Could do without the soap opera

Some parts of the game were too hard for my seven-year-old. As a parent, I didn't like the soap opera that goes on in between the designing. One male character was my daughter's character's boyfriend. He asked her if she wanted to live together. I found that inappropriate.

CSM Review Skimped On Quite a Few Details!

Some parents may not like the occasionally immodest clothes and crazy makeup (which I honestly didn't mind at all). But I was really surprised and a little disappointed to see that CSM didn't warn parents about the game's subplot: the main character falls in love with a guy who asks her to live with him. They do marry in the end, but it's still wrong for a kid's game. Also, in the song "Billy S." on the game's soundtrack, the word "****" is used (in the near-profane way), the word "hell" is used in "Suddenly I See," and all the background songs (except "Wake Up") are about romance, or have romance-related lyrics or themes. Imagine Fashion Designer:New York isn't a super-racy game, but considering the target gamers' ages, I think they could've done better with the game's plot and background music choices.

Okay I guess for older kids, but not for tweens

I bought this along with Style Savvy for my 9 year old daughter. She found this game confusing and uninteresting. She can't put the Style Savvy game down. I was also concerned that this game is recommended for girls so young when bosses ask to be boyfriends, co-habitation is discussed and someone else posted that the girls have to get married to advance to the highest level. My 9 yo dd loves Style savvy because it's about fashion and owning a boutique, not boyfriend drama. We returned this game.
