Kitty Powers Matchmaker has a wonderful kitsch charm to it, delightfully self-aware and witty. It does start to show its limitations after extended play, but overall it is great fun and pretty much nails the awful dating experience.

Believe it or not, dating simulators are not the highest forms of entertainment. Despite this, they do have their place as those weird ass games that some people get way too invested in. They are similar to sports games, in that respect. Those sorts of people will find some enjoyment in Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker, as it is a perfectly acceptable one of those games. That being said, if you want a dating sim to get a lot of traction, you need to go full on with the silly features. More ridiculous farting mini-games, less “trendy” dialogue… these are the recipes for success. While you get glimpses of the intentional stupidity this kind of game needs in order to succeed, you do not see it often enough for it to work.

Funny as the dialogue is, it will get old with the passage of time. But, while it lasts, Kitty Powers' Matchmaker is a great time killer that is oddly addicting.

Kitty Powers' Matchmaker is a frequently enjoyable dating sim that nails its charmingly campy tone while providing a refreshing change of pace for those who fancy making love not war. It comes close to being a keeper, but the high cost of this version over its mobile counterparts, and a gameplay loop that struggles to keep it up for more than a couple of hours, means that Kitty Powers' Matchmaker just isn't quite relationship material.

Kitty Powers' Matchmaker is a cute and inclusive dating simulator that does a great job of normalising love, regardless of gender, sexuality or appearance.

Is Matchmaker life-changing? No. Is it action-packed and as gripping as Breath of the Wild? Certainly not. It is, however, a fun little time-waster, full of memory puzzles, personality assessment and inclusiveness.

Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker falls under the umbrella of casual game, and that’s where its value inherently lies.

The joy of the game comes from Kitty Powers herself. Her hilarious and sparkling personality is enough to keep you engaged at least for a few hours.

I have to say for a dating simulator I was rather surprised how addictive it was at least for a short while. Kitty Powers' Matchmaker is different from mostly anything else I've played on PlayStation 4. It's got charm, humor, fun, love, but just doesn't have that long lasting relationship material in it.

Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker is a quirky, light-hearted game that has transitioned well from mobile to console. I do feel it's better suited to being a mobile game, but this doesn't detract too much from the experience of playing the game on a console. The nice visuals, great humour and quirky gameplay all add up to create a supremely enjoyable game.
