Virtual Villagers: The Lost Children Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story recently posted a new review of the PC version of Virtual Villagers: The Lost Children. The second in the series, Lost Children continues the epic story of the castaways of Isola. GamersInfo recommended the game to fans of both the casual and "sims" genres.

If you have played the first Virtual Villagers, this game play is very similar. Your village starts off with a few villagers of working age, and a few children scampering around the island. You are capable of viewing each villager's likes and dislikes, skills, age, and overall condition. Each villager can be assigned jobs, and be trained in skills, from gathering food, to researching technology, learning about medicine, construction, and making babies! (That is the most fun one.) Dropping villagers on different areas of the island can make them do new things, well, at least ponder how to do new things. Initially villagers can't do too much; unskilled and no research for your village means a lot of the objects around the map simply don't make much sense to them.

As time passes, your villagers will gain in skills, and be able to construct and figure out an object's use with proper research or training. From learning how to climb trees, build new huts, or learn how to harvest crops; your villagers evolve into their own little people, with their own little achievements and wacky personalities. Like Ophelea, the brunette who loves to run anywhere and everywhere... well, one day (foolish me) I call her pretty, and it goes straight to her head. The next thing I know she doesn't want to learn anything, and hates working, so she slacks off all day! Every time I look she is over swimming in that pond! GET BACK TO WORK! So each person has their own little life, it can be amusing, and annoying at the same time to deal with, just like real people (though those are mostly annoying).
The full review is available at the site below.
