Pretty good for a farming simCooberstooge | 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.

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.
