Like all UIG products there are some great ideas here but the execution is sorely lacking. Nearly all of their games feel rushed to market with very little play testing for bugs and once they are on the market there seems to be little to no support from this group. As for this title? I like the idea behind this game but it is no different than any other released by this group. It plays very much like a meaty version of the old 90s versison of Sim Farm and it could be a decent game if it were properly fixed and updated. But as it stands it has a very flimsy tutorial that doesn't tell you much, the game is prone to crashing (the dev will tell you it's your fault despite it being a constant complaint online by many people), the mechanics stop working within the game often (things stop working, machines stop working for no reason, etc), and the game takes micro-managing to the extreme. Not only do I NOT recommend this title but I very strongly do NOT recommend this title or any other title from UIG. (and I own quite a few from this group over the years)

The tutorial is one bug after another,i cant complete it,Its a tutorial that you can only complete if you know how to play the game,get your head around that.I only took the plunge because it was on sale for change that fell down the couch,Avoid otherwise,The sad thing is it really had potential for being a great game,either the devs were lazy or just incompetant.

Just beware - if you do buy this wanting a quick (cheap) play - (I don't think you'll get it). Maybe my game is broke?

Talk about not giving you a chance! This game isn't working, the tutorial says to click a button yet does not show you which button to click!

Then the game does not aknowledge that you already bought a forage wagon, claiming there are no vihicles in your garage. I only assume, that's where the forage wagon is supposed to be, since that where the tutorial had me click to purchase it and then it shows the icon for the forage-wagon along with the tractor and truck that I purchased at the same time.. So what the --- hay..yy?

So, where is it? Tutorial has left me high and dry.. I don't have the time to waste - experimenting just yet to find out what to do and this games tutorial has annoyed me intensely. Now I'm grumpy and bored with this game.. Shame because I was looking forward to this...

Farming Giant is a great game with hours of fun. I have played for over 165 hours. I was getting lots of crashes until I deleted 90% of the old quicksaves in the farming giant save game folder.

Since the deletion the game has not crashed again.

Setting the game to high speed makes alot of bugs. All the fields become grassed over, as I think the game struggles to update the field order menu's.

It does become tiresome to build yet another Cow Byre and set up the deliveries, but if you play for an hour a day it is manageable.

I find the field management tedious. I have never been able to setup automated spraying and fertilizing. It always seemed to go wrong.

A good read is the guide How to Avoid the Issues. I have experienced some of these issues myself.

I think it is a good 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.

I was very excited to play a game like this one but the GAME DOESN'T WORK. Many people including me have crash problems and there is no update fixing it. I bought and could only play 0,6 hours before it bores me with many crashes and bugs. Dont buy!

Once again Steam has released a game that was not ready to play on Steam. I requested "tech support" thru Steam and they granted me an audience 2 weeks later with the standard remove the game then re-download, etc. etc and obviously didn't read my ticket that I carefully typed out to them explaining exactly what it was doing and what the problem was. This game is buggy as hell (before Steam got a hold of it), and they had to have known it was going to be a problem based on the reviews of this game online. Add that to completely incompetant and nonexistant tech support via Steam and you have a waste of money on your hands. There is a group out here on Steam warning people about Steam's refusal to stand behind the games they sell, nor give refunds, nor give store credit, etc. We need to join together with groups like this to demand Steam take better care of its customers and starting appreciating our $ and act like a real store.

The potential is there for being a great sim, but the fact none of my accumulative orders ever actually "accumulate" means that they all fail. That combined with no in or out of game wiki means I can't look up on why things aren't working. Needs some patches before properly playable I think.

This game is out since 2012, but has so many bugs which really kills the game. Crashing every now and then (found solution in forum saying to remove water and workers from building / field before changing anything = worked ). but then there is problem with cars, time to time they decide to stop moving for no damn reason. Definetly not recomended to pay for this game ....

It's a broken sandbox. If you can get passed the bugs (a feat in itself), you'll discover a faux-business sim with no intrinsic complexity saddled with a meaningless progression treadmill. Don't be fooled by the veneer of potential; this game will never be patched into desirability, or likely ever again.

-Not Recommended Title-

By the look of the screenshots and description of Farming Giant - I thought I'd purchased a great little game. Unfortunately, like so many others, I had a very bug ridden experience...which was a real shame. I've tried the game on Windows XP, 7 and 8.1. Still no luck in having a game without a crash or lock. The gameplay was ok as were the visuals, yeah there could be more development done to it, but I purchased on sale, so I didn't have hugely high expectations.

It would be nice, if Farming Giant could be redux'd - in which case, I'd probably return it from my graveyard - and give it a go again.

It's up to you if you buy it - there is some fun to be had if you do.

Score: 4/10

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.

Very demanding CPU and video game ( Core 2 duo , GeForce 9600m 512m , 4 gigs ram ) punishing my computer , rendering is all low settings and its still choppy and slow ( any game that has fine detail imaging and can be zoomed way out is ussually very demanding on memory and cpu )

The minimum requirements on the game is misleading , 2,4 GHz Pentium and the recommended 3,0 GHz Pentium with a Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ( btw who runs a 3,0 GHz Pentium with a Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 together anyway , is that even possible ? )

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. Crashes before it even loads. Someone on the forums gave me a workaround to get it to load, but the mouse has a full second of lag and it's completely unplayable. Never buy a game without reading the forums -_- I got completely ripped off for seventeen bucks I'll never see again. I would have had more fun throwing it off a bridge.

It looked like it was going to be fun, but to many issues with a "jumpy or jerky" mouse - Seemed to be no correction or adjustments could be made to fix this. And of course, STEAM was no help. I wasted my money - and I will not be buying other games for STEAM, since they do not care and will not refund. Even if you jump through all of there "SO-CALLED" hurdles. I had faith in STEAM, but well it is gone. So do not purchase this game - or you will be giving to their "fat pockets" just me. Out of 5 Stars - I rate it ----- NEGATIVE 5. JN
