Okamiden: Nintendo DS Game Review

Okamiden: Nintendo DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Mar 14, 2011
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

If you enjoy Zelda, you should definitely give this beautiful game a shot!

Okamiden is the sequel for the Wii and PlayStation 2 game Okami. This time, however, you take control of Chibiterasu, the son of Amaterasu, the hero of the previous game. Returning, however, is a whole cast of characters, as well as neat puzzles, cool dungeons, and epic boss fights.

Size Matters Not

The game begins with a familiar character, Issun the flea, meeting Chibi for the first time. Unlike Amaterasu, who had lost her powers in Okami and had to regain them, Chibi doesn't know any of his powers and needs to learn them from Issun and other characters.

Though he is smaller, Chibi can do basically everything his mother can. This includes physical fighting and using the brush to summon the sun or chop down trees. The brush controls are excellent, working really well with the touch screen. Moving around in 3D takes some getting used to, it would have been fantastic to play this game on the 3DS, especially since the artwork is so beautiful.

A Wolf's Tale

The story in Okamiden is actually quite interesting, but involves a lot of reading and a lot of cutscenes. This is especially true at the start of the game, where there is barely any action at all. Even Chibiterasu yawns at one point!

Luckily, you can skip the cutscenes and get to the action faster. While there is a lot of information given in the cutscenes, you will be taught most of your new moves separately and there will usually be an [kwlink 24668]arrow that points you where you need to go[/kwlink].

Overall, Okamiden seems to be a bit simpler and easier than Okami, but the story, artwork, cool puzzles, and awesome bosses are still there. The game can be slow at times, but it's almost always worth it.

(Ship name: Star-Spider) This child is a bringer of good throughout the world, wearing a spandex costume looking like a normal super-hero's, but includes a fashionable tutu and pink material. The web that she shoots out of her hand hand be melded into any shape they want with a spoken spell, depending on the situation and amount of web they have available. If she gets her hand on her mother's wand, this child can be quite a force to be reckoned with: she has much more natural talent than her mother but much, much less control, and can cause massive amounts of collateral damage if she is not kept in check. She has an optimistic look on life and a perky attitude that can sometimes be annoying, but can become dead serious in the face of danger and is perfectly tuned for the life of a vigilante, no matter how much the villains laugh when they first see her. Next ship: Bill Cipher x Dipper Pines (Bill-Dip)
