For the first time ever, the hit TV series Survivor has come to your PC. Play as any of the actual 32 Pulau Tiga and Australian Outback cast members or create your own character. Now you can put your skills to the test and see if you have what it takes to become the ultimate survivor.
Determine your role in the tribe by choosing from 10 essential survivor skills, such as field craft, fishing, and cooking. Form alliances and develop relationships with fellow tribe members, or choose to vote off competitors at the tribal council.
Learn the ins and outs of self-preservation from the interactive Survivor bush guide while you compete in 24 reward and immunity challenges. Play through a full-, half-, or short-season game. And once you're up to the challenge, compete against friends via LAN or the Internet.

When you start playing, you're given the option to choose which edition of survivor to play, but the only one available is Australian Outback. Then, you choose how long of a game you want and who you want to be. Then you begin the "survival period." You're supposed to hurry to pick which task you want to do, but the computer does them all so there's really no point to this at all. Instead, the point of survival period is to chat with your fellow survivors. Nevermind that the dialogue is derivative, stupid, repetitive, and sometimes downright full of non-sequiters. This is how you build alliances and get people voted off.
Unfortunately, you have no way to influence your "allies." One second they'll tell you Colleen has got to go, and the next second they'll vote Rudy off. You can tell them to please vote for Jenna, but they'll vote for B.B. regardless. This really limits the fun factor when you're just hoping they don't feel like voting YOU off.
Then, after a 3-minute survival period, you do a reward challenge. These will be dumb games like shooting arrows at boring targets, answering repetitive questions about the outback (which reappear way too quickly), and stupid races where you click arrows to indicate effort and then click them down once your player begins to get fatigued. This is about the level of a 1982 arcade game, if that.
Then, whoever wins gets a physical and mental boost, which makes you better in later reward challenges (yay) and more points to allocate toward other survivors. It's here that you choose who you like and dislike. Nevermind that your ratings don't have to match with someone else's at all.
After another survival period (it's at this point you'll begin to realize all of the dialogue can be whipped through in two minutes, and you're going to keep hearing "I think I should take a breather" for another 12 episodes) you finally vote people off. After a long, boring, and dull video sequence, you finally vote whoever you want off. Of course, chances are half of the other people will vote someone else out of the tribe. Then, you get to do it all over again. Sound like fun? No? If you're a fan of survivor, wait until it's in the bargain bin ([amt]), and if you're not a fan, avoid this game like the plague.
