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.
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.
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.
