Cool, confident, and charming, New Style Boutique 2 is a knockout. If you're at all into fashion, this is a must-play, and even if you're not it's well worth dropping in to check out everything Beaumonde City has to offer - this is a deep, engaging sim with the looks, brains and fun to entertain just about anyone.
Style Savvy: Fashion Forward has the light touch that one would hope for in a lifestyle simulator. Even more fascinating is that it's not targeted at a 20-something like myself, but the game's attitude makes it feel accessible for all audiences. It's coherent, well-composed, and actually interested in fashion. Although it's not my typical venue, it's easy to imagine that those looking to relax and find their style will be able to dig very deep in Fashion Forward.
New Style Boutique - Fashion Forward is very well designed to its target audience and it's perfectly accessible to pick up and play. Everything in this game is done fluidly and despite a certain level of repetition, the players bound to be allured by this New Style Boutique will find plenty of reasons to dedicate themselves to this experience of fashion management.
New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward hasn't revolutionized the genre since the last game, but the new activities are welcome and the game is very easy for the casual audience it targets. For the most seasoned player it will feel very repetitive.
If Style Savvy: Fashion Forward is the franchise's last hurrah, it certainly doesn't go out on a low note as it has the best fashion and is filled to the brim with stuff to do. But readjusting to a real time clock means changing the way I enjoy this series, and without the addictive draw of a short day and night cycle, I don't see this game taking dozens of hours of my time as past entries have done.
