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

Common Sense Media
18 May 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. Some of the cut-scene sequences show violence, too, such as a silhouette of a dragon whose head is cut off and falls to the ground. Some blood can be seen on a weapon held by a boss character.

  • 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 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. This time around you take charge of Chibiterasu, the son of the original games’ wolf goddess Amateratsu.

Okamiden

Destructoid
16 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? A new Okami game is coming out in the United States on the DS this month, in the same month that the 3DS launches in the United States.

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 after.

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 bothersome baddies. Slaying the planet's evil denizens, though necessary, cannot resuscitate its dead ecosystem.

Gamers Daily News

  • Summary: A very enjoyable addition to the DS catalog. Okamiden is well suited to fans of the original Okami, modern Zelda titles, fans of third-person 3D exploration, and those with even passable reflexes who want to try a fun game with a unique setting.

  • Conclusion: Okamiden never feels like a giant leap forward, but it was never intended as such. Instead, it shows that the world of Okami is ripe for further adventures, and that they can appear in new and exciting forms. I can only hope a new console iteration of the series is being prepared, because I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to these lovable canines.
