Build-a-lot 3: Passport to Europe
Best Game of the Series!!
This game is absolutely brilliant, even better than Build a lot 2, which, up to now, was my favourite Build a lot game.
Finally, finally, the developers have listened! They've improved the game's graphics dramatically and it has paid off! It really felt like I was playing a modern-day game.
Once again, this game has a storyline. You travel all over europe building and restoring homes.
One of the new features of this game was Restoring run-down houses which had a negative appeal on the neighbourhood. This really added fun and excitement to the game.
Fire department. This was another new feature in the game, which I thought was fun, untill I found out it cost $5,000 to call them!
In the first level of Portugal, I was completely ovewhelmed. The impossible goals, added by building a workshop, which added negative appeal to the neighbourhood, and topped off by never having enough money or materials. Smoke damage and repairs would always appear in the wrong places and I was forced to restart this level quite a few times.
Apart from the one flaw, you'll never find anything bad about this game. It's great for lovers of the series, or new players.

To Much Fun
Too Much Fun. It starts out very easy, you think it's a piece of cake and as the game goes on the difficulty level gets harder. Once you start playing it's hard to stop. If you love TM games the Build-A-Lot's are one of the best collections you can own and I can't wait for the next one to come out. I own them all and I recommend you give it a try.

Passport to Fun!!
This is another fantastic addition to the Build-a-lot series. This time you are visiting European countries with a view to helping out the citizens of various fictional cities. As ever, these games start tame, as has been mentioned, but become progressively harder from level 31 onwards.
Some are so challenging you will probably have to play them several times, planning and strategising even before you begin a level. Can you complete all requirements on Expert? You can also play the casual un-timed mode. As ever, in the later levels more objectives will be thrown at you almost at the last minute. It's tough indeed, but a long fun game well worth the price.
The graphics are excellent and the developers have tried to match music befitting to each country (not sure they always got this right), meaning you are not listening to the same melody through all 45 levels.
Great game for a day when you can lock the door and forget about doing anything else until you're through.
