First impressions based on the previewed content:
- I hate to be a downer about this, but... none of this seems to go together? The flooring goes with the second appliance, the sofa maybe goes with the chairs, but the rest of it all seems very disjoint. Clearly, it's meant to be under the umbrella of Valentine's Day, what with all the hearts, but the content as a whole doesn't come together as one set.
I don't think that's necessarily bad, if the items from this goal can supplement others that were on the market before. However, for all their versatility, I also think items in any goal should be able to stand as a complete set, and I don't see that here.
- The goal prizes seem paltry for Valentine's Day. I really like the giant chocolate box in the Ode to Love display, but a sofa and dance floor seem rather generic and not Valentine's-centric at all - case in point, we had a sofa for a goal prize in just the last goal set. Again, not necessarily a bad thing in regards to versatility but: is it really worth working towards as a goal prize (specifically, a goal themed around Valentine's Day) if it's so generic?
These are the only floor decorations we're getting in the game anymore, and this is the highest degree of creativity to which the devs can come up to, for Valentine's Day?
I feel like the theme could have been explored with a variety of other floor decorations - a customer presenting their significant other with a bouquet of flowers; a couple walking hand-in-hand with smiles on their faces; even two people sitting on the very sofa that shipped with this goal, or a singleton clutching the pillow - but that was explored neither here nor with the also-Valentine's-themed monthly box, and it's disappointing.
- This comes from my cynicism of 5-day goals, but: there are at least two recipes here (the Ras-Heart Tart and the Rasbrownie) that could've made wonderful additions to the Chocolate Raspberry appliance had they debuted in a 5-day goal with that as an appliance. Seeing as how these two recipes are now present, but not on that appliance, I've lost hope for the Chocolate Raspberry altogether and am resigning myself to see something completely unrelated on it when it inevitably comes into the 5-day goal fold, like Chili Popcorn. I wish I could be less sarcastic about this.
