    Offers an addictively eclectic mix of item collecting, gambling, and relationship building; tantalizing eye candy; and one outstanding game of volleyball.

    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.

    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]

    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.

    Its a game made by team ninja, of course the graphix are going to be amazing. The actual gameplay is a lot of fun 2, taking a very arcady Its a game made by team ninja, of course the graphix are going to be amazing. The actual gameplay is a lot of fun 2, taking a very arcady approach. Also, the gamblin is solid and the friend scheme is a good idea. Only thing that keeps this game from being godlike is the multiplayer, why couldn't it be 4 players? jeez, at least let player be on the same team..... Expand

    A exploitative soft porn game for spotty teen boys and nerds who can't get a date and can't relate to "real" women.

And anyone who says "I bought it for the gameplay, it's surprisingly deep" is totally kidding themselves. Expand
