BackgroundAmaterasu, the wolf-embodied sun god must breathe color and life into a world made dismal by the tyrannical and destructive monster Orochi. Amaterasu travels through various regions of the world to regain "Celestial Brush" powers, all the while revitalizing all life. Featuring a re-imagined control scheme built around the intuitive Wii Remote, Ôkami for the Wii offers players an unparalleled level of control and an opportunity to rediscover a critically-acclaimed and beautifully crafted adventure.
GameplayUsing the Wii Remote, players can directly manipulate the in-game “Celestial Brush.” Players utilize the brush to literally draw upon the game world, thereby altering its physical properties. Whether it’s creating pathways, chopping down trees or turning night into day, Ôkami changes the world into a virtual canvas.

Okami Score: 9/10
That's the beauty of Okami – nature, like how you're restoring nature back to the way it looked instead of having all of this artificial darkness, or how you'd naturally use the different Celestial Brush techniques in order to solve various puzzles in dungeons.
quote Monterey JackRead the rest of this review and leave feedbackI've stated this in a previous review, but allow me to reiterate the fact that I'm not a believer of the whole “video games are art” thing. They've always been something that you do to kill a couple of hours before you do something more important like school, uni or your significant other. Having said that, Okami, like Journey, is quite an experience that challenges this claim of mine. It's one of those games that's best summed up by how each of the elements work in order to create the experience, rather than the elements themselves. On their own, they're good, but to truly enjoy this majesty is to enjoy the game as a whole.
Okami is a tale of the great goddess, Amaterasu, being called into Nippon to restore it to its former glory by reviving Guardian Sapplings. What had happened was that the seal keeping Orochi imprisoned had been broken, and in an act of rage, he put a curse on the land, creating barren landscapes, polluted oceans and turned most of the inhabitants to stone. With Guardian Sapplings, Amaterasu can bring portions of the land back to life. To help Amaterasu is Issun, a Poncle (or little sprite if you will, or flea as I thought he was at first) who happens to be quite the little artist as one of the first things he does is draw up a picture of the forest sprite Sakuya, who had been protecting the Kamiki Village for over a hundred years and had summoned Amaterasu once Orochi plunged Nippon into darkness.
