The women pictured don't appear until almost an hour into the game; the only people who appeared were these obnoxious characters based on... I don't know who or what. The hidden objects were the easiest I've ever seen in a game that I'd paid for - this game should've been free. Tasks appear out of nowhere and are effortlessly performed with a click. My title said it all...I'm disappointed but I was forewarned as to the simplicity of the HO by previous reviewers, if I remember correctly. I'm usually very pleased with the Gamehouse games that I've purchased.
I like the new theme of this one compared to the original. I love winter. The game itself is a good mix of hidden object and farming sim or time management. The story, graphics, sounds are all wonderful. I usually like more cartoony graphics like Brunhilda and the dark crystal, but these graphics are nice. I also like how you have a bit of freedom as to which hidden object scene to play, instead of following a rigid plot that so many hidden object games use. The puzzles aren't too hard, and you can skip them, which i always appreciate in games. The characters are memorable and likable, so you can get drawn into the game. One of my favorite games. :)
This game has many puzzles which I loved, but I have to admit I couldn't do most of the electrical puzzles. I was wishing I could get some hints so that I could figure them out. But you can skip the puzzles you can't do and it doesn't cost you that much. I enjoyed this game so much I went back and bought the original Farmington Tales but it bored me, not enough different kinds of puzzles.

This was just as great as the first one. Wished it had been longer but I like really long games.

Normally I do not like HO games without a story, but this game was delightful. I had to get used to a different way of playing from the normal HO game which has a storyline to follow. At first, I was not sure of even how to play it. After the initial startup woes of figuring out what to do - it was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it and it is also better than other games similar to this that I have played in the past.

No instructions included; therefore, I did not pick up on the side issues such as how to organize the market, what to do with the farm, etc. Hidden objects were no problem but when my box was filled with tetris-like pieces, what to do then?

This game is great! Really clever HO scenes with optional goals to go for at all times, bonus gems to find, and very pretty winterey scenes. Between each scene you get to fix up the farm sorta Farmville style. You can plant tons of different crops, sell items and crops in the market, take care of the farm animals, etc. There are also tons of extra trophies to get. Fun game!

Like its predecessor, this is a simple HO game. You find items to sell, and you also have to take care of the farm, watering, planting, etc. There are several different types of minigames, but you have to play them over and over with slightly more complications each time. It took me six weeks to complete the game because after a few levels I would become incredbly bored and set it aside. I didn't like the winter version as much as the original summer version, but both of them to me are more than a little monotonous. However it's a pleasant enough HO if you like this style. It's certainly suitable for young children.
If you enjoyed the first Farmington Tales game, you're going to love this follow-up of the first one. In this game, the farmer is on vacation so a female is running the farm with help from a guy who claimed to know all about running a farm but in reality doesn't know a thing about farming. The farmer and his wife eventually have to return to the farm to help them out. You do the same things in this game that you did in the first game with the exception that now there is snow on the ground. You still have livestock to feed and sell, crops to sell that you grew in the first game, and hidden objects to find in the same locations. Being a retired farm wife, these are the same things that I experienced on the farm in eastern Iowa during the winter on the farm ... look for animals that broke through a fence and are running lose in a field (I had to do this at least once a month or more on the farm and we do this in this game as well), feed the livestock in the snow (they need a bit more during the winter), there are repairs to make and as in the last game, you do this by completing a mini game that are challenging but not impossible, and more. Our 7 year old granddaughter who lives with us but has never lived on a farm, enjoys playing both versions of Farmington Tales as well. We have to read to her what she has to look for but she finds the objects better than I do and she's very good at solving the mini games. As a born city slicker turned farm wife who is now retired, I suggest that you try this game whether you have farm experience or not. As I said in the beginning of this review, I'm confident that you'll enjoy this game. The music still has a country sound and is very appropriate and for me is enjoyable which is rare for me.

If you’re dreaming of a winter wonderland, here it is. The snow is falling (but you can turn it off and on), and the beautiful graphics make the snow cover in the outdoor scenes look so real that you might think you’d like to build a snowman in between farm chores. The voice-overs are excellent and the storyline is unique. The same familiar characters and the farm from the first game are here, but there are changes in store for Dahlia Farms. There are so many things to do in this game that it can be really challenging, or you can choose not to play some of the puzzles or quests and just have a very relaxing game. However you do play it, it’s a very long game and lots of fun, and it can be replayed and enjoyed again and again. I hope there will be a Farmington Tales 3 in the near future!
If you played the original Farmington Tales then you will be pleasantly surprised that 2 picks up where the other left off. They both are just wonderful games. The object is to raise money to save the farm. This is accomplished by playing HO games that earn you money and selling crops from your farm in the market to raise money. With your money you then shop in the store to purchase items for the farm such as new buildings, barns, animals, crops, etc. There are also some time management aspects in the game as well in the form of collecting and watering crops and setting prices in the market for the items that you sell. The game also has several different mini games that you play. There are trophy's to be won, several different cursor options, wall papers, and the games are available to play separately, plus the in game dialog between the characters are filled with humor. All in all this is a game with depth and something in it for everyone.
