I was surprised by how much I liked this game. As a matchmaker set to return love to a town bereft of it for 20 years is starts off a little like a Harlequin novel, but you get hooked first off by the graphics which are very nice. The hidden object portion of the game is good as some items easily found, others, not so much. There are scenes within scenes, and at least one little mini game within the HO you play to get an item. None of these are terribly difficult and so varied it was fun to find and play them. The storyline is unique and it was fun to see who would end up with whom in the matchmaking part of the game. Setting up the date scene for the people is where it got a little clicky as it was difficult at times to put things where they belonged, especially the garland in the very last scene. Gameplay was a good length and if you care to replay it you can send the couples off to a different date than the one you chose before. The hint system is good, and you have a map if needed, which is always nice, though not needed for the most part. All in all I really enjoyed playing it, and would recommend it to HO players wanting a break from the "dark" storylines often associated with the genre. Brainiac players seeking a frustratingly difficult challenge will not care for it though, play this one for enjoyment, not challenge.
