Great game with some serious flaws

Story is awesome, art style, all that, I wish there was a whole Okami series. It's flawed, though. Great game, till you get to the brush screen, then it's wildly inaccurate, and it become extremely repetitive to try and get things right, just to further the story. The line or circle looks perfectly executed on screen, and you wind up failing. Over and over. Something is seriously lost in translation between the Wii remote and the giant brush on the screen.

When i first played okami I didn't get it much until i kept playing. Every time i picked up the controls i just felt the power flow though me and cherry blossoms flowing around me, i really felt like okami amaterasu.
There was some disturbing content while playing the game but it was an amazing experience to feel. The brush techniques were awesome too. (especially because I am an artist myself)
The title says all, i got into Japanese culture after playing the game and being blown away while learning some Japanese along the way!
In short, breathtaking and entertaining wait until your child is about 13 or 14 though

- review by 11 year old......i learned the hard way about some content

Now a lot of people really do not like the wii, I myself believe this is due to the fact the graphics are less then cutting edge unlike the xbox 360 and ps3 but that's just what I myself believe to be the cause of lesser ratings for the most part on the wii.
Now when I get a game I of course examine the graphics but not a great deal i don't really care how "cutting edge" they are or are not but when i saw okamis graphics it made me realize just how cool cell shading can actually look when presented the right way. So this game gets a 10/10 for graphics mainly because the game's selection of how the graphics were presented really matched one of the overall themes of this game which is the beauty of art.
At first when I started to fight using the reflector I was getting so aggravated because no mattter how rapidly I shook the wii remote amaterasu didn't attack constantly but then I realized you had to time the weapon swing right which made me realise how good this game actually was compared to all the other games I've played where you can just swing the remote constantly and basically be a god, not even having to use any skill to take down enemies, thats why this game made me love how you actually had to work at mastering the combination sets and the timed attacks.
One of the best features to this game was the vast character cast, true the characters are usually based off the same model but they also were given very different appearances and personalities which I loved. The quests were hard making this game a great challenge so i didn't spend only ten hours on it and beating it feeling so let down...the game took me 38 hours to beat even when i didn't do all the side quests so the whole adventure was just awesome.
Overall i loved okami it actually was a very good adventure game it was humorous in parts and very serious in others paired with the music it really made me feel heroic(lol ya i know nerdy). I'd have to say rent okami see if you like it. I sure did!:)
