About This Game

Whether you specialise in grain, fruits or even maintaining your own dairy farm, in Farming World you have the ultimate choice on how you shape your business. With dozens of seed types to choose from and an extensive stock market listing, you’ll have to adapt to become profitable. With plenty of seeds growing at different seasons you’ll need to stock up so you can sell when produce is at a high demand.

But as you continue to increase your profits that small patch of land you started with is not going to cut it. In this farming simulator PC game, you’ll need to expand your farms reaches across the map. Land can be purchased if you’re wealthy enough but for those with a limited budget you might be better off renting the land until you can afford to own your entire farm. As you obtain more fields to work in, you’ll have to construct roads which allow your vehicles to navigate to the correct patch of land so they can harvest and maintain the fields.

In order to maintain your farm you’ll need to construct a selection of buildings, of which you will have over 40 to construct including; greenhouses, bakeries, butchers and more. You’ll also be able to purchase animals from the traditional chickens and cows to the more unconventional domestic turkeys and ostriches.

Features:

  • Develop road networks for your vehicles to use
  • Purchase and rent land
  • Over 30 different types of seeds to plant
  • Over 40 building types
  • 12 Different animals to purchase
  • Take on contracts to earn more money
  • Detailed weather reports

I am really enjoying this game. It's a fun game to load up and play for a bit. I did find that starting for the very first time was a bit hard. The game doesn't teach you very much, but after playing a few games you get the hang of it. I would recommend this game if you have some time to kill and just want relax with a (some what simple) fun game.

It's boring. It's godawfully boring. I'm sure that most anyone who's considering this game has read the other reviews- which nullifies my two cents...but... I have to warn potential buyers anyways. I honestly think Farming Simulator 15 is a better purchase. But all this opinion is useless if I don't say why. So, let me start off. I got this from the Humble Bundle (despite this, still a wonderful organization, I recommend it totally.) Which means I paid what I wanted for it. It wasn't even worth it if I paid a single cent. The only redeeming factors was that I got other better games from the bundle.

On a first glance, looks interesting. A nice little farming simulator. I figured I could have some fun, set up some automated chains, so on and so forth until I built a budding farming empire. I pursued this dream for as long as it took to install the game, run it, and then play a bit of tutorial and freeplay. Then, having gotten bored from waiting for my crop to grow, watering it, picking a random pesticide because the game asked me to, and then watch a little harvester make it vanish, and suddenly I had some crops, which I could then click a button to make them turn into money. Maybe...just maybe that would've been acceptable...if that wasn't the entirety of the game. There was no point in doing anything past that. Money was pointless. I could make a new building for something or other, but there wasn't really a reason to. I could try to make more money just for the point of having it, but it's not fulfilling in the slightest. Instead, I'd wish for my time back.

The point I'm trying to make is, the most satisfying thing this game (and from what I've seen, the company in general) can give you is the satisfaction of uninstalling it, and never bothering to install it again. I've not checked the developers forums, or anything of the like, but I see no signs thus far of any developer response to the community, no updates to try and make the game better. Just a quick cash in with a cheap boring game with no substance.

However, all that said, all the malice I have for the game said and done, I'm happy to change my opinion and review if the developers provide something to respond to the community- anything to prove that they actually care about the game and its players. Otherwise, don't waste your money on this game. It doesn't deserve it, and its just sending the message that this game and other cash cows can get away with giving the consumers nothing of any real value. It's sh*t, and it's not even good enough to fertilize the cash crops its supposed to bring in.

This game is just plain boring. Even the hardest Difficulty is VERY Easy, just farm animals and win. It seems like it is just a rip off of some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ Facebook game.

Ok ill burst the bubble.

Most look at the screenies and think is this a facebook game?

Answer is yes, graphics and gameplay is totally facebook.
You even click stars that appear on the ground!

All you do is lay a field , click harvest etc, and do the same again, once money is earned you can buy a second field and repeat.

This is my first impression of such a short play but this is the game straight away soon as you start playing, this is just my honest impression.

As for bugs, yes there are bugs, like fields getting stuck and wont grow, only option you have is to restart the field all over again, this means it could actually bankrupt you and game ends.

The timer does not stop for everything either, you could miss a step on your field because a pop up window opens and you have missed the timer on your field to click to send it into the next stage.

I love these type of games but i am being honest here after only playing this game a short while, so yes this is a early impression.

Games like this belong on facebook not on steam in my opinion.
