    I'm not sure why everyone likes this game so much. Graphics are okay, but the character sound for dialog is way too annoying, all that repeated chirping of the same sounds over and over and over. Also, the Power Strike or whatever, seriously, does the line have to be perfect? Like immaculately perfect in order to use the move? I much prefer a button mash, smack down than a prissy "draw theI'm not sure why everyone likes this game so much.

I much prefer a button mash, smack down than a prissy "draw the line and even if the line looks fine it won't work cause the game didn't even recognize you did something." Mind you, I unfortunately rented the Wii version which, as I understand it, practically ruined the playability. Based on WII performance, if I could give a negative score on this I would chose negative 1 million for my trouble. Thank the universe I only rented it free from a library and only wasted my time and not money. Bottom line, if you like the PS version stay with that. Wii bombed on this one. Expand

    Bah, I wanted to like this game so much. I played for 4 hours, the quit after the game made me break my wii mote all over the damn place. The painting scenes require way too much precision. I got to a part that makes you sit through a minute long cut scene, (why you can skip through all other cut scenes but not this one is beyond me) and then makes you draw little circles over fruit for Bah, I wanted to like this game so much.

I got to a part that makes you sit through a minute long cut scene, (why you can skip through all other cut scenes but not this one is beyond me) and then makes you draw little circles over fruit for about a minute. sounds easy right. HA. goddamned pos likes to accept half ass circles, and then completely ignore perfect circles, making you start over again. After my 5th retry I snapped. goodbye wii mote. Goodbye Crap game. Oh yeah, the fighting sucked too. Expand

    I was enjoyed the game but gave up about 45 minutes into it when I couldn't advance. The brush strokes made the game completely aggravating. They have to be perfect otherwise they won't work and with the jumpiness of the remote this was near impossible. I play games to enjoy myself not to make me suicidal.

    I have a big problem with this game, seeing as the PS2 version was one of the best looking, most playable games I ever saw on that console. I got the Wii version and couldn't wait to play it only to find that the graphics looked washed out and seemed to have lost their 3D 'look' and bad graphical jitters in places... and this was in the first 30 seconds of playing the game.

The worst thing of all though is that I can't even draw the with the brush to gain the first power! No matter how many times I try and draw, it looks like my brush stroke at the beginning doesn't even register on the screen. This is apart from the fact that my brush jumps all around the screen at times? Have I a bust Wiimote? All in all, I've had to use all my self control to not Frisbee my game disc out of the window. Has anyone else had similar issues, especially with the brush controls? Expand

    This is a marvelous game in terms of artistry, sound, and yes, even gameplay, despite being hamstrung by the poorly implemented Celestial Brush controls. Despite the headaches you'll undoubtedly experience, it's still worth playing Okami on your Nintendo Wii.

    Unique and captivating characters await you at every flower laden step. From combat to exploration, every action rewards the player with items, experience, or another breathtaking look at this gorgeous world.
  3. A must-have title for anyone who has ever loved a Zelda game, a Clover Studio game, or any time-intensive 3D adventure game. The only people I would advise against buying Okami are those on the extreme left or extreme right of the "casual/hardcore" gamer divide.
