Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!! Finally! I wait all year for the new installment of this series! This is the best type of hidden object games...no inventory list, no going back and forth between scenes...just straight forward finding the objects. Wish there were more type of this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OPT FOR THE CE VERSION IF POSSIBLE, IT REALLY IS CE WORTHY Completed Games 1-8 Vacation Adventures 9 approximately 4.5 hours (not including the 48 CE version mini-game extras!) I read several reviews when the CE version was released stating that they would wait for this Standard Edition version because they didn't think the CE was worthy. If you are a Vacation Adventure fan, you may want to reconsider because the CE version is very lengthy and also includes HO scenes in the Buffalo Valley National Park as well. Besides the 24 Wallpapers, 20 Music Soundtracks (more than any CE game offering I can recall) there are 48 Replayable Mini-Games that are the same types offered in the main game, but each one is slightly different, and 48 replayable mini-games is unheard of in any CE game I've ever come across! There are 20 Achievements to earn for completing various tasks such as finding Wildlife, buying Souvenirs, Finishing a Mini-Game Quickly or Completing the Game within 5 hours. The CE version offers an Extreme Mode that doesn't allow you to use hints and has more Wildlife & Recyclable items to search for. The SE version only offers a Casual or Challenge Mode of difficulty. You can use the money you earn playing the HO scenes and mini-games, to purchase 16 Souvenirs in the Camp Shop which will be displayed in the Souvenir Room next to the Shop Icon. There Hidden Object Scenes located all around the park, and even scenes where you find Multiples of the Same or related objects. Each scene has several wildlife animals to find that are shown as Silhouetted Shapes in a box to the left of the word search bar and when all the Wildlife have been spotted, the box will close. There is a Wildlife Notebook to see illustrations of the 126 Wildlife animals as you find them. You will also recycle trash that is lying around, such as plastic bottles, crumpled paper, glass bottles, and cans, when all trash has been found, the recycle can icon is displayed and the bin appears full. There are 12 Camera Photo ops available in scenes that have a Camera Icon, with over 50 HO scenes, they can be easily overlooked so keep an eye out for those icons! You will earn an Eagle Eye achievement if you don't use either the Hint or Mega Hint feature. The Hint feature will show you the location of one random item, and the Mega Hint will show you the location of every item briefly. You will earn a Bronze Star for completing the search, a Silver star if you find all Wildlife OR all Recyclable items, and a Gold star if you find ALL wildlife and ALL recyclable items. Words listed in Blue Print require an interaction of some type, and words in Red Print are hidden inside or behind things, requiring you to click when the Magnifying Glass appears to reveal the item. Most scenes have at least one Zoom Zone that will automatically close once the items have been found, and they may reappear as items are added to the list. Levels can be replayed at any time to better your score or locate items you missed including Wildlife and Recyclable items. My favorite feature in the Vacation Adventures games is the abundance of Mini Games available after each Hidden Object scene, such as Spot The Differences, Rotating Squares, Placing Map pieces, Word Searches, Matching Pairs, Sliding Square Tile puzzles, and several Jigsaw Puzzle variations. The Collector's Edition version has 24 Wallpapers, 20 Music Soundtracks, and 48 Replayable Mini-Games such as Spot The Differences, Jigsaw Puzzles, Square Tile Rotation Puzzles, Strip~Swap Puzzles, Word Search, Lable Placing, Identifying Fish, Knots, Animal Puzzles, Matching Games, Cards and every kind of Vacation Adventure Game that makes it fun to play! You also get to visit the Buffalo Valley, National Park. Either version will make you a Happy Camper but if you're a Park Ranger fan, I think you'll be ecstatic with all the extra's offered in the Collector's Edition version, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I NEED the Collector's Edition! Review based on trial period. When I reviewed the CE version, I wasn't sure whether the extra content was worth double the price of the SE. I've now made up my mind: I'm getting the CE (maybe I'll wait for the next BOGO sale... maybe not). There are a few facts that tipped the scales for me: - The CE has 2 parks to explore, not just 1 (double the fun!) - The CE has an "extreme" mode where you have to find ALL the items in the scene, not just the ones chosen randomly as in the SE (so that means about double the number of items in each scene!) - The CE has bonus "puzzles" (no, I don't mean the minigames between levels) for those like me who like jigsaw puzzles, brain teasers like tile swapping to recreate images, etc. Regardless of the edition you choose, hours of fun are coming your way... assuming you're like me and enjoyed the previous ones in the series!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I kinda feel cheated... Played and reviewed the demo for the CE version when it came out and couldn't see any reason not to wait for the standard version which I purchased yesterday. I just took another look at BF's game description for the CE and there's definitely no mention of the 2nd park story/scenes being available only in the CE version. If I'd have known that, I'd have bought it instead of waiting for this one. Park Ranger 9 is all you've come to expect based on previous games in the series -- a very wholesome, family game -- well-designed, not-too-easy-to-find hidden objects in beautiful scenery. Educational, too! I'm not a fan of the mini games between scenes, find them boring and repetitive, the same in every game in the series except for the picture/background. But I do find the excellent HOS well worth the purchase and play. If you're also a fan of this series, I suggest you purchase the CE version instead -- two parks, double the amount of play according to other reviewers here, so well worth paying the extra for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best, and longest, of the series This is one of my favorite series to play. No time limits to worry about or idiotic back and forth seeking of objects just straight forward hidden object with fun thrown in. Each separate area has additional mini games within where you have to find certain creatures and also some litter. Points add up which you can use in the store. There is a specific story line throughout the overall game and it is nice and straight forward and makes sense. The numerous mini games between areas are a blast and some are easy and some difficult. All add to the overall fun. Graphics are excellent although busy at times but there isn't any of the darkness prevalent in most hidden object games these days. Only complaint (?) I might have is, even though the developer used actual people in the scenes, for some reason the rangers are drawn and look it. They should have used real people there also. The only big complaint I have with this particular game, and what kept it from 5 stars (rare for me), is the length. Most in this series might have 25-35 areas to play but this one has I'm guessing over 50 which made for a long game. I counted once and was up to 37 but I still played for what seemed like forever before the game ended so be prepared for long play. Despite this one drawback, if you have played any of the earlier games in this series, you will really like this one. This is the one series that as soon as the next comes out it is an automatic buy for me and i highly recommend this one especially if you are tired of what is available in HO these days. Play and have fun!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For kids and HO fans only And although I am not one of them, I found the game rather refreshing. I believe it also has an educational value. A good way to get kids interested in wildlife, and maybe, develop in them a desire to embrace a careeer as Park Ranger. That said, back to the game.... Nothing new there, compared to the previous 8 installments: - click to find HOs and silhouetted animals - then play a simple minigame - click for more HOs - play another simple minigame ....repeat.... Some players might find that very boring.... The music isn't bad though. Well, as we always say: play the demo before you make a decision.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the puzzles, the rest is just MEH Hmm, the ninth game in the Vacation Adventures series and there are still those same two things that keep me from giving them a higher rating. First let me mention that the story is cute, and simply written for children to understand. The puzzles between the HO levels range from super easy to a bit more difficult, which makes the game great for all ages. But my biggest complaint has always been the graphics quality in the HO scenes. I don't understand why they have to be hand drawn with photos of real people pasted into them. Many of the objects I needed to find weren't drawn very well, and the resolution of the hand drawn scenes is poor. Why can't they use photo quality graphics to make the game more realistic? And speaking of poor quality graphics, the other issue I have is not being able to spot the trash in the scenes, and then not having the ability to use a hint to find it. I played one scene three times before I ended up clicking all over the scene until I accidentally found the piece of trash. From looking at the other reviews, MY two issues with these games are not important to others. But for me, a perfect five star game should indicate 'perfection', and this one falls short.
