Fun and Frustrating

this game was fun but there where a lot of times where i got stuck and had refer to a game walk through. Also towards the end there was a mission in at witch u had to rely on chance and it took several days worth of playing tell i got it. So I say this is a good game to bring on the family car trip but also you should click on FAQs and shorten it to save trees and ink because they are 50 pages worth.

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.
