YMMV / Style Savvy

  • Contested Sequel: Trendsetters is basically the same as the first game, but with updated graphics and a few added content. Usual complains are It's the Same, Now It Sucks and the lack of option for your character to romance anybody, despite the large number of male characters (although the Japanese version does have a patch that allows you to design a male character as you desire and take pictures with him on dates)
  • Even Better Sequel: Fashion Forward has been praised for this, having much more variety over the previous games.
  • Girl Show Ghetto: Is a rarely discussed Nintendo IP due to being a girly game about fashion, though it actually sells decently well. Many people even complained about a how "shovelware" game got onto the Wii U's Virtual Console instead of more "worthy" titles.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks: Main complaint about Trendsetters.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: The first game had a very awkward interface that forced the player to hold their DS vertically. Luckily, later games fixed this.
