Product Description

Platform: Nintendo Wii

Okami tells the story of a mythical sun god who sets out to restore a dismal world, decimating the forces of evil who stand in the way by commanding the elements and mythical abilities the deity possesses. Mixing Japanese folklore and a stunning traditional Japanese art style, players must utilize an inventive control scheme to overcome the challenges and evil that await. By enhancing the unique gameplay, visual style and story line of Okami with the control of the Wii Remote, it is sure to be the ultimate version of the game.

Originally designed for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and released in 2006, Okami now comes alive in an entirely new way on the Wii with its visually stunning art style and beautiful scenic 3D levels that have the appearance and texture of paper scrolls brushed with watercolor-like calligraphy art. Throughout the vibrant and distinctive surroundings, players must use the Wii remote to interact with a dynamic world and cast of characters. The blend of stylized graphics, movements and unique gameplay will result in a rich and dynamic experience never seen before.

Features:

  • Innovative gameplay and control scheme optimized for the Wii - Defeating monsters requires both motion-controlled physical attacks, but also use of the Wii Remote as Amaterasu's 'Celestial Brush' to paint the desired powers for decimating enemies and solving puzzles.
  • Utilize various gameplay styles - In addition to the Celestial Brush, Amaterasu can wield three types of offensive weaponry, each with their own unique abilities and effects. Depending on how a weapon is equipped, it can be used as the main or sub weapon:
    • Reflectors - These well-balanced weapons are suited for close range combat.
    • Rosaries- Sacred magatama beads are great for quick long range attacks.
    • Glaives - These can be charged up to unleash powerful close range attacks.
  • Intriguing main character - Assume the role of the sun god, Amaterasu, who descends upon the earth in the form of a wolf. The Japanese translation of the word wolf is "Okami".
  • Original visuals and revolutionary design- Vibrant and inspiring graphics, reminiscent of traditional Japanese art created on paper scrolls, produce a large variety of stages with a watercolor-esque appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Goes to the Wii April 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pros:

+Reissue of one of the best Playstation 2 games.
+A good storyline
+A beautiful and stylish game
+Incredible soundtrack
+Wii Controls work well

Cons:

-There aren't any Wii Exclusive Extras
-No voice acting, though this isn't a big issue
-If you own this game on the Playstation 2, the new controls probably don't justify buying the game

In 2006, Capcom released Okami. It's a game that didn't have a long lifespan, despite being on the PS2. It has commonly gone on to be labeled one of the most underrated (and probably underplayed) games of all time. However, it quickly garnered a cult following. For anyone who missed the Playstation 2 version, here's a chance to play it on the Wii. Even if you played the Playstation 2 version to death, Okami on the Wii is worth giving a try.

You play as Amaterasu. She's the Sun God of Japan and must now save the it from being overtaken by an evil curse that has spread across the land. Amaterasu is joined by her companion Issun. The overall story of Okami is brilliant. It's told through text dialog with no voice acting to speak of. While there's some garbled gibberish going on when the words appear on screen, there's no voice acting whatsoever. This is forgivable, though. What may throw some people however, is that some of the games cutscenes are pretty long, and they're pretty text heavy.

When it comes to graphics there are some games that put style over substance and some that put substance over style. Okami manages to do both. Not only is the game one of the most beautiful looking games ever released on a video game platform, it's also incredibly stylish, colorful, and detailed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful April 17, 2008
By Fryfat
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Too often we read about "good graphics" in techincal jargon; 1080p, 60FPS, or 9,000,000 polys. If any game proves that visual beauty can't be quantified in numbers, and should instead be described with color, line, and form, it's Okami.

The reason is simple. Okami is the most beautiful game that's ever been made, an opinion shared with major magazines when it was heralded as Game of the Year in 2006 (it was competing with Zelda: Twilight Princess and Gears of War for the title, and won). Now in 2008 and released for the Wii, still no game has surpassed the artwork in Okami. After you rescue the first sapling, you'll understand why.

The gameplay is more original than magazine reviews would lead you to believe. They all agreed it's great, but said it's similar to Zelda, though I found it to be much more original, adult, and the gameplay to require more skill and depth. Pulling off a 4-strike combo, for example, takes the timing of a Guitar Hero veteran.

Okami was originally a PS2 title, but don't let that turn you off. It belongs on Wii. This had to have been made for the Wii, there's no other explanation. The brushstrokes, which are used for nearly every fight and obstacle, come so naturally to the wiimote, that it's impossible to remember how it was ever done with a gamepad.

What's sad is that Okami bombed on PS2. It had great reviews and a Game of the Year title, a strong fanbase, but for some strange reason nobody bought it, and the development studio went bankrupt.

I hope Wii owners prove to be different. This is hands down the better version of an already great game, and deserves to finally be played.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still spectacular, a must own April 20, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Back in 2006, Capcom and now defunct developer Clover quietly released a game for the PS2 that ended up being one of the most original, inventive, and addicting masterpieces that ever graced the system. That game was Okami, and now it is here on the Wii, and it is certainly a match made in heaven. For those unfamiliar with Okami, you play as the goddess Amaterasu, who has been reincarnated in the body of a mystical white wolf. Armed with a celestial paint brush that is used to progress through the game and take out enemies, Okami never ceases to amaze even to this day. Though the story and quest elements borrow heavily from Legend of Zelda, Okami features an engaging narrative and interesting and charming characters to come across. The game is still a gorgeous sight to behold, and the quest itself is quite lengthy with plenty of side quests and collectibles to be found as well. On the Wii, Okami makes solid use of the motion controls when using the paint brush, and it works pretty well. If there are any downsides to Okami, it is the same single flaw that the game featured when it was originally released: the combat may be found to be too easy for some. That aside, Okami is still a masterpiece of modern gaming, and now that it has hit the Wii, a whole new audience of gamers can discover just how wonderful this game really is. If you missed out before and you own a Wii, don't miss out on Okami again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic revisited April 19, 2008
By Cloud
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It frequently happens when a game or a movie comes out that everyone seems to love yet nobody even bothers to go see it. Sometimes they have the good sense to know when something is awful so they avoid but then on other occasions they don't support it enough even though the general attitude is how incredible it was. When Okami was coming out for the PS2, it became one of those anticipated titles thanks to its unique and utterly beautiful visual style but despite the acclaim and awards, it wasn't a success and the studio, Clover Studios, had to close down. But fans kept speculating that the unique gameplay involving the brush could work well on the Wii or DS and pretty soon a Wii-port was announced. With some enhances features, the game is just as good on any system.

Story: The people of Kamiki Village used to live in fear of the 8-headed demon Orochi, who demanded a sacrifice from one of the village maidens during their festival. But the swordsman Nagi, who secretly loved the maiden chosen, had enough and decided to fight him off but couldn't damage him in anyway until Shiranui, a mystical white wolf, appeared and together, they banished Orochi away but Shiranui succumbed to his injuries. 100 years later, Orochi seems to be resurrected so the wolf, reincarnated as Amaterasu, is brought forth to restore beauty and peace to the land.

Graphics: A lot of times sayings like "work of art" when it comes down to graphics is usually because of how shiny and sharp it is but when you say Okami is like a painting come to life, it's literally the case. Done in Japanese watercolor style, the game is filled with beautiful moments and rarely does the game ever get boring to look at.
