I got this game as soon as it came out (which was a looong time ago) and to this day I still play it when I'm bored and want to get the feel of the island again. The controls are good, not great, but good for the DS. When you unlock the Heroine mode of play, you use minigames more and can complete your scrapbook with recipes. The graphics, being old, are not the best, but I feel it doesn't take anything away from this game. The storyline is Okay, neither of them have 'oh, btw, I'm trained to use the bow and climb rocks, and am a survival expert' NO, the Hero and Heroine are both regular people coping with this island and you will definitely be able to relate to them. The Game has multiple endings you can get, so the replay is very high. When you beat the Heroine mode you unlock a character for 'Survival Mode' which is the main bad guy, so I thought it was interesting to start again as him. Don't get me wrong, this game is Fun and worth playing, but it's HARD! It can be very challenging, I recommend looking up a guide to figure out some things and get started before you try to leave beyond the Jungle. There are some excellent built in glitch/cheats that you can use to make the game easier, and I think, more fun, because then you can focus on your relationship with your partner more =) I highly recommend this game, I LOVED IT.
