The game had an incredible story to go along with it, and you learned to survive. But it was very annoying how you had to constantly fill your needs at the same time.
Summary: This was a fun game until I finished helping the castaways. After that it became pointless because I could escape the island. After helping the castaways, the only reason to stay on the island is to finish your collections, which is pretty boring.
