castaway is fun and humorous but it has too many technical details. the curser doesn't always work right and the frame-rate is horrible. but if you are a sims an then its worth renting and play through. if your new to the sims pick up a different sims too start with.
Castaway was a game that has lots of potential from the sims series. The only things i did not like was the constant repitition of many things and the poor inability to make successful relationships when you wanted to. I kept getting rejected. The controls are still a work in progress. Its not a game i would own but a game a person can enjoy for a week but gets real old once you beat it. Im a believer in the sims series so im sure they will keep the games coming.
