One of the most beautiful, heart warming games I have luckily gotten the chance to play is coming to PSN, November 1st, 2012. Surprisingly, this game falls into the category of a cult classic due to poor sales. Why such low sales? Okami is rated 9 out of 10 on IGN. Could it be because the theme wasn’t surrounded by zombies or post apocalyptic survival? Perhaps, the style of the game was not mainstream enough with all of those regurgitated fps high ranked titles? Regardless the reasoning why this diamond in the rough hasn’t fully obtained the recognition I feel it deserves you can finally get a chance to experience Okami in HD. Mind you this is a Playstation exclusive! Be sure to have the PS Move since that is the only way to be able to control the celestial brush.
Can I just take a second and gush over how visually appealing this game is? The animated ink illustration, with watercolor and wood cut style environment. It really is nothing like any other game out on the market. So why isn’t Okami raising the bar for Capcoms competitors? With such a unique look, battle system, beautifully composed soundtrack and one of my favorite stories you would be absolutely crazy not to give this game a try.
