Okami - The best game no one played?

Interesting video by a friend of mine. I played Okami recently and was surprised at how little the majority of people knew about it.

It is my favourite game of the PS2 era.

I was happy to play it again in HD. If it appears on the PS4 I would play it again.

They should've made it for the Vita aswell, the touch screen for the "drawing parts" is perfect.

I have a problem with the story. It had too many villains. Too many 'endings' only for you to move onto another villain which shoulda been weaker than the first one(orochi). I'm very big on Japanese Mythology due to Naruto so I loved all most of the stuff in it, however em...yeah the game was poorly paced. Ypu basically kill the main villain too early and the rest of it is cleaning up after him. Also repeating bosses is just a bad idea.

Either should been shorter, or...the story shoulda moved around a bit, with Amaterasu fighting Orochi last and fighting some of the others earlier, nine tails, leviathan etc etc. Also the platforming wasn't that good. Since the game was similar to Zelda, the platforming and puzzles were just poor compared to Zelda.

Either way, 8.5/10 game. For art style, combat, mythos(imo, Shinto is simply very interesting, one of my fav mythologies/religions) and yes story, even though again the games pacing was odd.

Orochi was not the main villain in the end. Yami was the source of all the evil.

Orochi had just been revived and was still in a weakened state. The evil was still there even after Orochi's original defeat but the evil was sealed away not let loose the second time. The other villains continued to gain strength in the meantime.

Orochi is the most fun boss I ever placed. Getting him drunk to defeat his is something you never see in other games.

Clover Studios was great already with the Viewtiful Joe series, but Okami was just incredible. Considering you could find the game on both Wii and PSN this gen, I'm very surprised that a lot of people still haven't experienced it.

viewtiful game is still one of my favourite games along with god hand, even now Platinum Games are kickin ass again this game, but i still would love god hand 2 and viewtiful 3
