Even though there's some repetition, there are plenty of twists and new activities to make you want to help characters find their soulmate. The core of Kitty Powers' Love Life remains to grow your matchmaking empire under the watchful eye of the stylish Kitty Powers, but the town sim aspect provides a whole new level of fun and complexity. To begin with, instead of simply matching couples, you now have to manage all manner of relationships. Your couples have neighbors and friends to contend with, and their happiness levels vary depending on how they get on with those people. You're juggling not only the concerns of fledgling couples still getting to know one another, but also each individual's personal needs. Are they happy at work? Are they bored at home? Does their partner understand them? Do they long to share a secret yearning with someone else aside from their partner?
It's up to you to help them become their best selves, even if it means their relationships go down the tubes. The whole thing's pretty tricky, but the mini-games by which you do it keep things entertaining. Well, mostly. Even with a fast-forward button, things can get repetitive and progress pretty slowly, and you might find yourself wishing your clients were a tad less needy. On top of that, parents could take issue with the game's saucy language (talk of nude dancing, for instance), crude jokes (talk of boogers and farts), and scenes set within a bar. Still, even with those concerns, Kitty Powers' Love Life is a smart, funny relationship/town sim that's sure to keep aspiring matchmakers engrossed for hours.
