If based strictly on gameplay, I'd rate this a 7 or 8, but this game has some bugs, so if you decide to play it, save often. You will play for hours at a time, and if you hit a bug, and can't continue, you'll have to start back at your last save point. So save often.
Also, the game lags. Load times on the PSP are slow to begin with, but this game, for some reason, seems to lag more than most.
There were several bugs, but the worst caused my PSP to shut down. It did not save, or hibernate, it just shut down. So when I restarted, I had to start over at my last save point, which was a few hours of play prior. Extremely frustrating to have to replay the same things over to get back to the point I was at. After experiencing this bug twice, I gave up on the game and returned it.
If you have other game consoles, you may want to play this game on them, rather than the PSP. Like I said, the game is fun, if not a little tedious, but the bugs make it unplayable in my opinion for the PSP.

This game has a horrible glitch. It seems almost random but when loading, the game will shut off. Tested other games, still works. I don't know if its EA or Sony but either way, if i can't play it, there's no put in buying it. Save your money, rent it. Hopefully you won't have the same problem i did.

Yes, a sims game revolving around being on an island, no you are not alone, you are able to create a crew of friends / family and have them on the island with you. There is a huge amount of lag in the game, but, it makes a good game if you can get over that, but also, you sim seems to get tired...Fast...Doing the most simple of task's such as, Eating a Banana -.-...Overall its a good rental...But if you want the real fun go play it on the PS2.
