Summary: I'm very disappointed. I had this game for the wii and I bought it for my computer because I missed playing it, but it will not run on Windows 8 OS. Check your OS before buying it to make sure you actually get your money's worth.

Summary: I was not able to download this to my computer no matter what I tried. I have the right oprating system and everything but nothing works. This was a waste of my money. I have the game for PS2 so I play it there but it would be nice not to take up a T.V. to play.
Summary: This game was just okay. It was quite short to play in the story mode and not worth the money spent (I got a used copy for $15 plus the s&h). I had Sims Medieval and thought Castaway would be just as engaging but it is not. I was expecting multiple story lines/quests, but there is just the one plus a sandbox mode. Another negative is that in the story mode the build options are not available - apparently they are available only in sandbox mode.

Summary: ...you would be mistaken oh young seeker of knowledge. In some respects Castaway Stories has more depth than Sims 2. A major element is the exploring and discovery aspect of the game and really makes this a different game from Sims 2. Sims 2 is more about the development of the character and less about exploring and discovery, really almost non existent. Castaway stories is less about the character and more about exploring and discovery.
Summary: I wasn't to sure about having things laid out for me to play. I am a free form player, and spend a lot of my time building and decorating the homes. But it was a lot of fun to do! I liked the 'chapters' and got to do things that normally you wouldn't do in the other Sims games. I had no loading problems as some people stated. It flowed from each 'chapter' and screen very nicely. I recommend this game if you get bored playing free form.
Summary: Hi I ordered this game about 3 days ago and got in 2 days after my order! I got the disk scratch free and everything is in the case that I need in order to play! If you want more by Lisac195 go to half.com by ebay!!!!!
