Really Cool!

This game is definitely not for anybody. It plays at its own relatively leisurely pace and is easy to get into not for action freaks. The game runs great on my Win7 system I haven't encountered any bugs in hours of gameplay. I found the graphics and sounds very pleasant, but the interface is not intuitive or handy because it's kept out of sight most of the time you'll have to press keys repeatedly to bring up certain info on the screen, which I found annoying. Aside from that only gripe, I found the controls of the many vehicles good and easy to learn. Running the farm is fun and relaxing, with lots of stuff to do once you have several fields going (you'll have to hire some workers to keep up). You can also change the game speed and enable/disable missions (mowing grass pays off) at anytime during gameplay, or download a free ATV to drive around at high speed. Really enjoying this game a totally different experience from anything else I've played on the PC.

Pretty good for a farming sim

Cooberstooge | Aug. 7, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »

Granted, there's not too many of these out there for this one to be graded against, but Farming Simulator 2011 is a pretty solid entry. No bugs to be seen, and an entire valley to roam and work in, makes this a very viable alternative to good ol'SimFarm.

There are piles of different vehicles to use, and you can hop out of one and into another nice and quick. There's enough here to let you correctly plant and harvest several types of crop, and see it all the way through to market.

The game runs fairly well, but is pretty demanding, so those of you barely meeting the minimum requirements would be best to crank the settings down first and work your way up from there. The game looks great maxed out due to that, and seeing the changing times of day while you're working is pretty awesome.

The workers you can hire sometimes come with extremely low IQ, though, which can be a bit of a pain. Working the land on your own is usually best, and completely doable, so that's what I tend to stick with.

Highly recommended, for something that's different, and a solid contender, at that.

Very boring

I know I'm not the target audiance for the game but it is extremely boring. The hired help AI is fairly brain dead and the game is full of glitches. Don't buy it unless you really want to try it. Even then tho I would watch some videos on it first to make sure.
