    The most beautiful looking game I've ever seen. I hope more games use styles like this rather than bland realism and hyperrealism

    Yep, this is one game I'm definitely looking forward to.

    You have to rate Capcom for trying something different. I just hope the gameplay is as innovative as the graphics.

    This game looks STUNNING!!! I've recently been checking up on this game daily, and I have to admit, i'm looking forward to it more then the new Zelda :eek:.

    I wish WindWaker used that style, although that looks great too.

    Yeah, it's a real innovative AAA title: which I don't hope gets too lost in the hype of the Playstation 3 launch.

    busy nights ahead by the look of it...

    What with already playing PS2 version of RE4, going through Halo 2 again, Burnout Revenge on 360, plus another copy of God of War to drop through my letterbox at the same time as Okami...

    Man, I'm gonna be too tired for work! ;)

    I watched the video review last night, looks like a superb game. Nice to know there are still some must have games coming out on the PS2, makes me realise it was worth keeping:)

    Not that I can think of I'm afraid :(

    Whilst on the subject of swap magic where can I pick one up, my chipped PS2 is on the verge of kicking the bucket, fortunately I have a US one as well but I have a few Japanese games.

    Great game, but the fights seem too easy so far. It's not going to be to everyones tastes, but the Japanese-ish style, storyline and characters are a nice change from the rather uninspired western RPGs (I'm also playing Oblivion at the mo, expansive but a bit generically derivative).

    Anyone know what the "Ink Bullets" do? I just got that new weapon/plate thing off the
    Spider Queen
    but it dosent seem to do anything?

    EDIT: sorted it, you apparently have to have the new reflector equipped as your main weapon, then click little dots like a machinegun and it fires. Been having a blast doing counter-attacks and collecting demon-fangs to trade, now the scrolls dont chase me and i auto-collect items - sweetness!
