Summary: ~Firstly, I just have to say to potential buyers that the Wii remote is NOT a major issue~ There are a lot of reasons to love this game, ranging from unique characters, to just bizarre and off-beat enemies, and no matter what, it is a memorable classic that is easily one of the best games of its kind (i.e. more art-oriented). The 3-d art is beautiful and all of it is very different than anything else you will find on the Wii.
Summary: This game is amazing! Based on Japanese mythology and ancient Shinto, this adventure is full of fun gameplay mechanics with the Celestial Brush that allows you to do many things once you have obtained the gods powers. This game has an amazing story, great music, fun characters, and great dialogue to go with it. The graphics are amazing as well. The art direction if this game is one of my favorite aspects of this game. It looks amazing.
Summary: If you are looking for a low key, calm, adventure game to start your kids off with, then this is your game. Old style Japanese artwork and music are just the start to this masterpiece of a game. The world is an endless map of quests and fun narrative. The makers combine old world living and values with new world twists and turns. The game is full of reinforcement of honor, integrity, and respect.
Summary: The first time I played this game was on the Wii and I thought it was a pretty good game. I played it through, to the end credits, and I was pleasantly surprised by all the many features the game offered (the places,characters, music, etc). Very much my kind of game. Then, a couple of years later, the HD version came out for the PlayStation 3 and I quickly downloaded it off of the PlayStation store for 20 dollars. And to my surprise the improvements made were huge!
