Product Description

Okami Game PS2

Mixing Japanese folklore and a stunning traditional Japanese art style, Okami tells the story of a mythical sun god who sets out to restore a world to its former beauty and glory. Okami is the brainchild of Capcom's Clover Studio which is renowned for such innovative and critically acclaimed titles such as Steel Battalion and Viewtiful Joe series.

In Okami, the legendary monster Orochi has come back to life and turned the world into a veritable wasteland. Players must assume the role of a wolf, an embodiment of the sun god Amaterasu, capable of wielding unimaginable power. The state of the world lies in gamer's hands as they must fight ominous beings and reclaim the earth from a curse that plagues it. It is crucial to help Amaterasu make the world a place where all living creatures can dwell once again.

Traditional Japanese art comes alive through beautiful scenic 3D levels that have the appearance and texture of paper scrolls brushed with watercolour-like calligraphy art. As a god in the form of a wolf, Amaterasu must reclaim its powers that are scattered throughout the earth, in order to help restore the land to its former beauty. As players progress through the game, they will travel to different regions in search of the other godly embodiments that are hidden, and regain Amaterasu's powers. Rooted in the third person perspective, gamers will need to interact with the people they encounter, building their faith by clandestinely answering their prayers and wishes. As gamers lead Amaterasu through diverse environments, they will come across extraordinary monsters that originated from Japanese folklore.

Defeating the creatures that Amaterasu encounters will not be a small feat. The real-time fighting system not only involves biting and ramming strikes, but also allows for various attacks using the bronze mirror of Yata on its back as well as a host of other unique abilities. This system allows the use of a myriad of specials attacks typically not associated with the physical prowess of a normal wolf. As the wolf becomes more powerful, more attacks become available. This blend of stylized graphics and unique gameplay will result in a rich and dynamic experience never seen before.

  • Intriguing and alluring main character - Assume the role of the sun god, Amaterasu, who descends upon the earth in the form of a wolf. The Japanese translation of the word wolf is "Okami".
  • Original visuals and revolutionary design - Rich stylized 3D graphics reminiscent of traditional Japanese art created on paper scrolls produce a large variety of stages with a watercolor-esque appearance.
  • Epic tale that combines folklore and mysticism - Okami uses folklore to bring forth an immersive experience.
  • Eclectic and diverse enemies - Diverse line-up of enemies based on Japanese folklore and myths.
  • Diversified gameplay - Defeating monsters requires the usage of not only physical attacks, but Amaterasu's own unique abilities


     

Customer Reviews

A traditional Japanese style game that brings you into your world and grasps tight.<br />Okami is beautifully designed with art that lasts through generations of consoles, the many different areas within the game contain unique and stunning graphics. Unfortunately this game is often misjudged because of its old origins and the cover of the game itself isn't very impressive. I highly recommend that you give this game a chance, i pushed this game aside for years, leaving it to gather dust, finally I pulled it out and began to play it, I immediately punched myself for putting it of so long and playing other games that couldn't hold a candle to this bonfire. The game play develops nicely throughout the story, introducing and evolving a style of painting while fighting and exploring. Sure, Amaterasu can only use 4 different types of weapons, but what about the art styles? The drawing technique makes the battles more involved and interesting, each monster has a weakness that you can exploit through various styles. Okami also has a folklore form of story, based around Japan's myths and legends, many monsters that are found in game are connected to other stories which are partially included in Okami. If I haven't managed to convince you about how great this game actually is, then take a chance, you WILL be greatly rewarded.
