GotGame: Review | Okami HD

GotGame: Even though this is an update to the classic game, without ever knowing about the first version, you will be happy to know that this version holds up amazingly over time. Unlike other games that show their age in mechanics and style, the HD graphics, trophy support, and inclusion of PlayStation Move controls keep this version up to date with all of the current titles available on the market today. (Okami HD, PS3) 5/5

I need to buy this.

Im wondering if i would enjoy this!

Never played the original and these reviews are great! i am a fan of past Zelda games and i hear this is a similar type of game?

So its full 1080p?

Hows the frame rate, is it improved over the original or was that fine? i watched a review of the original and the chap mentioned frame dips so was wondering if this is still present

Just want to make sure ill like it before i buy as its on the higher end of psn downloads price wise

Thanks :)

The framerate is the same as the original game, but seeing as how it's been remastered in progressive scan (1080p) much of the blur that plagued the PS2 version is gone. I bought this day one on PS2 as well as day one for the remake. This HD version captures a bit of the magic that was missing from the PS2 version (that blurring again). It might be a mite expensive but I personally consider the game to be one of the truly few masterpieces of gaming out there, and I don't assign that title to very many things. Honestly, I can only think of a few personal favourites that I allot that title too. Check it out. :)

Thanks for your reply, i think i will give it a go then :) everyone seems to praise it, just hope it offers the same feeling now to me as it did for those who played the original

To be honest, as I said before, I consider this game to be a masterpiece. As such, it stands the test of time very well. It feels as good to play now in HD as it did in the late days of the PS2, just now in wonderful 1080p. I have yet to try the Move support, but it works wonderfully with the standard DualShock 3. Give it a shot. It's well worth the 20 dollars and one of the truly few things Capcom have done right this generation...
