PS Plus: Is Okami HD Worth Downloading?

Okami HD is free on PS Plus Europe from today. But should you download Clover Studios’ upscaled action-adventure RPG? NowGamer has picked through its archives to tell you all you need to know about Okami HD. (PS3, Sony)

"is Okami HD Worth Downloading?"

what the hell is that kind of silly question?

do you want to be bitchslapped SON?
Snookies12  +   466d ago
Yeah, I'm confused... Why the hell would a free game NOT be worth downloading. Not to mention one that is so highly praised...

I always find myself being jealous of EU's PS+ offerings though lol. Every month you guys get such great stuff.

Okami HD is worth buying for $19.99 (price on PSN). It, like the Team Ico Collection is better than 90% of the current generations games.
KwietStorm  +   466d ago
90% is a pretty high number. You must reeeeeally not like this generation.
MariaHelFutura  +   466d ago
This gen was a few complete gems and alot of trash. Imo.
grailly  +   466d ago
or the team ico collection is reeeeeally good.

Site title says it all.

He's a "NowGamer"

Meaning there is a chance this site has no credibility in terms of knowing anything about video games.

this game is great. I had it on PS2.
insomnium2  +   466d ago
I still have it for my PS2 and I just DLd it for my PS3. The game is pure gold. Great comedy, great gameplay and a somewhat unique story or the presentation or whatever. It's great to say the least!
mrkeith  +   466d ago
yeah the game is definately different thats what i liked about it
BrianC6234  +   466d ago
It's worth paying for so of course it's worth downloading for free. That was a silly question. I hope nobody in Europe needed this advice to decide if they should download it.

50+ agrees to 0 disagrees!

Bitchslap time.

Maybe if they properly ported Okami HD to PS Vita so the screen could become the paintbrush with your fingers :D BRILLIANT!
Nitrowolf2  +   466d ago
eh even the games I'm not interested in or already Own I download or at least purchase with PS+ so that t's in my download history. It's always worth doing that at least, but this game is f'n awesome.
Dark_Legend  +   466d ago
Its one of the best ps2 games and it looks great in HD. If you like japanese culture and action adventures it is worth downloading
Viper7  +   466d ago
Seriously I love this months PS+ update.

It's shows the services potential to force feed great games that didn't get the attention they deserve to gamers who only buy shooters, sequels and other popular titles.

It could potentially help gamers find new games, genres they might not even considered before.

Both Okami and Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward are great titles which everyone should at least try.
SAE  +   466d ago
I prefer trying ico. I'm not interested to try okami. I just don't see why you guys like it. But ICO in the other hand is something i would pay for it because it looks good in my eyes. I just don't have money and i wish if it come for ps+ instead of this..

Lately ps+ only bring psp and ps2 games. At least give us something interesting -.- . Well , That's just my opinion though

Have you ever played Okami? If not you should try it if you can at least get it free. Since this deal is for Europe maybe you can't do that but if you can download it free at least try Okami.
Sketchy_Galore  +   466d ago
Hmmm, a game once chosen as IGN's game of the year, available to download for no extra cost. I dunno man, that's a tough one.
ALaish  +   466d ago
This game is pure art in every sense of that word. It's creation is one of the greatest moments in history of game design. I remember giving it review score "19 out of 20" when it first came out on PlayStation 2. Hoping for nothing special, it striked me like a bolt from clear sky. Every player that consider himself passionate and open for new types of games with great mechanics, gameplay and visuals that melt into one flawless experience, must play this masterpiece.
clintagious650  +   466d ago
Are they seriously asking is this game worth the dl? 1st off its free if your a ps plus member but its still worth buying aswell if u aint a ps plus member. Its a classic.
patriotZero  +   466d ago
Silly question
KwietStorm  +   466d ago
What kind of silliness.. One of the most unique games of yesteryear in HD for free. Worst case scenario you should start the download and cancel just so it's technically in your library. I wish this was in the US.
SAE  +   466d ago
you don't need to download and cancel . when you press purchase it immediately go to your download list..
aiBreeze  +   466d ago
Holy sheeeet!! I forgot about Okami Hd, was a game I always wanted to play back when it was originally released on ps2, going to go download it now!
valormeer  +   466d ago
Is it worth Downloading. Yes It's free...Hurp Durp?
kza  +   466d ago
DAM i just bought this by mistake. In a rush to check the store I somehow FAILED to see the big plus sign had disappeared next to my name so my PSN subscription has run out. Fucking blone moment or what lol!!
smashcrashbash  +   466d ago
Okami deserves better then it was given.It should have been put on a pedestal and instead was put in the bargain bin.
George Sears  +   466d ago
It is worth downloading even if it wasn't. I bought this one few months ago and I loved every minute of it. Full beautiful HD nostalgia.

ColinZeal  +   466d ago
Either way will work.
MasterCornholio  +   466d ago

waltyftm  +   466d ago
