Summary: I love Sims games, but this one didn't do it for me especially on the DS. I was disappointed because the only part I enjoyed was to squish the bugs with my stylus. I would not recommend this game to Sim fans because it might change their opinion on Sims.
One of the Most Frustrating Games I've Ever Played
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.
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
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 !
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.
Not a bad game, I wouldn't recommend it to those of you who anger easily.

Excerpt: I really wanted a DS Lite for christmas so I went out and splashed a bit of dosh :P I bought a few games with it, Zelda:Phanthom Hourglass, Sims 2 Castaway, Pippa Funnels...something...And My Sims.
Summary: this game is rubbish 4 the DS but brilliant 4 the PSP. the graphics r better and u can do more things and everything is more realistic. my friend is addicted to it but i just cannot see why i like the PSP version only 2 much more.
