5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air. September 20, 2006
By J Bess
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Today's video game market is a stagnant one for the most part. Publishers rely on franchises and proven formulas to make their money. Meanwhile when something creative and original comes along publishers don't want to take a chance on it in fear of lousy returns on their investment. While this does make for a great business decision, it makes for poor gaming experiences. Thankfully Okami made it to fruition.

This game is reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda. The cell shaded graphics harken back to The Wind Waker, and inevitably any third person adventure game is going to merit a Zelda comparison. However, this is definitely not a Zelda clone. It merely takes the genre and builds on it to produce something extraordinary.

The gameplay is relatively simple. You can run around, fight baddies, talk to villagers, etc. The real innovation here is the use of a "paintbrush" that you activate with R1 to alter your environment. If you run up on a bridge that's broken down? No problem, activate your paintbrush and paint another one onto the landscape. Bad guy getting you down? Simple, just activate the paintbrush, draw a slash through the enemy, and he's down for the count. I've only progressed through the first hour of the game, so I have not collected all of the paintbrush techniques. But there is no doubt that the paintbrush is a big part of the game.

The graphics are nothing short of beautiful. You do a good bit of running around in this game. Fortunately it never gets old because the scenery around you is just so awesome to look at. I never thought a Ps2 game could look so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than a new Zelda game November 22, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Story / Gameplay

In playing as Amaterasu, A Sun-God awoken to defend a classical Japanese village in the area of Nippon, you will use a variety of weapons, combat techniques, and Celestial brushes to defeat your enemies and rid the land of an ancient evil that has been resurrected. The weapons will be your standard platforming arsenal of short and long ranged devices that you use to keep yourself from harm, and try for the opposite effect with your enemies. These will include various twists on Japanese Imperial Regalia to include, A reflector disk (Your beginning weapon), Rosary Beads (Your primary ranged weapon), and a Glaive (Powerful long sword).

The Celestial Brush is what makes this game unique. It allows you to pause the game at any time using the R1 button and paint various symbols to have a wide reaching effect on gameplay. These include, but are not limited to, attacking enemies/objects, bringing back life to various dead flora, creating platforms, and in general showing off your God-like ability to affect almost every aspect of reality in the game. The Celestial Brush will be your major gameplay factor in practically every puzzle the game offers. It's also used for story progression and helping out some of your village friends think they can do things they really can't without them knowing.

Art / Graphics

Okami draws a lot of it's animations from Japanese watercolor paintings most famous from the Ukiyo-e style. Like the game Zelda: The Windwaker, which people most commonly relate Okami to, Cel-shading is used as opposed to 3D Polygon textures to give the game a more animated feel. This serves the purpose of bringing out smoother movements in the character models and bringing the characters themselves more to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sucessor to Zelda? Perhaps September 30, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Many game critics have raved about this game, and it is no surprise. Once you start playing Okami you will quickly realize you have picked up quite the original adventure game. Okami does have certain hints of Zelda (i.e. bombs to blow up walls, searching for treasure, interaction with different people to find quests, time change, etc.) but at the same time Okami is a different animal. It is quite hard to explain really, but what really sets this game apart from most adventure games are the graphics and the almighty Celestial Brush. The graphics if anything will remind you most of Wind Waker, but while Wind Waker chose to go with the traditional style cel-shading (although they worked quite well and helped that game along), Okami chooses to go with stylistic cel shading, if that makes any sense...the graphics really bring every single enviornment in the game to life and not only that but they are defintely crucial to the whole theme of Okami on which its story is basically that of a Japanese legend novel. The calliography stylings you will find are incorporated with the watercolor-like graphics of Okami, and thus this is where the Celestial Brush comes into play. Throughout the game, you will gain brushstyles (once again reminiscent of Japanese calliography) from mythological constellations. Once you gain these you will use them to progress throughout the game. So a bridge is a broken? No problem you can fix it simply by waving your brush back and forth to create a new one. You will also use it a lot in the battles you will face, as you can draw bombs to defeat enemies quickly or draw a simple line through them to slash them powerfully and gain the upper advantage. Then at times you will face say, like a fire elemental and an ice elemental... Read more ›
