    Mega Mall Story is a brilliant tycoon game that is more fun (and economical) than spending a day at the mall.

    Mega Mall Story's subject and style seem particularly suited to younger female casual gamers; after all, malls are considered the domain of teenage girls. But the game never feels like it's deliberately aiming for a female audience, which is to its credit. If a charming, happy, absorbing game about a mall appeals to you, Mega Mall Story is worth your time.

    All of its pieces fit snug and everything you do contributes to a whole package. It's also one of its most wide-reaching games, combining social and sim aspects from all over the place.

    Any Kairosoft App Store release should be an insta-buy for sim fans at this point, and Mega Mall Story is certainly no exception. It's well worth the meager asking price, but buyer beware: it can have a profound effect on productivity. And one's social life.

    Mega Mall Story represents Kairosoft's most addictive game experience yet. It strikes the perfect balance between accessibility and simulation depth.

    Mega Mall Story shares some issues with the previous made-in-Kairosoft games, like touch controls far from perfect and its lack of replayability. Anyway there is no doubt that this one is the best and deepest sim the Japanese studio has developed until now.

    Mega Mall Story is one of Kairosoft's, IOS's best simulation games that can Hold a candle to Game Dev Story. Fans will instantly feel familiar with the basic gaming mechanics that we have all begun to love. Mega Mall Story has exstordiairy game play depth which is only seen in the best of titles. The usual graphics, funky music, addicting gameplay and sims will justify your money well spent. Full Review »

    It's a fun game while it lasts but the difficulty is low. This is my first game by Kairosoft and I've heard that they are known for some fairly difficult games in this genre. However this is probably one of the more easier games I've played in awhile. It's a bit to easy to get money and a bit too hard to get different stores. However it's really entertaining while it lasts and can be quite fun for awhile. However Game Dev Story was definitely a better game and I would recommend playing that one first and then play this one. Full Review »
