A little gem
This game is really cute: nice graphics and a lot to do. Much better than the previous. Love it

You'll find amusement in this park
This is a fantastic game. I would not recommend it for people who prefer a challenge as it isn't that difficult a game. I prefer a wide variety of challenge in games to suit my mood at the time. For me, the hour went by WAY too fast which is a good thing for a game - it means I will buy it!
This game has a number of great features to it. You are in an amusement park that is in dire need of repairs. You visit different locations and search for items in a rather unique way - with the items being silhouettes, fractured objects, listed objects as well as 'solve a riddle' objects. It's a very nice variety! In each location you can collect gems (there are one of each kind at each location). You can also find 'food items' in each location to feed your sea ponies who grow hair for you to harvest in exchange for money to use in your park to renovate different parts. You also run a store to earn money and there is a quest system to earn added money to spend as well as puzzles and an achievement system.
There is a LOT going on in this game and really too much to thoroughly explain without confusing folks. The best thing I can suggest is try the demo. If you find the hour goes by too fast, buy it. You won't regret it.

If you liked the first Lagoona, you'll love this one!
First off, if you don't like lighthearted, quirky games, you won't like this one. However, if those qualities appeal to you, I think you will have a great time with this game. I loved the first Lagoona game and was so happy to see a second one (and I hope there will be more!). It's as good, if not better, than the first one. There are a lot of tasks to take care of in every screen and I enjoyed them all. If you are a fan of the dark, scary stories with the convoluted plots, don't bother with this one, but, if you are like me and you like a bit of silliness in your games, this is a winner. This is a long game, too, so I really feel like I got my money's worth.

Better than the first one.
Fun characters, minigames that are not too hard nor too easy, and five different kinds of hidden objects in a main scene, a nice plotline, and fixing up an amusement park.
This game has it all!

Best game I've played so far!
This game has it all: cool puzzles, HOG, quests, and some really funny dialogue. Play time is really long and I was never bored. Highly recommend!

So much fun I have been late for work several times. First, long, long play time. You certainly get your money's worth. And honestly, it has been quite a while since my husband and I vied for computer time. Hubby likes easy, no thinking games. He usually plays on casual mode, while I like a challenge. This game certainly satisfies us both. There is a lot going on, at all times, but if you miss it, you get it later. If a puzzle, which BTW, are unique and challenging, takes too long, like you have to go to work etc, you can skip it, no penalty, and get the reward for it later. And play is different for everyone. Hubby has somehow acquired over 35000 in gold, while mine stays around 2000. Yet we both have developed our theme parks. Not done with the game yet. We have both been playing it for a week. Can't wait to see the end results.

What a unique HOG, great value and so much fun!
This is an awesome hidden object game, there is so much to do it easily could have been a CE.
The hidden object scenes are fun, and there are also "quest" objects that may or may not be in the scene, it keeps you on your toes!
There are also several fun minigames, some you get as you proceed and some are connected to the HOS.
This game is so fun I have played it several times, and discovered "bonus" things I missed before.
Highly recommended for anyone who likes HOGs with extras. Can't wait for the next one!

I enjoyed the first Tales of Lagoona, but this one is even better! The attention to detail as well as likes/annoyances of players was very well observed by the developers. Do you want hints? Do you not want hints? Do you want to play puzzles? Do you not want them or do you wish to play them later? Do you want "quests" or do you want to pass on those that don't lead to new upgrades? And on and on. You, the player, can choose. I've never seen so many optional choices in a hidden object game. Thank you, developers! You really listened to your customers.
I think others have described what the game is about; I'll just comment on other aspects. First off, the artwork is spectacular. In many games, I'm all about the artwork, and this game comes through amazingly. I love all of the extras to look for in the hidden object frames: gems, food for the horses, quests, and, of course the hidden objects themselves which are deceptive but not tiny or annoying. Then, when you are done with the scene, you can arrange the "finds" to fit well for sales -- fun!
The puzzles are very enjoyable and often unique. And you can replay them if you like.
Rumor has it that this was going to be a CE, and it certainly has all of the CE features including wallpaper, screensaver, and bonus stuff. What a deal!
The only aspect I didn't like, and this was true of the first Tales of Lagoona, is the quantity of unnecessary dialogue that one has to listen to or read in order to gain a new quest. I suggest to the developers that when they make Tales of Lagoona 3 #and I fervently hope they do!# that they drop the unnecessary dialogue. It's boring and unskippable if one wants to pursue the new quests. #This is why I only gave it 4 stars on storyline.#
All in all, I heartily recommend this game. I think it's a contender for casual computer game of the year, and I hope it's nominated. Great game, developers! Please bing us more.
