Virtual Villagers: The Lost Children Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new review from Out of Eight examines the PC version of Virtual Villagers: The Lost Children a continuation of the epic story of the castaways of Isola. In Lost Children players guide the tribe as it struggles to rescue a group of lost children and survive other new adventures. Out of Eight gave the game a score of 5 out of 8.

From the review:

You start out with a village of seven individuals: two adults, a couple of teenagers, and mostly young children (not surprising considering the title of the game). The goal of the game is two-fold: construct a working island environment and discover the islandís secrets along the way. Each older citizen of your village can be skilled in five areas: farming, building, research, healing, and parenting. Each of these skills are learned by dropping the character on an object. For example, placing a person on an unfinished hut will increase their building skill as they complete the project. Every other area is done in the same way, and harmony is found in your village by creating a balance in the number of people assigned to each task. This is complicated, however, since you are not given enough people in the beginning to fulfill all of the needed tasks.
