    I thoroughly enjoyed playing Matches & Matrimony. I convinced my wife to try it also, and she enjoyed it and immediately started thinking of friends she wanted to recommend it to. My 11-year old daughter also enjoyed playing it, though the reading level was a bit over her head.

    My kids and I play a lot of video games, probably a couple hours each day. Most of the ones that we enjoy are either adventure games (same category as this), role-playing, or strategy. I'm concerned about how much violence and aggression is portrayed in the games my kids play, so I was very pleased to find one that was about building relationships instead of accumulating body counts,

    The attributes one improves in the game is a well-conceived list of social attributes rather than the oh-so-common strength/dexterity/intelligence/health/mana schemes that are so common in gaming. They include Willpower, [artistic] Talent, Wit, Kindness, Propriety, and Sensibility. Playing the game was like a refresher course (or for someone unfamiliar with the 19th century, it would be an introductory course) on the types of values that were emphasized in that age, including how their definitions differed from ours today.

    The part of the game that impressed me the most was the moral component. This is a game that will stretch you in positive ways, reminding you of what makes people like each other when they have good values and wholesome lifestyles, which is certainly what I hope my children will aspire to. I had a very positive experience when I was playing and trying to court Capt.

    Despite the subtitle "A Pride and Prejudice Tale", this game announces early on that it incorporates elements from "Sense and Sensibility" and "Persuasion" along with the main P&P plot. This is done in part by introducing characters from the other novels (Col. Brandon, Capt. Wentworth) and in part by making some P&P characters do double duty. Thus, Mr. Wickham is renamed "Mr. Wickeby", as he can function as Mr. Willoughby from S&S if you choose to pursue that path. Similarly, Lydia is now "Lydianne" and Mr. Bingley's first name has changed from Charles to Edward (as in Ferrars). You get to choose your character's first name, so you can play as "Evil Witch Bennet" if you like. The cast of characters from P&P has been reduced for simplicity, so don't expect to meet Mary and Kitty Bennet, the Gardiners, and several others.

    The game play combines elements of a resource management game (allocating your weekdays to various activities) and a choose-your-own adventure book. These combine because the activities change your character's stats, and some of the better choices are unavailable if a particular stat is too low (or, in one case, too high). When this happens, the game often lets you know through internal dialog along the lines of "If only I'd had more WIT, I could have said something more charming to Col. Fitzwilliam." (This example isn't from the game - I made it up to avoid spoilers.) That lets you know to go back to a saved point in the game and try to beef up your Wit, assuming you care about charming Col. Fitzwilliam. When you do make choices, in general (not always) you'll want to try getting along with others - but it may not be obvious which choice accomplishes this.

    This was quite a fun little game as you played through, attempting to find Mr. Right from a variety of options. In the meantime you spend your time earning skills like willpower, talent, propriety and kindness by visiting, going outside, studying the arts, etc. Your skill development will effect which men consider your character and hints are available to help you with the tougher ones, like Mr. Darcy.

    I generally consider the downloadable games on par with a paperback in terms of value, so I was happy that this kept me occupied for several evenings, eagerly chasing my chosen matrimonial victims (haven't played all the endings yet either). If you like games with lots of action and detailed scenery, this is not for you. But if you wouldn't mind a little old fashioned Victorian-style flirting (innocent and charming) and dialogue, it's quite fun.

    **Please note that this video game isn't for someone who is looking for great pictures/graphics. It's a role-playing game for Austen lovers! =)

    I purchased this game on a whim, as I had a coupon code for a few dollars off. I figured, "hey, I love Jane Austen books and video games, so why not?". I had SO much fun playing this game and was determined to figure out all the endings myself. My first few times I ended up with not so fabulous endings (marrying Mr. Collins, or ending up an old maid), but then I realized that, in order to get the endings I desired, I needed to respond or act like the appropriate Austen heroine, not myself (which, that fact that I would naturally end up with Mr. Collins or as an old maid, thoroughly shocked me and someone saddened me). It was a great way to put myself into the heroines' minds and to see if I could respond how they would respond. This game brought me hours of fun... I am just sad that I have finished all the endings so quickly (a few days of dedicated play time)!
