This game is filled with bugs. most can be worked around. i've already invested 20+ hours. Really confusing at first since there is a lack of a real tutorial. There are scenarios, but only one map. The key is to save and save often cause the game will randomly crash. 95% of the time it will be raining so alot of crop can't grow to effecent quanities due to the field being to humid. If you enjoy trying to figure out games that have very low details of what stuff does and you enjoy working with bugs (such as the new simcity) then you will enjoy the game, atleast til it crashes and you realise you havn't saved it for 1/2 and hour and you have to redo a ton of stuff.

This game is awesome! There is some issues with crashing, but there are work arounds for this. You just need the patience to fiddle around with it for a while. For me it worked when I deleted all the scenario saves. It works perfectly now, and trust me, it took quite a while to figure out!

Even with the bugs, it's worth the price. It's realistic, absorbing, and though the tutorial could be better, it's pretty easy to learn and once you do, it's really fun. Build your buildings, decide if you want to buy or raise your supplies, whether you want to sell live animals or raw products and sell them or if you want to process them first... But remember, the more you have, the more you have to manage... Even if you're just growing crops, you have to watch the water, ph levels, your machinery maitenence... Where you buy your land affects those all...

If you love farming, or sim games, or both, you'll love this.

I've been playing this sim for a couple years on Windows XP and now the gold version on Windows 8. I've never had any crashes or issues. This is a sophisticated micro-management game that looks really nice. There is a lot to plan, buy/sell, build, and do on the farm. You need to layout fields, seed crops, fertilize, water, harvest, care for animals, make deliveries, etc. This is a true sandbox and every little bit is up to you. If you like Railroad Tycoon, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Transport Giant, etc., you'll probably enjoy this game.

Can you get past the crashes? If not, sorry, it's likely nothing will get done about it.

If you can, has interest for sometime. A few glitches but not game shattering. Design leaves you click-happy after awhile, get's to the point you can't be bothered. At $60m after a few hours, why would you?

And consider, at time of writing I am a 1200+ hr Farming Simulator 2013. I am a stayer. This is not an ADHD or twitchspeed teenager here.

The crashes. Did I mention them?

Insomnia, Actalogic, UIG.

'Nuff said.
