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... :(

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (5 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (5 Hours ago)

    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (8 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (8 Hours ago)
