Okami HD

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Initially released for the PlayStation 2 in the autumn of 2006, Okami , Clover Studio's penultimate release, garnered significant critical acclaim but suffered from lackluster sales. Born unto the shadow of the recently launched PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii platforms, the game failed to gain traction outside of a small community of fervent supporters.

Okami HD

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Okami HD is huge. It is mega huge. It is Moto Moto from Madagascar 2 huge. And I am talking about the size of the game if you download it. We are talking over six gigs. I had to clear out many games from the Playstation 3 just to download Okami HD. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this game which is why I started with this tidbit of information.

  • Summary: Beautiful art, great soundtrack, now in stunning HD.
  • Pros: Looks stunning; excellent sound direction.
  • Cons: Combat does fill a bit stiff at times. Brushstrokes sometimes need to be quite precise to function properly. Combat seems a bit sluggish at times.

Okami HD

The Gamers Temple
3 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Okami is a title that has evaded me for the longest. I've constantly been busy with other games and have overlooked the praise and hype that the game gets from other reviewers. I'm happy to say that it's definitely a game that I have missed out on! Okami HD is available now on the PS store for $19.99. I haven't played the PS2 version or the Wii version, so Okami HD is my first chance at trying Okami. All I can say is, a 5-year old game just blew me away!

Okami HD

Square-Go
1 December 2012
  • Excerpt: The recent trend of re-releasing old games in HD has, for the most part, left me cold. For as much as I can recognise that Jet Set Radio looks lovely in 1080p, or that Beyond Good and Evil deserved a second shot on the market, the ports have so often felt lazy, incomplete, and ultimately unnecessary. Outdated mechanics dressed up in a hi-def lick of paint, and rushed out to soak up our money once again. Well, that was until Okami HD came along.

Okami HD

Playstation Illustrated
23 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Okami HD is a remake of the original PlayStation 2 game famous for its painted style of graphics. It’s basically a cel-shaded engine that makes things look like they’ve been painted down with a brush. Thick, bold, black lines outline everything, and a subtle paper texture is visible on just about everything. Amaterasu, the white wolf you play as, has a trail of flowers and vegetation that follow her every footstep, and red maple leaves fall from her feet as she jumps.

How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?

  • Conclusion: What's really amazing about Okami is that it is just as good of a game today as it was six years ago when it was first released. An HD release that barely had to touch a thing to still be one of the best games available today.
