Although I enjoyed Virtual Villagers, I was quite pleasantly suprised to see all the improvements in this second story and rate this as quite entertaining.

It is based on the premise that there is a band of lost children on the other side of Isola, the island, as introduced in the original Virtual Villagers game. They are accidently discovered by two individuals. It is definitely not a carbon copy of the original. New challenges, more things for the children to collect and earn "tech" points that are used to purchase more skills.

This game is fun! Again not a shoot 'em up, wild ride game, it will not interest those people who want non stop action. So don't buy it if that is what you are looking for. If you want a game that makes you use your mind to come up with solutions without having to resort to "tips, tricks, and cheats", you should find this game up to the challenge.

I am still playing it and anticipating a third Virtual Villagers game!

After downloading the demo for Virtual Villagers;The Lost Children, I knew I had to have it and immediately started looking for a CD copy of the full game since I prefer physical media. The game itself is deceptively simple, and very hard to put down, yet because of the game's ability to advance itself even when you're not playing, you can still walk away from it to attend to your life. (This is optional, you can also pause the game.)The gameplay is easy to pick up on, the goals are well-defined and interesting, and the little villagers are totally dependent on your nurturing, yet fully functional in their roles. The only flaw I found is that once you have taken your tribe through the sixteen puzzles and researched all tech to the highest level, there really isn't anything else to do. Conclusion:a lot of fun while it lasts, and may be the kind of game you pick up during a dull moment at work or home but I wouldn't expect to be playing it forever. With that said, the price is about right for what you're getting and the game is quite enjoyable.

This game is not as easy as the first one. I am on my 4th start over! All my villagers died! I am enjoying the challenge. I am glad that I bought this game.
It starts out with only 7 people and most of them are children so they can't work. So there is your challenge.

This is one of the fabulous things that we have cherished as a whole family thing in the recent times! My wife and our daughters are enjoying this game every day and I was initially hooked to this game for first two whole nights!

Thanks and Kudos to the creators!

This is a great little game with a lot of valuable life lessons built into it. Your kids will quickly learn to balance work. If the villagers don't work, they don't eat. If they don't learn, they run out of food. If they don't train a doctor, someone can die without help. They learn a whole host of good things without a word from you.

Sadly, the creators of the games seem to feel the need to build something dark into every game. With this one, you find that you are participating in black magic at the higher levels. For some folks, this might not be an issue, but as a Christian it just feels wrong. This is the second game that had an unpleasant surprise at the end, and we aren't buying the third one.
