Wish it was a bit more like the My Sims for Wii where you actually get to design the houses, but as a DS game it is very entertaining.
If you liked the first My Sims DS and even some of the DS Harvest Moon games, I think you will like this game.
Game Play: First off, you do not have to worry about keeping your personal needs levels up. There's not a shower or toilet around. You don't even have to sleep although you can sleep which is useful for fast-forwarding the game if you need to be in a certain time of the day to complete a mission or play a mini-game. Some of the items in the game are useless. You go into people's houses or shops and you can't use anything; you can't even sleep in their beds and sit in their chairs. Items that you buy (i.e. the pool table, pinball machine, etc) you can't even play! What's up with that?!
Mission: This game has a lot of weird science going on which, at first, seemed very odd but I ended up thinking it's kind of cool. You work with an 80 year-old professor named Dr. F who is very funny in his lines and mannerisms. The first thing he does is give you an Extractor that collects the Essences (raw materials that make up most things) that, when put in a Synth-O-Tron, will create items ("For science!"). Later, he will ask you to collect a variety of parts for another important invention which include a Perplexing Paw (see what I mean by "weird science"?).Read more ›
I love Animal Crossing, loved the original Sims, loved Sims 2 for DS. This is a genre I'm usually into, but this one just kinda feels like a knockoff - some game thrown together by a no-name company to cash in on a trendy genre, not something that's actually a part of the Sims series. Right now in the game, just about all I can do is combine "essences" to make stuff and place it in the town. This would be much more interesting if I knew what I was trying to accomplish in doing this - putting random stuff in random places just isn't that exciting, especially since right now I have very limited control over what I can actually make.
The minigames are okay, but not good enough to carry the game. And it takes forever to run around the kingdom - which is always an issue in this type of game, but again if I felt like there were a reason for me to run to a particular place it wouldn't be so annoying.
Overall, this game starts off very slowly with minimal plot to introduce the characters and overall structure, then sets you free with a minimal number of things you're capable of doing and little direction as to why you're doing them or what would be the best way to go about doing them. It feels very slow and pointless, and I've lost interest almost before I've started.
And as a side note - why is it called Kingdom, and why is there a king? If you're going to sell a game like that, at least have the decency to make it medieval-themed. That would definitely have bumped up the novelty factor some.

This is an ok game but it doesn't hold your attention for longer than a week, but for the price it's worth it.Published 1 month ago by trippind27

It came perfectly! The case was still intact and the inserts were all there as well. There was nothing wrong with the game at all.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer

Bought this for my daughter expecting a new game. Received a pre-owned game instead. That was not disclosed in the ad. Not very happy about that.Published 5 months ago by penguin
