About the Game

Tractors And Farm Machines Get Your Farm Up And Running

The PC simulator "Professional Farmer 2014" takes the player to the countryside and gives hobby farmers full control in the comfort of their home. Farm management, cultivating fields, planting crops, animal husbandry and buying and selling produce are just a few of the major game elements this simulator offers.

Starting out with a small estate, the player begins their career as an up-and-coming farmer and little by little acquires new fields, tractors, machines and animals, and can either specialize or make use of all options that farming has to offer. The key to success lies in good planning by season, expert knowledge that you acquire throughout the game, and skill and good old-fashioned hard work. As a farmer, the player learns to live with the forces of nature, accept the weather and respond so as to perfect the yield from fields, care for the animals and prepare the budget for new investments. Many tractors and farm machines (combine harvesters, field choppers, attaching parts and trailers, etc.) by renowned manufacturers are available to cultivate the farm and manage all the work. Only good planning and hard work will turn fallow earth into a flourishing and fertile soil. Of course, you can drive and control all machines yourself, be it hooking up the plough, re-filling the tractor or unloading the harvest.

"Professional Farmer 2014" has a broad variety of crops, depending on the environment and climate, with which the farmer can cultivate the fields diversely, effectively and with a high yield. Even crop rotation plays an important role in planning! The integrated seasons influence the game and provide the player with a constant stream of tasks and jobs.

The local farmers market is your first stepping-stone to success! After just a short time, you should take our home grown and harvested produce to the market and earn your first money by selling it. As you sell more, you will soon see more and larger machines in your fleet and be able to grow larger quantities of produce. Gradually, you will even be able to construct new buildings and acquire new fields.

Features

  • For the first time ever in a farming simulator: Different seasons and yearly planning
  • Countless original tractors
  • Campaign mode contains a plethora of missions for hours of engrossing fun. It has it all, from short tasks to extensive missions

Still no change even with the new US map and equipment addon having finally been released, the object loading bug that causes lag every 10 to 15 seconds persists. Back when I preordered this, it seemed like UIG had smartened up and changed their ways, but it's still business as usual for them. They have a semi-good game here, but instead of properly fixing it, after a couple months they walked away, tossed it in an indie bundle, and now have released an addon that by the sounds of it doesn't work for lots of buyers.

Really wouldn't mind Giants and their Farm Simulator titles finally having a competitor, but as-is, this can't be seen as one.

Hours and hours of going up and down in fields! What more could you want....maybe if the game would actually work!

First of all this is the first time i have ever bought a farming simulator so I haven’t got much to compare it with.

The first hour you play is jaw dropping. You got spawned into your lovely farm. complete with a chicken coop stone sheds and a house. I think the whole place looks great! really well designed and created. Then you turn a corner and then say "oh my god! It’s a TRACTOR" you hit the shift key to put your heavy booted farmer into a over excited sprint, get up alongside, hit the enter key and fire her up! You hook up a plough and then out the road to one of your fields for a fantastic day of ploughing!

Unfortunately this excitement is very short lived......
After about an hour of playing you start to realise that there is one or two things a miss. After the 5th hour most people will surmise that there has been a HUGE amount left out of the game. To name but a few;

No Workers. Just mythical pixies that magically transform your fields from different states with only a mouse click...There is uproar about this...
You can spend 4 hours preparing fields for harvest only to skip to the next round to find that all your fields have been completely wiped clean. "No Christmas this year kids...we have been hit by some plague?"
Loading a trailer with bales of hay is nearly impossible. The physics is just all wrong
The map is huge. I mean its whopper big! But it takes about 7 days to get anywhere!

It is obvious that this game was rushed and incomplete. I think that it is appalling that this game wasn’t properly tested before launch. It’s a rip off.

I could go on and on. But it’s all been said before.

I urge you to check out the forums before you pay for this!!!

For now i cant recommend this game... Its just stupid that the maker of this game had released this game very to quick..
The game wasnt finished when it was released.. Really a shame!!.
The game have to much bugs in it, vehicles / equipment selling / buying goes on a very poor quality menu..
It could be like more on Farming simulator 2011 / 2013.. I have all the three games so i can give my opinion on this game..
FS 2013 looks in quality more better, but its getting to boring soon.. Dont like the system of buying seed in FS2013, cant upgrade the silos in FS2013, graphics in FS2013 looks to kiddy to me( i like to see more realism in graphics)
So PF2014 have quality items in it: Buying seed, Buying manure, you have a shed to store bales in it. I like that the vehicles are washable, and that you need to buy a big stock of petrol on the gas station to refill the gastank on your farm... Those things make a farm sim more enjoyable.. FS2013 is just boring on the longer playtime, dont like the mods on FS2013.. They make the game less quality (because there is no standard that people need to guide to.) Then you getting bad quality mods in the game... So overall its an ok game if you look to the basics... But its needs more improvement and bug fixes..
So i cant recommend it for now.. UIG isnt very help full on their forums.. Trying to get my account enabled.. PMed Heini two times, looks like they blind or so.. So they arent customer minded..

DO NOT BUY this game. Remember this. The game has potential and is fun for some time, some thing are done really good. The farming is more enjoyable than FS2013, tractor controls are more realistic, physics are better and it has seasons. The map is better, you don't feel so alone. But everything is not done properly and lacks something. Feels like beta.

Graphics - it would be good if it would support anti-aliasing and the bloom would be lower. Objects, trees are popping everywhere. sometimes graphics looks very nice. Morning or evening really looks amazing.

Gameplay - it gets boring fast, because there's nothing more to do except for plowing/seeding/harvesting. There are animals but you can't interact with them, they just exist and give you some money. Aaaaand there are bugs. Career objectives sometimes do not register when you do them, so either do them again or load the game. And the interface.....all the tractors and equipment are in one place, there are no categories, you need to scroll through everything if you want to find something you need.

And the WORST thing. DEVELOPERS ARE CHARGING FOR THE PATCH. Yes for the patch, not ADD-on or DLC but P-A-T-C-H. Soooo if you didn't bought the DLC you do not get the patch for the whole game. And there's absolutely no communication and support from the devs, they just don't care. Please do not support them, do not buy their products.
