  1. With plenty of new tasks to accomplish, people to find, and lands to explore, there is little more you could ask for in terms of content.
  2. A pleasant enough diversion that’s unlikely to hold the attention for any great length of time. It’s fun enough while it lasts, though.
  3. Even though the Wii controls work extremely well, you'll spend most of the game mashing the Z button to harvest every stick, stone, and pineapple you see. [Nov 2007, p.148]
  4. One game-breaking aspect of The Sims 2 Castaway is the load screens. The loading times are much too long and occurs much too often.

Instead of wandering aimlessly in a house, in an open free world, or in a neighbourhood, you are working toward something. And with that their are mysteries to be uncovered. Minus the loading screens, this is a really great game. Full Review »

    I can't believe I bought this...I think the visuals are ugly, completely last gen, the sound is okay but in no way great, and the I can't believe I bought this...I think the visuals are ugly, completely last gen, the sound is okay but in no way great, and the gameplay...is mostly boring. you just gather, gather, gather...and the zones arent big enough, too many load times...another unecessary sims game on the consoles. This series has seriously gone down the tank. Full Review »
