Interesting video by a friend of mine. I played Okami recently and was surprised at how little the majority of people knew about it.
It is my favourite game of the PS2 era. I was happy to play it again in HD. If it appears on the PS4 I would play it again.
They should've made it for the Vita aswell, the touch screen for the "drawing parts" is perfect.
it was one of my favorites on PS2
one of the best games i played, bought wii version not long time ago, so i could play it on Wii U...again :)
I have a problem with the story. It had too many villains. Too many 'endings' only for you to move onto another villain which shoulda been weaker than the first one(orochi). I'm very big on Japanese Mythology due to Naruto so I loved all most of the stuff in it, however em...yeah the game was poorly paced. Ypu basically kill the main villain too early and the rest of it is cleaning up after him. Also repeating bosses is just a bad idea. Either should been shorter, or...the story shoulda moved around a bit, with Amaterasu fighting Orochi last and fighting some of the others earlier, nine tails, leviathan etc etc. Also the platforming wasn't that good. Since the game was similar to Zelda, the platforming and puzzles were just poor compared to Zelda. Either way, 8.5/10 game. For art style, combat, mythos(imo, Shinto is simply very interesting, one of my fav mythologies/religions) and yes story, even though again the games pacing was odd.
Orochi was not the main villain in the end. Yami was the source of all the evil. Orochi had just been revived and was still in a weakened state. The evil was still there even after Orochi's original defeat but the evil was sealed away not let loose the second time. The other villains continued to gain strength in the meantime. Orochi is the most fun boss I ever placed. Getting him drunk to defeat his is something you never see in other games.
my favorite t0. It was long It had amazing Graphics IT was Fun It was unique 10/10 Game easily!!!!!!!!!
Clover Studios was great already with the Viewtiful Joe series, but Okami was just incredible. Considering you could find the game on both Wii and PSN this gen, I'm very surprised that a lot of people still haven't experienced it.
viewtiful game is still one of my favourite games along with god hand, even now Platinum Games are kickin ass again this game, but i still would love god hand 2 and viewtiful 3
Best Zelda clone ever, and in my top 10 games of all time proper tear jerker...poor Tobi...sniff IN fact I think id have it above all Zelda games because its was such an emotional game
Honestly, game of the PS2 generation, hands down.
best effin game I played with PS Plus hands down,the unique artstyle and Japanese culture is mind blowing.Definately the best HD re-release I've ever seen of any game
I just bought this on sale for $6.00 and i gotta say: the game is so f**king gorgeous it should be a crime.
Very underrated indeed, perhaps due to its release date during PS3's not so favorable time period.
have it on Wii and played it early today
some other less known games: STALKER No One Lives Forever XIII Chronicles of Riddick: Butcher Bay Puppeteer Zeno Clash Anachronox
I think Anachronox is one of the least known RPGs for PC ever created. It was so great to.
I had XIII on GC my favorite mode was The Hunt!!! So much fun!
I would add Resistance 3 to the list as well. Such an under-appreciated game
Even to this point, Okami still is and will always be my favorite game of ALL TIME. There is something very tranquil and soothing about this masterpiece, that only a few other games had the pleasure of partially achieving. I raise my controller, in hopes that one day there will be Okami II.
Good old PS2 days, I will never forget! I remember the last years of the PS2 where one good game came after the other: God of War 1 & 2; Monster Hunter; Okami; Shadow of the Colossus ... that was too much epicness for my youthly brain, I was around 16/17 ... maybe 18 ... Can't wait for the PS4!
This game is great. It doesn't hold your hand so much, the graphics are unique, and there's a lot of content. The combat is too easy though, Zelda has that same problem.
