This review is from: The Sims 2: Castaway (PS2) (Video Game)
The Sims 2: Castaway is a lot different to previous Sims games.

You first make a crew of Sims, each having their own skills and personalities, then you pick the Sim you want to start off with. After that, it shows your crew on a boat having fun, but then a storm arrives and your crew falls overboard. Your Sim is washed up on a small beach and from there it begins.

As you explore the island you will find a lot of food you will need to harvest to survive, like fruit, berries, vegtables, etc. But it's not only food you need. Other things like wood and vines you will need to craft tools and build too.

There are three islands in total you can explore. Each one having their own secrets. There are chimps that live on the islands that can become friends and even butlers. Your other crew members will show up also as you explore more.

I found this game enjoyable. The goals you have to do are quite easy, and it is fun trying to work out where you want to build your home. You can control the other crew members, which is handy, but only when they become a part of your tribe. When you have a full tribe you can really build great things.

Your Sims do become scruffy over time and their clothes get ruined, so making new clothes is a must. Things like that are very realistic.

So, instead of going to bed, getting up for work, etc, this game is all about exploring, building and trying to survive. A great new Sims game.

The only real bad thing about this game is the loading times, which can get quite annoying.

Oh, and watch out for those pigs.

Why do nearly all ps2 sims games have awful loading times, and graphical glitches? I hope this doesnt have as much slowdown as sims 2 did.

Unfortunatly, long loading times and some small, yet noticeable , glitches are in this game. But that seems to be the only problem, I think anyway. The Wii version of this game does seem to be better, as it doesn't seem to have the technical problems the PS2 version does.
