Easy is not so easy
I love time management games, but sometimes want to play easy and relax. Easy here is not easy. There is still a timer for gold, silver, and bronze. I switched to the new Campgrounds Expedition where I could relax and still get gold. It is nice to relax and enjoy the graphics once in awhile. These graphics are crisp and colourful. Excellent detail and expression. And there are distracting bad guys, like in Ranch Rush 1. I preferred Ranch Rush 2 because they were gone. Instructions are clear, simple, and thorough. Lots of levels with new things. I enjoy the tension of surrendering 'old reliable' tasks to make space for new ones after I have become loyal to the status quo. The challenges lead player through this process.

Better Than Most
I really enjoyed this game. It was nice to have a time management game where the mouse movements were contained in a short space. The game is more fun than has been reviewed thusfar. The story line was good and the overall game play was smooth. Storage and selling were smoother than most. The progression in the steps were logical. It was a buy for me.

First 21 Levels were fun
After the 21st level I got silver. A few levels later I gave up on the whole game. I played in easy mode. After about level 23 it was just not fun any more. Sorry. Just not enough time. Kept me way too busy and trying to figure out what I needed next , how much and so on. I did like that the easy mode was timed. Enjoyed about half the game. The first half was 5 stars. But the more I played the stars just dropped off fast down to zero.

A bit slow moving
Having to spend a large chunk of the hour trial on easy level made this game seem even less worthwhile for me. I could have switched to expert mode to play out the rest of the hour, but it would have involved replaying the same games I'd just gone through. None of the levels I played posed even a slight challenge so far, so I won't be buying the full game. I'm sure the expert levels will have a much shorter time to complete, but as I had minutes to spare on each level, I can't imagine it was too tricksome. Not a full review as I only played the trial, but I was bored quickly. I would only recommend it to people who are new to TM and farming games.

Great for 10 YR Olds
This is a fairly good game IF you like this type. If I am going to build, or farm, or search for treasure I want to build on my work. I don't want to start over in every new scene or level but there must be many who do. The graphics are great, the pace is quick and the instructions clear. If I play a farm game I want to expand and grow by the work I'm doing not because I finished a task or level. If this is the type of game you like,you will love it, if you like challenge it will disappoint you for sure.
I guess I would give this game a qualified recommendation.

Farm frenzy in all but name
This game is the above but with a different name. Although unlike the above franchise this game is really just clicking and whilst like the aforementioned game there you have chickens, wheat etc, the game is not as fun as the graphics are not as cartoonesque and the in farm frenzy franchise there is a bit more planning and challenge involved. The easy mode really is easy and it was not until level 8 when you could 'turn on' the expert mode, but even with this you then had to start again from level 1, the point of that being?
The game was too easy, I mean the time-limits were a joke, it may have been ok for a childs/first timers foray into this genre of game, but for any seasoned or anyone who has a vague interest in this genre of game, I would say don't bother.
Another bug bear of mine was the fact that the game didn't retain the mouse settings that I have on my computer, I am left-handed thus my mouse is left-handed for some reason the developers assumed everyone was right-handed. I don't see how in this day and age that the coding has to 'default' to what they say is the norm, I mean how hard can the coding be to keep the default settings.
The music was ok, but as I say the graphics were nothing to write home about, they were adequate but nothing special.
Even on the current sale I can't really recommend this game and only played about 40 minutes of the trial before my wrist got tired from all clicking.

Farm Frenzy without the Frenzy
I didn't care for this at all. It had the mechanics of games such as Farm Frenzy or Ranch Rush without any of the charm. I played 4 levels and that was 3 too many. I found it boring, repetitive, and as I said no charm at all. Just chopping wheat clicking on the mills, selling the product and feeding the chicken. Boring.

Not worth the effort
I had a chance to preview Green Ranch and said I would not buy it and now that I have played the demo I still think that way. The plot is offensive and insulting and the game play is altogether too ?busy?, even on the levels I have played, to be enjoyable. I cannot recommend buying this one.

Boring, Slow, and Stupid
This game has great audio and visuals but that's where the quality stops. A nonsensical, sluggish, and irritating tutorial ruined this game for me. The fact that turning it off didn't improve the pace or overall fluidity of gameplay broke this game. It is unbearably slow and tedious. Nothing is clearly outlined and there are simply too many tasks. This game could have been amazing, and it reminds of the terribly flawed "Snow Globe" game that I wanted to like but simply couldn't. There is a serious lack of quality "farming" games out there. Hint to developers: gamers DON'T enjoy waiting around for resources to accumulate. Stop making slow and stupid TMG/BUILDER/STRATEGY games that have no flow, consistency or point. Such a waste...
