About

Okami HD is a remaster of the original Ōkami released for PS2 and Wii in 2006. While the original game has only visited PS2 and Wii, the HD Remaster is playable on all the current generation consoles.

Remastered

While the original game has only visited PS2 and Wii, the HD Remaster is playable on all the current generation consoles. The updated version differs from the original in texture quality, HD does not feature some songs and include trophies.

Key features

The whole narrative in the game circles around Japanese stylistics: folklore tales, agitated myths, and well-known country legends mix up in the game's storytelling. The title also features unique stylistics inspired by Japanese ink-wash painting called Sumi-e. All of the game's visuals are rendered via cel-shading.

Plot

The game tells a story of Ōkami Amaterasu — the wolf representing the Japanese goddess of the sun. At the beginning of the game, she is going out for an adventure to seal the Orochi — demon who was unleashed by Susano, the great warrior.

Gameplay

The game presents itself as a mix of puzzle and platformer. Throughout the game, the player follows the main story. However, the side quest is also available. Apart from the exploring sections, the protagonist also participates in multiple battles. The main weapon-style used in battles is brushing, which is used for the wide variety of the actions including wielding the weapon.

Possibly my all time favourite game, definitely my favourite Zelda-like (including the actual Zelda series). I've played this through to 100% completion with every rerelease it's come out with and that probably works out to 150 hours that I've enjoyed every second of. This is without a doubt the most beautiful game to exist: the character designs, artstyle, music, and environments that are each more gorgeous than the last make it a joy to look at and being made by the predecessor to Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Metal Gear Revengeance, Wonderful 101) you better believe it plays like a dream too. The scenarios and locations you visit are imaginative in a way that means you'd never predict some of the places you end up and even by the highly important (to me) metric of how good the fishing minigame is it's still way up there. The only negative is the re-use of boss fights. They're all excellent the first time round but - thanks to a boss rush at the end of the game - some you face three times with only minor changes. The best way to play is still an emulated version of the PS2 original as all later releases are missing the climactic ending song, but, really, just go grab whichever version you'd like, this is a perfectly fine port other than that one tiny niggle (although it is disappointing that the Switch version chooses not to use the Celestial Brush pointer controls that could've made it THE definitive version).

I love the art style! And that’s pretty much it. I have tried Okami multiple times, but I may give up finally. It is often compared to Zelda, so this brings me back and makes me try it again and againg. But believe me, there’s not much in common. The controls are awkward, the dialogues are annoying, the graphics is beautiful but it’s hard to understand what’s going on, finally, the tasks are dull and unclear. Go play a Zelda.
It’s like a Zelda game, but you are a dog! What else do you need? No, seriously, the game deserves your attention. It has amazing art, marvellous soundtrack and cool characters. The story drags a bit in the third part, but I still enjoyed it. My advice is *do not* rush the game. It’s relatively long, over 30 hours in my experience, so it is easy to get a bit bored if you rush it.
