  • Summary: On my all-time favorite list for unique game play as you train your characters and they uncover the mysteries. Hard to stop playing this game. A must buy!

  • Summary: I am not a fan of these type of games because they have annoying interfaces and are too never-ending, though I do appreciate open storyline, I do not have the patience for these games. This one hooked me up completely. The theme is refreshing- it;s no longer deserted island but a deserted artistic centre with a story behind it. Youi start off with two guys and then gradually more come. They are never random guys though because this game is strongly plot driven.

  • Summary: I tried this because I loved 'Buried in Time' so much. Perhaps I would rate Artist Colony higher if I wasn't comparing the two - but I don't think so. It just seems boring and pointless. Cleaning up trash is not my idea of a good time and there doesn't seem to be much story. I personally have never liked the Build-A-Lot type of game which this vaguely resembles. Guess I'm just not a real estate type. The mechanics and navigation are vastly inferior to Buried.

  • Summary: I really enjoyed playing this game. It reminds me of "Buried in Time" but this version to me seems a bit easier. There isn't so much you have to do in order to level up. A bot too hard for my kiddos, but that's ok, that means I don't have to share!

  • Summary: It's like a lite version of The Sims. When you level up your charcters job skills, they will refuse to work if they're sleepy, hungry, or depressed. Pros: If you have ADD/ADHD & can't stay focused on any one thing & a good at multitasking, then this game will keep you entertained. The graphics are very pleasent & they change with the 4 seasons.

  • Summary: Good storyline, fun gameplay. You do reach a point where you've pretty much done everything and you will want to give up, but then at the same time you want to officially finish. Still, it's fun for many hours (or a few days) of compelling gameplay. While I wouldn't play this again right away, I know a few months from now, it might appeal to me. If you like these colony types of games, this one is original and cute (and no, your characters don't die off in this one lol).

  • Summary: I liked the story to this game at first, though the actual achievements can feel a bit tedious to accomplish, I am however disappointed with the ending of the story itself. The graphics were nice and the characters interesting, it's just a long game really.

  • Summary: I was initially charmed by the pretty graphics but, after only a couple hours, I started being utterly bored when I realized "that's" all there was to it. The game is incredibly repetitive, doesn't have much depth at all, and quickly became tedious for me. And it has zero replay value.

  • Summary: Good, but not amazing. If I had reviewed this about 50% into the game instead of after beating it, this would have gotten 4 stars from me. I was fairly new to the tribe-like genre when I first got Artist Colony, and even after playing Gemini Lost, Virtual Villagers, etc., it held its own pretty well. The title "Artist Colony" made me expect some sort of weird hippie drum circle game, but it was more like relaxed sim management.
