Shop-n-Spree: Shopping Paradise
What have they done to my game?!~!
I saw the title Shop-n-spree title & got overjoyed because I loved the first two. I downloaded & began to play. I like being able to pick up multiple items but other then that it's less of a hog & more of a time management. Before it was a nice mix of both but now it feels more time management. You don't really to have to search & find but you have to wait for items to be restocked & you can wrap items or have them mixed or redone. It's neat that they added new things but they added to many & I feel it's overwhelming. The more I played the less fun I was having. I was hoping it was going to be like the last one but with new places to go & new items to find with maybe a couple of upgrades. But the items most of them are repeats from the first two. It saddens that I have to write this & I applaud the company for upgrading the game but alas it did not catch my fancy.

For the last couple weeks I have been anxiously waiting for this game to come out. From the first two games I had high hopes, maybe to high, and it was a major let down. It's boring not challenging enough. The restocking and assembly are annoying. The only thing I like about this game is that you can pick up multiple products at once, but everything else is just dumb.

Nothing like the others
If you are expecting to play Shop-n-spree that you know and love, don't even bother downloading this game. I can't believe they even called it shop-n-spree, the only thing that even looks like the first 2 is the fact that there are customers. The graphics have gone way down in quality and so has the game play. This game was such a disappointment compared to what you should be expecting from the first 2.

Not What I Expected...
Ok... After playing the first two I was REALLY looking forward to this one so I was really disappointed when it turned out to be much more like a TM game than a HO game. Don't get me wrong, I love TM games it's just having played the first two I wanted to get my dose of cute-cartoony-laidback-HO fun! The only new feature they added that I liked was being able to select more than one item at a time. Everything else was goose egg for me. I hope their future games (if any) will be like the previous two.
If you are looking for a time wasting TM game then this will be fun. But, for those looking to play a HO game then look somewhere else.

try out part 1 & 2 instead
Unfortunately, for part three, the makers decided to abandon the original and fun concept that made shop-n-spree 1 and 2 so much fun, and remade 3 to be more like other time managment games. I've no idea why. The parts that reminded you of hidden objects games are completely gone, and there is are new functions such as refilling and wrapping, that, unless you've used the stars you earn playing levels, take a long, stressfull time to complete. Therein, really, lies the challenge, keeping an eye on what items need refilling etc, which can be quite difficult. The game is challenging, but not really fun. The storyline is weak (which was the one real problem the first two parts had).
As for good parts, the music isn't bad (or at least quite inobtrusive) and some of the characters that appeared in the old games reappear here, like the rich man who always buys several items of the same kind. Overall, however, you'd be much better off simply replaying the second game, since if you liked that, you are likely to, like me, hate this one.
