    One of the PS2's greatest titles is scheduled for release on the Wii

    One of the biggest surprises of the PS2 game library for a lot of people was Okami. Lauded by both game critics and gamers alike, Okami proved that what people really wanted was something different.

    Sure, a good Resident Evil title was always a plus, and God of War is an excellent series, but haven't we seen stuff like that before? Okami was unique because it honestly did implement a gameplay mechanic that nobody had ever seen before.

    And now, Wii owners are getting a chance to experience the magic of Okami in a remake of the PS2 classic, with some awesome Wii additions (namely, the control scheme) thrown in.

    Even the premise of Okami is incredibly unique -- you play as a god in the form of a wolf tasked with bringing life back to a dying world. The story was surprisingly good in the PS2 version of the game, and one aspect that really helped it out was the fantastically-written dialogue.

    The same certainly holds true for the Wii version, which features a wonderfully full-fledged storyline and fantastic writing. Characters are diverse and varied, each with their unique personalities, and make the game all the more enjoyable to play.

    I hope its just not a direct port with just the ability to use the wii remote added. I would like to see some new stuff in the game. Either way I'm looking forward to it.

    I played the japanese version on the ps2, but i don't like the way the controls are handled on the ps2 (actually I don't like ps controllers in general, anyways). If this one arrives I'll probably pick it up.
