    Okami shames them simply by being the genuine article: A stunningly gorgeous and unique masterpiece that effortlessly blends art and storytelling with puzzles and amusement. Miss this landmark effort at your peril. [Oct. 2006, p.78]
  2. Okami’s single player campaign is one of the most ambitious we’ve ever seen, and with its score of collectible items, trees to save and animals to feed as well as characters you like and a story you’ll want to revisit, this is a game you could easily wind up playing twice or thrice.
  3. The replay value for this game is immense as the storyline, sidequesting, and searches for those really rare items just never gets old.
  4. Simply one of the best games to come out.
  5. What Okami ultimately offers is a satisfying adventure with memorable characters, intuitive play mechanics, and an astonishing visual presentation. Simply, it’s a ton of fun to play.
  6. Okami's stunning good looks give it the appearance of a cross between a cartoon and a traditional Japanese ink-and-watercolor painting, and perhaps best of all, the game keeps going and going for much longer than most other games like it.

    I have to say, in terms of presentation, Okami by far is the bet game I’ve ever seen...However, games are meant to be played. And honestly, between the humor that falls flat at times, the worst plot twist I’ve seen in a game since college, and the sheer lack of challenge in the game, Okami falls well short of greatness.

    Like Psychonauts, Okami represents the end of one era of gaming and the beginning of something new. I'm not sure what it is, but Like Psychonauts, Okami represents the end of one era of gaming and the beginning of something new. I'm not sure what it is, but it's interesting (and, apparently, not contingent on next-gen hardware). Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Um título inesquecível com uma mecânica de jogo mais original que já vi na minha vida de jogador com gráficos excelente uma pintura a cada frame, o pincel celestial faz dar vida ao jogo onde você pode pintar um circulo na água daí aparece uma vitória régia, pintando um risco você tanto pode fatiar os inimigos ao meio como sair de uma cela, desenhar uma meia lua no céu faz o dia virar noite ou um círculo faz a noite virar dia e isso o Opus Magnum da Clover Stúdios, a grande idéia de jogabilidade que até Shigueru Miyamoto queria inventar, sons e músicas exemplares e dois personagens com carisma impar vulgo Issun e Suzano, Não quero desmerecer a Nintendo pois Ocarina of Time o melhor jogo de todos os tempos, mas Okami o jogo que Zelda dessa geração e a do Wii(até agora) não foi, pois muito fácil fazer um jogo em cima de conceitos novos (vide Twilight Princess no seu Wii Motion), mas fazer conceitos de jogabilidade novo em cima de um controle velho(DUAL SHOCK) como reinventar a roda, muito mais difícil não e nesse ponto que eu tiro o chapéu para Atsushi Okami Inaba.

The graphical style is vibrantOne the most spectacular games I had the good fortune of playing. Every aspect of the game oozes with love. The graphical style is vibrant beautiful in motion. The character design is wide and very varies from each of the world's areas, resulting in very few occasions where you see the exact same enemy. The best part of the game however, for me, is that the story just keeps giving. No more than 4 times, I was certain I was about to beat the game, only to be shown that the latest challenge that threatened the world was nowhere near your final test. Overall, an experience that every gamer should have. Expand

This game is an absolute waste of time and technology, when there are revolutionary games such as Brothers in Arms available, that actually manage to tell a decent and emotional story.
