Okami is a masterpiece from the PS2 era. Without a doubt, it stands among the best games I have ever played. The art style is breathtaking, with its vibrant colors and captivating visual design. The attention to detail in every brushstroke is simply remarkable. Moreover, the OST takes the experience to another level, perfectly complementing the gameplay and enhancing the immersive atmosphere. Okami truly captivates me in a way that few games can. It's an fucking extraordinary experience.

I slept on this when it came out for no real reason. Every now and then there is a game recommended to me by a lot of pals and I don't get around to play it for years
It was definitely worth it when I finally picked up this version though, holy moly what a beautiful, charming adventure. Highly recommend giving it a shot!

I first played this game years ago, and I was mesmerized by it. It was such a beautiful game, with amazing puzzles, and such a great story. And for the longest time now, I've been meaning to replay it properly. And now that I have, I feel like I have an even greater appreciation for it.
As I said prior, the game is so beautiful. The best way I have of describing it is that it's a living painting. Everything has this amazing style to it, and how every line feels like unique brushstrokes. I noticed that shadows were brushstrokes as well. Okami is a game where its beauty will last to the end of time.
I fucking love the brush mechanics. Being able to draw specific patterns to solve problems is amazing. I love how each brush ability has the power to interact with the environment, and I love seeing how they interact with random things, such as trees or NPCs. I definitely struggled with some of the puzzles, but that's because I'm a bit stupid, and I forget that I have certain abilities. On the other hand, the combat is really fun too. It feels like a typical hack and slash's combat, but that in conjunction with the brush abilities allows for it to be so much fun.
The story as well is another beautiful aspect of the game. It feels so much like an actual myth. I feel this in both its pacing, and the general events that happen within the story. That aside, the characters are all unique, and the game really got me to care about all of them. And god, I won't go into details, but that ending feels so much more powerful now than it did when I played it years ago.
Okami is a timeless game, and still one I find beautiful to this day. I'm so glad I finally got around to replaying Okami again, it was so worthwhile.

My comfort game! I love everything about this game, I played it when I was a very young child and everything about it has shaped my taste today.

very unique platformer from the ps2 era
took me a long time to get into it and it is a really long game for the genre but i enjoyed my time with it

A beautiful tapestry of adventure filled with engaging combat and a heartwrenching story. I never thought it would be possible to be so invested in the story of a wolf, but this game stands as one of my all-time favorites.
Combat and exploration are very Zelda-esque. Every character in the game has their own enticing story to discover. Okami is an experience that you won't want to miss.
100%: Completing the various compendiums will take some time, but aren't overly difficult. Some of the late-game battles can be challenging.
