The Sims 2: Castaway (Wii)


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...

Unfortunate technical problems bring down what is otherwise the freshest new take on a console Sims game yet.

The Sims 2: Pets (DS)


Thanks to Nintendogs, pet simulators have entered the mainstream. People love them, probably because they simulate the experience of having a pet without requiring the time and effort that real animals do, and they don't make you clean up nasty...

The Sims 2: Pets (PlayStation 2)


The Sims series started on the PC as a popular and difficult-to-describe strategy game that let you control the lives of little computer people in the houses you built for them, as they loved, grew old, had families, and occasionally used the potty....

Pretend to be Tom Hanks and go crazy on an island

Building survival tools ; Exploring new islands ; Working toward a concrete goal

Doesn't take advantage of Wii controller ; Long, frequent load times ; Cruddy graphics

Expert review by:

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

Stop telling us it's really just an automated dollhouse; the ultimate "real life" simulation is...

Constant flow of unique rewards ; Sim-ulated language and music ; Career advancement and exploration

Simulates mundane life too well ; Sims don't interact well ; Limited save slots

The Sims 2: Pets


You might want to leave this puppy behind the window and adopt its PC brother instead

Cats and dogs are fun to watch ; Especially in ridiculous costumes ; Basic Sims gameplay is intact

But made tedious by the controls ; Stripped down presentation and options ; Town Square mostly just Pet Square

Expert review by:

The Sims 2: Pets


EA's latest Sims title rains cats, dogs, and problems.

Deep and fun creation of pets; realistic behavior and interactions

Apart from pets, there isn't much to do; too few options and modes
