    Brett's 7 makes the most sense I think. It's not entirely high but at the same time it's well above average. Unfortunately, for an Okami game I would have liked it to be so much more. The original Okami is one of the best games I've ever played - even better than Zelda: A Link to the Past (and that's saying something!). If you haven't had a chance to get the game, grab it on the PS2. Completely worth it.

    I found a copy of the PS2 game at a garage sale for $2, and I really like it so far.

    The demo sucked. I'm buying this anyways.

    I don't know about a '7' though, Brett... I'm having a FAR better time with this than I did with Metroid: Other M... I'm just content that they managed to squeeze this much Okami onto a DS cartridge. The only flaw that bugs me is the spelling and grammar errors in some of the text; Issun says "I'm was your mom's sidekick" or something near the beginning, and the words "forrest" and "echantment" are misspelled later on.

    Damn, i have no means to play the original and was really hoping this would be an excellent game to introduce me to the series. Might pick it up anyway, despite its flaws. @gamebrain8505 Its "TSUNAMI". If you're going to make a joke that low, at least spell it correctly.

    "when Nippon starts crumbling" you guys are heartless :P, lol, let's all hold one minute of silence for all the poor Japanese people that died during the earthquake and the sunami...

    I loved Okami and am confident in saying that it is the best game that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. I will buy this on principle alone, and it's good to hear that it's competently transferred to the DS.

    I'll get this one day when it drops to $20. Also, I read "weakened wolf deity" as WEEKEND wolf deity. If I ever start a band...

    random question, were those who pre-ordered this able to get it early? cause I pre-ordered this and I got it on Friday...

    I guess I'll just play the wii copy that's been sitting around for while...
  • jackthemenace - March 15, 2011 4:08 p.m.

    So, buy Okamiden, or just try and find an old version of the PS2 Okami to play? After all you lot have said about it, I'm honestly really sad that I haven't been able to find a copy anywhere D:
