Virtual Villagers: A New Home
Addicting first installment of this series!
I am completely hooked on this series, and this is the game that started it all. In this game, you meet a small tribe of islanders who are exploring a mysterious island while also seeking to sustain their own basic needs (shelter, food, etc.) You are in charge of training these castaways, developing individual skill sets, assigning job roles, and making sure they have adequate food and shelter while increasing the tribal population. The puzzles are fun, the storyline is interesting, and it will keep you engaged for hours. The only thing I dislike about this game (as opposed to others in the series) is the graphics are not as good. However, it is still a great game and I highly recommend it.

Waaay too slow...
I enjoyed this game at first.
Cute characters, fun storyline, interesting puzzles to solve. I also liked that the villagers continue to progress even when you aren't playing the game.
After a very short time, it all seems the same. This game became very boring, very quickly.

I think it was OK but not great! Keep that in mind

I don't see the appeal.
After the puzzles are solved, I really don't see the appeal or have the desire to play it again after the first time.
I found the game rather boring and tedious due to the length of time it took to do anything and lack of tasks other than continually picking people up and dropping them on the few tasks in the game. I wish Gemini Lost would get it's sequel already. It's a much, much better game than VV. I really regret buying the game.

First of all: I'm a 56 year old woman that likes to play Royal Envoy or Westward.
Virtual villagers is so boring. You can hardly influence the game, you'll just have to wait until next morning to see what happend.
For lazy gamers only!

Okay, I've gathered the berried and made a baby & now am making a hut. What's the point!! The game goes nowhere!!

don't like the fact that they give you options for the numbers, I like to figure everything out for myself.

Worst game I've played so far
This is the worst game I have played so far (and I buy A LOT of games). Actually, you don't play this game, you watch it play itself! No challenge, poor visual and sound, no fun at all.
The only reason why I will watch this game play itself until it's finished is because I have unfortunately paid for it.
