Okami is revolutionary on so many different levels. If you own a PlayStation 2, you absolutely must buy this game. This is one of the best (if not THE best) games on PS2.

We like

  • Okami has perfected the fun formula and created the most original experience in a videogame, ever.
  • The cell-shaded art style fits both the story and gameplay of Okami perfectly, and makes for the most beautiful PS2 game that you've ever laid your eyes upon.

We dislike

  • Combat isn't all that deep.
