One of the Most Frustrating Games I've Ever Played

Diane "missd1975", Amazon
22 January 2008
  • Summary: I too am a big fan of the Sims franchise, and had a blast playing the (highly addictive) Sims 2 for the DS. But I am ready to throw Castaway into the sea. While a cool concept and fun to get started on, it becomes very frustrating very quickly.

  • Excerpt: I haven't played many Sims games before apart from Sims 2 but I've only managed to get so far within the game so Castaway was a completely new game for me. I keep hearing people saying they love Sims so I thought I should try them out too.
  • Pros: Good Game
  • Cons: Difficult Controls

19 July 2009
  • Excerpt: I have really enjoyed the Sims games in the past. Disappointed that my computer is not compatible with Sims 3 due to my display card not being up to the requirements I decided to play castaway. In the game my sims character is stranded on an island and has to find a way to get off it.
  • Pros: Many different activities to do to survive and become self efficient
  • Cons: Disappointing, easy to become bored of

  • Excerpt: I imagine by now everyone has heard of The Sims, the hugely popular game from EA games. The PC game and it's many expansions are a huge success, and it's only a couple of months to go until The Sims 3 is released (I have mine pre-ordered!
  • Pros: An addicting little game !
  • Cons: Not as good as the Sims, but they've made a good game here !

SIMS 2 DS Poor!

  • Excerpt: My experience of the Sims 2 Castaway is that of disappointment. The game is not as good quality as any of the other sims games on other Platforms and does not advertise the Sims in a good light. Compared to Sims CastAway PSP is amazing quality with alot more interactivity. It does not appeal to me.
  • Pros: Younger users Would find this Appealing
  • Cons: Not for Dedicated members of the Sims - Sims2

Not worth the price. It's not absolutely awful, just disappointing

  • Excerpt: I've played the Sims on PC so when this was released for the DS I figured why not? I wasn't disappointed, at least not for quite some time. You wash up on an island with only the clothes you're wearing.

Good, but only until you get stuck!

  • Conclusion: As previous reviews have said it's a great game until you don't know what to do next. I played this every night for about 2 weeks and then haven't played it since as there was nothing new to do and I got bored of just walking around the island.
