The Sims 2: Castaway (PlayStation 2)


It might not have been clear back in 2000 that The Sims would become the best-selling, multiplatform phenomenon it is today. But the series' unusual formula--which let you control the lives of little computer people as they ate, slept, found work, and...

Def Jam: Fight for NY (PlayStation 2)


When Def Jam Vendetta hit store shelves last year, it could not have been called anything but an out-of-left-field success. EA's seemingly unholy marriage of Aki Corporation's highly regarded wrestling-game engine with a hip-hop-themed street-fighting...

The Sims 2: Castaway


Will your shipwrecked Sim successfully escape the deserted island? Or will you be content to build an island paradise ala Gilligan's Island? Will you create other Sims to keep you...

Freedom within the game to do quite a lot ; Nice graphics and catchy music ; Friendly Chimps ; Being stranded on a deserted island is an interesting premise for a game

L-o-n-g, potentially game freezing load times ; Plans/Grab system a bit clunky

The Sims 2: Castaway


The best installment of the series on console teaches that just surviving can be better than living large.

One of the best Sims games on console; plenty of options and locations

No multiplayer options at all; graphics are decent, but not outstanding

Making friends with monkeys

Streamlined menu systems ; Most accessible Sims game yet ; Adventure game approach is pretty cool

Another Sims game ; Hope you love collecting berries ; Being used to next-gen graphics

That had to hurt...

If you didn�t like the previous game, don�t bother with this one as it doesn�t deviate enough from the previous game to give it another chance, as its main gameplay is essentially the same. However, on the flipside, if you thought Vendetta was good,...

Def Jam: Fight for NY - ps2


This all comes together in a pretty obsessive little package. All told, story mode took me somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 or 15 hours to complete, but that's not including two character restarts, nor completing the bonus matches after the story is...

The real 'Rumble in the Bronx'

It's a great sequel and a great fighting game. Though there are a few things I am not pleased with, I know it's a game worth playing.

Def Jam Fight for NY


When Def Jam Vendetta was originally announced, some gamers scoffed at the premise. A wrestling game with rappers?! Their jests were squashed as Vendetta provided an appealing story, plenty of famous artists to beat up (or play as in skirmish modes)...

Don't get me wrong, Fight For New York is far and away a marked improvement over Vendetta. Wrestling, fight and hip hop fans will find this game will occupy them for quite some time. A larger story line, greater number of options and plenty of...
