The Sims 2: Castaway Review

GameSpot
26 October 2008
  • Excerpt: It might not have been clear back in 2000 that The Sims would become the best-selling, multiplatform phenomenon it is today. But the series' unusual formula--which let you control the lives of little computer people as they ate, slept, found work, and formed relationships with other little computer people--launched a lengthy series of games on both the PC and consoles.
  • Pros: Open-ended gameplay offers leisurely experience, Decent variety of different tasks to accomplish, All-new graphics and sound, Monkey butlers
  • Cons: PS2 version suffers from randomly long load times and occasional lockups, You do have to spend a good chunk of time gathering resources

  • Excerpt: Electronic Arts' new Sims Stories brand kicks off with The Sims 2 Castaway. In a nutshell, the game brings EA's unstoppably lovable franchise to a desert island. Think Lost without people wanting to kill you and smokey monsters. Think Survivor without annoying presenters. Think... well, think The Sims on a desert island.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: As a budget-release expansion pack, Sims 2: Castaway may have worked. As a full-price console game, it's an insult to the millions of Sims fans across the globe. Will Wright must be turning in his grave. Not that he's dead. But it's bad enough it may well kill him if he plays it.

The Sims 2: Castaway PS2 Review

DarkZero

  • Excerpt: April 4th 2000 “ Wilson! I’m sorry, Wilson ,” those where the last words I heard as I floated away from Chuck yesterday. He could not save me, and I could hear the pain in his voice. He did all the paddling, but I wish I just hung on better. That was the last I ever heard from him. I don’t know where he is anymore, but hopefully he got home safe.

  • Summary: větší obrázek Zdroj: Hratelně.cz 00:00 | 26.10.2007 | Alžběta Trojanová Simové ztroskotali na pustém ostrově. Co si počnou? The Sims je prostě tak populární série, že autoři už pomalu nevědí co by. Máme tak verze, kde si užíváme divokých večírků, studujeme, jezdíme na dovolené či se staráme o domácí zvířátka. Zdálo by se, že tvůrci snad vyčerpali téměř všechny životní situace, a tak přešli do poněkud absurdnějších reálií.
  • Pros: Získávání surovin a výroba nutných předmětů, postupný vývoj a vůbec sama myšlenka toho, že jste na opuštěném ostrově, šimpanzové.
  • Cons: Grafika, nesmyslný počet a doba načítání mezi lokacemi.

Ve høe The Sims 2: Castaway se totiž stanete troseèníky na tropickém ostrovì, èímž se váš život rapidnì zmìní. Postarejte se o obydlí, o potravu, o obleèení apod. ...

The Sims 2: Castaway

12 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Eftersom spelet är till Wii sker det mesta genom pekande och precis som jag tidigare konstaterat i recensionen av Sims 2: Pets fungerar det oväntat bra och smidigt med wiimoten. Det jag ibland kan sakna är en riktigt bra överblick och ibland kan det även vara svårt att träffa rätt när man pekar.
  • Pros: Unikt och det uppdragsbaserade systemet fungerar bra., Varierat och roligt. Mycket att upptäcka och bygga, räcker länge om man har orken.
  • Cons: Oprecist ibland, svagt grafiskt., Även fast det utspelar sig på en tropisk ö är det inte så vackert man skulle kunna hoppas.

De Sims 2: Op een onbewoond eiland

20 November 2007
  • Conclusion: De Sims 2: Op een Onbewoond Eiland is niet de beste game uit de reeks. Enkele technische onvolmaaktheden en een vrij repititieve gameplay fnuiken het plezier, maar de talloze Sims-fanaten ter wereld zullen zich er ongetwijfeld weer vol overgave op storten. Alleen als jij tot die groep hoort, kan ik je dit spel aanraden.
  • Pros: Heel veel voorwerpen, Groot eiland om te ontdekken
  • Cons: Heel veel laadtijden, Matige graphics, Repetitief
