To properly review Teen Style Stuff we decided to recreate our own teenage life. Enter my father-figure Pope John Paul II, a chubby-faced Viking-helmet wearing Lothario with his face painted to look like a tiger. His turn-ons include stinkiness. Turn-offs? Fat chicks. It’ll be his job to mould us into a fine young teenager.

And here’s us, a 15 year-old girl with everything to prove and nothing to lose. The sliders won’t recreate our true body weight, instead restricting us to the anorexic standards EA expects all young girls to adhere to.
