Okamiden DS Review

Console Obsession
4 May 2011

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.

  • 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.

Okamiden (Nintendo DS) Review

Cubed³
23 March 2011
  • Summary: Okami was much loved upon its PlayStation 2 release, but sales never seemed as if they would reach high enough levels to justify a continuation in the series, perhaps due to the unfortunately timed released - just as the next generation consoles were beginning to emerge.

GamePro.com

  • Pros: Control scheme works very well on the DS touchscreen; fun combat; great boss battles; plenty of quests and collectibles; faithful to the source material.
