Has Okami held up over the years?

Has the classic videogame, Okami, held up in quality over the past several years? (okami, Okami HD, PS3, Wii)

Hell yes!

It's still a joy to play today, a masterpiece of a game from Clover (I refuse to forgive Capcom for closing them :_( )

I mean it as a bit of fresh air in a stale part of gaming.

Absolutely.

I wish they'd put it on PS4, XBO and Wii U just to give it more exposure, especially during some of the slow release times, like right now.

A Wii U version could actually make good use of the touch screen. Okami U needs to become a thing.

Maybe even include a HD version of Okamiden on the same disc.

1080p, smooth framerate, rice paper filter, and options for standard/touch/motion control = take my money

You're absolutely right.

As great as Okami HD would be on PS4 and XBO, the Wii U Game Pad could take it to new heights.

As an owner of all three, should the game release on those platforms, I would likely opt for the Wii U version.

The game was long, i expected 10 hours but got over 20 from it. Plus i rushed the second half, avoiding side missions, items, and new skills.

I was told it plays like Zelda.

The game's art style is timeless!
It still performs well and I remember dashing through fields and the framerate stayed constant.
I'd sometimes just stop and stare at the scenery, it definitely feeds the argument that games can be art!

Epic
I bought the hd version when released on ps3 and enjoyed every second.

I want it compatible with PS4! One of my favorite games from PS2 era!
Paprika  +   232d ago
Artistically it destroys 95% of games made today. It may have aged as all things do, but its still gorgeous!

On a side note, conkers bad fur day... even older still on a weaker system still looks amazing today, what a game that was. People compare graphics between consoles today, but the n64 really destroyed the competition in its 3d games in that era.

Artistically, Dragon's Crown is better (Assuming you mean graphically. Actually, anything made by VanillaWare bests Okami graphically.
Paprika  +   231d ago
Artistically isn't really judged by its graphics, not outright anyway. Journey for example is artistically better looking than beyond two souls on ps3, but graphically way inferior.

From what I've seen of DC, Okami has more character and unique design than dragons crown, however DC still looks nice :)

Yes. And it always will.

One epic game!
LightDiego  +   232d ago
Wonderful game, one of the best games ever for me. Beautiful graphics, great narrative, soundtrack, characters, innovative gameplay, if you never played do it now!
i actually disagree. it has great visuals, narrative, soundtrack, and basically everything light diego said. But it holds you hand way too much, to the point that it isn't enjoyable for me.
Paprika  +   232d ago
Also, right from the opening title screen when that epic voice shouts "Okami" you know this game will ooze with character and charm!

I dont usually comment here on N4G but signed in just to say YES, Okami holds up amazingly well today. Still for me in the top 10 games of all time...innovative, bold, beautiful and epic.
GamingSinceThe80s  +   231d ago
I have seen you comment many a time higgins78.Don't you lie now!lol
higgins78  +   231d ago
Fair do's, lol. Still, when I saw "Okami" mentioned I was more compelled to comment than normal... better?

Class game and I'm afraid becoming more and more unlikely the likes of which we will ever see again. Mass Effect 15 anybody?
DarkOcelet  +   231d ago
Its a classic to me like resident evil trilogy so it will never age to me and its art style was awesome so the answer is yes
Revengeance  +   231d ago
Absolutely. This game can hold up in ANY generation.
