Great Game, but...

KK, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is awesome, everything I was expecting, but I think the WII version was more challenging and more interactive. In the WII version you can choose your location of your home, choose where you hunt, fish, harvest, etc. In this game, well, it's a game. Like a platform version where every detail of your castaway journey is already mapped out for you and you just follow the bread crumbs to the end. There is only one way of playing and it's kind of repetitive.

Cool!

  • Summary: This game is really fun. There's always something to do whether you need to find food, make new objects and clothing, and overall exploring the island. I was addicted to this game when I got it. I've had it for a few months and i still have'nt completed the game or gotten bored of it. Some games i've gotten for my ds were too easy and i'd be done in a few days, but the sims 2 castaway keeps you busy. I've also had the sims 2 apartment pets and got bored pretty quickly.

One of my favorite ds games

Lynn B. Bigelow "LadyGamer", Amazon

  • Summary: I've played through this game twice, the second time to see if I could get 100% and that makes it even more fun to find all the items. Now I'm playing through as a male so I can see the different clothes. It's a relaxing game for me. It's much easier keeping your bars up the second time around because by then you know how and what works best.

Fun game for an adult

JB "jb6606", Amazon
6 May 2009
  • Summary: I was a bit skeptical after reading the review by the person who said that s/he finished this game in a day or two. I found this game to be somewhat addicting, and it definitely took me longer than a day or two to complete. I'm an adult, I don't play video games all day, and it took me a few weeks to do all the tasks required to get off the island.

A terrific Nintendo DS game!

  • Summary: Purchased for my daughter for her birthday, The Sims 2: Castaway has been hours of fun for her. The complexity of the Sims game means it doesn't get old. This game is better for older kids, as it requires strategy and persistence to raise your level and do well at the game. A wonderful game!

Nice and Different

Mandi, Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: I received this game recently, as my first Sims game on DS, and it's a nice change from the previous portable Sims games, concept wise. You're stranded on an island and have a series of tasks to complete to get off. Now, it's not like previous games where the tasks are so cut and dry that they're literally written out for you. You have to really explore and think critically about what you're doing to move ahead.

Glad the SIMS have come to the DS platform!

Amy R. Balenzano "AmyRMB", Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: I've been playing the various computer type of SIMS from the beginning- and I have pretty much every expansion pack for the games too. I'm SO GLAD it's finally come out with a DS version- it's worth the $[...]. You uncover other "castaways" on the island and establish friendships with them. You boost your social by keeping in touch with them- and you can also trade with them for things you need. Exploring the island you find various fruits and veggies.

Sims 2 With A Twist

Stephanie E. Sinkhorn "stephy442", Amazon
5 November 2007
  • Summary: This is definitely a great addition to the Sims line, and the DS system makes the gameplay interactive and fun. The first time I played, I couldn't put it down. I always had to find something new, or get to the next puzzle, or figure out how to help my fellow Sims. My favorite part about this game is that it's not your typical Sims 2... there are no careers to choose or Simeleons to earn.
