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. Ported successfully to the Wii by Ready at Dawn Studios, Okami remains just as vividly beautiful now as when it did when it was released on the PS2 a few years back.
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 characters in the village who smoke and drink. It's not excessive, nor is it out of context, but this game was designed with teenagers in mind, and not younger kids.
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. You can spend hours just admiring the world and that’s before even attempting to get down to the story. The story itself is quite unique and I had such a great time exploring the world and conversing with the humorous cast of characters.
Conclusion: This is beauty on a disc. If you missed out on Okami before, it would be a sin for you to miss out again. It's that good. (actually, I don't think any divine punishments await if you don't play it) But games like this come along once in a lifetime.
Summary: Featuring a re-imagined control scheme built around the intuitive Wiimote, Okami offers players an unparalleled level of control and an opportunity to rediscover a critically acclaimed and beautifully crafted adventure.
