Another year has passed, and I gave myself two great birthday presents: The first was a quiet day at home reading and relaxing, and the second was Okami, which I had earmarked last year in my Amazon Wishlist as something I wanted to experience rather than just “play”.
And it is well worth it, even considering its somewhat odd 4:3 layout – the gameplay is engaging, the lush scenarios are amazing, and I wonder why there aren’t more games like this. After all, shooting up aliens, crates and whatnot quickly becomes irritating and tiresome.
Unless, of course, you’re talking about Metroid.
Ah, decisions, decisions.
