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.

This game is very entertaining. I love it. It is challenging yet not too challenging where you would get stuck and give up. HOURS and HOURS and HOURS of game play in this little game. Not a game that you play for a few and get bored. I look forward to playing many other EA Sims games. Very good. The graphics are pretty darn good for how much they pack in it. Nice.

The Sims 2 Castaway, while not a perfect game, is actually a pretty good game for the DS, featuring all the same feeling as the Sims with a little more focus on story and environment. Washed up on a tropical island, it's up to you to keep yourself as happy as possible while trying to find some way off. There are similarities and differences one may notice, obviously being less about interior decorating and more about exploration than other Sims titles. A lot less characters to interact with, too. There's still plenty of fun to be had, though, as you look for items to build tools like an ax to cut through vines blocking your way, or a chisel to make a small log boat. The only problem is that the game is a little lacking in stuff to do once you've completed it. You can try to get the rest of the items to complete your "collection", but it doesn't feel like something you really have a big urge to do. Still, as a small little pick up and play title, Sims 2 Castaway is actually pretty fun, and worth at least trying.
