Okami - Summary

The first original title from Capcom's Clover Studio -- headed up by Viewtiful Joe producer Atsushi Inaba. Okami takes place in a time when people still believed in the existence of God. The world has become a lifeless place, as shown in the game's use of Hokusai-style Japanese woodblock print visuals. Playing as Ama Terasu, a sun god who takes on the form of a wolf, your goal is to bring life back to the world. Bringing life back to the world involves defeating lots of beasts. With each beast you defeat, the world's life force is restored just a bit, with colors and eventually people appearing.

Redesigned to take advantage of this unique platform, the Wii version sports enhanced graphics and motion controls. Players uses the Wii Remote as the 'celestial brush' in an effort to seal ancient evils once again.

I've finished all zelda main games except for BOTW, and I really like japanese stuff... but I think this game is way overrated by it fans. It was my first Wii game and I've tried to finish it a lot of times, but it's so boring that I just can't keep playing it.

Great game, it's a pity that it sold much less than it should. The best Zelda-like game I've ever played.

Okami deserves to have sold much more than what it did. This game is amazing.
