing about Okami. It’s finally found its perfect console, blurring the line between player and game to an unmatched degree.

This is something to check out, especially if you missed out on it in the past. Okami is as polished as a Zelda-like experience as they come and the Switch port is close to its best realization. If you’ve played it through before, there’s nothing new here for you other than the soft warmness of a pleasant visual presentation and a smartly made adventure that stands up to the test of time. Okami HD is wonderful.

Stunning watercolour graphics, huge 30+ hour adventure filled with sub quests. Celestial brush is a great idea and works perfectly in handheld mode. Okami is a hard game to get tired of though, even on the fifth time round, in large part thanks to the visuals, which prove that while graphics may age good art never does.

Okami HD is a silky smooth port of a beautiful game which takes advantage of the Switch's capabilities and doesn't charge you and arm and a leg for it.
Shane Jury — Aug 22, 2018
Marking its first outing on a handheld device, Okami HD retains all of the elegance and charisma from even its non-HD days, packing it all into an epic adventure with a budget price and intuitive control inputs. There is a degree of repetition involved with certain battles and events, but even this takes little away from the tale that unfolds.

Además, poder utilizar el control táctil o el sensor de movimiento para hacer la experiencia más satisfactoria siempre es una buena noticia, pues estamos ante una de las aventuras con sabor The Legend of Zelda más mágicas y diferentes que hemos tenido el placer de disfrutar. Y es que hablar de uno de los juegos más destacados de la carrera de Hideki Kamiya son palabras mayores.
MIGUEL ÁNGEL ESCUDERO — Aug 08, 2018
La versión para Nintendo Switch de Okami HD se convierte en la mejor remasterización del título creado por Hideki Kamiya. Un apabullante y hermoso cuento tradicional japonés convertido en videojuego. Un magnífico apartado visual y una soberbia banda sonora cierran todo un homenaje a una ancestral cultura.
Álvaro Alonso — Aug 08, 2018
Okami presenta en Nintendo Switch los mismos cambios que el resto de versiones HD... Para bien y para mal. Para bien porque se ve de fábula, y para mal porque arrastra los errores del original. Pero los controles táctiles/por movimiento y el poder jugarlo en cualquier parte, lo convierten en la mejor versión del juego lanzada hasta la fecha.

On va être francs : cette version Switch est probablement la meilleure version existante d’Okami. Le lissage graphique est évidemment appréciable, mais c’est surtout le jeu au doigt qui apporte un plus non-négligeable. Plus précis, plus naturel, il corrige le seul véritable gros défaut du jeu original, faisant de cette version un must-have absolu pour celles et ceux qui ne connaissent toujours pas Okami.
Henrique Pereira — Sep 10, 2018
Mesmo em 2018 Okami HD continua a ser uma grande aventura, alavancada por um conceito e temática baseados na cultura tradicional japonesa que estão muito bem desenvolvidos em todas as vertentes do jogo, proporcionando assim uma jornada única por um Japão que dá vontade de explorar.

Una nuova versione di un gioco che ha sicuramente ottenuto meriti indiscussi per la creatività e le tecniche di gioco innovative, considerando anche lo sbarco di queste nel lontano 2006. Speravamo però che questa versione, per quanto regga bene la doppia giocabilità su console e tv, apportasse qualche miglioria nella localizzazione e poche altre sbavature in un quadro ben dipinto dal pennello di Capcom.
Marco Perri — Aug 12, 2018
Nuovamente, Capcom dimostra di aver capito che l'opera di Kamiya merita ancora più pubblico potenziale, per questo motivo il port su Switch - oltre a essere stato effettuato nella maniera corretta - rafforza le speranze di un seguito nel futuro. Giroscopio e portabilità colorano di una tinta diversa il brand, completandolo e mettendo teoricamente il punto a una lunga serie di raffinamenti.
