IGN Preview | Okami HD is Eye-Wateringly Gorgeous


Not many games are good enough to justify releasing three times, but Okami is one of them. Released for the first time on the PlayStation 2 in 2006, it was exceptional in every way: astonishingly beautiful to look at, massive in scope, playful and inventive in its gameplay. Casting you as a wolf-god named Amaterasu in a stunningly rendered, ink-on-paper ancient Japan, it lets you change and augment the world with a magical paintbrush, freezing everything to a papyrus-scroll still at the touch of a button and letting you draw lines and circles and shapes to slice through tall bamboo stalks, bring a bomb out of the ether to blow up a wall and bring dead, withered trees back to life in a shower of blossoms.
