Ok, so this game has the odd issue with crashing, for the scenarios delete the pre-loaded saves then they work fine, then the other odd random crash issue is solved by saving often.
Another issue is that there's no vehicle to transport sugar processed from your sugar factories, so as a result you cannot make cakes at your bakery. when Olive's have grown from your orchards you have to send the olives straight to either the city to sell, or an olive press to turn it into oil or pitted olives sadly the barn or a silo won't accept them for some reason. I would personally also like it if the chilled storage allowed you to store milk.
There are not many farming simulators from a business point of view out on the market, so if the above issues were addressed this game would be perfect. It does take a little extra patience to put up with the crashing but sometimes you can tell its going to happen (sometimes you will notice the game "Lag" a little when running x3 speed, that's your cue to save the game as it will crash in a few seconds).
There is plenty of different crops to grow, animals to breed, and you earn achievements which you can spend on the skill tree to boost many different things, driver speed, growth rate of certain crops, breeding rates, have your buildings use up less water/electric. you can build your own wind turbines and solar panels and eventually build a bio-gas plant to turn manure and corn into electric!
There are two game modes, scenarios with pre determined objectives and campaign, campaign is a free play mode where you have to "level up" to unlock crops/animals and buildings, however the achievements earned, and your level are saved so if you start a new campaign map you don't have to climb the ranks again! so its great if you fancy a fresh start but don't wish to lose your level.
I apologise for the rambling, I just wanted to write my own little review on this game as while yes it has bugs, but hey a lot of games do -cough EA cough- it's defiantly worth the price and worth it even better in a sale.
