Fix-It-Up: World Tour
Best of the Fix-It-Up games (so far)
I have all three of the current Fix-it-Up games and the World Tour game is by far my favorite.
The game play is similar in all of them -- you're running a garage that can, eventually, do anything from fix to "upgrade" a variety of vehicles. In this version, you do two 3-game sets in an of the world, and then there's an optional 3-game set where you build something special. With each game set you have a new garage with different cars and different goals. Also, each area can have different needs based on climate and culture.
The game play is a lot more fun in this version, I think, and it is a very replayable game.

Better than the first Fix-It-Up
I like all the fix it up games, but this one is certainly the best. The game play is much longer than the first game (more like a full sized game now). The game is a challenge without being too difficult and it is very addictive.

Fix it up fan
I enjoy the fix-it-up series, I have completed them all but I always find myself going back for more or trying to get a better time.

Great TM game for car fans
This is definitely a good game for fans of the genre. I found it didn't hold my interest, probably because I'm not really into cars and didn't care all that much for the graphics. Game mechanics are very well thought out; there are a lot of things you can do in this game. You travel the world and fix up, paint, mod, tune ... different cars, build repair shops etc. As a reward for a well-played level, you earn coins to build a mansion. So if you like time management games, you should try this one!

Favorite of the Fix-It-Up games
Kate and her friends go to different places and open up garages. They finally end up building a race car to race in Japan. I have played this game many many times. Enjoyed it.

The Car Fixers go worldwide
Review based upon the completion of the game with all achievements but one.
This is the second part of the Fix-it-up series. It picks up where we left the characters and then it puts the empire up on a world wide scale. This time around we got bonus levels, achievements and are building a mansion.
+ extras built in bonus levels make main levels easier
+ tasks are changing mid-level
+ challenging levels and achievements
o Kate is still not the most attractive person
- basic gameplay / buildings still the same as Part 1
The Bottom Line: I liked the game, but it helps if you are interested in cars to appreciate it. There could be more variation in the gameplay, but if you are interested in Time Management / (easier) Strategy I can recommend the game.

I was disappointed with this game. You just do the same thing over and over again. As the levels progress, you just have more things to do at once. Same ole, same ole!!!

All three Fix-It-Ups are on my list!
I tried all three of the fix it up series now, and found that every one of them was great fun! I plan to own all three, but like many of the reviewers here, I agree that this one seems like the best of all of them!
The story is interesting, and you jump from character to character, experiencing the adventures of all three as they work garages around the world.
The gameplay does look longer from what I've seen of the map screen, and just like the others, this game will suck up your time as you find it hard to stop buying low, fixing up the cars, and selling them back for great profits!

Keep coming back to this game!
I don't know what it is about this installment of Fix-It-Up but I keep coming back to play it!!
The graphics are a little old fashioned now (tho' not unpleasingly so), there's not much to it beyond the Story challenge and Free play, and I don't know where I am on that map!, but I love the gameplay. I wish they'd do another one - a collectors edition type with extra games :)
