Summary: Great game..better story than most...great graphics for the time! arrived in less than 5 days and was a reasonable price..thought it was going to be a new copy and it ended being a little bit used..Cd is pristine though!
Summary: I have a lot of respect for this game; it is my favorite one (but a few others come very close). My uncle gave this to me (along with a few other obscure games), and it was instantly addictive. My friend and I became obsessed with it--comparing everything to it, even random objects, not just other games. This is definitely worth the money. It is quite unusual for a plot: but one thing I love about this game is the way they do it.
Summary: Now that title might mislead you. I loved Okage. The battle system sucked. I'm sorry but it just did. The combat was on the strategic level of 'Rock Paper Scissors'. And every dungeon had urns. Lots of urns. Yes, urns. As in pottery. But, somehow the horrible game play was foregivable because of the story. It's strange, definitely not ordinary, and completely hilarious. I finnished Okage about a year ago and it still has a place in my heart.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised when I picked this game up. I really did not know what to expect from this game for the ... price tag it had. It was a great game with a good style of playing. It took some getting used to because it does have a unique battle system that allows you to have everyone attack one foe at once or even have them attack a different foe all at once. The previous reviews describe the game well, so I will skip that part.
Summary: The characters and their unique personalities are the best features of Okage. The graphics are good, the towns are designed quite well, the plot is good and original.. It's just that some parts of the game can be very frustrating, such as the many dungeons you have to get through. The battles can be tedious or pointless [because the enemy is killed in one hit]. Overall, it's a fun game, and a twist on the usual RPG.
Summary: Okage: Shadow King is a terrific game in that it breaks the usual "boy saves the world + girl from evil" formula we've been seeing for the past few years in console RPG's. It also boasts some of the most impressive visual styling (paying more than a little homage to Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas) and funniest dialog in any RPG within memory. Still, there are a few problems.
Summary: This game is one of the biggest suprises for me this year. I bought it the same day as MGS2 and never played through the game untill a few weeks ago. The game starts out a little tedius and the battle system is very simple. The story however, after about 15 hours of gameplay, is VERY VERY good. This was a huge suprise to me expecting it to just a game of run around kill the evil kings and bring back stan.
