Garden Rescue: Christmas Edition is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than the original This is the special Christmas edition of the tower defence strategy game "Garden Rescue". It is very similar (same bugs, same strategies, same range of difficulty), but there are some improvements too: 1. Some bugs are dressed in comic little coats and scarfs as they advance through your snowy frosty garden. 2. You don't have to click on your strawberry's coins - just swipe the mouse over them; you also sometimes get scatterings of coins as bugs are killed. 3. There are new 'special weapons' in addition to the bomb, spring etc: hailstones, freezes, mini tornados, and a strange green smoke that - if you plant it just past a few weapons - causes some bugs to turn around and walk into the weapons fire again. If you liked Garden Rescue, you'll love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Love this game! I bought this game not having known about Garden Rescue. Now I have, and love, both games. 'Next best things to Plants vs Zombies, I say. The 'creatures' in Xmas edition are adorable and funny; nevertheless I shoot 'em! I've played each Garden Rescue version more than a few times and I'm still not 'good enough' to get far as "Sargeant" or above level. "Private" I shall happily stay until I manage to figure out the higher levels of play. The 'music' leaves much to be desired so I just use the sound effects. Thanks for a great game! I hope Garden Rescue III comes along soon. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tower Defense Game I thoroughly enjoyed this game and wish there were more like this one. I also enjoyed the game variation they threw in every so often where the towers were limited to specific types and accessed at random intervals. Nice changeup. Well worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Game If you enjoyed the original "Garden Rescue" then odds are that you'll enjoy "Garden Rescue: The Christmas Edition" as well -- if not more so. The little pests in their winter garb (scarfs, knit caps, sweaters, etc.) are a hoot. Although the game layouts, music and tactics are similar to the original version, there are plenty of new additions such as mouse-over coin pickups, and several new "booby-traps" and such. Both the original game and the new Christmas edition are basically tower defense games, so if you enjoy that genre then you ought to at least give this game a try. The three levels of difficulty available means that everyone from the novice to expert can find this game to be an enjoyable and challenging experience. Folks who like their games to be more on the serious side will probably find this game to be too silly -- but if you don't mind some silliness and humor, and you enjoy the tower defense format, then I suspect you will thoroughly enjoy "Garden Rescue: The Christmas Edition."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Festive Fun This is the Christmas version of the Garden Rescue tower defence/ strategy game. The game developers haven’t reinvented the wheel with this game, just put a festive spin on the game with a few tweaks here and there to make things interesting. I especially love the coin collecting system that they have implemented - great improvement. The graphics are bright and cheery, music fitting the seasonal theme and the festive costumes the bugs/attackers wear are fun. For those that are new to the Garden Rescue game or new to tower defence/strategy games in general this is a good game to start as there is a good tutorial guide. Loads of achievements to collect and upgrades and prizes too. If you are in the mood for a bit of holiday fun then give this game a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Havent played the first Didn't play the first one but thought I'd try this. If you enjoy Tower Defense/Strategy Games then you'll probably like this. I tried it solely on the fact that it is Tower Defense and loved it. Around lvl 9 is when it actually starts to get challenging but I will probably buy it after my 1 hour is up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tower Defense Winter Version This is a tower defense game in which you have to defend your Christmas Trees from an onslaught of bugs. Lots of levels (sorry, forgot to count them and my free trial has just finished, so I can't go back) with increasing difficulty. In a nutshell this game is the same then its prequel "Garden Rescue". The layout of the levels are slightly different, Some of the bugs in the winter edition wear knitted woolly clothes which is really cute and I have observed that the ones wearing knit wear are slightly stronger than the ones who take the brunt of the freezing conditions. The game really is great fun, but optically nothing much has changed, apart from that you know defend Christmas Trees instead of strawberries, some of the bugs come dressed and landscape is a winter scene with snow and ice. The music is exactly the same than in Garden Rescue and I really think it is a shame that the developers didn't make the effort to treat the player to some Jingle Bells. After all they called it 'Christmas Edition' themselves. So I think this would have been a nice touch. Don't expect lots of action. This is a tower defense game and all you do is to strategically place weapons, which are also exactly the same than in the first game (corn shooter, pea shooter etc). After that you watch and observe to see if your tactic works and if it doesn't you have the opportunity to intervene by adding a weapon or some of the traps you can collect along the way. I am not yet sure if I will buy this edition, because I already own the first one and this is purely down to the lack of effort to make this edition a touch more Christmassy by using more appropriate music and changing the weapons to e.g. needle spitting pine cones and snowball throwing elves. However, I did rate it five out five on everything, because it is a great tower defense game whether or not it meets my expectations regarding music and weapons. I can highly recommend it but try before you buy, especially if you never played a game from this genre. A Happy Christmas 2012 and a great New Year to everybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Addictive I like the first Garden Rescue well enough and I really think this one keeps up to the same standards. It is just cuter. The bugs in their winter clothes is funny. It is a good game for all ages, kids and adults. The music wasn't annoying like it sometime can be in some arcade games. I will put this on my list of must have games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the first - and that's saying something! I loved the first Garden Rescue game despite the fact that I'm not much of an arcade game fan. This one is even better. It's strategy and "time-management" oriented like the first and plays very much the same. However, there are new bonuses in this version that are great improvements over the first game in the series. Fun and addictive! It's a buy for me.
