    Ranch Rush 2 - Sara's Island Experiment

    You start off with two difficulty options: Casual or Expert. The "Freeplay" option is only available in the Collector's Edition of this game. I chose Casual.

    Sara's been too busy being famous to actually get her hands in the dirt for quite a while. She's gone on an island vacation, but of course, all that tropical vegetation is just too tempting to miss, so she buys some land on the spot and starts growin'.

    Easy to learn, you can "stack" instructions - ie. click on the crates three times to pick up three, then click on three of the plant beds while you're still waiting for her to get the crates. You have to watch to make sure that your crops stay watered, lest you have to replant. There is also a monkey who will help you to obtain coconuts... as long as you bribe him with bananas Snicker

    The game starts off kind of slow, but things really get hopping once you get the goat. You'll have to gather the produce, bribe the monkey, collect crabs from the beach, water the garden plots and watch the goat steal your flowers and sneak into her pen to steal her milk while she's not looking. Starting at week three you get a juicer, too.

    Sara likes to go fishing on Sundays, so off she goes. The mini-fishing game is actually my favorite part of the game :Big smile: It's your usual sit-in-a-boat-and-cast-to-catch-fish game, but there are multiple-sized fish. Once you catch so-many small fish, you earn a new lure and can catch bigger fish, etc. Something else different is that once the fish breaks the water at the surface, you have to catch it in your boat. You might get a treasure chest bonus, too, always a plus, but watch out for the sting rays! They'll give Sara a shock!

    There are nine weeks to the game, and I finished week 2 with seven minutes to spare of my demo, so it's a decent length.

    The graphics are nice, and the music has a nice, tropical feel to it - about what you'd expect for this type of game. Sara's text dialog is also spoken, which is a nice touch.

    I think Time Management fans will enjoy this game, especially if they liked the first Ranch Rush :thumb:
