[edit] Background

Initially released to critical acclaim on the PlayStation 2 system, players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess, who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a tyrannical monster turns the world into a ruined wasteland, she must use her magical abilities to restore the land to its previous glory full of life and color.

[edit] Game Play

Ōkami HD brings Amaterasu’s epic tale to the PS3 with fully integrated HD graphics and 16:9 aspect ratio. The trademark sumi-e ink art style lends itself perfectly to HD allowing players to experience more of the awe-inspiring world displayed in greater detail than ever before.

To create an even more immersive experience, players can take advantage of the PlayStationMove motion controller and naturally make brush strokes with the essential Celestial Brush to defeat enemies and solve puzzles. Ōkami HD will also support the DUALSHOCK3 wireless controller for those who wish to re-live the original experience.

Round 72 of the Articles Of Excellence ends with Monterey Jack coming back from a short hiatus to take the circuit by storm with his review of Okami! Describing it as being on par with nature itself, he explores its deep artistic appeal while at least keeping you on Earth by pointing out some flaws here and there while explaining how everything adds to a fantastic experience.

Okami Score: 9/10
Genre: Adventure

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 Jack
I'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.
