Excerpt: Whilst the PS2 version of Okami got along very well with its host system, with the Wii, Okami has found its soul mate. The Wii remotes pointer function, was made for such games. Clover may long be dead and buried, but by god have they left behind a lasting legacy.
Excerpt: Originally developed by Clover Studios for the Playstation 2, Okami was a game that many passed over. But when the Wii was released, fans of the game thought that Okami’s paintbrush mechanic would work perfectly with the Wii Remote and be a better fit overall.
Pros: Great Visuals, Awesome Soundtrack, Celestial Brush techniques are really fun to use!
Cons: Fights can sometimes be a little long, Wii controls can be tricky at times, No sequel in the works
Conclusion: In essence, the single player version can feel you’re playing an extension of BioShock , as the locations and game style remain largely unchanged. As many fans of the original will agree though, that is definitely not a bad thing.
A revival of a great teen paint-to-play adventure.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game might look like a kids' game with its cute cel-shaded graphics, but it features some content not appropriate for children, including violence and blood (slash a creature using your "celestial brush" and you chop them down, and see some animated blood) and...
Summary: What else can be said about Okami Wii. The game is an artistic marvel that offers something new and exciting. The game is gorgeous and the visuals explode on the screen in 16 x 9 widescreen and 480p.
Excerpt: It’s a sad truth that many abstract games, while offering tons of fun and a welcome break from the norm, usually sell poorly. Okami is no exception; it sold pitiful amounts when it was first released on the PS2 in 2006.
