As a long time Sim fan, I can honestly say this game is very challenging. A lot of people get turned off to the Sims and say it just isn't their thing, but this is not the usual role playing or virtual-type-people game. This game actually has you achieving various goals and quests. And the cool thing with it on the DS, is there are NO cheats (at least not at the time I played it).
I've played Castaway on the PS2 and the computer; and this is the best version I have played. This is also the most challenging Sims I have played yet. If you like a good challenge, this game is for you. My ten year old also enjoyed playing this game too!! So it IS kid friendly!!

I absolutely fell in love with this game. This is a must have for any Sim user. I will purchase the game as soon as I can afford it. Until then, I'll try all the rest of the ds games.

Simple, Quick Gameplay; Rent, Don't Buy.

"The Sims 2: Castaway" is a perfect example of why I signed up with Gamefly: to try out games on which I didn't want to plunk down $25-$50.

This game is relatively easy and extremely quick, and offers some replay value but not enough to warrant a purchase.

Some traditional Sims elements are retained, with the six bars and interactions with people and objects, but for the most part it's pretty linear based on its relatively simple storyline.

Much of the game is based on luck, on what you find on the island and how you can use it; this results in much of the game becoming annoying and repetitive.

Overall I enjoyed the Sims: Castaway experience, but you can finish the game in a day or two and then move on to something more rewarding.
