"And yet, this is racier than The Sims, even considering Hot
Date. See, The Partners (which is set in a law firm) requires naughty
shenanigans hence the pun in the title. Each Partner to remain happy
requires a certain amount of career work and relaxation time, among others, but
there are also meters for love, domination (that is, how much of a control
freak the Partner is) and lust. Happiness is key, too, because its a
large factor when arguing lawsuits which bring cash and prestige to the firm:
The higher a Partners Happiness, the better chance of winning the

"The Partners presents with fine 3D graphics, much
like those of The Sims series, both in its character depiction and animations.
The interface is unobtrusive and efficient, allowing, unlike The Sims, rotation
within your office areas and a very nice zooming feature using the mouse wheel,
if available. Little pop-up menus allow the purchase of 100 pieces of furniture
and 70 objects (such as a chocolate rabbit, bottle of beer, and game console),
all designed to make the "work" of your lawyers more efficient and often their
interactions more lively and saucy! Hundreds of independent and interactive
actions can be performed."
"Behaving very much like an R-rated Sims expansion pack but
independent of that series, The Partners is a silly and entertaining piece of
gameplay fluff. There's no adventure here, none of the character building of
RPGs, no real-time or turn-based strategies. Rather, much like the Ally McBeal
series, The Partners aims to be a distraction from your more "serious" gaming
and give you a few laughs. To that end, the game largely succeeds quite well.
An effective tutorial gets you up and running, and from the included 21
missions in three campaigns to the enjoyable sandbox mode, The Partners is easy
to get into and enjoy. I heartily recommend it..."
