Okami HD Review | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "I would be extremely surprised if I play a better downloadable game in 2012. Okami has aged extraordinarily well. The gameplay is actually far more imaginative, intuitive and enjoyable than most of the post-Majora Zelda titles. It is very easy to forgive just how many tropes Clover pinched from Nintendo here, and it stands as almost a homage, much the same as Cave Story also stole wholesale from the games that influenced it, yet made a brilliantly unique take on the genre. It is a game that seemingly few people played the first time around, and Capcom are taking a gamble on whether the class of 2012 are going to want to shell out for this PSN download. Quite simply put, Okami is an essential purchase. It gives you around sixty hours of the most beautiful gaming you will ever experience, a quest which makes you beam with joy at almost every turn. It is a game that should be spoken of in the same regard as Capcom’s better known classics, and is easily one of the finest games in their considerable canon." (Okami HD, PS3) 10/10

You can tell that Okami was a labor of love. Other than it feeling just slightly too long, it is an absolutely beautiful example of what can be achieved without blood and violence. Like the reviewer said, a true homage to our beloved games of the past. If you have never had the chance to play this, I would highly recommend you stop what you're doing right now, and pick this one up.

Download only here in the US... don't know about other regions.
