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... :(

    alimokrane @asdfg: I wasnt talking about ALL gamers, I was talking to KORNdog. Way to go generalizing. No wonder the world is doing so well with everyone generalizing! (16 Hours ago)

    KORNdog sometimes i like to know how long a game is too to gauge the value proposition, but that's easily obtainable information that does not require a review. (1 Day ago)
