Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover?
A cute and lovely game!
Well, i was really hooked at first. I was so fond of playing it, but after some time I get bored. Maybe because the things you'll need to find are often the same. But the storyline was excellent. I love upgrading the garden by buying things with your money collected and making it beautiful again. For all the hidden objects lovers out there, this game is for you! :)

This game is cute, but way too menotinious. This would be much better if you where able to decorate as you saw fit instead of his taste. Would be really cute if we could decorate the other rooms as well. Over all I liked it.

Hi, I don't normally play these kind of games, but the good reviews prompted me to try it. And, actually I enjoyed it. Fun, good graphics, nice characters and storyline. Made a nice change to the HOGs and adventure games I usually play. Even bought the gardenscapes after playing this one which was also good fun!

Nice and Long
This game has a fun storyline and combines the hidden object with action because you have to buy new items as you earn money for selling items. Its long, a nice time consuming game and I would stop and get back to it later. Great buy!

My first time playing Mansion Makeover and was hooked before my trial was done and enjoyed it so much I got the first release as well. The only con was feeling like you were making progress on rooms only to go back and it's right back to where it was. How great it would be to see the rooms slowly get cleaned up and organized and remain that way, would be much more of a sense of accomplishment along with getting the garden or mansion restored. Would love to give 5 stars if not for that..

Not as good as the original Gardenscapes
Whilst I quite enjoyed this game it was over a bit too quickly, it would have been nice to be 'doing up' the whole house and not just the entrance hall/drawing room or whatever it is, also the choices for decorating are a bit lacking, if you want to change something such as the 3 piece suite you have to do it one item at a time which is a bit of a swizz, however short though it may have been, it kept me occupied over the past 2 very rainy days!

A Sequal That's Better Than The Original
The first Gardenscapes was a great game, and I occasionally go back to it and play a few rooms just for fun. This game - Gardenscapes Mansion Makeover - is even more fun. The graphics are excellent and the characters are fun as well. It's entertaining to click on the guy and his dog to see what they'll do.
I have one complaint and if there is a third gardenscapes, I hope they get it right this time. You always get a choice of three items each time you make a purchase - one of the choices always seems to fall beautifully into a 'red' themed mansion. I love it and really enjoyed the final results.
Then I played it a second time, looking forward to a new color scheme. That's when I realized the game's big flaw. There is no second or third distinct color scheme. You mostly get choices of white - or once in a while a blue.
I don't see why the creators of the game couldn't have set up the other two choices as two additional distinct color schemes. A stronger blue scheme distinct from the white theme. Or perhaps a green scheme instead of a white scheme.
The sad part is, since they had to create all the items to choose from, following three distinct color schemes would not have cost them any additional time. It can't take any longer to color a lamp blue than it does to color it white or red or green.
I had to force myself to finish my second time playing the game because I was determined to verify if there was another good color scheme than red. I just finished the game using anything but red items. The choices if you are not using red, as I said earlier, are basically white. There appears to be somewhat of an effort to go with blue - but there weren't enough items in blue to make it as much fun or as intense or complete as the red.
If the game did offer 3 strong, distinct color schemes, it would have gotten stright highest marks from me. Please note that the extra low rating I gave to Visual/Sound Quality was due to my issue with the color scheme. The music with the game is good and the quality of the graphics is excellent.
