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.

The world is big, and feels a lot like you are in zelda twilight princess playing as the wolf. Attacking is done by shaking the wii mote and you can run and explore beautiful environments containing collectables and lots of interesting charactors.
Last thing I want to mention is that this game is full of great ancient Japanese lore that is beautifully brought to life and got me interested in looking into the stories more.
Only con is that sometimes the lack of voices (people make kinda rubber duckey sounds when they talk) means you will be reading a lot and could miss something important.
Play time takes a good 14-20 hours to complete the story depending on how lost you get. It will take closer to 40 to collect all the weapons and animals and fishing. (Very similar to zelda games). I love this game and think it's one of the best for the wii or even wii u.
There are a lot of reasons to love this game, ranging from unique characters, to just bizarre and off-beat enemies, and no matter what, it is a memorable classic that is easily one of the best games of its kind (i.e. more art-oriented). The 3-d art is beautiful and all of it is very different than anything else you will find on the Wii. The game combines it's open-world aspects and mini-stages, such as battles or interactive cut-scenes, wonderfully, giving the player plenty of ways to either avoid unnecessary combat or grind relentlessly for dragon fangs. Many characters will have you laughing or crying by the end of the story (and some even have a weird mixture of both!), and though it feels short lived for such a magnificent game, there is a whole host of side content to unlock upon beating the game.
My only real concerns about this game are the issues of its conversion to the Wii, and game balancing; for the casual gamer, this is a fun little story to wander around in at a nice, easy pace. However, for a hardcore gamer, or one that focuses on clearing the game as quickly as possible, it is just way to easy. I breezed through the first half of the game in just a few hours, and I finished the entirety of it two days later after a break. Not to say that it won't take time to discover all its secrets, just that I was so excited by the story-line that I couldn't help but push forwards and find the end. The enemies are mediocre at best, and simply switching between spamming physical attacks against enemies and slices could get you through most of the game (this isn't true about boss fights, all of those were awesome!).
Another concern, echoed by many people on the 1 side of the spectrum, are the motion controls. I just want to say that I steeled myself for beginning this game and my first challenge with the brush was.... painting in a river. It's that simple. The only times a shaky hand or faulty sensor hampered me was in the knocking down this random wall person who randomly popped up in places all over the island (seriously, is there just a factory that produces them and then catapults them to random places of the globe or what?!) other than that, there is nothing too difficult to master after 3 or 4 tries. This realistic brush control added way more to the game than it took away. Seriously, unless there is something wrong with the remote and the player is slow and careful with their brush strokes, there is no way to mess it up in any game-destroying way. It's just one of the games that actually fully utilizes the Wii's motion controls. It's what makes the Wii actually deliver on its reason for existence!
So anyway, in summary, if you own a Wii, you absolutely must get this game!
(Also, sorry if this was a horrible review. It's just my first so please don't flame me if I offended anyone by saying the controls were easy. I just don't think they were any reason not to buy the game.)
It's beautiful artwork and is like playing with paintings. The interactive brush techniques for the fights, makes the game very fun! The game is actually pretty long! I thought I was done after I defeated the 8 headed dragon, but apparently he was just one of the first bosses. The world expands and you travel to different cities to solve other problems plaguing the world of Okami.
My favorite combination is Main Weapon as Glaive, and Sub Weapon as Reflector. You can use Z to spin the reflector like a shield. By spinning your shield, if an enemy strikes you, you will block the attack and then throw the enemy as a counter attack. This is a great way to collect Fangs, which are traded for some very helpful items. Items that allow ink bullet, allows you to paint the enemy turning them black and blind for a few seconds. This causes them to immediately randomly attack, which is perfect for the spinning reflector counter attack. (Does not work on enemies made of metal or carrying metal shields)
Very Fun GAME!!!
