Okamiden (DS) - Review

VGChartz
13 May 2011
  • Excerpt: When the original Okami first launched back in 2006 for the Playstation 2 it instantly hit the status of cult classic. Wii gamers begged Capcom to port the game over to Nintendo’s motion controlled console, and again the game performed well, but no one really thought that Capcom was planning on...

Okamiden DS Review

Console Obsession
4 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Okamiden will leave Okami fans feeling nostalgic, the world is the same, some key characters return, and there’s even sections of the game that feel as if they were directly lifted from the overlooked and legendary original game, to the extent that on occasion it strays into remake territory.

Review: Okamiden (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
22 April 2011
  • Summary: Like its protagonist, Chibiterasu, Okamiden is but a small pup amidst an onslaught of big name, first quarter portable releases. Despite the overwhelming odds, it manages to stand out with its unique presentation, likable characters, and a control scheme that matches up almost perfectly with the...

Adventure where you paint to play, but with some violence.

Common Sense Media
21 April 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Okamiden contains some fantasy violence, as you can engage in combat with your "celestial brush" against enemies. This might include slashing the screen as if you were using a sword or biting and head-butting to defeat the foe.

Expert Review

Game Observer
21 April 2011
  • Excerpt: A good game that looks and plays surprising well on the DS, but Okamiden’s initial slow pace may lose some before the end-credits roll.

Okamiden review (DS)

HonestGamers
18 April 2011
  • Excerpt: I have a long history with Okami , the highly praised title from the ill-fated but highly skilled development team at Clover Studio, but none of that history has anything to do with the process of actually playing the game.

Legend of the Tiny Sun

RPGamer
13 April 2011
  • Excerpt: When Okami was released in 2006 on the PS2, it quickly became a sleeper hit, enough so that it was rereleased in early 2008 for the Wii with a new control scheme. Unfortunately, the game still wasn't successful enough to keep its developer, Clover Studios, in business, and the company folded soon...

Dog Day Afternoon

RPGamer
13 April 2011
  • Excerpt: "The pen is mightier than the sword" has usually been a figurative expression save for the purposes of humorists, but in the case of Okamiden it is wholly accurate. Young Chibiterasu does wield a few weapons, but his use of powerful calligraphy is the savior of the world, not the slaying of...

Okamiden

Destructoid
9 April 2011
  • Summary: Okami is a beloved cult classic, but the game failed to meet sales expectations when it was first released on the PS2 back in 2006. Capcom recently stated that they believe that the game undersold because it was released so closely to the launch of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/Wii. Guess what?
