There are six fully realized characters, with unique personalities, strengths, powers, and attacks, and 100 enemies to battle.

There are flaws, which I believe have been mentioned. Yes, there are some long load times. Yes, occasionally the game seems to go on boring stretches. And yes, going into the dungeons and fighting the "evil kings" is repetitive. But if you stick with the game, everything changes, and you can forgive the flaws easily.
One of the themes they play on at the very beginning of the game is the old "Don't judge a book by it's cover" adage. This holds true for the game itself - I'm just now beginning to unravel the actual, real plot of the game, and I'm almost ten hours into it - a great mistake by the game makers, but it is an incredible story.
The game really isn't for everybody; the humor bears greay resemblance to that of "Earthbound" or the Monkey Island series, and the long conversations can only be enjoyed by honest RPG fans. However, if you are looking for a compelling game (And you don't mind spending some time dragging yourself through some rather tedious missions), then you can't go wrong with "Okage."
And if you're still not sure, rent it and play it for a good ten-fifteen hours before you make a decision - that's where the MAJOR plot twist comes in (I don't want to spoil it for anybody who doesn't know).

Okage: Shadow King is a terrific game in that it breaks the usual "boy saves the world + girl from evil" formula we've been seeing for the past few years in console RPG's. It also boasts some of the most impressive visual styling (paying more than a little homage to Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas) and funniest dialog in any RPG within memory. Still, there are a few problems.
The story is that you are an average boy who gets trapped into becoming the host of an evil being from the past in order to save your spoiled sister from the dreaded "Pig Latin Curse." Anyways, this evil being, who is named Stan, takes possession of your shadow and orders you out into the world with dreams of conquest. This may not seem like the setup for a comedic RPG, but Okage is very lighthearted and has more than it's share of funny moments. You meet some very colorful characters along the way and the way they react to Stan leads to some very interesting situations.
The problem with Okage lies with its battle system. It is very simple and battles themselves are not all that entertaining. It makes me wonder why the developer chose to make an RPG out of this game instead of an action/adventure. A dungeon crawler like Dark Cloud or Zelda seems more appropriate. Also, the load times are unacceptable given the graphical complexity of this game. Despite being very visually inventive, the polygon counts are low so there is no excuse for 10 second load times. This is especially noticeable in towns when you have to explore houses and even going from one room to another incurs a massive wait for loading!
If you're looking for something different Okage will provide you with a fun experience, but expect a little tedium to accompany it.

This game may not be for everyone, but is worth renting to find out if it is for you. Okage adds a new humorous twist to the rpg genre. The characters are very well developed. The battle system adds some unique features, like being able to combine all three characters attack's into one for extra damage. The story line is very strange but will keep you hooked and entertained. I have owned the game for one week and already on the last chapter. Do not think the game is short though (I beat final fantasy 8 in about the same amount of time). I hope you will give this game a try. This is the only rpg for the PS2 that I've been satisfied about buying, and I own almost all rpg's for the PS2. I own 42 PS2 games altogether and am most satisfied with this one...

A humerous, little-known RPG that parodies conventional RPGs.

Plot

You are an ignored teenager, whose sister falls under a Pig Latin curse...and this dire circumstance forces you into the spotlight. Your Father calls upon the spirit of a bottle to cure his Daughter...unbeknowst to any of you, he has summoned forth Evil King Stanley Hihat Trinidad XIV, who reigned as the tyrant, Evil King Gohma, 300 years ago. In exchange for curing your younger sister, Evil King Stan possesses you, and orders you to help him restore his reign over the land. Thus, you must travel o'er the land, disposing of typical villain archetypes who have come to power during the course of Stan's absence. In the course of your journey, you meet heroes, scholars, princesses, and other RPG character archetypes, composing the stereotypical rag-tag band of outlaws. After all, you'll need all the help you can get...those evil kings aren't going to go down without a fight...

Graphics

The visual style is meant to be a tribute to that of Tim Burton, the guy who made A Nightmare before Christmas. Henceforth, everything looks Goth and Halloween-esque. The atmosphere can be described as "Halloween in every season but Autumn." So the atmosphere is BOTH cheery AND dark.

Sound

The music is silly, but fitting for the backgrounds. In some cases, it is even good for listening pleasure outside the context of the game. They try to make the music sound Irish in places, with bagpipes and flutes. The sound effects are what you would expect to hear in an RPG, with some other humerous sound effects like the kazoo and such. Some of the fanfare themes sound like they were taken from the Super Mario Bros., and the Evil King Marching theme sounds reminiscent of Bowser's theme.
