If Tim Burton made an JRPG and it works

Kyle, Amazon

  • Summary: I would like to say this stories premise is not a bad concept but everything is basic JRPG elements in the game. In my mind this game is self aware it is a video game especially Shadow King Stan. He sometimes appears in front of your screen and you have to say some nice stuff about him in ab lib structure and it is a hit and miss. I would recommend those who are JRPG fans and/or Nightmare Before Christmas.

fun but confusing

  • Summary: This is a hilarious game with quirky characters and an entertaining story. The Tim Burton-esque character designs may not appeal to everyone, but I find they add to the game's charm. This is, of course, pretty old, so compared to recent games the graphics are lacking and the controls and screen layout can seem quite clunky at times. On top of this, the conveyance isn't great; it can be hard to figure out where to go next in the story.

Okage ~ Shadow King

Dyrou, Amazon
20 September 2004
  • Summary: A humerous, little-known RPG that parodies conventional RPGs. Plot You are an ignored teenager, whose sister falls under a Pig Latin curse...and this dire circumstance forces you into the spotlight. Your Father calls upon the spirit of a bottle to cure his Daughter...unbeknowst to any of you, he has summoned forth Evil King Stanley Hihat Trinidad XIV, who reigned as the tyrant, Evil King Gohma, 300 years ago.

Funny yet annoying

  • Summary: I've been RPG for quite awhile now but this RPG caught my mind. The story of this game is not utterly sophisticated because it's main attraction (I believe) is the comedy involved in the story. Most people who play RPG's look for sophisticated storylines and gameplay. This is a very simplistic version of a RPG game. It's not as great and grand of a game as the Final Fantasy series, but is worth renting. The storyline is nice but the gameplay is medicocre.

The "Non-traditional" Traditional RPG!!!

Howard DeVore, Amazon
29 October 2001
  • Summary: OK, in most RPGs the story is dark, sad, meaningful, or even spiritual. Okage's story in none of the above. Boy's sister is cursed with Pig Latin. Boy agrees to give his soul to an unkown evil in order to save his sister (even though her life is never in any danger). At first I thought this would be a great way to escape the deeper meaning of the more "serious" RPGs, but as time went on I found out that there is just not enough solid gameplay here to compensate for the...

Extremely Hilarious Though Questionablly Fun

Bruce Lee Pullen, Amazon

  • Summary: Okage: The Shadow King (Called "Me and the Demon King" in Japan) is a decidedly mixed bag of a video game experience that essentially delivers an especially memorable character in the Evil Shadow King Stan, who delivers some of the most definitely humorously droll dialogue seen in a video game for awhile, but inevitably falters in delivering an exceedingly entertaining Nightmare Before Christmas-segue video game experience.

Worst Problem? Definitely Load Times.

Ian, Amazon
13 October 2001
  • Summary: Okage is an could have been the best RPG on the PS2 with exceptional and kinda goofy graphics, interesting characters, and an AWESOME battle system. I love how all the characters attacked at once. The load times, though, take up all your time. Also, I couldn't really get into this RPG. I got so sick of Dungeon Crawling and and fighting those same urns every time to get to the final boss(though the urns do yeild much money and ep).
