A fun farming simulator

I've always been interested in farming/agriculture so this was definitely a simulator that I was very excited for. I haven't played any other simulators so I can't comment on how it compares but I can say that I have had a lot of fun. You start out with a standard farm with 2 plots of farm-able land that you can upgrade as you go. You use Euros to purchase things which I thought was very cool because I'm an American so it was kind of fun to pretend I was working on my farm in Europe (just a nice touch). The controls can be a bit hard to work with, especially if you suck at using a kb/m like me but you get the hang of things pretty fast. There were a couple other things that I thought were pretty neat: 1) using the manure from your farm animals for your fields 2) the fact that the cars driving on the road wait for you to cross if you are on your tractor instead of driving through you or something else. 3) damage to your tractors (if you keep banging into things like me). Like another reviewer said, there is a lot of waiting so I usually watch TV while playing or something else and it works out nicely. Overall, a fun sim!

i have tried the farming simulator 2011. this one is by far way better then that. the graphics, the way you dont just randomly start out with vehicle you have to buy them, i think that this game would be a very good game if you are in to like farming and stuff.

This sim can be defined as a ton of waiting...and waiting..and just clicking. You don't do much at all, REALLY. You drive a tractor...around a pretty surreal farm and just..drive. You don't do anything else. sometimes..these actions take forever too.  And the visuals don't make up for it too, they are bland and boring. Soundtrack is equally as lame. No saving graces sadly. What I liked..was that the animals shake their ears. Pretty cute but not realistic enough. This doesn't even run in some of the highest resolutions...below average sims.

Unfortunately, one of the worst sims I've seen

This game attempts to follow in the path of such simulators as Flight Simulator X and Roller Coaster Tycoon, but ends up being vastly inferior. With outdated graphics, a horrible physics engine which sends farming equipment literally bouncing off of objects, poor sound quality, and a whole list of other problems, this is a disappointment. I bought this game thinking that it would be similar to the John Deere Drive Green game which I really love, but this just ends up being a mess of a copycat. Although it is playable, this game could have and should have been better.
