    Offers an addictively eclectic mix of item collecting, gambling, and relationship building; tantalizing eye candy; and one outstanding game of volleyball.
  2. I never thought watching could be so engulfing. These models are truly extraordinary. The breasts are wonderful (along with teh shoulders, thighs, faces...) of course, but do you have any idea how difficult it is to model armpits? They are perfection. [Mar 2003, p.52]
  3. It's a decent game with some pretty fun volleyball, although only the diehard sim fans are going to keep going after the first few days of play.
  4. She's less a game and more an interactive vacation - something I can play whenever I have time and not get completely lost. [Mar 2003, p.130]
  5. Hopping is very big on Zack island, a magical place where sense has yet to arrive. [Apr 2003, p.78]
  6. Doesn't have the gameplay or variety to back up its graphical prowess, and the whole experience ends up feeling pretty shallow.
  7. If you harbour kleptomaniacal tendencies and find curvy polygons racier than we do, then the increasingly repetitive bouts of volleyball and weakness in the rest of the package won't bother you.

    I give it a seven 'cause it's not like it totally sucked. I'll admit I was disappointed when I found out there was no nudity I give it a seven 'cause it's not like it totally sucked. I'll admit I was disappointed when I found out there was no nudity in the game and dissappointed when I found out it's only two players and the two players can't even play on the same team. But the casion games were good, playing Volleyball and the Hopping game aren't bad either. And the girls are hot which is a plus, but it's not a game I would buy . . . Expand

    Well Kevin R..it would seem we have come to some kind of agreement...on a whim, my friend brought it over to my house for us to Well Kevin R..it would seem we have come to some kind of agreement...on a whim, my friend brought it over to my house for us to "play"...while I actually wanted to play some volleyball, he wanted just to sit there and play the lame mini games... i personally think real girls are hotter then polygons..but thats just me i guess...the volleyball aspect is alright...could have been better...confusing controls..the casino stuff was kinda cool for about 10 mins...but if you like fake women with HHH size boobs, knock yourself out...

    Fantastic looking, also mindless. I couldn't believe there was nothing more to the game than looking at the girls.

    A exploitative soft porn game for spotty teen boys and nerds who can't get a date and can't relate to "real" women. Makes me A exploitative soft porn game for spotty teen boys and nerds who can't get a date and can't relate to "real" women. Makes me ashamed to own an xbox. And anyone who says "I bought it for the gameplay, it's surprisingly deep" is totally kidding themselves. Expand
