Click for Gameplay Trailer - Review

Graphics:
+ nicely modeled and animated vehicles
+ nice light mood
- muddy landscape textures
- bad human animations
- bad effects

Atmosphere:
+ beautiful farm feeling
+ thanks to many licensed vehicles
- mostly lifeless game world

Sound:
+ good ambient noise
+ good vehicle sounds
- generally very thin soundscape

Balance:
+ three levels of difficulty
+ assistance at start
+ tutorials
- tough start
- little feedback

Missions:
+ farmland must first be purchased

- no competition

Game Size:
+ two huge areas
+ over 100 equipment and vehicles
+ forestry
+ co-op multiplayer
+ support mods
+ various fertilizer options
+ different animals

The Farming Simulator 15 is thanks to the new forestry one of the best - and still evolving too slowly.
The game engine has been redesigned, and the game can now display effects and graphics rendering, that are well ahead of the previous version.
The movement of vehicles in terms of speed and weight is more realistic case of activities.
The machines and equipment are also excellently intuitive. They responded beautifully to weight discrepancies, misplaced bales of hay and any objects.
There is a twelve-part tutorial, and on request also a small introduction at the beginning of a new career. However, these tools do not cover all areas. Where we sell our merchandise? Where do we find side quests? What's up with the forestry?

There is a feeling of absolute simplicity and satisfaction in growing your crops, harvest them and then always the nice money in the end. I just wish it was not so damn slow.
One big issue is the information that could help you with better prices. There are arrows pointing up, down or right, but they do not really say anything to make a strategic decision or where to save your plants.

You can farm anything alone or hire some workers that automate certain processes. But the workers burn your money like no others. If you don’t get good yields on your crops, you will be burning through your money in no time and even if you do manage good yields. A other nice new feature is, you can now manage forest areas in the game with a number of new vehicles and machines designed specifically for this activity: harvesting equipment, chain saws, chippers and even trailers.

If you are looking for a game where you can drive beautifully modeled tractors and all kinds of farming machinery around a farm, then you’ve found a nice game. Otherwise, you’d best be weary of Farming Simulator 15 as while you will be able to sink many hours into it, not all of it will necessarily be fun. Players new to the series and farming will require patience and trail and error in learning the various gameplay mechanics.

Score: 71 / 100

This new entry from Giants Software (makers of FS '13) is a HUGE improvement from the previous Farming Simulator. The graphics have improved and things look more realistic. For example, harvesting grain looks like grain and where you position the trailer lets the product build up in that part of the trailer before spreading out. Another example is that you can see the tire tracks on the ground, which is awesome. Another improvement is physics. The last game you could easily flip things over, but in this there is more weight and you can even feel a fully loaded trailer struggling to go up a hill. There are more vehicles, like a semi truck and forestry equipment, and more things to do, like cutting down trees with a chainsaw. You do have two maps to play as well, so there's more possibilities. Of course this game is fully moddable so there's even more trucks, tractors, and equipment to get for the game! I would recommend this game if you like farming sims. Trust me, this is quite the improvement from '13.

I do not recommend this game because of the following reasons:

-The workers AI has barely improved if any. They still hit everything at the end of the fields.
-They (the developers) still put stuff at the end of fields for workers to hit. I hoped they would've learned this by now.
-Cutting logs was a mod in the previous version, so nothing in the game is new. Though logging is slightly improved.
-Crops growing is not a fluent process just 4-5 different stages (like previous versions) , i was hoping for a fluent grow cycle by now.
-Washing tractors and such is the same as the growth: just a couple of stages of dirt on the tractors and etc.
-Crops still clip through tractor.
-Some Equipment that was present in previous version is not here now.
-Forestry is annoying with the physics in this game.
-Physics in this game are still extremely unrealistic at times (Tokyo drift got nothing on some of the tractors in this game).
-Collisions with vehicles are extremely unrealistic.
-Night isn't really night. Again same as previous version.
-Developers are really silent IMO even though there's a large community behind this game.
-Some bugs that should've been solved with some testing.



In short: the game hasn't improved enough to merit a positive review or to recommend it especially if you played the previous versions. You're paying for a game with slightly better graphics and a different HUD. If you're still in doubt don't buy it unless it's on sale.

Love the game, but to call it a simulator is not correct. As a former dairy farmer I can say that if it was this easy in real life, I`d still be doing it...
I`m sure that if I jump in my tracktor right now (Case IH 2007) and steer it into a brick wall that would be the end of that tracktor. AND ever so often it needs service, I cant just drive and drive forever on it. This "simulator" lacks the realism of real life farming and shuld therfore be called a farming/driving/arcade game!
But still, Its a great GAME that I can reccomend to all who is interestet in farming.

English:

A true successor to the series, although I must admit I am somewhat disappointed. It is still as addictive, but it is also still more of a leasure game rather than a simulator. They did manage to combine both Farming Simulator and Woodcutter Simulator into 1 game...but I'm not so sure how I feel about that...

The player takes on the role of a farmer, with substantial equipment and monetary resources already available as you start. As you try to make money you will find that it is pretty hard to go bankrupt, and before you know it you have the fields and equipment that justify the huge farm complex that you start off with. Then you notice that your equipment is getting dirty, which is a great addition to the game, even though it is only a visual effect and does not affect the way equipment is handling.

I have stated in previous versions how the game could really become a proper Farming Simulator, and I have read similar comments in the forums and from other players since, but apparently the developers haven't picked up on that; There is no crop disease, so whatever you put into the ground, it will come out healthy and ready to harvest, always. There is no soil quality, it is always in mint condition and the only purpose for manure and sprayers is to double / triple the yield. On top of that, you start off with a rediculous large farm complex that isnt justified by the 1 - 3 fields you also start off with.
The community has made some interesting mods that solve some of these problems, but I'd rather see them in the vanilla game.

For those that are familiar with the previous versions, here are some nuisances you'll encounter:
First off, remember the PDA? That little device in the bottom-left corner of the screen that showed you a map, demand, livestock info and all that? Ya, you now have to press I which will open an screen and pause the game. This is not much of a problem per se, but do you also remember the phones, where you can get information about just about anything, like a manual? When you interact with that you get a similar screen, but the game continues on the background. Which means that if you don't have the equipment to do something while your crops are growing, you will either have to go on a long strawl or read every page at the payphone; No more checking demand, livestock, etc while you watch your favourite handyman take the wheel of your combine...

All in all a good game, but in my opinion it still does not live up to its name, and the developers seem to have other things on their minds than adding more interesting game mechanics.

Dispite all of this ranting I cannot help but give this a thumbs up, because it is true to its legacy, addictive as hell, and it looks great without ruining the game (hint to Egosoft).

Nederlands:

Een waardige opvolger van de serie, hoewel ik to moet geven dat ik enigszins teleurgesteld ben. Het is nog steeds verslavend, maar ook meer een nutteloos tijdsverdrijf dan een echte simulator. Ze hebben het voor elkaar gekregen om Farming Simulator samen te voegen met hun Woodcutter Simulator...maar ik weet niet hoe ik daar over denk op dit moment...

De speler stapt in de rol van een boer, met veel werktuigen en financiele bronnen beschikbaar al vanaf dat je begint. Terwijl je probeert wat geld te verdienen kom je er snel achter dat het moeilijk is om failliet te gaan, en voor je het weet heb je de velden en de werktuigen die passen bij het formaat van je erf en de gebouwen die er al sinds het begin staan. Dan valt het je op dat je werktuigen vies worden, een goeie toevoeging aan het spel, hoewel dit slechts esthetisch is en geen enkele werking heeft op de werktuigen.

Ik heb in recencies van vorige versies al aangegeven hoe het spel een echte Farming Simulator kan worden, en ik heb sindsdien soortgelijke opmerkingen in forums en recensies van andere spelers gezien, maar blijkbaar hebben de ontwikkelaars daar niets mee gedaan; Je planten kunnen niet ziek worden, dus wat je ook in de grond stopt, het komt er altijd kerngezond uit. Er is geen grondkwaliteit, het is altijd in perfecte staat en het enige doel van de mest en sproeiers is het verdubbelen / verdrievoudigen van je oogst. Daar komt nog bij dat je met een belachelijk grote boerderij begint die niet overeen komt met de 1-3 velden waarme je begint.
Er zijn een aantal interessante mods gemaakt door de spelers die veel van deze problemen oplossen, maar ik zou het spel liever aangepast zien worden zodat het niet nodig zou zijn.

Voor hen die bekend zijn met de vorige versies, hier zijn wat irritaties die je tegen zult komen:
Ten eerste, ken je de PDA nog? Dat kleine apparaatje links ondering je scherm waarop je de kaart, prijzen, je veestapel enzo kon vinden? Ja, die is dus weg. Nu moet je op I drukken om een venster te zien waar datzelfde beschikbaar is, alleen wordt het spel gepauzeerd. Dit is niet per se een probleem, maar herinner je je de telefoons nog waar je informatie over alles kon vinden als een soort handleiding? Als je daar nu gebruik van maakt krijg je een soortgelijk scherm, maar het spel blijft op de achtergrond doorgaan. Dit betekent dat als je geen werktuigen hebt om jezelf mee te vermaken terwijl je velden aan het bloeien zijn je je of dood verveelt terwijl je wacht, een lange wandeling moet gaan maken of elke pagina in de telefoon moet gaan lezen; Niet meer kijken wat de huidige prijzen zijn of het voedsel niveau van je veestapel controleren terwijl je je favoriete knecht achter het stuur van je combine laat.

Al met al een goed spel, maar naar mijn mening is het nog steeds de naam niet waardig, en de ontwikkelaars hebben iets anders aan hun hoofd dat interessante spel mechaniek.

Ondanks al dit geklaag kan ik het niet helpen dit product aan te raden, omdat het in de lijn van de serie valt, verslavend als wat is en er grafisch geweldig uitziet zonder dat dat ten koste gaat van het spel (hint naar Egosoft).

This game is so much fun!!!! but.....
It's too easy to get money from cutting down trees. You can simply plant trees like PIR(I don't remember the nam) next to the lumber station, and cut down it with your chainsaw, grab it up with a whatever vehicle and bring it to the pond to sell it. You can get 40k~90k from each tree, and it only cost 7k to plant a tree. It's like ATM machine where you don't have to grow crops anymore, just sit there and cut trees then you can be miliionare!
BTW, there're some bugs occured. When you try to cut down a tree with a chainsaw, if you are aiming it too low, the chainsaw will cut into the ground and the game will crash.
Anyways, the game itself is compatibly realistic, I would recommend it if certain bug can be fixed.

This is a great game!
This game is one of my favorite simulation games ive ever played!
Day 1: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 2: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 3: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 4: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 5: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
Day 6: You finally have enough money to buy that long coveted field... Oh look here is a cool looking tractor.. lets buy it!
Day 7: You start out, harvesting your one field and trying to scrape out enough money to buy another field.
I'm sure you get the pattern...

Pros:
Steering Control and Camera angles are perfect
Somewhat realistic looking tractors
You can turn off crop withering
Maps are perfect size
Easily Moddable (And I mean lotsssss of mods)
Income system works great
Terrain on the starter maps is perfect
Graphics are great
You can hire workers to harvest for you

Cons:
Gameplay is somewhat unrealistic (You run into a car going 40mph and you bounce back)
Headlights are kind of glitchy at night time
Speed is slightly unrealistic

Its a great game! I definately reccommend it. The Pros outway the Cons

The krauts have truly stepped up their game with this one. They've added the classic "lizard: piqup truck" and chainsaws so you can chop down those pesky green ♥♥♥♥s. All in all better than the last one via gameplay and visuals solid 8/10 from me. Get some bros and get farming.

Peaceful game to play, I'm still not done w/ this one. There are a few things I would like to see fixed (or updated).


Rewards for missions don't seem balanced:

Example it'll ask you to deliver 98 tons of some resource & the reward is 12k. The thing is you'd probably be better off sellign when the market is up, than to ship 196,000 pounds of grain. Seriously, that's like 5 healthy fields, and there's something like a 9 minute timer when you find the "job" on the job's board.
-- Mission rewards need help / balance.

It would be nice to be able to tell a worker "Last Row" or something, so that you can give a command to stop when it hits the end of the field / strip.

I like the wood working, but picking up objects could use a bit of help, perhaps a 'reset' option (even if that means sending it back to the sore) . . . possibly a fee to have it sent back is fine too, there are just times when objects get stuck.

The part I'm 'partially' dreading is that I've seen so many versions of this game, it does not seem to be as up to date as it shoud & I'm concerned it is just being re-released with new titles to milk steam sales & not legitimately being developed as a stand alone title.

-- Why not just update Farm Simulator? New label, new set of sales?
-- I've recently changed my recomment from "Yes" to "No" apparently, the developers aren't done ruining the game yet.
