This is one of those easy simulator/management games that actually work. Almost family friendly, just a simple game where you expand your "farming empire" creating new buildings, taking care of the employees and raising up the farm's economy. Interface is really important in games like this one, and I gotta say I love how Farming Manager does things. Easy, but still complex in some way. Probably the step between a casual strategy game and a hardcore one. If you are looking for something different but not that challenging this could be your title.
My biggest gripe with the game is that it auto pauses at certain points and is very often impossible to un-pause so that you must save, exit to main menu and load the game to continue playing. The game is very simple rinse and repeat formula that would work well on a tablet for people who do not want a complex game. The game mechanics are clicktastic, click the field, click the activity you want, click and drag the worker/equipment to the box, and finally click OK. Practically everything in the game is done by clicking with the mouse. You can move the camera, rotate buildings when placing, or open the map with the keyboard. All other menu based activities (read all other activities) are mouse based. This would not be so bad if they implemented keys to close to to accept, close, or tab between menus. This is especially annoying when trying to sell crops or check prices as with these menus one has to be closed before the other can open. I found it to be not nearly as good as Farming Giant. It did however, only crash once in 12 hours of play. Farming Giant would CTD at least every 30 minutes for me.
