To start, let me say that this game is not without its flaws. However, it plays beautifully and I feel that it is a great sequel to the masterpiece that was the original Okami game. The celestial brush and the stylus combo of the DS work wonderfully together, and it really does feel like you're the one summoning the divine winds. Now, on to the positives:
-Fantastic storyline, but it's Okami so you have to expect that. There are enough twists and deep backstory to keep a player quite interested until the end and beyond.
-I cannot fully describe how adorable this game is. Chibiterasu is about the cutest thing since baby kittens rolling around in baby bunnies. There were points of the game where I just melted at the sheer adorableness of it all. Don't let that fool you though, the plot is anything but childlike.
-The visuals for a DS game are A+. They really put their all into make a functional, pretty, stylized game for the DS and I'm glad the DS got a good hurrah before the 3DS comes out. The sumi-e style artwork is back, and though it's much less detailed than the original game, it still works.Read more ›
Overall, it's not often that I am affected by a video game, but there certainly a few tears shed at the end. Again, the story is perfect. I truly hope that this game sells well enough that a sequel will be considered. Okami was one of the best underrated games, and Okamiden is a terrific sequel.
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.
Speaking of monsters, I would like to highlight the boss battles. The boss designs are impressive, and their battles are fun and generally quite varied. They seem to have even more personality than the bosses in Okami, too. Getting to the final boss is a bit annoying, but those last scenes are worth it.
As a sequel (or spiritual successor, I guess) to Okami, it falls a little short. It's basically Okami, down to many characters, most of the places, and even revisiting the story of Orochi. It doesn't stray far from what Okami provided, which is probably a good thing for now. Without the original Clover team, getting too original with the new story could have taken away too much of the atmosphere and authenticity.
To be honest, playing Okamiden on the DS convinced me even more than Okami really is more at home on a big console. The Celestial Brush is fun and cool, wonderful to use with a stylus of course, but personally expressing the story, art and music as clearly as possible is most important to me.Read more ›
