Summary: I started with Villagers 3 and purchased 1 and 2 as a set to gain more background knowledge of the island. If you have an old computer (Vista or below) these are nice games. If you have Vista or above I recommend Villagers 3 or 4. More graphics, more projects. But really -- who designed their outfits?
Summary: When I installed the game my virus protection software kicked in and wanted to remove it. When contacted, tech support told me to contact my virus protection vendor because they didn't think the file actually contained a virus. I told them I really didn't have any interest in going back and forth between companies to see if I could get it to work and that I would like my money back. Amazon graciously complied and refunded my money - which I appreciate.
Summary: If you liked virtual villager 1 you will love virtual villager 2. Much is the same as 1 but with some added twist. You start out with 2 adults and 5 kids so its slow starting but once it gets rolling the fun never stops.
