Okami Wii Review

This game is simply stunning. If you are a fan of Zelda, or even games like Metroid, hopefully you have already experienced this game on the PS2 a few years back. If not, do yourself a favor and buy this game!!!
An awesome story about life and peace. A nice change from the usual blow this up and shoot here scheme. It's fun with a great moral, and a few innuendos here and there for the adult audiences. I give this game a 10, for originality, art, and the new innovative use of the Wii controller scheme. (a little buggy every now and then, but not enough to change my rating.)
With Clover gone, I can only hope that there may be an Okami 2 on the way in the future!!

If I had to sum Okami up into one word it would be "colorful". I've only played the Wii version of this game, but I can say that the Wiimote works very well in this game and does not feel like a "gimmick".

The story is detailed and beautiful along with the music and sounds that accompany the game. The game has a way of pulling you into its world. It's an easy game to be caught up in.

I do have some minor gripes that do not take too much away from the game. No voiceover, but there is this little bug noise while you read the text like they're talking (maybe in Japanese or in a Sims-like language?). Next, some of the actions with the brush can be frustrating, ex. the power slash. I KNOW I did it properly, but it doesn't register. Lastly, it appears as a little blurry on my 50 inch TV, but I do still have the basic cables for my Wii. I do wish they made the paint brush strokes not as thick as it appears on my screen. Overall, these minor issue only take the game a slight notch down to 9 from 10.
