Okami is one of the best games I have ever encountered and played. Mere words do not do justice in describing how awesome playing this game is. The beauty of japanese art, the interesting story, the lovable characters,....I can go on and on about Okami. There are more than 100 hours of gameplay and each and every hour is rewarding and satisfying. I love RPG action adventure games, but even if you don't, give Okami a try. You will not regret it.
When OKAMI was released, I heard nothing about it, and therefore skipped playing it. But after renting it from a game store, I found out just what made OKAMI, well, OKAMI.
The painting to adjust the world is amazing, and the amount of work put into the brush gods told me how much Clover and Capcom put into making this game.
The story is amazing and many of the characters are famous figures from Japanese myth, such as Susano, Yami, and the brush gods who are worshiped as gods of tools and symbols in reality.
I could only see a few flaws in the game though; for one, I wish that Rejuvenation could have been used a little more often. But I didn't really mind, since said technique is rarely needed, and plays the biggest role in the final battle against Yami.
Overall, if you are looking for a game with beautiful graphics, an amazing story and memorable characters, OKAMI is definetly for you. Don't hesitate on renting this, I swear you won't regret it.
