Vacation Adventures: Park Ranger 3 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Want To Be A Park Ranger! Really a permanent vacation!! I own and love all the Park Ranger games but this one not quite as much. My 2 dislikes with this one are 1) I hate snow, even in a game. I need color and that color-filled scenery, the sunny scenes - seems silly, I know, but the game isn't as appealing to me without these things. 2) Objects that were hidden in the snow were just outlines/transparent which made them so difficult (for me) to find. Very time consuming which led to just hitting the hint to be done with it. Gamers without 20/20 vision may have the same problem as I did.. However, I truly enjoyed the game and it seemed to have more mini games than the others and the games were a lot of fun. I found Park Ranger 3 to be more challenging than the others, too. I love all the detail and different activities the guests are enjoying. And the deeper into the park, the more beautiful it became. The little things going on in the background of each scene were really terrific. If you get caught up in the game, they are easy to overlook. So I always take time to see it all. One of the great features of this game is the use of real people. That makes it much more interesting IMO because the guests are all different and provide a realistic park adventure. I hope more Vacation Adventure games will be coming to us soon. Everyone can play, great family fun, very educational, I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Felt I was there! Park Ranger 3 was the first I've bought & played from this series & I LOVED it!!! Even though the people, animals, etc do not move, all the locations seemed very real, and I was really sorry when it ended. I'm going to get PR 4, then I may have to get 1 & 2!!! Such a great change from the sci fi type games that are becoming more common with so much darkness, goriness, unhuman characters etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOURS & HOURS OF FUN! I love everything about this game! The graphics are great... the mini games are fun and I have always loved the good ol' HOS with plenty of words, some with more than one step. If you like this try Cruise Director 1 & 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice change of pace and very therapeutic! Just completed the game, and as simplistic and basic as it was, this is one of the best games I've played all year. A format that may have seemed redundant but ultimately resulted in a well-organized, thought out, and very rewarding game. I got lots of gold stars and eagle eyes. Filled my cabinet full of souvenirs, too. High score with a lot leftover after buying the souvenirs. The artwork was rather great except that many of the items were so small it was hard to determine where to find them but I didn't use the hint button once. This took patience on my part. Loved the sound of the trash going into the recycling bin. Got all my wildlife and I took care of those first so that I didn't miss out on them before retrieving the last item in the list of hidden items to find. Also, if you missed out on getting all the trash, you can always go back and replay those segments. No voiceovers but great text. The characters were wonderful though--nice-looking even! So yes, this was a good change of pace for once. A very relaxing game; and I thoroughly enjoyed the puzzles and mini-games. I'm not a huge fan of jigsaw puzzles and one that was listed was entitled, the impossiblepuzzle. Spelled exactly as I have it. That required all of my patience and took time to do. It's a good thing this was not a timed game. My favorite task was the word search mini-games. The music was very pleasant but became distracting at times so I'd turn it down now and then. I'm giving this a low 5-star rating due to the many tiny items that were hard to detect. But in reality, that's what made this game challenging. However, I'm sticking with my rating. The fact that this is my first park ranger game and that it was rather old-fashioned, without demons and witches and ghosts, kidnapped children, murder, dreary and weary scenes, I would have to say bravo to the Casual Arts devs for creating it. And I look forward to playing more of this type. I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Although i haven't played the first 2 games i really liked playing this one! It was something that i had great fun in playing and i was sad when it ended. Some of the HOG part were challenging and i enjoyed the story line... can't wait to play the next one and obviously download numbers 1 and 2!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Park Ranger 3 Adventure Beautiful graphics, nice and relaxing music and a variety of mini-games make this HOG one of my favorites. I already have numbers 1 and 2 and this one I didn't have to try it before purchasing because I knew I will enjoy it. Please, keep the series coming!! Casual Arts did a great job!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great HOG I really love this game I like the type of game where you do not have an inventory or have to think very hard about what goes where. Most of the HOGs this website has had lately have been too involved so I cannot even just relax and play. The mini games in Park Ranger 3 are very good for the most part. These HOGs are usually pretty easy for my grandchildren, so we can even play together. Thank you for another basic game. Please bring on more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from let's go to the park!! the only drawback to this game that i can see is that you have a hard time finding items in the HO scenes because they are so small. they blend in well so it is a challenge but some things are just too small to find. very good when it comes to the challenge of finding items as the scenes encompasses a lot of different things to look at. long range scenes that may be the whole side of a mountain and items in the distance that you wouldn't normally think about. i just got new glasses and it made it a little easier to see, but i didn't have these with the 2nd game in the series. you will need good eyesight or a way to magnify it. it was still a fun game. you can go back and replay a level if you are not satisfied with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic game! I love this series! There's something just wholesome about these games. A good, honest HOG with a great soundtrack, fun scenes and a subtle pro-American tint. Very highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent #3 Great addition to the Vacation Adventures: Park Ranger Series. Enjoyed this one and look forward to more of the same. Nice to get away from the eerie, dreary. We need good fun in HO games. This one is great and not even a holiday one.
