One Of The Most Beautiful Video games Ever made!
28 April 2007 | by SamiCybertronSee all my reviews

Okami is the story about a wolf of Amaterasu (a god in Japanese mythology) who is on a magnificent quest to rid the world of the evil forces of Orochi (Another god in Japanese mythology). Along with the help of the wisecracking, fun loving Issun, both of them go all over Japan uncovering many different events that happen in the game.

This game is just simply unbelievable, Its got such a wonderful story and so many wonderful characters you'll meet in the game. You'll laugh, cry, even become angry at what this game has to offer, but trust me. I loved this game to bits and I played it all the way through and it did aggravate me abit, but just go with it.

Highly Recommended!!!
