Okami for the PlayStation 2 can combine the action adventure feel of Zelda with the style of a Japanese painting. In Okami for the PS2, players take on the role of Amaterasu. The story combines multiple elements of Japanese folklore and tells the story of how Amaterasu saved the world from darkness. She takes on the form of a white wolf, and it’s this white wolf you control during the game. In fact, many of the characters in Okami take direct inspiration from Japanese folklore. Okami takes 36 hours to complete if you’re just looking to complete the main story. If you’re looking to find every item and complete every dungeon, you can expect to spend 55 hours enjoying this PS2 game. If you ever need guidance on where to go next in this PS2 game, you can consult Issun, your guide.As Amaterasu, you’ll navigate across the land in your quest to defeat evil. The game uses a third person camera to let players see more of the action at one time. When it’s time for combat, Amaterasu can use various weapons and combinations to defeat her enemies. You’ll also complete side quests to earn health upgrades and more power for your attacks. Each weapon that Amaterasu equips will alter her attacks in some way. Defeating enemies will drop Demon Fangs, which you can trade for even more upgrades. It’s no surprise that Okami for the PS2 shares gameplay similarities with Zelda. Director Hideki Kamiya said that Zelda was a direct inspiration for him regarding gameplay. What makes Okami on the PS2 stand apart is the Celestial Brush. During any point in the game, players can bring up a blank canvas. From this canvas, they can use the analog sticks to draw. For example, you can draw fireballs to roast your enemies or a gust of wind to solve a puzzle. Thanks to the tight controls, using the brush is easy, and you’ll have no problem drawing patterns. Throughout the course of the game, Amaterasu can upgrade the Celestial Brush with new patterns. You’ll learn these brush patterns by drawing constellations at specific points in the game. The Celestial Brush acts like magic in other games and is a finite resource. Once you run out of ink, you’ll need to refill it before you can draw again. The game is renowned for its art style, which mimics a Japanese watercolor painting. Clover Studio and Capcom used a cel shaded art style to make the environment, Amaterasu, and other characters look like a painting. This game uses the full power of the PlayStation 2, rendering these beautiful graphics with no screen tearing. You also don’t need to worry about slowdown or lag as you play. The bosses in this PlayStation title are massive, often filling the screen with their size. The sound design of this game is also inspired by Japanese works.
