Okami not a complete failure on Wii

Even though Okami is considered many to be one of the better games on the PS2, the title was considered to be a failure as far as sales go. In spite of the poor sales, Capcom decided to give the title new life on Wii. Most believed that the same situation with sales on the PS2 would happen again on the Wii, but the latest sales figures from Capcom might indicate otherwise...

Also, the Wii is a novelty. When Okami came out on PS2, next-gen was imminent and PS2 was getting old and plagued by piracy. I'm glad this game is selling the way it deserves.

Last I heard, Okami sold roughly the same amount on the Wii than it did on the PS2, when it had 4 or 5 times the playerbase the Wii had at the time. This is great news. Not bad for a port of a last-gen game.

Also, Okami Wii is an awesome game. If you don't have it, make sure you have it soon.

edit: Sales have slowed down it seems, but it looks like it managed to pass the PS2's sales.

Still, it didn't sell enough to get a sequel I bet. But I'm quite satisfied with the overall game. It's actually my favorite game of all time.

Anyone who loves the Zelda games will be blown away by Okami. Okami is actually more accessible as well. Anyway if you have the ability, get it on PS2. The controls are wayyy better, although the Wii does look a bit better (more defined colors and a bit sharper look).

It's too bad really, Okami(on PS2) is one of my all time favorite games. The idea of not getting a sequel still makes me a little sad.

Okami is a good game in all rights. My wife bought it for her Wii and she loves it. She's 60 hours in now trying to complete the bead quests. I also have it on my PS2, and I have still yet to finish it, but it's a great game. The Wii version got at least one thing right; it can play in progressive scan which eliminates the blurry visuals when played on an HDTV. I wish that Clover had included at least a widescreen resolution so I could at least see it in said resolution. Not even progressive scan but widescreen like Final Fantasy XII or Yakuza.

Ultimately, Okami is a great and long game that any core gamer should experience. I bought the original copy for my PS2 and I'm proud to own it. Especially since it's getting harder and harder to find in game shops.

I don't know about the game, since I snoozed off on the introduction. It took like 20-30 minutes just to listen to the memmmememe sounds and button pushing to get through a story that could have been told in 2 minutes via animation. Once you start the game (mind you I turned it off after 2 minutes into the actual gameplay) you still get more of this memememme sounds and story. I want to start the game damn!t, just tell the story as you go along, but don't force me to wait in anticipation... after a while your interest dies.

The game might have been great, but I wouldn't know since I didn't even get that far to play long enough.
