Complete the game's 50 dating missions and deal with the drama queens and kings who you'll have to come to understand in order to woo. The typical dating game plays much like a graphic adventure, where you play the part of a young man (or on rare occasions, a girl) trying to find love.

They simply was intended to be the Western response to the Japanese games however then the developers failed and I’m going to explain why.

To start with, the story is a load of stereotypical rubbish about a group of college friends going off to a ski resort to have a good time.

‘Gameplay’ boils down to choosing from a preset selection of lines on the touch screen and trying to say the right things to advance the conversation in the correct direction.

Remember when you bought your shiny new DS for those revolutionary new ways of interacting with your games and all the innovative possibilities that the touch-screen might offer? There are so many problems with this basic game premise that it’s difficult to know where to start. Sitting there and just tapping away at lines of wordzzzzz..zzzz…The boredom is also complimented by infuriating frustration as it quickly becomes apparent that the ‘right’ things to say to NPC characters are the things that you’d never expect and when most of the conversations are so bloody weird in the first place, selecting the correct options is a lottery.

Note: This review is part of a series I am going to call “Resurrected Reviews”, essentially stuff that I wrote for previous (now deceased) blogs and review topics on various gaming forums over the years.

Some of the chapters are very long so not having to re-do the entire thing over due to an inevitable error should be a relief but in practice these checkpoints have a downright sinister side. Well, the cartoon-like character art is pretty good but otherwise…no!

You see, saying the wrong thing sometimes means that certain text selections don’t pop up further on in the chapter. a checkpoint means that you can return to that checkpoint as many times as you like but it will be impossible to correct said error and you will always be left with the same strand of dud responses post-checkpoint. The “gameplay” is about as inspiring as an empty void, the DS’ unique features are all wasted and the humour is as funny as a funeral on a rainy day.

I have dragged them kicking-and-a-screaming into the harsh light of the present day and revamped them where necessary. could be lying in wait; woeful software for handheld gaming devices for instance. People handed over £25-£30 of their hard earned cash for this at the DS launch! Some people out there (they won’t show their faces for the shame) would have bought this back in April 2005 going to pull any punches here; this game is crap.
