    Sweet!

    This game was too long and bored me.

    I think I put in around 45 hours before I quit playing Okami. This doesn't seem like much, but in games like this I was getting bored at the 15 hour mark. With that being said, its a long game, but this also caused me to... Read Full Review

    A good game that should be picked up.

    When I first heard about using a brush as a weapon, I was pretty skeptical. But after playing Okami, I was surprised at how good it was. The visuals are the best thing abot the game. It all just looks really good. But I ... Read Full Review

    The world is your canvas, and Okami brings charm, adventure, and puzzle-solving to a backdrop of Japanese mythology.

    I'll be honest with you. I picked up Okami rather late, maybe six months or so after it came out, so a lot of the initial hype surrounding it largely passed me by. But within the first few hours I was hooked. It became m... Read Full Review

    A great story and art design make this a worthy successor to the gaming community.

    In Okami you play the role of Amaterasu (Okami), who is the God of the Sun, and is basically a God in wolf form. Amaterasu is also the reincarnation of another God in wolf form named Shiranui, who helped rid evil away fr... Read Full Review

    A one-of-a-kind classic that needs to be in every gamer's collection.

    Okami was released rather subtly. There wasn't a big advertisement for it and it seemed to have slipped into the shadows (Well, until the Wii release), which is a shame because everything about it is simply beautiful. ... Read Full Review
