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... :(

    jmd749 Those guys were true masters of their craft. I'm very much looking forward to Amy Hennig's Star Wars game. Battlefront looks good on my PC, but without a single player campaign it's a no go for me. (15 minutes ago)

    MikeManiac61 Haven't played Mirror's Edge but always wanted to get my hands on it. Played it at a friend's house and it was fun. Curious about BF5 after what BF4 has gone through (5 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @asdfg: I'm looking forward to that too. I'm very curious about BF5 as a Battlefield fan. I don't know what to expect at this point. BF4 is DICE LA's game at this point. (7 Hours ago)
