description

In Okami, the legendary monster Orochi has come back to life and turned the world into a wasteland. To restore the earth’s natural order and beauty, players assume the role of wolf-embodied sun god Amaterasu and participate in numerous action packed battles against the ominous beings they encounter. However, conquering these impending enemies is no small feat. Amaterasu will travel through different regions of the world to regain her "Celestial Brush" powers, all the while revitalizing everything in her path. Using an innovative control scheme, gamers can slash away at enemies, use various brush strokes to solve puzzles, create pathways, chop down trees or turn night into day. The real-time fighting system not only involves assorted brush techniques, but also myriad of specials attacks typically not associated with the physical prowess of a normal wolf.

Featuring a visually stunning art style, Okami comes alive through beautiful scenic 3D levelsthat have the appearance and texture of paper scrolls brushed with watercolor-like calligraphy art. Throughout the vibrant and distinctive surroundings, players must also interact with a dynamic cast of characters, building their faith to uncover clues andhints. The blend of stylized graphics and unique gameplay will result in a rich and dynamic experience never seen before.

Okami
Okami which is perfect, proves that the PlayStation 2 (PS2) is still capable of pulling out some big guns before it makes way for its younger brother, the PlayStation 3, later this year. In this long-awaited English translation of the Japanese game, you are Amaterasu, the Sun god reborn as a wolf. Evil has robbed the world of life and colour, and you are to end it by defeating enemies and by painting. Along the way, as Amaterasu, you will also solve many of the woes of Japan\'s people, such as stopping a plague, defeating a sea monster, and more.

Okami\'s primary innovation comes from its use of painting to solve puzzles as well as to attack. By holding the right shoulder button, players can draw different symbols that effect the world. Early on, for instance, Amaterasu comes across a hige boulder which she will learn to slice with a quick decisive slash. As she progresses in the game, she will unlock more and more abilities which can be used in line with others. Drawing is a snap, and has much strategic value. Using the pressure-sensitive buttons on the PS2, players can draw either thick or thin lines that will affect Amaterasu\'e abilities. A thin swirl, for instance, creates a soft wind that blows a lily-pad across the water, while a thick one creates a hurricane that could flip the pad.

Importantly, the story is compelling. The main story alone lasts around 25 hours, and nearly doubles when you include all the sub- and side-quests available. The translators have gone to great lengths to allow English-speaking users to not only enjoy the game but also keep them motivated. Characters are able to convey emotions well, and are memorable, not merely window dressing. Most surprisingly is how the developers have made Amaterasu, who does not speak, convey precise emotions: head tilts and minor growls speak volumes.

The game\'s Japanese-style water-colour is perfect for the game, creating an artistic form for that looks stunning. The game looks especially beautiful when \"paused\" while players are drawing. Whether wandering around the world or fighting, players can also hear traditional Japanese musical instruments fused with modern ones, creating one of the most moving and gentle musical pieces ever heard. Players can also see Amaterasu grow as the game progresses. There is a wealth of items, skills, statistics and weapons to gain, all of which add a tangible feel of strength to the smoothly rendered Sun god.

Some of these references will be lost, though, on players who do not have an extensive knowledge of Japanese culture and history. But this is a minor point and does not detract from the game, and it is possibly one of the few negative things I could find with the title. While Okami first appeared in Japan almost two years ago, its enduring style and story ensure that it is now one of the outstanding English PS2 titles of 2006. Pick it up and be transported.

Kneel before your god...
Okami is a gift from the heavens. With a great storyline, incredible visuals and fantastic sound, you\'ll spend a LOT of time with this game! There\'s loads of free roaming and (challenging)sidequests, so basically you can do as you please during the game.

And i will bet you my lifesavings that you will laugh as you read the dialogues with \"Issun, the wandering artist\". You see, he\'s a womanizer and he\'s not afraid of showing it and speaking his mind... hahaha

To cut short: a \"must-have / windwaker-killer\" in my opinion...
