One of my all-time favorite time management games gets an update and, thankfully, hasn't changed the formula much. Sure we get new animals and we're playing on an island in the caribbean. There are even some areas that are accessible only by bridge. Fortunately, the developers didn't mess with the gameplay so Ranch Rush 2 remains faithful to the original. Barring for a moment that our heroine is a serious workaholic, Sara has decided her latest vacation spot would be a perfect place to expand her farming business. Crops include wildflowers, bananas, acai berries, oranges, pineapples and other common tropical fruits. Animals include peacocks, goats and those annoying chatterbox llamas. Apparently other players hated those things as much as I did so these have been "de-barked" to some extent (believe me, I wanted to do worse). You'll also need to prepare fruit wraps, pomegranate juice, ice cream, and more. I hate the carpal-tunnel inducing clickfests that make up the majority of time-management games but I absolutely love the strategic planning in this game. A professional critic might whine about it being a lot like the original. What do they know? If it ain't broke, don't fix it (and if you do, the toolbox costs $100). It's actually a little bit easier in casual mode than the original so I'd probably recommend this game first to a new player. The trophies, on the other hand, are a little more difficult to complete. Highly recommended.

A game with the island atmosphere is great. I like how the game continues from one game level to the next. The animation is good. One thing I find in games of time management is the whole screen isn't available, so you have to pan right, left, up, or down. Overall it is a fun game.

I prefer Ranch Rush 2 for one major reason-I could shrink the screen so I could see the whole "Ranch". RR1 took up more than one screen and scrolling from one to the other is a pain. I liked the variation of products, too.

Every bit as good as the first! Many TM games limit your options so much that you really don't have options. You can play this game over and over trying different layouts and strategies to improve your time. Also, it is possible to finish. I'm probably not as fast as I used to be so I depend on strategy rather than speed. I get frustrated with games that require so much speed early on that I can never get past the first few levels. With Ranch Rush I can just redesign the layout and/or buy items I need to improve my speed rather than having a nervous breakdown and wearing out my clicker finger. Last but not least...when is Ranch Rush 3 coming out?!

I have been waiting for years for the 2nd edition of my favorite game, Ranch Rush to arrive! PROS: An upgraded and enhanced verision of the original storyline, with a lot of added bonuses. The fish game is a great addition! Make the farm your own, with new decorations! Helpful upgrades like storage, the ability to buy more soil at a time, more crates for harvesting. New animals full of personality, new crops and new products keep the game fresh. CONS: I'm really disappointed that we are required to pay more for the "Premium" version of the same game. The layout of the ranch leaves something to be desired. I hope I don't have to wait years for the next version to come out!

This game is fun, quick and addictive! It's fun to build the different levels and increase the involvement.

I like both of the Ranch Rash games. I think the 1st one is a little harder and the 2nd one is more fun and interesting. I like the added fishing game. It's simple and relaxing after all the "Rash" at the end of a "7-day" cycle - after 6 different level of similar mini games. The only thing I don't like is the layout of the land (screen). It is somewhat off. You cant' keep your "Ranch" nice if you want to beat the level/time with the layout given. I like neatly arranged "Ranch". I do like the ideal of bridges connecting lands though. So I still give 5 stars.

I really enjoy this game and would love to know if there are any others out there that are similar.

I liked this game, thought it ws good fun. made me giggle when sara got butted my a goat or bitten by a duck. some tasks are quite challenging and i had to keep pausing to re arrange the ranch to get through a level. only thin i didnt like about this game is that there is no restart level option, i had to continue through the whole level knowing that i wasnt going to pass it, was a little frustrating.

Great game! Couldn't stop playing it. It is easy to learn and very fast paced.

Purchased this game and decided to give it a try last night. I intended to only play for about half an hour and then go to bed. Well, let me say, that didn't happen! 4 hours LATER, I had to drag myself away to get some sleep. Really fun game! It seems very easy in the first couple of levels but soon becomes very challenging trying to manage your time. Challenging in a doable way though, not a frustrating throw your computer out the window type way. I really love that so many new things are constantly being introduced. The game never becomes repetitious or tedious because of this. I also like the zoom feature and that you can move your farm around. I have never tried Ranch Rush 1 before this but you can bet when I finish this one, I will be buying it now. All in all, great game! (This is now one of my fave TM games of all time)

I had this game for years, but when I cleaned my computer I lost it. So happy to have it back again. It's a great game, fast and challenging, I like the gardening and the animals. Coco the monkey is very cute. He goes and steals bananas when he doesn't have any, and those goats can be mean! Just over all I love Ranch Rush 2. Thank you, Annette

Me (a 20-something year old) and my 17 year old sister loves this game! It has been awhile since we finished the game but I really love the exotic fruits (acai berry anyone?) and animals. Some levels are pretty challenging too! I think it also has the right balance of clicking and strategizing what to do first (taking into account the time and how long something takes to grow, etc...). Would totally recommend this!

Once you start, you're hooked! Cute characters. Levels are tougher and makes you think. You have to rearrange, manage and sometimes have to repeat a level. But even repeating is not as frustrating as other games of the genre. It keeps you occupied longer than you think! Start and look at the clock, next thing you know an hour has gone by! Just wish it had more levels!!

Lots of fun for the kids. Cute creators. Good graphocs. Music was ok too and I do not leave it on very often. Grow, plant, gather and sell on a beautiful island get away with all you can do with your new land.
