    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]

    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.
  7. Like olden days Command & Conquer. Only minus the combat, the war, and the fun. [Sept 2011, p.116]
