-(Added late May): They've redesigned and DIDN'T INCLUDE A MEMBER'S LOGIN LINK on the home page, so bookmark it from the start! And that's quite an oversight, no?
-Gallery pages too wide for 1024x768 screen resolution
-Thumbs show only half of each pic
-Only one pic size available for each gallery
-Inconsistent photo quality: quality glam, ‘shopped/glossed glam, grainy glam, amateurish/poor. So is lighting. And pose orientation, sometimes with 50% headroom or too far off to one side.
-Videos are mostly casual and amateur in style
-Videos vary greatly in length, ranging from 10 seconds to over an hour. Enough are 10+ minutes.
-A few vids are lower in quality
-Watermarks are a bit of a nuisance
-Clowning around by the girls is cute, but can get old
-“Nude” tag: Some of the girls NEVER take it all off. (Too much non-nude of Sarah Peachez)
||Fresh, exclusive content is presented here in myriad inconsistent and frustrating ways. With every click to a new gallery, you wonder.
It’s like this: How many thumbs will I have to enlarge to see what I think I’ll see? (What’s the point of thumbnails if not to show what’s in the entire image???) Will the next gallery be nude or non-nude? Will it have 1 page of pics, or 4? Will the lighting be OK, or will it be too dark? Will it be 150 watts ... 75 watts ... 40 watts depending on the picture? Is the model going to make a bunch of goofy faces?
And the videos? Well, it’s mostly of girls talking, often with men and/or other women. Sometimes there’s stripping. There’s not a whole heck of a lot of masturbation, nor girl/girl, nor boy/girl. The 2 hardcore vids of Kayden Love, with horrible lighting, color, and camera work, are entirely missable. And there’s one of Sarah Peachez just getting a “first-base” fondling by some guy.
You know how some sites can continue to draw you in? This one doesn’t. You have to force yourself to keep looking through more content to make sure you don’t miss anything that might actually be good.
There are many sites that charge around $30 bucks for a month (or less) that are better than this one, though along with the pros technically it does have some very nice and unique things to offer in content. There just wasn’t enough of them for the dough and all of the browsing time that had to be spent. The best stuff, I thought, was of Kayden Love, followed by Reanna Mae. At least there’s plenty here of those two. And they have nice asses! ;)
Bottom bottom line line: American Kittens has a lot of personality – more than a lot of really professional glam sites do – but it needs to standardize in key areas (nudity, for one) ... or come down in price.
