Pros: It's a pretty straight forward game with control suggestions in the lower right corner, which I liked. It was a good click-then-achievement type game, especially where people are interested in linear goals and clear-cut objectives. I liked the wavy grass! The physics could be quite entertaining in the game. I count this as a pro because it provided some comic relief. Who knows where the tree's going next?!?! NO ONE!

Cons: The lighting at night was pitch black, which most games there's SOME lighting so you can make sure you're not walking into walls and stuff...I'd recommend a bit more ambient lighting. The controls could use a little work. My poor horse got stuck going in circles a lot. :( Poor horsie. I think if the vehicles didn't get stuck in a perpetual circle motion occassionally the controls would be just fine.

If you like cutting trees, this gamer does exactly what it says. It's a little different to get into, but once you do, it's pretty fun. The only drawback I have is its repetition. Other than that it's totally worth buying, especially if you love simulation games.

Good game and very neat graphics. I did found some minor bugs tho like the horse turning by itself and sometimes your character becomes invicible. but overall I would recommended since it's really realistic. They could cut down the vehicle's price a bit would help tho. But this game needs more vehicles, but other than that and very minor bugs the word itself is pretty realistic.

As I loaded my lip with Copenhagen and poured whiskey into my glass, I felt the hair on my face thicken. Long have I awaited the moment when I can become a true lumberjack.

Day 1 into my new profession was simple and yet ultimate bliss. I started it all off by picking up my trusty steed sprinkles. I assume I raised the horse however the whiskey had already began to run its course altering my thought process.
As we began our 35 yard adventure to the nearest tree I began to grow hair on my chest at the thought of my first kill.
Without further hesitation I spam every button, eventually finding my chainsaw, and cutting the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ down Gears of War style. Defeated at last, the monster fell.
The corpse, laying gently on the ground, was staring at me. With sap gushing out of its newly opened wound like a river after a heavy flood. I look back at it with nothing more than a grin, while the humming of my chainsaw was teeth rattling music to my ears. I couldn't hold back any longer I began to dismember him. Limb. by. Limb.

Day 2 basically the same thing but at this point I was already way too drunk to care about the minor details.

Day 3 i"m reely dunk lool

The game isn't "bad", but it's not the best thing I've ever played.
It has bugs, glitches and other stuff but it plays just fine. It just needs to be polished up. It is exactly how they describe it on the store page. You cut ♥♥♥♥ing trees.
If you want to support the game, buy it. If not, then don't. Simple.

I love playing simulation games. And I must say I had a great time with this game.
It kinda looks boring for some but for me it's not. It does what it say. You'll be in the woods and your life here is making your business using your environment. You'll use huge vehicles for your work. And I love the big open world.

If you're into forestry. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this game.
Not the best game, but it was fun, doesn't deserve the downvotes its getting.
It has pretty good graphics and sounds. The gameplay and the objectives of this game is just fine .

I like the environment of this game. Living in the woods, you will learn a lot about agriculture, building your business and stuffs like cutting trees. The game is OK, had some fun with it.

Guys, the idea is great, but... Please, try to test the game before releasing it. Especially, if it is not Early Access game. For the God's sake! Physics! How? Have you tried to tie the log to the horse? Have you seen, how it is looks like? If not - I suggest you to try it!

This is great game, if player is 5-6 years old. Other case, this is crap. First try i have feeling that what year is it? 1996, 2006, 2016. Published 2016, graphics kind of 2006, and game engine 1996. Don't waste your money for this, it needs major update before it's playable, and known UIG's strategy, that update will never come.

Dont buy it unless you like chopping trees down because thats what your going to be doing...
The idea is good now so far i have only played 3.7hrs of the game the lack of instructions didnt help when i first started but keep going you easily pick it up unless you get bored in the process.
Would i recommend this game ?
Well so far because its had so many negitive reviews am going give it a thumbs up based on it is what it is cutting down trees and expanding your company.
But the gameplay good be better.
I personally enjoy farming simulator 2015 the forestry aspect in that game i enjoy more than this so if you havent played that game do your history well before purchasing forestry 2017 as you may well be asking for a refund.
So i will give it a thumbs up nice idea could be better it is what it is chopping down trees and growing your company.

A few people complained that all you do is chop wood. That's kinda the whole point of the game. It delivers what it promises: Running a forestry business. It's like saying that fishing simulator involves too much fishing. I personally like this game a lot. I've already upgraded my horse to a peice of machinery and money started rolling in. I'm now saving for the next big upgrade.

I really don't get why so much hate on this game. It does what it says and does it nicely. The gameplay is smooth enough, graphics aren't top notch but not ugly or outdated as people say it is.

You get to experience a perfect one kind of simulation:
You got to take care of a forest and its differnt types of trees. Master using the machines and the money available will INCREASE a lot, helping you out on the economy side of the game. There is a nice bunch of tools and machines - from chainsaws to harvesters, cranes, trucks or tractors - at your disposal, you tend to orders and try to max your skills within different areas of the gameplay.

The world where you play cicles day and night, which end to be two total different styles of play in my opinion. Concerning the graphic design of the game, I found the HUD very easy to understand and use. It is my first time playing this type of game (Forestry) so I cannot compare to the previews editions, but this one right here is a great game and I am pretty sure you won't regret getting it.

This has got to be the worst configured game i have ever played.
The controls do not work. Even tried switching to diffrent controls. didnt work. There is no option to even see what the controls are with out leaving the game and starting over. There is no dirrection or help of any kind.

A very solid game with nice mechanics and stable condition. I dont understand the bad reviews about this game, because its a Forestry Simulator as it should be.

pro:
- very stable, had at least my 60 fps
- interesting leveling system
- nice physics, graphics as good as usual for a simulator
- relaxing background music
- motivating upgrade system
- a lovely horse :)

cons:
- none

well, I played this game for an hour and I have to say I also enjoyed a lot ...
the game is very nice and not boring ... I love simulation games I haven't found
other forestry games to compare this with, but so far it looks pretty solid, and although
there's still a little something to improve the game is already very nice and
well organized. The commands to use are few and easy to remember, the game map
is very very big but thanks to the little browser that is located on the bottom
left of the game window you orient very well! There is a lot of work to do in the
forest, cutting trees, selling them and always in the company of a horse that
helps us in our work! Finally, you say, well if you are fans of the genre I'd
recommend it!
