    While intriguing, the game is never captivating. [June 2007, p.94]
  2. The movement controls are very slippery and awkward, you spend most of your time in mundane conversation trees and playing the same mini-games relentlessly, and the reward at the end of the year isn't particularly satisfying.

    The real problem with Brooktown, though, is that your progress seems totally scripted, requiring no actual effort or skill.
  4. Less an adolescent social simulation and more a lesson in pandering, Brooktown High fails to make the grade.
  5. 40
    It's disappointing, it really is.

    I really wanted to like you, Brooktown. I mean, like like. But the problem of shallow, unrealistic gameplay and an unreasonable time limit scheme just is too overbearing.

    Brooktown High is poor by design and though the concept running it may be admirable the execution is not. Bad conversation, lackluster mini-games, pointless statistics, and a below average presentation don't necessarily help the dating sim genre make headway in America.
  8. 30
    Playing Brooktown High, you can't really ever lose, but with so little content to explore and so little reward, you can't really win either.
  9. The whole concept of Brooktown High is appealing, but what the developer Backbone Entertainment has done is given us the most boring and lifeless look at high school life imaginable.
  10. With better pacing, some deeper activities to partake in and a more finely tuned interaction system Brooktown High could have been a lot of fun.
