Summary: 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. The first thing you should do is find food, there are bushes with berries, shellfish on the beach and various fruits dropping from trees. As you explore you will be able to collect rocks, sticks etc to build a decent shelter and other buildings.
Pros: New scenario
Cons: Small map, minimal interaction with characters, finished with characters storylines = nothing to do
The Sims 2: Castaway (DS): It's all you need... For a headache
15 May 2008
Summary: 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. First I tried out Sim 2, naturally and from almost the first half hour of playing it I got hopelessly lost, stuck and frustrated and ended up leaving it aside for 2 months before trying to tackle it again.
Pros: Graphics were O.K and the plot was quite good.
Cons: The gradual process took too long and the ending was shabby and slap-dash
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.
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!!!
