    While Xbox 360 veterans may find this to be a very similar experience in a different skin, PS3 owners will be very receptive to this game, especially since they've already been the recipients of some experimental titles. It's an experience worth playing, but we hope that the next iteration will include some form of multiplayer.

    Akimi Village is truly a fantastic little game and it's still digital crack in its purest form.
  3. Looking beyond the kid-friendly presentation, we found a goldmine of fun in this staggeringly deep yet lighthearted civ-management adventure. [Sept 2011, p.87]

    Akimi Village is a very fun game and if you like to spend hours and hours collecting resources and building a small empire then for less than ten pounds, this is the game for you.

    Much like its Kefling cousins, the Akimi provide a cute, safe environment for gamers to build a truly unique world. If you're looking for a break from the usual gaming fare, the peaceful Akimi Village makes for a great diversion.

    A great game for those who want a change of pace; something that doesn't require you to intensely stare at your TV for hours on end. If you own an Xbox 360, and have already brought either of the Kefling games, then there is nothing new here for you.

    For your money, there's plenty of gentle strategy on offer, and a lovely way to pass the time for those of us whose brains come alive to the unfolding of tech trees.

    Those niggles aside, I do want to praise Akimi Village and NinjaBee for again delivering a game without any negative dynamics to contend with: no enemies to defend against, no hurricanes or earthquakes to ruin urban development, and no penalties of any sort.

    Alternately tranquil and tedious, Akimi Village is as simple as city builders get.

    A quirky little city builder that's fun for the first hour or two and then gets long on repetition and short on reward.

    Akimi Village is a very basic game that will only appeal to a certain type of gamer. One who is willing to invest a decent amount of time into restoring the vitality of a world, through repetitive actions. Due to this and its aforementioned issues, it's hard to recommend to anyone other than the hardcore life simulator fans.
  12. Like olden days Command & Conquer. Only minus the combat, the war, and the fun. [Sept 2011, p.116]
