On the whole, though, Okami is a delight from start to finish. It gives you the freedom to savour and indulge in every last drop of its ink-washed world, and its combat and story are both superb – particularly if you have even the slightest bit of interest in Japanese mythology.

Ōkami HD serves as proof that even among today's trends, progression in an open-world game such as this one can be meaningful. The newly improved 4K resolution is just an added bonus that further demonstrates the game's visual style will never get old, regardless of its obviously dated textures. In my opinion, it's a near-perfect game, and one you should definitely experience if you haven't already. It's also one well worth revisiting, even if it'll be your fifth time. The latest release of Ōkami HD might not provide much more for people who've played the remaster already, but when it's priced so cheaply, it's not much of an asking price.

Ōkami is one of the highest expressions of a video game as art, further blurring the lines between the two. It's not just a delightful game, it's also a historically important one, and everyone owes it to themselves to experience Ōkami, either again or for the first time.

Okami isn’t just a game, it’s a visual masterpiece of art and design and a testament to creativity that needs to be experienced as words alone don’t do it justice. This is the definitive edition of the game, and a game that you absolutely should not miss out on.

Minor tweaks and a resolution upgrade wouldn't be enough for a re-release to be recommended, especially if – as in this case – it was the third such re-release. But Okami manages to sidestep that sort of criticism for two very good reasons. One, it's a superb game full of wit and imagination; and two, not that many folk have played it.

Ōkami is to video games what something like Spirited Away is to film; it's not only beautiful and powerful, but it speaks to the very core of the Japanese soul, and because of that it's hugely educational to anyone that has an interest in the country and its culture.

Having the chance to once again return to Nippon, I can wholeheartedly say that (after eleven years) Okami HD is still a masterpiece, standing the test of time through two generational console jumps. Put frankly, it is a work of art and a prime example of the ingenuity, creativity, and brilliance key development teams brought to their work on the PlayStation 2. Here's hoping that Okami HD receives the sequel it rightfully deserves.

I’m gonna be honest with you. I did go a little ham on this review and I don’t really remember if I have to mention anything else, but I am pretty sure I covered the main aspects that I had to so take my word for it and go buy the game … it’s a great game, I have nothing to complain about. It’s engaging, immersive, dynamic, unique – not only in mechanics but the sumi-e art style as well, has over 120 pieces of music, that you never get bored of, a lot of character development and world-building … I am obviously gonna give Okami a 10/10, no regrets, go buy the game.

The story is interesting, even though it can be a little long winded at times and the gaming environment is a pure joy to explore, especially when matched with the mechanics and controls of this title.

If you haven't already gathered, Okami HD is an utterly fantastic piece of software, and we feel you'd be doing yourself a disservice to pass on it. For a mere twenty bucks, you can have access to a 40-hour adventure that emulates Zelda wonderfully, adds in plenty of memorable mechanics, features one of the most memorable art styles in gaming, and is completely playable on the go, to boot. Though it may be showing its age a bit visually and its combat is sometimes a little on the easy side, Okami is an important, fun, and notable landmark in gaming history — and one of the easiest recommendations we can make for your Switch library.

Okami HD was great on the PS3, but is even better on the PS4. This may finally be the definitive version of the game. Motion controls have been dropped, but then again they didn't really feel like they belonged in the first place. Sure, this is essentially the same game for a third packaging, but if you missed the remaster, and especially if you never played the original game, Okami HD cannot come any more highly recommended.

Age has treated Okami HD well. Even if it didn't come with the resolution boost, it would still be beautiful thanks to the art style alone, and the fact that the game is now on various platforms simultaneously helps greatly. Even with the game's slow moments, the overall gameplay length feels worthwhile, and the mechanics make everything feel tight. As it stands now, Okami HD is really the definitive version of a classic and well worth checking out, especially if you've never played the previous iterations. Let's hope this finally gives Capcom a reason to bring a sequel and not another re-re-re-release in the future.

Okami HD is what you would call a unique game. Traditional Japanese culture influences the art-style, the story and just about every inch of the game’s world, Nippon. Nippon itself is a peaceful place to start with, but that peace is suddenly shattered by the forces of evil. It’s up to god of the sun, Amaterasu (in the form of a white wolf), to get things back on track.

Marking its first outing on a handheld device, Okami HD retains all of the elegance and charisma from even its non-HD days, packing it all into an epic adventure with a budget price and intuitive control inputs.

Okami, now on its seventh platform, remains unaffected by the ravages of time.

Okami HD is a wonderful, exciting adventure that's beautifully presented. Although the paintbrush mechanic can still be frustrating, the Nintendo Switch offers its best implementation of any platform. The game's linear progression, on the other hand, very much shows its age; those who have enjoyed Breath of the Wild and Skyrim on the Switch may not welcome the return to hand-held adventuring. But if you allow yourself to get drawn into this colorful world and its story of a goddess wolf and her tiny, smart-aleck friend (seriously, don't call him a bug), you'll find that Okami HD is well worth the 40-hour investment even if you've invested it before.

Okami is a relaxing game. The lack of challenge isn’t ideal but it lets you focus on what is beautiful about the world and the characters while enjoying the high-fantasy Japanese story. I loved drawing images to fight and change the world around me and was constantly learning new techniques. Okami could have done with some editing to trim the length and a steeper difficulty curve to keep you interested throughout. However, even with its issues, Okami is an absolute joy to play and a steal for $20.

Still one of the most beautiful video games ever created, not to mention the best Zelda game that never was.

Okami HD re-enacts on PS4 and Xbox One one of the most courageous and inspired game of the PS2 generation. An adventure that fuses Shinto mythology and and Japanese folklore into a "Zelda" structure, to develop a great painted legend. If the brush-based gameplay has aged very well, others minigames and some camera angles make evident it's a PS2 game. If you never play Okami on previous consoles, you should buy it at once; if you already possess it, it will attract you only if you're a collector.

All said and done, Okami HD is a competent remaster of a beloved classic. Hopefully we'll see Capcom revisit some of its other PS2 and GameCube era output like Viewtiful Joe and Godhand. Till then, Okami HD is well worth checking out.

Okami HD is the same bold and courageous affair that had critics engaging in a syllabic arms race to fawn over. But be aware of the camera issues and that while the combat and brush system is novel, it is limited and repetitive.

I really wanted to like Okami HD more than I did. It features beautiful graphics and solid gameplay mechanics, but the massive amounts of text and slow pacing really put me off. There is a lot to like here and some are sure to like this game more than I did.

Okami HD might still have some of its original niggling annoyances, but in a way, it wears these on its sleeve.

Okami makes yet another return to modern platforms, now supporting up to 4K resolution, but does little else to justify another purchase for long-time fans

There's a lot of content in Okami HD. Unfortunately, interacting with the wealth of characters, locations, and collectibles becomes more of a chore when the story and action is so repetitive. Despite the different coat of paint, each new encounter felt like the last. The colors began to fade around the halfway point, and the game just kept painting without adding anything new to the page.
