5.0 out of 5 stars Okamiden thank dog., March 25, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Okamiden (Video Game)
I played Okami when it came on the PS2. Okamiden is just a perfect successor. The first reason is that it sticks to the original Okami right down to the maps and layout. Which is a huge breath of nostalgia for anyone who has played Okami to say 'hey, I remember this,' or 'That's where this happened'. The storyline is well written, there are some typos and it does have its bouts of cliche but the humor is well placed to make anyone crack a smile and some parts choke me up to tears. Partners are well developed. The only character that bugged me was the main villain. He was the least developed, stereotypical character. Some of the Brush gods have their chibified kids, which was cute. The mouse made me 'awww'. They took out the cat, rabbit, ox, sheep (I wish they hadn't gotten rid of those three), and one of the monkeys. The lack of mini games were a disappointment to me. I really missed the digging game.
The side quests are a little tricky but a welcome challenge. Monsters are well based on Japanese myth The sumi-e art and music are as enchanting and nostalgic as the first. The only down sides is that the camera angle doesn't always adjust to the perspective you need. Okamiden can lag at times if there is a lot of activity going on, it doesn't slow down much, but it is just noticeable. Towards the end, it seems that the storyline seems to fall flat until the last bit where it brings a final few twists to bring it back up. Redoing all the boss battles at the end was just as annoying as it was in the first game. but other than that I still found it enjoyable, and cute, definitely cute.
