    Oh! Edo Towns is middle-of-the-road when compared to Kairosoft's entire library. But no one is doing sim titles on mobile phones quite like this small Japanese developer. Although I don't recommend Oh! Edo Towns for all gamers, genre fans will find a lot to enjoy in Kairosoft's latest.

    It's not a flawless package: there are some localization hiccups every now and then, and it's frustrating to waste time and money using crafts and erecting facilities that turn out not to yield much. But Oh! Edo Towns' combo of engaging simulation gaming, interesting theme, and distinct Kairosoft charm makes it well worth your time.

    A mediaeval marvel, brimming with virtual life and character. Minor conversion issues aside, Oh! Edo Towns is highly recommended.

    If you're a fan of Japanese history, as I am, you are sure to have a soft spot for this one.

    Oh! Edo Towns doesn't come close to the highs of Grand Prix Story or Mega Mall Story, but it's quite a bit better than Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy in the town building area. It's definitely worth playing.

    For those who have followed the Kairosoft releases, Oh! Edo Towns polishes the management gameplay from High School Story with a dash of Hot Springs Story on top of it, though you're likely suffering from burnout at this time; if you're yet to plunge in to the world of Kairosoft's amazing games, this is a great title to cut your teeth on.

    Oh! Edo Town is still a nice game to spend a couple of hours with, but compared to the other Kairosoft titles I place it in the bottom segment. Too random, too self-running and the first title that actually feels tired of using the same formula.
