Farm Mania: Hot Vacation
Farm Mania is one of my favourite games on BFG and I absolute love this sequel.
What is good about it is that it takes what I loved about the first one and keeps it the same but adds enough new things and detail, and a great story, to make it a great game without being *too* like the first one (although essentially it is the same game play - it shifts enough to not be exactly the same).
The graphics are brilliant, the sound quality excellent, it is SO fun and the harder levels provide adequate challenges! As always the mini-games are cute and fun too!

Fun Farming Game!
This is a fun game. It is challenging enough without being too easy or hard. I love the graphics; they're clear, bright and cheerful. You can travel to Australia, Egypt and China. Grow vegetables, raise sheep and other livestock, go fishing, and make products. Keep intruders like hyenas out of your pastures. Grandma and grandpa are your helpers but you must tell them what to do. I really like how you have certain requirements for each level, but you can do extra chores to earn more coins. Finish in the required time but the game will allow you to stay on the level until you are done and it's getting dark.You can also sell your extra animals and upgrade your equipment. Great game!

Fun & Heart Pumping
I love time management. This game is definitely on my top favs now. Fast paced, heart pumping (due to time clock ticking) and fun! Next!!??!?!?! in the series/collection... YES PLEASE!

This is one of the best series of TM games! The challenges on each level are simple enough to complete each time but not always easily done at the Expert level. I kept coming back to Farm Mania 2 and then decided to try this new twist. This game puts you to the test to develop crops, fulfill orders, plan your beasts and crops, and figure out the minigames. Too bad there are not more TM games of this caliber! I SO recommend this game!

Great value for a great game
Totally addicted to this game. Only downloaded it because I needed a new game and found a brilliant game. So then downloaded FM 1 & 2. Fantastic game and well worth the money spent with over 40 levels!

Got the Mania, Let's do it Again!!
I own the second and third of this series, but I have to say that the third is my favorite! I do think it's kind of funny that the characters decide to take a break from farming to go on vacation, only to travel the world entering farming competitions in different countries. :o)
The different locales is part of the reason this game is so much fun. The graphics, story and music are all great. Sometimes I turn the music volume down just because I've played it so much, the music can get a bit repetitive.
Gameplay: You build up your farm, almost from scratch, each time you go to a new location. Though, you do get to keep any worker power-ups that you purchase. You'll add new animals and crops that tie in with the location. Like camels in Egypt and rice in China. About every 5 levels there is a mini game of finding the lost animals, which they've done in both the previous versions of this game. You can locate hint butterflies to find any animals you've missed. After you've completed the game on normal mode, you then unlock arcade mode which is exactly the same, except that you have far less time to complete each level. There are a couple of levels where timing is absolutely everything, if you ever hope to achieve the elusive expert score.
Hours and hours of fun and like i mentioned in the beginning, a repeat play kind of game. I can't wait until the next one! Highly recommend this one if you love farming and/or time management games.

Best of the three
I love all three of these Farm Mania games; this is the best. Have played several times and keep trying to beat my score.
Love the animals.
At the end there was a "to be continued" and can't wait for #4.

The Best Game I've played yet!
This is a very fast pace game! Very addictive, I play this game every nite. I have finished all the levels and started over again. I liked the other Farm Mania games also, but this is the best! Waiting for the next one!!

Hours of fun
If you liked the first two Farm Mania games, you will really enjoy this one. The game play is basically the same, but there are new elements that make it even more enjoyable. There are exotic locations, new animals (livestock and the pesky kind) and interesting new crops. For the seasoned FM players, the levels won't be difficult to pass...but they still present a nice challenge. For those new to FM, be sure to organize your time well, feed animals before they ask (this seems to make them either grow, or produce wool or feathers faster) and watch out for animals that steal crops.
The graphics are cute and the music is pleasant. You can get a lot of enjoyment out of this game.
