Suitable for first time games player,
This review is from: Singles: Flirt Up Your Life (PC CD) (Video Game)
Until I bought Singles, I was a computer games virgin! I haven't played a computer game since Infocom stopped making them - and that makes me over 40.
I must say that I was intrigued by the concept of Singles. I found it amusing and relaxing and I am well aware that this kind of emotion is NOT de rigeur amongst gameers, most of whom infinately prefer the 'shoot the bad guy NOW' kind of games which I simply wasn't interested in.
Contrary to other's reviews, this game held my attention and still does. I play for a couple of hours at a time and although it is slow, that's just about the speed I can handle.
SO for other PC game virgins, Singles is a great way to get started. For the more sophistcated gamers (and all those under 25), I certainly wouldn't recommend it!
Definitely for the oldies amongst us who need a more sombre way to get our entertainment than "Total War" provides.
