You should change the op title and op details to reflect new price.


Price looks to be back at $14 now. Was $10 for alittle bit though! Good eye, and congrats to anyone that got it even cheaper

IMO, widescreen support makes the Wii version far superior.

This is such a great game I almost want to buy a second copy. I think I prefer the Wii version over PS2, but I could be biased because I played it first. I never had a problem with Wii controls, so I'm guessing people who say the opposite were just used to the PS2 version.

I hadn't realized that Okami Wii has dropped this low. I've been wanting to pick it up for a while now. Thanks a lot, OP.

I've heard the PS2 version was superior, but after reading those reviews, the grounds on which they claim the PS2 version to be superior don't really fit me. I might be bad with the wii remote, but I'm horrible with analog sticks. I also think the Wii's brighter colors look better over the washed out PS2 colors.

It all depends on what reviews you read. IIRC, IGN and Gamespot both said the Wii version was better overall. Not perfect, mind you, but they found it better, as did I. Using the Wii mote to draw on the screen is wonderfully fluid and intuitive, and you can't match that with the analog sticks.

In any case, the game is fantastic, and everyone should buy it. :)

I have the Wii version and I really like it, visuals and all. Widescreen + Wii painting = Win.

The Wii version's brighter colors and wide screen support make it infinitely better to me at least.

I've only played the Wii version but I had a blast with it. I picked it up in a lightning deal a couple years back for $15. It's a steal at this price. If you haven't played it and have a Wii, buy it, it's an excellent game.

Does the Wii version support gamecube/classic controls? I'm hesitant, because Twilight Princess' waggle controls made the game feel too gimmicky for me to play. Maybe Okami is different.

Updated thread to include RE4 and a $2 increase in Okami's price

Sippycupz: I think Okami requires waggle motions. Though i've heard its not as bad as in Twilight Princess, because there is a large cooldown between the moves that can be preformed with waggle
