can't get enough. hours of entertainment! All of the virtual villager games are great. I wish they would stop making hidden object games by the dozen and make a couple more of these.

Than these Virtual Villagers games! I have only regretted buying a game a few times in my life and buying Virtual Villagers and using my coins to get the second of the series The Lost Children,are two of those times. I did play the 1-hour demo for each,but there is no way that short time gives you any clue as to how ridiculously long it takes to get the tech points to be able to buy the things you need such as Level 3 Farming in both games which costs 50,000,in Game 1 and 90,000 in game 2! Nor will you have any idea how long it takes to advance your peeps from Trainee through Adept to Master Builder,Farmer,or Researcher. Trying to get enough Tech points to buy the skills necessary to solve the puzzles takes what little fun there could be in these games out. There are far too many better and more fun games to play for me to ever recommend these! On the contrary my advice is to AVOID them!

I have not gotten in too deep yet since i am involved in playing Cradle of Persia. Virtual Villagers intrigued me enough to download it and see what the story was. The idea that it goes on even if you do not have your computer on is unbelievable to me. I am 82 years old and captivated by all this new technology even though I do not understand a lot of it. I would certsinly recommend someone to download this game and try it . I did and I am glad I did even though I lost my tribe since I do not have the time yet to work with it. As soon as I get through the levels in Cradle of Persia.I will be playing Virtual Villagers.

This game was kind of fun. I liked seeing what the children of my villagers would turn out to look like. However, my annoying villagers were way too needy. In the end, I didn't have time for such a consuming game. You had to constantly feed your villagers, help them build houses, they couldn't do anything on their own! Ridiculous. Plus, it takes forever for anything to happen - building homes, building skills, getting food, babies becoming children, growing up, even walking! Not a game for the busy, the impatient, or the ones who would like something fast-paced.

Very good slow paced game. I love all the tricks to get the people to do things. Some of the tricks you had to look up on the internet to figure out. Pretty cool game and kid friendly. A play over and over game.

Like the game so far................. a little slow getting started. But once I figured it out, it has been fun to come back to it every day just to see what the villagers have been up to.

I have really been on a kick with these tribe simulations lately but I have to tell you, this one was painfully slow. The graphics look like they're straight out of the 80's. I did end up purchasing Virtual Villagers: Tree of Life but only because you can choose characters that run. The problem is that the ones that run seem too fast, the ones that don't seem too slow. I don't trust it to play overnight (unlike other tribal games) and it seems too labor intensive to complete simple tasks. Right now I have no motivation to play it. I would highly recommend Gemini Lost (#1 pick for tribal simulation in my opinion - this game has everything you WISH V.V. had and at nice speed too). My Tribe is also fun but still secondary to Gemini Lost. V.V. is just too slow & repetitious in my opinion.

First off, this game may or may not be kid friendly, depending on what you define as kid-friendly. The rating for this game is "E" with a note about "Suggestive Themes." I think it's fine, the only thing "suggestive" about it is that you have to drop men and women on top of each other to make them have children. They kiss, and there's a baby. It shows /nothing/, and it's really funny. The villagers have to be 18, and it won't let you drop villagers of the same gender together; They run away from each other. Maybe the "Suggestive Themes" come in because there's no real way to keep them from not having babies with whomever is of age. Unless your child is not old enough to know that's not how things are done, then I'd say this game is perfectly kid-friendly. If you do a web search for Virtual Villagers to figure out how to solve all the puzzles, do it AFTER you have tried everything you think you know how to do, to get the puzzles solved. Otherwise, you might disappoint yourself. A note about accessibility: I have some small troubles using a mouse, but I don't have any real trouble with this game, except playing it too much :) If you have bigger troubles though, you might have some issue. It's not really playable with mouse-keys. The villagers are big enough for me to see well enough in full screen, but for people with worse vision, it can be magnified if it's in windowed mode. This game is 100% colorblind accessible. :) And now, my only game tip: Still reading? DO NOT get the Golden Child before you've finished researching ALL the technology. Seriously: GET THE GOLDEN CHILD LAST!
