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.
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.
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.
