Hi. I’ve played about 4 decades of Kudos 2 so far. It is a lot of fun. I love, love sim games like this. What I don’t like is that the romance element is very abbreviated. I mean, I finally snag a boyfriend and then… He seldom calls for a date (like almost never) and then grumps that we’re not seeing enough of each other! He called me “princess” once and I got all melty and I wished the relationship could go on to a deeper level. Plus I have to pay for all the romantic events. He never offers. I would much like the romance element to be more developed, even up to engagement and marriage and…kids? hmmm, maybe not. ^^
I also wish players could change their clothes at least according to the seasons and that clothes could be purchased during the game to dress in. I think it would be cool for my character to suddenly change into a swimsuit when she goes swimming or a winter outfit when going to snowball fights or ice skating–just two examples. It’s just kinda gross to wear the same clothes day in, day out for ten years! Another idea would be to have more employment fields available.
Anyways, I love the game and am looking forward to later editions. Oh yeah, the music is awesome too.
