5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTERPIECE!, 30 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Okami (PS2) (Video Game)
In my opinion, this game is one of capcom's greatest inventions. The graphics are stunning(a mix of Japanese watercolour-paints and computer generated effects). The characters each have their own story to tell and are all special in their own way. I would rate this game 10/10 if anyone asked, however, I find the most unique aspect is the atmosphere and the story.

Okami is based on Japanese mythology combined with beautiful illustrations. It is about a god in the form of a white-wolf named 'Amaterasu' and the wolf's journey to restore the once natural land to its original beauty. Amaterasu is accompanied by a tiny artist called 'Issun' who is sometimes very amusing in parts of the game. He is just like a little advisor and throws away many clues to help complete tough quests. Throughout the game you are presented with godly powers to aid you on your quest to defeat the evil that plagued the land. These powers are brush techniques(patterns that you draw on the screen) and help solve puzzles further on in your journey. Once you've mastered all thirteen brush techniques, you can make the sun appear, turn daytime into nightime, even create a bomb to finish off your enemies. There are many side-quests for you to complete and as a word of advice, complete one by one-that way they wont co-incide with each other.

The game is reasonably long and in itself, a puzzle to solve. I find the combat quite straight forward once you get to grips with the powers but the challenges can be very difficult at times. The storyline is richly told through pictures and sometimes it is fun to spend a whole session just on side-quests. There is lots to explore and lots to do so this game doesn't get boring once you think you've finished it!

Overall, this game is a treasure for any gamer and beats Onimusha, Ico and God of War as it is well thought out and does not really have an obvious weakness. Okami is a legend; a legend to be told...
