Not worth it.

  • Summary: This game is alright at first, but it looses its appeal very quickly! The graphics are horrible and it doesnt really have those same elements like a sims game normally has. If your looking for a game thats the same type of game as castaway, get Lost in blue2. Better graphics, better gameplay and everything.

A Disappointment

  • Summary: Trying to survive on a deserted tropical island... Sounds cool, right? Yeah. That's what I thought, too. But it turns out it's not cool at all. Far from cool. The Sims 2: Castaway was pretty fun at first. (Though I've found that ALL video games are fun the first time you play them.) I played the game for a couple of days and had at least a little bit of fun with it. But soon, as I progressed in the game, it became too hard for me. Ridiculously hard, in fact.

Hmm.. Wasn't worth the money.

  • Summary: When I bought it, I looked at it thinking "This seems fun!". It wasn't as great as I thought. There isn't much to do, it's a pain to keep your sim happy, and just overall gameplay sucks. Not a very good storyline, and I wasted about 4-6 hours of my life on it.

SO DULL!

  • Summary: I started playing and got bored on the very first day and that's saying something! I can normally show real interest in a game for at least a day but this got old immediately and I seriously almost fell asleep playing! The days are repetetive and you can never do anything within a real amount of time. Besides that, there are next to no options! You get food. You eat. You walk around. You go to bed.

One of the Most Frustrating Games I've Ever Played

  • 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. I spend all my time now hunting one particular kind of fish so I can progress through the game. It's been three days and I still have not caught the stupid fish.

  • 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. if u want to take the risk then fine bt on the other games consoles u wil enjoy it lots more.

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. I'm sure true SIMS fans will love the game but not for me - I like things to be clear!!!
