LOVE this game - it's a must-have!
on December 6, 2014
LOVE this game! Great artistic style - makes for a very unique game, both visually and dynamically. The concept behind the game play style is what really made me want to try this game out; in order to preform a special type of move you have to draw a symbol on to the screen, like you're drawing a calligraphy brush stroke into the world of the game. The characters are cute (you get to play as a puppy with divine powers :) and the plot makes the game last a WHILE. I'd have to say this is a great game for kids because the story involves themes related to trust, teamwork, and friendship.
Be aware that it is the second game in the series. The first game (Ōkami) is playable on PlayStation 2, Wii, and PlayStation 3. I would recommend playing the first game before this one (I'm just a sucker for playing games in chronological order though ;) so you understand the game play dynamics better and the story makes more sense - but you CAN play this game without playing the first game because it comes with flashbacks and explanations about the first part of the story when needed.
