First In-Game Adventure: You start out as a random guy with a chainsaw standing in front of a house and you see that you are next to three recycle bins. You wonder who you are and how you got there, and why you are standing next to three recycle bins. You see a tree and you decide you want to cut it down. You run up to it in super lag at 1fps and try to stick the chainsaw which you don’t know how you got into the tree. You try to start the chainsaw but it says you are holding the chainsaw in the wrong position. So you give up and decide to explore. But then, all of the sudden, you feel the need that you need to cut down some trees. You have no way of getting this information, you just know in your mind that you must cut down three trees. So you decide to cut down these trees and you realize that you can run faster sideways than you can forwards. You don’t know why, you just do. In your head you visualize a map. You have no way of getting this map, you just picture it (in the top-right corner of your screen). You run to this place where you feel the trees are and you magically stop. You have reached the end of the world. Small world right? Then you turn around and you see a hideous, very scary sight. You see…a mountain that is literally covered in trees!!! Then you see a crane and decide to jump in it so that you don’t have to look at that hideous mountain anymore. You don’t know how you got in it or what you pressed, but you’re magically in the crane. You can’t get out. You’re stuck. The game is over.

Second In-Game Adventure: You start out as a random guy with a chainsaw standing in front of a house and you see that you are next to four recycling bins. You once again wonder who you are and how you got there, and why there are now four recycling bins. Maybe the garbage man came and dropped off another one? These questions remain in your head leaving you in confusion. You see a tree once again and you decide you want to cut it down. You think that maybe this time the chainsaw will actually start…You thought wrong. Once again the chainsaw doesn’t move. You decide that maybe this tree just has problems and doesn’t like you so you decide to run away from this tree that doesn’t seem to like you and you run up a hill. You then remember that you can run faster sideways than you can forwards. You don’t know why, you just do. So you awkwardly run sideways until you come to another tree. You think that this one looks more friendly and will want to be your friend so you can cut it down…You thought wrong. As soon as you get up to the tree and raise your chainsaw, the tree pulls you into it. You don’t know how, since you were standing about 5 ft. away from the tree. How can this be? You are stuck with these puzzling questions waiting to be answered. Anyway, the tree pulls you into it and you go into the tree. You don’t know how, all you know is that you are now inside the tree. But then, things get much more scary. You then fall out of the tree and start falling into a world of whiteness. You look up and you can see that you have fallen out of the world. You can see the bottom of the world fading as you fall farther and farther into the world of whiteness. You look down into the whiteness. It looks very…white. But then, as you start to think that things can’t get any worse…You thought wrong. Black and white lines cover up your screen. Everything fades. The game crashes. You are back at your desktop. Worst simulator game ever…

In this game, you have to fell trees. Lots of them. Initially with a chainsaw. For each tree, you need to watch a minute (60 seconds) of unskippable animation that is the same every time, accompanied by cheesy "best of telephone hotline" synth music. This game is making me lose my will to live.

You'll be bored to tears before you earn enough money to buy the more interesting equipment, and there's no guarantee the boredom will stop even then. I haven't gotten that far yet.

Other "features" include
* plenty of invisible walls
* water that doesn't actually do anything (who needs bridges)
* shoddy modeling (saw one house sunk into the ground up to the windowsills)
* shoddy forests, looks more like trees stuck on a meadow than natural growth
* does not actually simulate woodcutting, merely animates it
* walking is faster than driving
* the game gives you hours to complete tasks done in minutes
* glitches galore (autojumps high when running over small obstructions, saw sound continues when going to the pause menu, sun still makes shadows when set and below the horizon, you can fell yellow-banded trees anywhere, not just where your mission says you should - just keep felling in the forest you're in, game puts you in the car no matter where it is - leave cars at different points on the map to travel quickly, van drives 70 km/h over any type of terrain).
* more boring than any truck simulator in existence

Woodcutter Simulator doesn't actually simulate woodcutting. The "tree radar" is ridiculous, the chainsaw felling technique is downright dangerous (always cut with the side of the saw, never the tip; do remove the wedge after cutting it; the wedge cut should only cut 1/3 to 1/4 of the diameter into the tree; the back cut needs to be at least 1 inch higher than the bottom of the wedge), and the direction the tree falls in bears no relation to the direction of my cut (I've had some trees fall towards me, even). Falling trees can't get stuck on other trees, and there would be no way to free them if they did because you can't fell trees the game doesn't let you (another indication that this is not a simulator).

I recommend this game to people who enjoy the feeling of having wasted their money, or who like to show off to others what truly boring games they own. Everyone else, don't buy at any price.

Going outside and watching the gras grow will be a better use of your time than seeing badly modeled trees fall in badly done "simulation".

This game is... meh. Not really even a game and glitchy as hell. 2/10 for decent music.

Pros: Ok soundtrack and the visuals are adequate for a game of this sort.

Cons: Horrible button mapping, simulated cutting of trees is boiled down to one button press, and hit boxes for lakes/buildings/etc is stupid.

Also I totally launched myself into space by walking over a tree and landed back down without injury. Real life simulation FAIL!

To all those who are unable to get this game to run, consider yourselves extremely lucky! As is typical of most low-budget 'sims' these days, this game is absolutely unplayable, with no clipping, weird movements, no easily understood goals. It's utter junk.

What the ♥♥♥♥ is this ♥♥♥♥? I stand eagly in front of the dark barked tree, ready to cut it down, and show it who's boss.
Instead "You are not in the right position".
How can I possibly continue my life if I cannot even simply use a chainsaw to cut down a tree!
I'd like to thank Jesus, my mom and Pig for their guidance, but I have turned out as a failure.


♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ing piece of ♥♥♥♥ game i will slice your head into pieces using a ♥♥♥♥ing chainsaw you ♥♥♥♥♥

For now my opinion is a Negative one, because like many I can't run the game.

There is an interesting thing - on my personal PC which has Windows 7, it doesn't run - just the company logos, then crashes.Tried to apply the compatibility to a Windows XP SP3, same.

Tried to run it on the office PC which has Windows XP SP3, it runs!Well, because of the low specifications of the PC I can't play, but it runs.So... maybe that's the whole problem?

I'll be honest, initially I bought this game as a joke. I mean, how can a game simulating woodcutting be good? Amirite?

But when I loaded up this "♥♥♥♥ty" little woodcutting game I immediately felt like Judas was to Jesus. How could I hate and laugh at something so beautiful? The main menu is sublime, the quaint melody and the beautiful scenery made me feel like a child again. I shed a tear, called my family into the room and offered them the greatest pleasure of viewing this masterpiece alongside me. Of course, while initially sceptical they accepted.

Upon choosing the single player option you can choose to play either a tutorial or go straight into the main campaign. As I didn't want to keep my audience waiting I chose to jump right into the fray. It was nothing like I expected, there was no waking up, grabbing a cup of tea and calling the wife before setting out to chop wood. Your one and only goal was to chop wood meaning in a dark souls-esque style you wouldn't be able to prepare for the oncoming mission beforehand due to it's open world nature. I was beginning to feel foolish in front of my family for not choosing the tutorial but to my surprise it was all explained in game anyway! After being issued a mission "Kill 4 trees" a picture of a tree on the minimap directed me to my goal and I ventured to it on foot.

*30 minutes later*

After reaching the tree marker I was instantly admist a sea of trees larger than those seen during my adventure to the goal. This was the place, the place of do or die. Walking to my first cuttable tree (you can only cut trees with bands around, showing the care for enviornmental safety this game has - a vital feature to stop people imitating the game on any random tree) I pulled out my chainsaw and felt a thrill. This was my first kill. Watching the gruesome yet wonderful animation (lasting approximately 7 minutes) the tree had fell and disappeared but regardless of reasons my objective of killing four trees was marked "1/4". A wry smile and a strange bloodlust filled me as I continued towards the other trees. "2/4", "3/4", "4/4" and I was done.

I felt like a god returning to base. I held the fate of those marked trees and I could sense the fear within them. I killed a few more to make an example to those who would dare rebel, keeping my people (trees) safe from those anarchists. At that point I decided to turn off the simulator, for if I strike the wood too often my people would live in fear.

The true addiction to this God Simulator lies in the multiplayer. Will the kind, foolish god win the support of the people or will the more assured, logical god win the rise to power? Of course I already know the answer.

I don't want to rate this game as I no longer consider it a game. But to all who purchase it be warned for I am God in this world. Fear me. Loathe me. Envy me.

The good: It's first person
The bad: Boring! Game does most things for you, a lot of walking at the start.
Eventually, after a lot of hours when you can afford vehicles the game MIGHT be interesting. Otherwise it's just another buggy, rubbish simulator game.
