Family Vacation: California is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing! With all the dark, gorey and demonic games out now, this is a refreshing game to play. I loved the graphics and the storyline. It is quite easy and much shorter than other games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright, Clean, Crisp - No Spiders, Snakes, Serial Killers Now that Spring has finally arrived in Northeast Ohio, I was looking for something to match the weather -- warm, bright, relaxing. I found it! As other reviewers have noted, I was getting tired of the dark stories. And while I did buy Gardenscapes Mansion Makeover (already had the first one) to escape the gore and misery of so many of the games, I tired of it halfway through -- not enough rooms. You keep going to the same ones and looking for the same things, usually in the same places. Back to Family Vacation -- I bought it but have not completed it yet. So far a scene has not been duplicated. The objects make sense as to their locations. Their sizes are realistic, nothing tiny or obscured. I can't comment too much on the story line since I am not done, but so far it has been a breath of fresh air. If you're looking for frustration, challenge, dark scenes and even darker story lines, look elsewhere!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light HOG This is a simple game but beautiful, funny, light and relaxing.... There are no vampires, blood, nightmares, snakes or demons. The objects are not difficult to find and their shapes are clear, the images are bright and colorful, and you really enjoy it. I would love to have more games like this one to play. I recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and safe family game This game is easy, straight forward search of hidden objects in everyday places; rooms, poolside, hotel lobby etc. There is no spooky creatures but very nice relaxed music playing in the background when you are asked to look for "hat" or "sunglasses" or "cookie" or other easy items. Story is about family going for a holiday and the short discussions between family members could be easily placed to any family. This would be in my opinion a perfect game for children to play so that parents don't need to worry about the content. For any other players this is a game for tuning out but challenge level is minimum except for some items where my eyes just didn't catch the object. It might be that those 8 years old see everything straight away though :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Fun This game is such a refreshing break from all the dark, heavy, and mostly sinister games that have been coming out. Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of those, but this is just a clean, truly family friendly game with crisp, clear graphics and a clean story line. The story goes from the family's home to the airport, and onto the whole trip they are taking. Mostly hidden object with puzzles in between. Colors are bright and vivid, although there are no voice overs, you can read along, which is fine. Music is upbeat, if not a little too repetitive, but you can adjust the sound. Challenge wise, it is very easy, even for younger players, but I am having a lot of fun playing too. If you are looking for a deep, lengthy drama with morphing objects and a vast array of special effects, you should pass this one up. If, on the other hand you just want to have some clean, family friendly fun, this may be just what you're looking for. I hardily recommend this game for all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fun Vacation Game I've only played the 1 hour but it is a nice HOG. Fun family game, NOT just for children but fun for adults as well!! I am buying it. It is very pleasant and a definate change from all the many dark, dreary games. Wish there were more vacation games. How about vacations to Paris, and so many other fun places...maybe some day..... It was cheery, easy to see. Can't wait to play the rest of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from finally a hidden object game that makes sense! I have grown tired of hidden object games that have you searching for hammers that are defying gravity on the window ledge or enlarged or miniature items. In this game, you are looking for items where they probably would be and they are of proper size. It is much less frustrating for me. I also like the assembly of pieces for certain objects (requiring you to find all of the pieces before it is checked off the list) and the close up searches. The challenges and games added extra fun in the mix. This game is by far my favorite hidden object game. I will have to look hard and long before finding another like it.
