Slice those demons well

Amphioxus, amazon.co.uk
25 October 2013
  • Summary: A very accomplished action adventure game, with great visuals. The main innovation is the Celestial Brush, which provides a way of interacting with the landscape with brushstrokes and offers much more variety in your approach to puzzles, combat and hidden areas than other similiar games. It's long enough to satisfy seasoned adventurer, without being too difficult or frustrating. Well worth it at the price.

New and Old platform game lovers should enjoy this game.

Zephyr, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: At first glance, Okami seems like you average platformer affair. The wondering around is very similar to that of Spyro the Dragon, or whatever you deem fit to that category with the dashing around, breaking pots and completing errands. With this in mind I expected it to be, story wise, a particularly short one. This was not the case.

Okami - brilliant. Not perfect, but brilliant.

Alexander Seier Poulsen "Alex", amazon.co.uk
26 April 2010
  • Summary: This is an awesome game. It has a great cast of characters, an original main character and then it clearly has some of the best graphics that ps2 has to offer, with a unique visual style. The story is actually rather interesting in it's simplicity, and makes you want to move forward in the game. The downs are the lack of challenge and the combat seems a little too repetitive and easy overall, but the brush techniques add some depth to the system, though.

Relaxing, quirky, wolf-based fun, but not for the impatient.

Helen, amazon.co.uk
16 July 2008
  • Summary: This game is visually stunning, with beautiful scenery, cute animals and an amazing look reminiscent of a Japanese watercolour painting. It is relaxing to play, and although there are demons and monsters to defeat, it is generally not very taxing to defeat them, the main pleasure being derived from solving puzzles along your quest. With such low levels of violence: I really can't understand why it has a 12 certificate.

Gotta love the wolf

Mr. G. Laidlaw, amazon.co.uk
22 August 2007
  • Summary: A wonderful game. The gameplay and controls are easy to get into, the graphics are beautiful and artful, the storyline is captivating. As far as the gameplay is concerned, it shares a lot in common with the Zelda style of game. An adventure game with roleplaying and puzzle solving elements where you battle through dungeons and wild areas in order to unblock new abilities before facing huge boss battles. It's a tried and tested formula, and it works extremely well here.

"Different!"

Andrew, Mighty Ape
17 July 2007
  • Summary: I've never seen anything quite like this, imagine a game where you come across a wide river with no way across – the usual mode of thought is to look for a bridge, or way to make a bridge right? Well, in Okami, you press a button which makes your screen turn a different colour – and use your controller to paint a bridge… release the button and voila, a bridge appears – continue on…!

Spellbinding....

Mr. R. Fisher "vinylrichie", amazon.co.uk
20 March 2007
  • Summary: It doesn't seem very often that a game comes along and makes you sit up and take notice due to it's utter uniqueness. Not since Ico have I been as captivated by a video game. This game is unlike anything previously conceived. Everything from the graphics of a japanese style painting to the haunting music, the unusual and easily utilised celestial brush action and the sheer sprawling environment pulls you in.

Zelda-esque

CAPA7, amazon.co.uk
15 February 2007
  • Summary: If you like Zelda games, then you WILL like Okami. The gameplay, while not 100% identical, is very similar and, just like in Zelda, there are TONS of side quests than will make you spend hours and hours on the game. The first thing you'll notice are the graphics. They are just gorgeous and I don't think anybody could disagree with that.

One of the year's best

Earl A. Cousins "‚¨‚½&#..., Amazon
6 December 2006
  • Summary: Every year there seems to be one title that stands out from the predictable sequels, movie tie-ins, and holiday cash-grabs. This year, Capcom's Clover studio contribute Okami to the list of games that transcend the ordinary and bring a fresh experience to gaming. Cast as a powerful Japanese god named Amaterasu, you take the form of a wolf (Okami in Japanese) in order to rid the world of a dark presence known as Orochi.
