Fun if you like adventure AND sim games, not great

If games like Harvest Moon make you go "Uhh... This barely qualifies as a game." and the adventure genre as a whole makes you go to sleep, then there is no way you will like this game.
I actually really do like it. I've grown bored of Harvest Moon games but this one is fun because it's much more directed. Basically, you're on a desert island and everything is your responsibility - You are the only person who save your own life. Your life, and that of your partner.
I never played the first game, but I understand that it's mostly the same; Except now, you don't have to play as the guy, and the woman is just as capable. They have minor differences, but that doesn't make it fun to play twice.
A lot of this game will be spent collecting food and water. After that, if you want, you'll upgrade your living conditions (All you need to make a jerky shelf is lots of tree vines and logs, of course!) Finally, and this is the adventure part of the game, you'll explore and find a way off the island yourself. There are quite a few ways, and they all take a bit of thinking.
One of the best parts of the game is the relationship with your partner. Unlike Harvest Moon characters, her relationship with you is rather complex, and depends on many factors. It really does feel like you two are growing closer together as the game goes on.
If this idea intrigues you, you'll like the game. If not, skip it.
I rented this because it looked like it had potential to be a really good game. However the game is slow paced and simply not that intresting and really tedious. Yeah its sort of intresting to survive on your own but its just not as fun as it should be. Seriously don't waste your time with game
Ah yes lost in the blue 2, it sounds nice to fans of the first but you may as well just play that one again. The same problems that the first lost in the blue had are just the same in this one. Instead of making the game more interesting they just gave you new characters. You will find yourself gathering food all day just so you can go to sleep on a full stomach and wake up hungry. The game becomes more of a chore then anything you could call fun. That being said if you are new to the game it will provide mild entertainment, for those looking for the sequal no such luck
