  1. Strategy fans that are tired of war should purchase this outright. Everybody else should at least give this a try.
  2. Everything here is a bit mundane and too depressingly close to real life at times, but the gameplay is still enthralling enough to consume many hours of your spare time.
  3. As an interesting and well-thought -through study of the struggles of an everyday life, Kudos is well conceived and a welcome alternative take on life-simulation.
  4. This quirky menu-driven life simulator from ex-Elixir/Lionhead/Maxis coder Cliff Harris is seasoned with penty of wry humour. [Oct 2006, p.92]
  5. Imagine "The Sims" sans animated characters, depth, humour and variety. [Dec 2006, p.104]

A fair game, a little bit static if you are accustomed to games like Simms or others like Playboy the Mansion. Full Review »
