Okami Microreview – 20/20
Inspired by classical Japanese myths, legend and folklore, Okami is an action-adventure video game, developed by Clover Studio and published by Capcom, that weaves a tale of the Shinto sun goddess, Amaterasu, who takes the form of a white wolf and saves the land of Nippon from an overwhelming evil presence.
Nothing delights me more than experiencing a game with unique perspective that resonates with my taste. It thrills me the protagonist is a wolf, my favorite animal and a non-anthropomorphic wolf at that, whom the player controls exclusively throughout the game. The graphic style is appealing and quite timeless in contrast to the common realistic interpretation. Gameplay and mechanics are quite fun and noteworthy, with enough simplicity to enjoy and enough challenge to intrigue. It quickly became and has continued to be my favorite game and I highly recommend it to all.
