After 5 hours into this game, the first thing I can say about this game is that this is not a SIMULATOR. The name should be "Woodcutter: The Arcade Game 2013".
Why ? Because all you have to do in this game is accept the mission : go to the spot highlighted on the minimap, place yourself in front of tress and press "SPACE". That's all !
Why should we watch an automated sequence (always the same, and often buggued) for almost 45 SECONDS ! And that's not the worse, the physic model is just hilarious, step on a dead tree and you can fly up to 45 meters ! The drive experience is just as hilarious as in farming simulator, but worse. You can pass through every element (even tress !) except houses. There's no AI traffic, no humans in town or in manufactories. This game is a total deception for me (even tutorials aren't working, I only have a video with no sound at all...)
So, I DO NOT recommend this game for the moment. I do not know if developpers want to patch the game, but for now, it's just disappointing.
Dear developpers, if you can read me, please patch your game.
> Allow us to really cut the trees (no QTE, thanks)
> Allow us to buy some lands or build some constructions (houses, manufactory...), like in farming simulator. I just want my own land to manage my little forest, take trees to my manufactory, and making some furniture or matches with it and sell it to another player (or to AI in solo game).
> Add AI pedestrians, vehicles and life to your game. Solo mode is like walking in a ghost town.
To finish, I want to add that I've not tried the multiplayer game. But by judging the solo mode, I do not see that this mode provides.
