  • Summary: Singles ? Flirt up your Life is the simulation of the exciting relationship between Mike and Linda. The game shows them in their shared flat, which means that everyday routines are focused as well: Cooking, watching TV and cleaning are as important as talks and a cuddle. And of course the two have to work for a living as well ... Enjoy playing Cupid! [Deep Silver] Expand

  1. If there is one thing that Singles does absolutely right is the visuals, which are excellent.
  2. A unique but somewhat shallow approach to the complicated scenarios of establishing a relationship or simply nailing your roommate. It’s a bit predictable since there are firm rules in place and you have instant access to the results of your efforts.
  3. Singles is fun and addictive to play at first, and the idea of a relationship sim is something a little new, but the novelty wears off and as soon as you’ve done it once, you’ve done it all. To sum it all up, Singles isn't a life sim - it's a reasonable relationship sim with no frills.
  4. In the end, it works fairly well. Unfortunately, once you get the hang of "making" relationships, there is no reason to keep playing. If you are a diehard sims fan looking for something to tide you over until the sequel is released, you may want to give this a try.
  5. Yes, there is groping, discrete heavy petting, and conveniently concealed canoodling, but it's all rendered in fewer than 10 different animations...which get old quickly. [Sept 2004, p.68]
  6. There's little imagination, little independence inside their tiny minds and this makes looking after them a joyless activity. Micromanagement leaves no time for voyeurism.
  7. It's pretty graphic in its representation of sex, and it's about as fun and interesting as watching your cat lick itself.
