Games Radar reports: "Okami was brilliant on PS2, its lush visuals and dreamy atmosphere combining to excellent effect and helping to make it one of the console's greatest games. Even the 'draw shape/line to trigger attack/event' gameplay, which could have been awkward, worked adequately with the analogue sticks."
"But on Wii, the paintbrush now commanded with a flick of the Wiimote, Okami comes together like a masterpiece. At least, we expect it to. Our first look comprised of the first trailer at a recent Capcom event, complete with details on how this Nintendo-bound edition will work. But we've yet to brush test the motion-controls for ourselves. Even so, when the idea makes so much sense, how can it fail to work out wonderfully?"
