    Okamiden captures the charm from the first game. Fans will fall in love with this sequel.

    The Good: Beautiful visuals, charming story and characters, brush strokes are perfect on the touch screen, long adventure will keep you busy, epic boss fights The Bad: Lots of slowdown, copies too ...

    Not as good as the original Okami, but a darn good sequel!

    Rated on March 04, 2012 by Cocotroid

    First off, let me say, Okami is one of my all time favourite games. Okamiden was a game that took me forever to beat due to not putting much effort and time into playing it, but when I did play it, it...

    Although Okamiden does not have the same magic as its predecessor, it is still a fun experience.

    Okamiden is the sequel to Okami in which you play as the child of amaterasu, for this I am just going to call him Chibi (chibiterasu is the real name. The gameplay is mostly the same as the old Okami ...

    Has a good storyline and fits in where Okami left off. Very cute and is a nice game to sit back and relax too.

    The storyline fits where Okami left off. With the same beautiful art design as the original the graphics are still pleasing to the eye even if it is on the DS format. Playing as Okami's son you pick...

    My 1st impressions after Okamiden. Best played after Okami, otherwise it won't be as fun.

    Rated on December 29, 2012 by LOSTLEAD8R

    I love Okami just so very much. It gave me so much to go through within a game. The art style is amazing, the story is wonderful, the characters are awesome, the gameplay is nostalgic, inventive, clev...

    A great game for any Okami fan, and still a fun game for those who've never played Okami!

    I'm a BIG Okami fan, and there were parts about Okamiden that I REALLY loved, and parts about I'm not so sure about. First thing Okami gamers will note is the limitations on what you can do, from w...

    Saw This one coming...

    When I first heard that an Okami Sequel was to be made, I flipped. I thought it was going to be another epic tale that'll keep me glued to the TV for hours upon hours...then I found out the original d...

    So do all good sequels have to be on a hand held nintendo?

    Rated on March 18, 2011 by conkerton

    This will be nice and short. Game play/Graphics/Story Good to great. This took me back to using the original Okami powers and game play. Watching the emotions and reactions the people give still gi...

    Doesn't quite live up to it's predecessor but takes the DS out with a bang.

    Rated on March 20, 2011 by kbaily

    First off let me just say that I LOVE the first Okami. There were were sitting around playing the same boring Zelda game, picking up another boomerang in a forest temple and cursing the water temple w...

    A worthy sequel to a legendary game.

    Rated on March 20, 2011 by Vsin

    Lets get the facts straight first: it's not hard, it's not as long as Okami and to be blunt it's definitely not as good. There are obvious flaws in this game, attributable to either being on a portab...
