Summary: I am a fan of survival games and have been since I first played lost in blue. However, when i played this game, i found myself laughing out loud every time my sim ate a poison plant or talked to a monkey. This is not your average survival game. It's more humorous.
Summary: Let me tell you straight off the bat, if you want a sims game for the PSP, get this one. It almost seems like this game was made for the console. Pros, You can spend hours playing it (like most sims games) It actually has a story to it. You always know what you need to do Its better than the sum of its parts Cons, Graphics are less than impressive With cheats you can easily beat it in an hour spending time gathering food and skill points is time consuming and boring.
Summary: This game is completely addictive and really good fun. Sometimes the camera can be a little frustrating and you definitely have to take advantage of the fastforward feature but overall it's a good game to just wander leisurely through.
Summary: This is a game that you have to keep coming back to. You have to complete goals and build things. You can't have babies or kiss, so it is a bit watered down from the originals. Good game overall.
Extremely fun to play, but load times stagnant a bit...

Summary: As I am already a fan of SIMS 2, Castaway really puts a new twist on my favorite game. I really love having goals and missions to accomplish and new territory to discover. The only negative is the sleeping, it can go a bit faster considering you can start a fire and cook in mere seconds. We shouldnt have to wait in real time for what we know takes forever. Also, after the game gets heated up a bit some technical goofy stuff starts happening.
Summary: Ok, I love the sims series, and I almost had a heart attack when I saw this one. I think it's great, a whole lot of fun, and unlike the other sims, this one will keep you busy for a while, because it's going to take a while to figure out all the tricks of the island. However, it's difficult to switch between characters. I find myself just playing the one, because it's easier. Buy, overall totally worth it. Whole lot of fun!
Summary: This game has many pros, but also some cons and its difficult to explain all of them. But the main disappointment of this game is that i did get bored of it after the first 2 weeks of having it, and this is why - it is a bit slow. Changing from one area of the island to another is frustrating because it takes so long, and you have to go in the jungle alot to collect things. Also, mine did freeze once and i had to quit and loose everything!
Excerpt: "...been a huge fan of The Sims, so when I heard about this game I knew that I just HAD to have it. The goals make the game more interesting, and I loved the fact that you could make things like tools, homes and clothing out of resources which you gather from the islands - but sometimes it can get rather frustrating when you can't find the object that you want, or you have to go really far away to get it. Although the game sometimes can take time to load ...
Pros: Great fun, good graphics, clear instructions, not easy but not too hard either .
Cons: Is sometimes slow and can take a while to load .
