Her task is to restore color (or 'life') to the world by destroying the monsters who have stolen it. Since Amaterasu is a diety, there are naturally people who worship her and people who don't. The more people who worship her (as a result of her restoring color and doing other good deeds for them), the more powerful she becomes. Expand

    Okami Hd is the ultimate evolution of a classic. The Switch version makes no concessions, presenting everything that is expected from a port and going beyond to fit the (high) expectations of the platform. The end result is impeccable, but even if it wasn’t Amaterasu’s adventure would be recommended regardless.

    This Switch release is a highpoint, as it merges multiple different methods of control into one version, and can be played anywhere at any time. 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.

    An unequaled classic...A flawless and very playable port of one of the most enchanted fairytales of all times, in the unique suibokuga style.

    Like the other versions, the improvements in Okami HD for the Nintendo Switch are just audio and video related. But the touch and motion controls make this one the best versions of the original Clover game.

    Okami HD is an ode to folklore and Japanese legends. A tale crafted into a video game. An unforgettable adventure.

    I can’t say that Okami will make it into my all-time favorites, but it’s memorable nonetheless. Exploring Nippon and meeting all of its goofy, painted inhabitants makes up for the repetition of combat, but it’s a shame that it didn’t quit while it was ahead — the excessive length and repetitive combat only served to dampen the things it got right.

Highly recommended for lovers of Japanese culture and art. Expand

    o jogo é otimo, graficos incriveis, uma otima jogabilidade e horas de gameplay, eu por exemplo ainda não zerei o jogo, mas mesmo não tendoo jogo é otimo, graficos incriveis, uma otima jogabilidade e horas de gameplay, eu por exemplo ainda não zerei o jogo, mas mesmo não tendo zerado achei otimo, obvio tem lados ruins como o fato do jogo te obrigar a usar o sensor de movimento no pincel, eu por exemplo jogo no pro controler(não sou fã de sensor de movimento) com certas dificuldades, outro ponto negativo é que as batalhas ficam muito repetitivas, sem contar o sitema para entrar nelas, acho que se as batalhas fossem como no The legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild que voce encontra os inimigos no mapa e começa a batalha com eles tendo a opção de fugir delas as batalhas seriam melhores, outra coisa não gostei é o fato do ter dialogos de mais, um bom exemplo disso é quando voce vai uma tecnica nova que para fasela voce precisa apertar o botão Y 4 vezes e jogo tira quase 1 minuto para explicar isso serio o jogo não podia falar ''aperte Y quatro vezes para um ataque mais forte''basicamente uma pura perda de tempo, tirando isso o jogo tem inumeros pontos positivos, como seu grafico que ja citei, e claro suas mecanicas, outra coisa incrivel é a falta de bugs de colizão que são muito comuns em jogos, basicamente um jogo que bate de frente com Mario Odyssey e The legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild.

    I'd been wanting to play Okami for a long time, but despite all the times it had been ported to numerous different systems over the past fewI'd been wanting to play Okami for a long time, but despite all the times it had been ported to numerous different systems over the past few console generations, I'd just never gotten around to it at any point within the last 12 years, until it came to the Switch. And now, I can see why so many people love this game, and why it's endured for just over a decade, because it is an absolutely gorgeous looking game.

    I've noticed that most reviews for this game focus almost entirely on the artstyle, and there's a reason why, because it's beautiful. Other reviews also mention the music, which again, is gorgeous, and the humorous characters. But I am somewhat disappointed with the actual gameplay itself. The combat is a chore. It amounts to mashing Y and then using the paintbrush to draw a line through the enemy when they're down to defeat them. And the text portions of the game are egregiously drawn out (no pun intended). The dialogue stretches on for an eternity, as do gameplay explanations. There was one point where a character was explaining a new combat technique, and I timed how long it took to get through their explanation, and it literally took 52 seconds for them to explain "mash Y four times." I'm not joking. 52 full seconds of text, just to explain how to push the Y button four times. It was ridiculous. And the game over explains literally everything like this. The handholding is unbelievable. And then, there are frequent points in the game where you simply have no clue where you're supposed to go next or what you're supposed to do. So the game simultaneously holds your hand to never ending extents, while also frequently dropping you off into the middle of a field with no clue as to what you're supposed to be doing.

    While I did find those things incredibly frustrating, I still loved this game due to its gorgeous looking art style and its quirky, humorous characters. I just wish there wasn't so much wandering with no sense of the direction you're supposed to be headed in, and that the dialogue didn't drag on forever to explain incredibly simple things.

    A wonderfully fun adventure game that remains original to this day, a classic if I've ever seen one.

The game play is is mostly fun and there are plenty of colorful characters. The big problem is there is a LOT of text to skip through. It is a huge chore and really soured my experience.
    It's still worth playing and the switch is probably the best place for it. The touch screen was a life saver when the painting controls decided to be finicky. Just be prepare to press the A button an awful lot.
