Okami HD is easily one of the best Capcom comeback titles from their impressive portfolio. The distinct art style and visual palette is as dominant today as it was eleven years ago, and it’s aged incredibly well as a result. The gameplay holds up brilliantly by standards today despite some issues with repetitive combat and a wonky camera. Okami’s story is well told and an absolute joy to trek through, offering up an intriguing plot that’s full of life and colour.
Fighting demons is just the thing you do in between exploring this beautiful world. That’s when Okami is at its best, when you’re in open fields, bustling villages and hazardous dungeons. When you’re revisiting familiar ground to find new secrets or stepping foot in new lands. If you haven’t yet played Okami before, do yourself a favour and check it out. You won’t regret it.
Okami HD might still have some of its original niggling annoyances, but in a way, it wears these on its sleeve. Titles like this are very rare, and are becoming less and less likely to be made with every passing year, as publishers are opting for more homogeneously designed releases. When Clover was around, it strove for interesting and eclectic action games, like God Hand and Viewtiful Joe.
