Advantages: A huge game
Disadvantages: A bit confusing at times
The presentation in Okami is simply wonderful. You are pulled into this amazingly beautiful paintbrushed world with clean graphics, wonderful music and tight controls.
This game is a must for any Zelda fan or for anyone that wants to get taken on a big adventure. You play a wolf Okami who has special use of a celestial brush, with which you can interact with the game and make things happen. Rather than concentrating on having lots of different objects which you can use, the puzzles largely involve working out what to do with this brush as you learn new techniques and new brush strokes to help open up the path in front of you.
Whilst this game maintains the idea of alternating between overworld sections and dungeon sections, the two worlds are married much more closely here than in Zelda games. Some of the environments are simply beautiful and it is a joy to explore. As you progress through the game, there is a huge urge to continue to do so in order to find the next section.
I originally played this game on PS2 but stopped part way through upon hearing about the Wii version coming out and I am glad that I did so because the game hands itself nicely to the wiimote and is overall a bit sharper on Wii.
Summary: Beautifully presented and very involving
