I've played some sim dates in my day *old man talk*
And I must say... hmmm.. the quality is good, the art is very, very good... but the dialog.. well, at least with Xan, who was my #1 target and the only one I talked to this first round..
The dialogs are weird and akward, to be honest. Most of the time the characters don't properly respond to the right/wrong answers you give them. It's always the same, and it puts you out of the feeling of the game. You know you are just playing a game. And even the choise of answers that is right are weird.
Xan ask me how I look so good, I say I like sports, Xan frowns and I lost 10 hp. Xan ask me how I look so good, I say it's natural(like a douche), Xan smiles and I won 10 affection points...WTH?! and he dosen't even tell me why he dosen't like what I say! he's just "I see..."
I dunno if it's the same with the girls, because if not.. you clearley didn't take much effort on Xan :(
A good sim dating game are suppose to make you feel for the character and absolutley fall for him/her while you are playing.
I didn't feel that while playing this :(
and I think that is the most important part of a sim game, apperance comes second.
So think about that next time, and you will make something amazingly superior^^
(ps. something's f*cked up with my computer and I can't rate properly, sorry)
