To call the game a dating simulation however is a bit of a misnomer as the game really doesn't have any dates at all.Instead it's more a group of people chatting and you having to impressed them to progress further in the game. Two people; Becky and Brett are into their final week of their winter stay at a ski resort and want some last minute dates and chats with guys and ladies.The game is extremely repetitive in nature but it doesn't seem that way while you're playing.That could be because it's somewhat interesting and unique to challenge yourself to impress a guy or girl in a game.Superstars Aly & AJ make the leap from television and music into video games as they star in their first playable story... Alyson Renae and Amanda Joy are heading out on their World Tour... Join the teen idols as they sing and play their way through awesome adventures and interactive mini-games! * Advance through 20 dramatic dating missions to get that girl or guy, or lose 'em for that matter.* Intelligent AI makes for a wide range of emotions and reactions from all of the characters. * Collect gifts in your inventory to bust out in a jam. It isn’t a dating simulator despite what any marketing claimed, there’s no stat building and no real choice about who you date.There’s also no gameplay aside from selecting dialogue choices and even this mechanic creates inconsistent difficulty throughout.
There is about ten of these overall so there is repetition in that aspect too.The necessity of this only becomes apparent when you look at the player characters, Becky and Brett. Both stories are entirely separate narratives and despite sharing the same cast there are no meeting points or overlaps.For there to be any fun it’s necessary for the cast to be blank slates with stereotypes like Nerd, Jock and Rich Boy draped over them.The Nintendo DS is a gaming innovation and thus you're going to see things you don't see on other platforms.Ubisoft has taken the plunge in this aspect and released a dating simulation, something that you usually don't find in the west let alone PAL territories.
