Vacation Adventures: Park Ranger 2
In a word, Tedious!
I rarely give 2 stars to any game as the creators work so hard, but unless you really love HOGs with teeny tiny items, the same terrible music that repeats until you want to scream, skip this one.
To be fair I did not play the game very long, maybe 10 minutes before I quit. There is no real story, staid static illustrations, and no action. While I know there is something for everyone I really have to wonder who wrote the good reviews because only the most patient could sit still long enough to play this one for long.
But try the demo and see if you could wade through it. I could not.

Was not impressed
I played and bought the first version of this game. I really liked that game. This version I pretty much went with the reviews and thought it would work. I bought the game without playing the free version first. I didn't like it. I didn't find it fun at all! Although people said the hidden objects were not hard to find, I found them hard to find. I even had trouble finding the nature animals. Some of the mini puzzles were not "user friendly" either. I do like a challenge ,but the level of challenge for this version I thought there was to much camouflage for the HOs. The story line was predicable and the sound was not bad. Sorry I paid for this game. Hopefully, the next version is built better.

I am not sure what other players call the HOG scenes where there are just a bunch of messy items that are difficult to see unless you crawl up in the screen.
I call them garbage scenes. maybe junk scenes are better.
The game is very laid back- there is no direction, point, or anything else. So if that is for you- go ahead. IF you are interested in a quality game with somewhat of a point - skip it.
I was not aware that you were supposed to collect recyclables, animals, or other additional objects. Perhaps they should have done a tutorial about it. I ended up replaying all of those scenes after I realized I was supposed to be collecting additional items.
I did play a fair amount, hoping it would get better. Eventually I just died of boredom and uninstalled before the trial was up.

I seriously think I must have been playing a different game than everyone else.
A lot of positive reviews. There were no negative ones when I decided to give the demo a spin. And as I write this review there still doesn't seem to be any.
I didn't find it very fun and generally I like games of this sort.
The quality of sound was okay.
Graphics were pleasant enough.
I just found myself so bored with it.
The puzzles were far too easy and the HOs were kind of lackluster.
I guess I thought that with all those raving reviews and 5 and 4 stars it would have been really worth giving it a go.
But I really do believe that the demo I played and the demo everyone else played are completely different demos.

I lasted for 10 min of demo, then deleted game. I did not like this one any more than I liked the first game. Both are very boring. Both do not cover my computer screen. In both the objects to find are way too small even with my glasses on.

Not my cup of tea
Although there will be people out there that like this game I did not. There were a lot of things in the game that are really hard to find. I never did get all the recycling items in a level. The graphics were pretty good and the story line was good, but that is about all I liked about this game.

not up to original
i've been waiting for the Mac version?boy was i disappointed. I have played the 1st Park Rangers game many times and it is a dynamite, relaxing game. This game was frustrating from the get go because the HO's are mainly junk piles. It's as if the developers wanted to assault our vision by cramming as much "stuff" into each scene.
The objects can be very dark but the hint button fills up quick (on casual play). I would wait till this game is on sale or 2 for 1.
