A lot of games could be classified art, after all games are a mixture of all the mediums we celebrate today, music, art itself, acting, and so forth. Ōkami was one of those games that always stuck with me with its vibrant world and colorful characters that truly made that argument for games as art point valid. A good 5 years later, its sequel arrives and not only that but it’s one of the games that sends off one of the most memorable handhelds in quite some time.

ITS JUST SO FUCKING CUTE!If you haven't played the previous installment in this franchise, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Stop reading this.

The same concept as the Wii, as far as the controls go what with the touch screen/motion controller.Now, instead of Amaterasu, you're playing as her son, Chibiterasu.Once again, there are demons afoot in th...0 out of 0 found this review helpful.
