This is my favorite PS2 game and one of - if not <i>the</i> - best games I have ever played. The story is pretty quirky and gripping, the characters are funny and lovable, and the combat kicks ######. The puzzles are extremely fun and just the entire style of the game is simply amazing. If you like adventure games then THIS IS the game for you. If you're skeptical about purchasing it I implore you to at least rent it and give it a chance - it's incredibly fun, and I hardly rant about games like I would this one. This could be my favorite game of all time.

    Heh, I thought it was more like Zelda redone with some Japanese Mythology.

    Definantly has some good play mechanics.

    Once I finish up FF12, I'll be going through this as my other console game I saved for summer.

    This is one of the reasons I plan on buying a PS2.

    Had it for ages (got it when it first came out in the UK) and it's a great game. Doesn't make my 'best evar games' list but it certainly was considered for it as it's exceptionally good.

    The art style is snazzy, characters interesting and the plot isn't as predictable as it leads you to believe it is :D

    This game was very awesome and I really did enjoy it. Not very difficult though except for a few random sections, but still a really excellent game.

    I love how you can make the wolf really pudgy after finishing it once. Nothing gives me more jollies.

    Yes, japanese mythology Zelda fits. Good game.

    This game is <b>awesome</b>. Humorous, mostly light-hearted, and tons of fun, not to mention the art style.

    heard plenty of good things about this game, haven't gotten around to it yet...

    and how have so many people avoided owning a ps2 for so long? they're probably like $50 now =p
  • ThansalThansal The New Scum Join Date: 2002-08-22 Member: 1215Members, Constellation
    They still go for around $130 new, and buying used ones can be an iffy bet.

    however there are so many games out that I really want that I will pick one up eventualy.
  • DiscoZombieDiscoZombie Join Date: 2003-08-05 Member: 18951Members
    yeah, the bad thing about jumping on a console bandwagon late is that there's always so many good games to catch up on that it's completely overwhelming :o
  • ThansalThansal The New Scum Join Date: 2002-08-22 Member: 1215Members, Constellation
    I personaly think that is a good thing.

    I got my Wii shortly after release (lucky me) and so far have only bought 3 games for it. Sure there are other games I would like, but I can't justify the $$ the cost, however with the PS2 I can just start buying games as I crave a new one. I KNOW what gaems are worth it, and I can get alot of em at a discount <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin-fix.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin-fix.gif" />
  • DiscoZombieDiscoZombie Join Date: 2003-08-05 Member: 18951Members
    yeah I've been snagging up GC games to play on my Wii for uber cheap. metroid prime for $5, SSBM for $10...

    I've watched my friend play Okami once, and all she did was paint smilie faces for 45 minutes...
    <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/confused-fix.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="???" border="0" alt="confused-fix.gif" />
    Looks like a good game though

    The art is wonderful, that's what made me decide to buy the game. That and, in the demo I played, I really liked the play style, very unique. I ran around in circles for about ten minutes making flowers appear. I would have liked for it to be a little harder, but all in all good game. Highly recommended.

    It was incredibly easy, but it's absolutely <i>gorgeous</i> and totally deserves all the honors it won. I was so very disappointed at how poorly it sold in both the US and Japan, and that Clover Studio was disbanded (although the folks are still at Capcom, just not together in a single studio anymore)...
  • GeminosityGeminosity :3 Join Date: 2003-09-08 Member: 20667Members
    I was baffled because clover was nuked before Okami even came out over here. I did my part and bought the beatiful game though... did you?

    ~insert picture of moustachey person pointing at screen and big text saying "OKAMI NEEDS YOU!"~

    I've wanted to play it since I heard about it but... until the Wii, I haven't owned any consoles. Played on most of the previous generations though.
    Maybe I'll downlo- I mean, rent it.

    Reason Clover got nuked?

    Because their game after Okami was bad.
    SOOO bad.
    OMG it was horrible.
    I think they were trying to make a satire of how crappy it could be, and it just comes off as crap.

    It's like a gei version of Devil May Cry :O

    Apparently it has a great fighting engine to it, but thats masked by the amazingly hard difficultly levels, and crappy exterior.
