Looks ok but not much better than the PS2 version, would have looked awesome in 720p.

I still have my PS2 copy unwrapped... Is it really all that good? (I hope)

Well I guess as soon as I finish some other titles it's Okami for me. ;)

Okami looked graphically superb on the PS2 purely because of its gorgeous artwork. I doubt it would look much better on the Xbox 360 in all honestly except that pop up might be reduced. I think those issues add to the charm of the game myself, everything looks like it's made of paper, trees are 2D and there's a papyrus-type effect on the screen. It's a really, really beautiful and memorable-looking game IMO.

The Wii version is looking almost as good as the PS2 version, it just seems to lack that version's bloom effects which gave the game a dreamy, hazey look. I'm definitely picking the game up again for the Wii as I think its controller will suit the Celestrial Brush to a tee. Sadly, living in the UK, it's looks like I might have to wait... :(

    Sdarts Also a great article, specially the last section titled "But back in reality", so we don't hype it too much, but it's still very promising results, specially considering DirectX 12 is in early stages. (4 Hours ago)
